Nadia Albano makeup tutorial: Get that summer glow – Vancouver Sun
Summer beauty is all about simplicity and minimalism.
This week, we wanted to show you a step-by-step tutorial on how to create the perfect summer glow using drugstore products.
Before you get started, apply a Maybelline Facestudio Master Primer on clean and moisturized skin.
Use a foundation brush to apply Cover Girl Vitalist Elixir Foundation onto the face to even out the complexion. This product offers an SPF 20, and leaves the skin looking radiant.
Using a fluffy skunk brush or a small powder brush, apply a Maybelline Facestudio Master Strobing Liquid Illuminating Highlighter onto the high peaks of the face (cheek bone, bridge of nose, brow bone) to created an illuminated and glowy finish. This technique is called strobing.
Contour the face using a matte bronzing powder with a cheek enhancer brush. The trick is to apply the contour below the cheek bone, forehead and jawline. This creates depth, contrast and definition to the face. I am using Joe Fresh Bronzing Powder.
Define the eyes by lightly contouring them with a neutral taupe brown coloured eyeshadow from the Maybelline Nudes Eye Shadow Palette. Next, curl the lashes with an eyelash curler and coat them with black mascara.
To brighten up under the eyes and to conceal imperfections around the face, try using CoverGirl Outlast All-Day Soft Touch Concealer. It’s creamy, smooth and natural looking.
Filling in the eyebrows is a very important step in creating this look, as the brows frame and draw attention to the eyes. Using the NYX Micro Brow Pencil, lightly feather on and fill-in the brows. I suggest using a colour that is one shade lighter than your natural colour for a more natural effect.
Apply NYX High Definition Blush in Soft Spoken onto the apples of the cheeks for a hint of colour. The general rule of thumb is to apply blush approximately two finger widths away from the nostril, then sweep the brush up toward the temple area.
Opt for a neutral, long wearing lip colour for a more casual understated look. I’m wearing NYX Lip Lingerie in Silk Indulgence.
A simple, natural summer glow.
