While Sunday is a day for pampering the skin and spending hours pinning makeup inspiration, I’m shifting from fashion to beauty this time. And finally revealing the big secret and help you to adopt the biggest makeup trend of this summer. Yes, I’m sharing my secret on how to get this beautiful glowy and radiant skin. You all well know summer is the time to show off your skin, shine and look life through the pink lenses.
SUMMER BEAUTY AND MAKEUP TRENDS
I already wrote about the summer beauty and makeup trends some time ago, when I showed you how to wear a pop of bright color on your eyelids and look fashionable not funny. Ps. In case you missed this blog post check it here. You certainly don’t want to miss the bright, colourful makeup trend, do you?
Anyway, as you should now by now, this season makeup should be bright, fun (not funny though!), glowing, exaggerated and with an attitude. In short, whatever beauty trend you decide to go for this summer, you have to wear it with a confidence. I repeat, this season the makeup is all about an attitude and your personality. And it’s certainly not for the shy people.
Well, there is a fashion trend that will work for girls who don’t want to wear bold makeup, too. Actually, this trend is all about the natural beauty. And radiant, healthy looking skin. Skin that doesn’t look like a gray sheet of paper but a beautiful blooming rose. Silky, rosy, radiant and dashing.
GLOW FOR IT
Yes, you should glow this summer. Wait, don’t get me wrong. This doesn’t mean you should let your foundation to oxidise and wear that greasy coating on your face. Grease and sweat have nothing to do with the glow and shine we are looking for.
And you still need the tissues for wiping off the grease from your face.
HOW TO GET RADIANT SKIN
I got so many questions on how to get my healthy looking skin. And this radiant glow. In short, there are 3 things you need to do to get my look. Well, 4 at first.
1# PROFESSIONAL CARE
Visit a dermatologist regularly. You all know I go for a laser treatment to get rid of any acne and spots one in a while.
2# SAY NO TO DIRTY FACE
Wash your face when it’s dirty. That could mean twice or three times per day. It depends on your skin and the makeup you wear. I wash my face twice when I don’t wear any makeup and three times when I wear makeup. I always take off all the makeup second thing I come home. Ps. do the double wash each time you wash your face.
3# PREP YOUR SKIN
Moisturise and hydrate your skin. Put on the mask for a healthy glow. You can find all the products I use in the gallery above. Make sure you browse all the way through the gallery, so you don’t miss any product.
4# THE GLOWING DUST
Put on the translucent powder and the highlighter. I bet you have already heard of the baking technique. If you ask me that baking or cooking, or whatever you want to call it is a bulls*. You don’t need to do all those steps. Simply put on a combination of the matte setting powder and silky finishing powder (I have done this for my latest picnic shooting. The blog post about that picnic is coming up soon, meanwhile check my look on Instagram). Surely, if you have spots, then use a cushion, too. Note this: you will get the best results if you use the powder first and foundation second. I did this for this set.
SHOP AND WEAR MY MAKEUP
In this makeup story, I’m wearing Dior Forever Perfect Cushion 010 Ivory (shop here), bare minerals INVISIBLE LIGHT™ TRANSLUCENT POWDER DUO (shop here), Dior FOREVER & EVER CONTROL LOOSE POWDER (get it here). And also the 012 pink DIORSKIN NUDE AIR LOOSE POWDER HEALTHY GLOW INVISIBLE LOOSE POWDER. You know, the glowier the skin the better. You can get Dior healthy glow loose powder here.
Although I must say, the bare minerals powder duo alone would do just fine. But I simply couldn’t resist tapping the Dior loose powder with that soft puff.
LIPS, EYES AND LASHES
As it goes for the lips. I couldn’t resist no to wear another makeup trend of the summer. The bold orange-red lips. I used a mixed of matte 999 red lipstick from Dior (get here) and a touch of 610 SUNNY MATTE under the red. You can get the sunny yellow lipstick here. Ps. Make sure you check my previous blog post on how to apply the red lipstick over here.
Finally, the eyes, lashes and brows. As usual, I went for my on-the-go makeup look and applied Burberry eyeshadows (get them here), Dior mascara (shop here), Dior Maximizer (find here) and Dior brow pencil (shop here). Oh, almost forgot about my nails. I’m wearing DIORLISSE ABRICOT SMOOTHING PERFECTING NAIL CARE (shop here).
IN THE ROSE GARDEN
Finally, some little fun facts from this photo shooting.
1# I thought standing there under the pink roses and taking a selfie, and a bunch of photos from under would be a very good idea. Surely, I got many beautiful photos, but my hair. Oh, you should have seen my hair. It was full of dry and withered rose-leaves. I swear I felt so stupid while my mother was getting them out of my hair. You know what I mean, like monkies at the zoo. I should probably add the see no evil monkey and an emoji with tears of joy now.
2# Anyway apart of the roses in my hairs a bee situation happened, too. If you watched my Insta story the other day when I was playing golf at the golf course, you know what I look like when a bee starts flying around my hair. Unfortunately, I wasn’t holding a golf club in my hand this time. Yet, trying to scare off the bee with my pink bag wasn’t the best idea either. Luckily the bee didn’t attack me.
