Makeover: Summer Glowing Skin

Unsure of how to wear your makeup this summer?  Here's a look that is easy to do and doesn't take up a lot of time.  It's simple, it's clean, it's glowing, it's perfect for summer!  Check out pictures of my beautiful sister Laura who let me give her a summer makeover. 


Products Used:

- Korres Quercetin & Oak Age-reversing Primer
- Revlon Photo Ready Foundation (008 Golden Beige) and Clinique Bronze Bronzing Gel for Face (mixed together)
- MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural (Medium Plus) to the t-zone area.  I avoided Laura's cheeks to keep the look a little more dewy and not so powdery
- MAC Mineralize Skinfinish (Sunny by Nature) to the areas where the sun would naturally hit: the forhead, temples, top of the cheeks, and nose
- CARGO Blush (Topeka) to the apples of the cheeks, blended back towards the temples
- Beauty Addicts Glimmer Sheer Express Illuminizer on top of cheekbones
- MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural on top of Beauty Addicts Glimmer Sheer Express Illuminizer


- It Cosmetics concealer (Tan) for under eyes and eyelids, Benefit's Powerflauge to set undereyes
- MAC Paintpot (Rubenesque) on eyelids
- Elizabeth Arden eyeshadow (Teak) in the crease
- MAC eyeshadow (shroom) and on top of Rubenesque and into corners of the eyes
- Makeup Forever Aqua Eyes Eyeliner (Star Black)
- Cover Girl Lash Blast Volume Waterproof Mascara (Black)


- BH Cosmetics Waterproof Lip Liner (Earth)
- Bite Beauty Lip Shine (Prosecco)
