Summer Day Make Up Look - Beauty How To - Makeup

Summer Day Make Up Look

Summer make-up is all about working with a few choice cosmetics to enhance the beauty you already have. The trick to great make-up is not in “the latest must-have” products, it is all about careful application and knowing what suits you.


Ditch foundation and conceal only where you need to. If you really need to even your skin tone, look for an ultra light organic tint. Your eyes are the most important element of this look so prep the lids with a fine dusting of a mineral powder. The highlighter - Sand - in our eyeshadow range is ideal.
Coat the lids in a “suits-everyone” warm sage, like our mineral-rich seaweed, and blend to just above the socket line. Dab a matt pink, like our shell into the very inner corners of the eye close the nose and blend carefully. Accent the brow-bone lightly with a nude shade, like Sand. All these shades are available in the Eyeshadow Quartet Ocean ($60).
The trick achieving the look above is definition. Using a warm brown pencil, like our Fairtrade certified liner in brown ($24) to soften the end slightly by dragging across the back of your hand and then gently pulling the eyelid taught, line from the centre of the top lash-line to the outer corner, extending very slightly in the direction of the brows. Then smudge using a clean eyeshadow applicator for a bewitching effect. Repeat on the bottom lashes. Coat lashes with Essential Care Mascara ($33) and using the same pencil, carefully make small feathery strokes across the brows in the direction the hair grows, being careful not to extend past the eye for a polished look.
Long lasting lips are all in the base so line the lips and fill with a soft lip-toned shade, like our Fairtrade certified lipliner in pink ($24). Using either a clean finger-tip or a lip applicator, smudge a glossy pink with a hint of shimmer, like our beautiful and nourishing Marshmallow over it for a light-catching pout with a fullness Mother Nature herself would envy. For a finishing touch and added glossiness, add our Lip Silk ($11).

Margaret’s ultimate make-up tip: Dab a small amount of the Marshmallow onto the apples of your cheeks and blend outwards for a healthy “outdoorsy” glow that can roll the clock back ten years. Just remember 'less is more' and build colour gradually.
