Summer Makeup

Summer makeup is about creating a dewy radiant glow, a touch of bronze to mimic a good sun tan, a little bit of sparkle and fresh bright colours to compliment the summer hues. I also like to mix it up by creating a strong smoky eye whilst keeping everything else fresh and pink. Keep your base luminous and you won't go wrong. And don't be afraid to go for a strong bright colour on your lips, like coral, with a tan it will look fabulous.
