1 // applied bb cream all over my face. i simply used my fingers, but get fancy and use a brush or beauty blender if you want!
2 // applied laura mericer mineral powder all over with flat top powder brush [this is the best combo ever and recommend it to everyone!!]
3 // filled in my brows with the milani brow fix kit. i have a tutorial for this --->>here!
4 // bronzed & contoured with the rimmel natural bronzer & my small tapered brush, just to give a little color but not all over my face.
5 // my favorite part, blush! this milani blush in luminoso is my absolute favorite right now.
i now understand the hype about it in the beauty community!
6 // next i applied the l'oreal 24hr eyeshadow in amber rush all over my lids. then added 'limit' from the naked 3 palette to blend the edges and add a little definition. you could use 'trick' from the palette for the lid color too, i'm just trying to use up product i found in the depths of my makeup drawer!
7 // no eyeliner today, just lots of black mascara! i've recently gone back to tried & true lash blast, it just works! [optional: add a highlight to your inner corners & brown bone, i used the one from the brow kit.]
8 // to finish off, i chose to bust out one of my old summer favorites, the revlon kissable balm stain in rendezvous! i love the way this color brings out the orangey tones in the blush and eyeshadow. plus it's more wearable than a red lipstick for summer and keeps my lips hydrated.
...and that's it! super simple, minimal products [for some, maybe makeup junkies anyway ;)] and perfect for summer. you can swap out your preferred foundations/bronzers/mascaras/whatevers, these are just what i'm loving and using daily! i especially love the minimal eye makeup and lips, they are low maintenance but make it look like you spent a lot more time getting ready.
this look would look amazing on blue eyes, but it flatters any eye color and skin tone! i hope you give it a try! if you do, tag @feelandflourish on instagram or use our hashtag #feelandflourish so we can find you! ++ let me know what are some good 'dupes' for the products i used here, i love learning about and trying new things!
thanks for reading & enjoy your day, wherever you are!
