Summer Bright Lip

As you may know, I have been lusting after a coral lip colour. After receiving the Starlooks Lip Pencil in Tipsy in my Ipsy bag, I couldn't wait to try it. I decided to stick with my everyday make-up and add the lip pencil as a pop of colour.

Nars The Happening Palette
Wet 'n Wild Color Icon Bronzer in Reserve your Cabana
Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum
elf Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter
Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette
tarte Lights, Camera, Flashes Mascara
eyeko Skinny Liner in Black
Forever 21 Gold Eyelash Curlers
tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Magic
Sonia Kashuk Concealer
Model.Co Lipgloss in Berry Pink

I am loving this lip colour! It's fun without being too crazy, definitely wearable for casual summer days.

 I started by priming my face with elf Mineral Primer and my eyes with Urban Decay's Primer Potion. Then, I applied the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum with a Real Techniques Buffing Brush. I used Sonia Kashuk's concealer to cover any blemishes. Next, I applied Gstaad from the Nars palette all over my lid and along my lower lash line. I  used Night Star for an inner corner highlight. I blended WOS & Naked 2 from the UD Naked Basics palette together and placed that in my crease to blend the lid colour. Under the brow bone, I used Foxy and a bit of Venus. For more definition in the outer-V area, I used a mix of Naked 2 & Faint and then Coconut Grove to create a gradient. Next up, I lined my eyes with Eyeko Skinny Liner and set that with Crave. Following that, I applied the elf Under Eye concealer under my eyes. Then, I curled my lashes and applied the tarte Mascara. I set my face with powder, then applied the tarte blush in Magic on my cheeks, Laguna Bronzer as a slight contour, and Wet 'n Wild Reserve your Cabana as a highlight on my cheek bones, down the nose, and on my chin. Finally, I lined and filled in my lips with Starlooks lip pencil in Tipsy and covered that with Model.Co lipgloss in Berry Pink.

This was such an awkward post for me! I love make-up, but it definitely feels weird to take pictures of myself. Plus I think my neighbors saw & think I might be crazy....

Happy Summer!
