Playing With Brights
Happy Friday! It’s a very exciting one not only because it is the start of the weekend but because 1) I have a new video up on my Youtube channel finally and 2) I am doing a ace of the day which I haven’t done in forever. I decided I want to try and do more of these since it gives me an excuse to play with my makeup collection and try out different looks just because. Right now this is my go to summer look and the items I use whenever I go out or something. I have it in a routine where I can get it done quite fast and be out the door. So let’s just jump right in to what is on my face shall we…

My look I wanted very minimal but a nice pop of color. For me summer I always love everything bright and pops because the sun is always shinning. I also don’t like so much makeup because of the hot and humidity that it will either melt off or you’ll be a sweaty mess. I finally found a compromise and was quite happy with the result. I start off with my eyes lately because I seem to need more practice in this area and if I already apply my base I just mess up and have to wipe it again so I finally learned eyes first. I’ love to know how you do your makeup order. So starting with eyes I didn’t want a very visible look so I started off with a champagne cream eyeshadow as a base and apply a light peachy pink all over my lid then a matte brown lightly blending it in my crease for a subtle smokey effect. I try my best with winged eyeliner but slowly I am getting better and it’s starting to look somewhat good. I’m then going to use mascara and volumize my lashes. Once the eyes are done I do my eyebrows and I’ve been loving just filling them in slightly and since they are nicely shaped at the moment it is super easy for me.
I then start off with the base and apply a primer with my hands all over my face and my oily areas to try and stay matte all day. I use a foundation brush to apply the foundation but sometimes I substitute it with a BB Cream so try that if you don’t want something so heavy. I don’t apply this too thick so I am fine. The concealer is cream and a perfect match so I apply it as a v shape on my under eye circles and blend it in. Lastly I take a fine milled powder with a large powder brush and dust it all over to set it in and be somewhat matte all day. The contour and highlighting is so complicated for me nowadays but I do it very lightly. I take a bronzer first to give some color then contour my cheeks with a angled blush brush which I also use to apply highlight and my choice of blush for a rosy fresh glow. After that I apply lip balm to moisturize my lips and apply the lip color which is a bright hot pink shade. I kept the whole makeup look neutral but made it pop with the bright lip shade. The final step is I take a setting spray and apply it all over to finish it off and set everything for all day and make it last through the humidity and heat from being outside.
I also linked all the products I already have reviews up if you want to see my thoughts on the makeup separately. If you want to see how I actually did the makeup well I have a Get Ready With Me I just filmed inclusding my sumer makeup, how I do my hair and also an outfit which you can watch here or down below.
That’s my face of the day. I really enjoyed this and found it so fun. This also gives me a reason to play with makeup more often and do some practicing also not letting my makeup go to waste being displayed on my vanity all the time. I hope to do more of these and maybe try and experiment with more looks. Let me know if you like them and want to see something else like. Also don’t forget you can watch my video here. Have a lovely weekend and hope some of you spend the time playing with makeup like I plan to.
What is your summer makeup look like this year?
