5 Makeup Looks for the City: Look 1

Posted on


It's been a long time since I've posted anything beauty-related, so I thought I'd start a little series of posts composed of five looks that would be perfect for the city...

The first look that I shot is one of my everyday looks that includes a poppy red lipstick and cat eye.  I always try to balance out my makeup by keeping only 1-2 things in focus, so I kept everything else simple besides the red lip.  I love orange-y reds for summer because they really help to make your skin look clear and they complement basically all skin tones.


base, Maybelline BB Cream 'Medium'; Bareminerals i.d. 'Medium 3'
eyes, L'Oreal Telescopic Eyeliner; L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara
lips, Kiko Frosted Look 'Rossetto 03'
eyebrows, Maybelline Define-a-Brow 'Medium Brown'
highlighter, Benefit High Beam
jumper, Zara


Hope you give this look a try!

Emma

  4. Seems so simple to do, but looks so pretty! I'll have to give it a try. I especially love the lip color... I've been on the hunt for the perfect orangey-red lipstick for a while now, yours seems perfect :)
