Keri Bette and Teal Minisofer of The Well Styled Life are showing the simple steps to get this fresh for Summer look. Check out the full tutorial shot by Genevieve Renee Photographie below!
This summer beauty look emphasizes a soft dewey skin, a peach sheen eye, soft cheek and a bold pink lip. With an emphasis on the dewey skin and bold lip, this look is perfect for a fresh, fun, feminine look.
Start by prepping the skin with moisturizer to keep the skin hydrated. Apply primer to the skin, I like Smashbox Photo Finish Primer. Apply your favourite foundation, on Gia we used MAC Studio Finish. Make any corrections to the skin using concealer under the eyes, around the nose and on any blemishes that may be causing any redness to the skin. Finish with a translucent powder.
Apply highlighter to create a dewey, fresh face. I started by using the Anastasia Cream Contour Kit. After blending the cream from the apples of the cheeks across the cheekbone, use the remaining product on sponge and apply to bridge of nose. Then apply Benefit High Beam with a brush, blending in an upwards motion along cheekbones. Do not apply shimmering highlight to any areas other than the apples of the cheek and cheekbones, it will give you a feverish look, as opposed to a glow. If you desire to apply highlight to the nose, forehead, lips or chin, make sure it is a matte product.
Using your favorite brow product, whether it be powder, pencil or pomade, draw a line along the bottom of the eyebrow, following the natural curve of the brow. I used Anastasia Dip Brow with an angle brush for optimal control of my lines. On the top of the brow, create a line from just in front of the arch of the eyebrow to the end of the brow. With your desired product, fill in the brow between these two lines. With the remainder of product on your brush, or light strokes of your pencil, create small featherlike strokes at the very start of the brow, sweeping your tool in an upwards, delicate fashion.
Create a gorgeous cheekbone with contouring below your highlighted cheekbone. Using the Anastasia Contour Powder Palette, I swiped a light brown contour right below the cheekbone with a powder brush. Blend the contour lines up towards the hairline to create a soft finish.
Brush a slight shimmer across the eyelids in a soft peachy pink. Keep the color below the crease of the eyelid, but using a blender eyeshadow brush, stroke the eyelid along the crease to blend the color.
Using a brown eyeliner, create a thin line from the inside corner of the eye to the outside corner. If you have trouble creating a clean line, use a clean angle brush and draw a line over the existing pencil line. This will smooth out the pencil line and give a nice crisp look.
Choose your bright, spring lip color, I used MAC for my fresh, airy look. Using a lip brush, start applying color at the center of the lip and slowly work towards the corners. Complete with a neutral, pink lip liner to create a soft edge to the lip.
Complete the look with a swipe of mascara. For weddings, my favorite is Maybeline Waterproof Mascara in Black, you shed those happy tears without worry.
