I don’t always do makeup Monday’s but when I do you know its something obsession worthy. Lately, my summer makeup obsession are the new summer shades in classic formulas from mark. They are super easy to use for a neutral makeup look that’s also summer friendly (aka heat proof).
mark. came out with a few new shades in our old favorites for the summer. 2 new shades of their All Time Eye Hookup Longwear Shadow in Pennylane and Quicksand and 2 new shades of their Gloss Gorgeous Stay On Lip Stain in Hush and Sassy. I have yet to try All Time Eye so I thought nows the time to pick up one of these new shades. I went with Quicksand, a neutral beige color knowing I could use it alone or as a base for a more dramatic look.
Word On All Time Eye in Quicksand: It’s really easy to apply. The design is a wand like you would see for like concealer. I apply it all over my lid and underneath and then using my pinkie I blend into the skin by lightly patting so there’s no hard lines. I recommend applying one eye at a time.
Word on Gloss Gorgeous in Hush: I kinda forgot how much I like the Gloss Gorgeous formulas. I’ve gotten away from wearing gloss and really just wear balms or lipsticks, but Gloss Gorgeous is a thick gloss that’s not too sticky, that as it wears leaves a nice lip stain behind. So you can apply this before you leave and have a good look all day long! Hush is a really neutral light pink that wears almost sheer depending on your coloring. It’s just the lightest pink tint which I really like for summer.
Both of these new shades I picked up work really well for a neutral summer makeup look and are super long lasting. Especially work well for when you don’t really want to look like your wearing makeup (say at the beach/pool or playing in your summer softball league, etc.) These shades would also be really good for a makeup beginner. Additionally, they are super quick and easy to apply so when your too hot to do much of anything, reach for these.
For the my summer neutral makeup look I’ve paired these two with mark. Touch and Glow Shimmer Cubes, Avon Extra Lasting Concealer, mark. Saved By The Gel Waterproof Gel Liner, and Avon Big and Daring Waterproof mascara. Easily the quickest and simplest makeup look for summer that is definitely heat proof!
I wore this look my entire holiday weekend from a beer and brat fest to the beach to a wine and cheese party to more beach to fireworks and s’mores and beyond! When packing a weekender these wonders not only took up a small space in my makeup bag but also did the job when you want to look good!
