How To Do Summer Makeup
Makeup artist Mandy Jhamat shows you how to create a fresh makeup look for the summer by incorporating vibrant yellows and golds on the eyes and fresh rosy shades on the cheeks and lips. Use these techniques to look your best and stand out in the summer.
So, now, we're going to do a summer makeup. Really good colors for summer are yellows and golds, so we're going to incorporate that into our kind of fresh summer look. So I'm going to use two quite bold yellow colors here.
One is a cream Kryolan Supracolor, and the other is a matte solid yellow. We use it on the eyes. Any kind of cream eye shadow will be fine.
Just try and keep it like a primary yellow, as opposed to kind of a soft gold. This is trying to go for a kind of bold yellow color here. So, the skin's been prepped.
It's just nice and dewy and a little bit of contouring on the skin. Now, we're going to start with the yellow. You want to apply the color.
Just dab it into the kind of middle of the eye. Because it is a cream, we'll just blend it a little bit with our finger. Take it right up to the socket and then whatever's left on your finger, just nudge it a tiny bit above the socket line.
Then we're just going to blend that. Soften the edges. You don't want to see where the color kind of starts and ends, but keeping the middle part of it, the most intense yellow.
We're going to go over the color with the eye shadow. A nice rounded brush, and again the intensity of the color is in the middle. So it's supposed to just be like a little brush of color.
Then it's fading out to the sides. A good technique is if you load the middle of the brush up and then use the kind of spiralling technique, that will really add intensity to the color without you spreading the color all over the eyelid. Then, just repeat the same thing on the other eye.
So, we have finished the eyes off with the yellow eye shadow on both, and then just put one or two coats of lengthening and thickening mascara on the lashes. So, eyes are done. We're going to do the cheeks now.
For the cheeks, we're going to go for kind of a rosy color. So, Nana, if you'll just smile for me, keeping the color in the kind of apples of the cheeks, not too intense because we've got enough intensity on the eyes, just a bit of softness on the cheeks. If you place the color first in the apples of the cheeks and then just gently blend out into kind of a circular motion, okay, that's it with the cheeks, nice and simple.
The lips are going to also carry the kind of rosy theme. We're going to do a lip stain. This is kind of one of my favorite things to do.
It's where the lip color is intensified on the inside of the lips and then gets less intense. Okay, so I'm going to start with kind of a red-brown pencil. This is going to go in the inside of the lip.
This is where most of the intensity of the color is going to be. So imagine you've had lots of red wine and you're getting that nice kind of stained look. Then, we're going to do the same on the upper lip.
It kind of helps to hold the pencil at an angle. Then we're going to go over that color. I've chosen two different lip colors which I'm going to blend together.
One is kind of a rusty orange, and the other one is kind of a brown, which I'm going to mix together and add to this lip. Once you've mixed it with a brush this time, you're going over the kind of the same area and just bringing it out slightly. So, you want to kind of create a bit of a depth to the color you've already put on there.
I did the lip stain for another photo shoot, which you can actually go in and go really dark if you wanted to be a bit more adventurous. I did it with black on the very insides. Okay, I'm happy with the placement of that.
Now, I'm just going to take my finger and we want to soften the edges and then dab, because we want the very outer edge to not have much color at all. Then, the same on the top lip, just to finish, I'm just going to go back in with the original pencil that we had, just to highlight the darker inner lip there, because you might have started to blend the two colors together a little bit. That's our summer makeup.
If you really wanted to go more dramatic with this
