Makeup Monday: New Easy Summer Neutral Makeup

Makeup Monday: Easy Summer Neutral Makeup

Makeup Monday: Easy Summer Neutral Makeup

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!

Get The Look: Lauren Conrad Inspired Makeup Look For September

Lauren Conrad Inspired Makeup For September

Lauren Conrad Inspired Makeup For September

Yesterday I shared my inspiration for September (check it here), included was this makeup look from the LC Lauren Conrad September campaign.  I liked I it so much I decided to recreate it with products I had.

Lauren Conrad's Makeup for September

Lauren Conrad’s Makeup for September

The key points to recreate from Lauren Conrad’s look is her flawless skin, thick winged liner and a deep berry/Bordeaux lip.  I will never be quite so flawless but foundation is the right starting point to this look.

Avon Ideal Flawless Foundation For The Base

Avon Ideal Flawless Foundation For The Base

Face:  Avon Ideal Flawless Invisible Coverage Liquid Foundation in Creamy Natural, mark. Just Blushing in Dollhouse (no longer available try Avon Ideal Luminous Blush in Heavenly Pink) and for highlighter I used mark. Touch and Glow Shimmer Cubes in Coral.

Inspired Look With Pink Eyes, Winged Liner and Deep Lips

Inspired Look With Pink Eyes, Winged Liner and Deep Lips

Lauren’s eyes seem to have a bit more of a rose gold and bronze shading to them but I was inspired to just go with a light shimmering pink all over my lids.  The pink and burgundy play so well together in her outfit so well it inspired me to leave it just as is.  If you wanted to go more true to her look I would work in the mark. On The Dot pallet in Neutral in the outer V and middle of lid.  I used Lauren’s favorite mark. liner for the wing and lots of mascara to recreate her full lashes.

Eyes:  mark. Spring Fling Eye Pallet (contact to order), mark. On The Edge Hookup Liquid Liner in Cleo, Avon Big and Daring Waterproof Mascara in black.

Avon Beyond Color Lipstick In Revenge

Lips:  Avon Beyond Color Lipstick in Revenge.  Avon just re-released their Beyond Color lipstick in an updated formula and new shades along with classic favorites.  This shade Revenge is the perfect deep berry/bordeaux shade I’ve been looking for.  (and spot on for this recreation!).

This is definitely a look I’ll be wearing all September.  You can shop the products used here and check out the shop tab for all the promo codes available at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger 

BONUS:  Not sure if you’re as big of a fan of the LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s collection as I am.  BUT tonight they’ll be airing her first runway collection for the line live from NY Fashion week.  Be sure to head over to kohls.com at 7pm est to get the deets.  Download the app periscope to view on your device.  That navy moto jacket with the rose gold detail is calling my name!  I love how fun and creative this line is, they do a great job sticking with the esthetic and keeping things unique!

 

PS.  I’m going to throw this out there… Galaxy S5 camera is the WORST.  These images were taken with the front facing camera which is even worse then the backside.  But makeup pics and front facing selfie camera go together like pb & jelly!  I can’t believe what an inferior product Samsung made with this camera.  It rarely focus and the images are grainy and horrible even in natural light.  I’m too lazy to bust out my slr, set up a tripod and use my remote when I have a self facing camera in the palm of my hand.  If there was ever a reason to upgrade your phone this would be it… I despise it.  So sorry for the crappy images, maybe because I’ll be wearing this look all Sept. long you’ll see me in person and be like killer lipstick!
