The Perfect End of Summer Makeup!

Looking for the perfect end of summer make up to show off your sun-kissed skin? Try this one! Specially created by Max Factor‘s Italian Make Up Artist team, it’s a killer for this end of summer..

First of all, a trick: mix your foundation with your face cream so as to make your foundation lighter and also more moisturising (which we all need at the end of the summer..).

Then, use two shades of foundation. Yes, two. A lighter one for the parts of your face that need light. A darker one to create some natural shadows and tan on the other parts. I personally used Caramel 85 and Warm Almond 45 of Max Factor Ageless Elixir Foundation + Serum (by the way, this product also has a SPF 15.. which again is perfect for the end of summer city sunshine..).

Apply powder. Creme Puff, 05 Translucent.

Then we used one of Max Factor’ “hero product“: the Flawless Perfection Blush, 221 Classic Pink, a blush with that perfect pinkish, peachy, coral shade that is just magic to warm up any summer tan (pale skin: use a small amount / tanned skins: use more). Apply all over the cheekbones and on the temples. Apply several times to “build up” the colour gradually and naturally into your skin.

The colour is so magical that you can also use it as eyeshadow on your eyes for a natural look!

If you want a more sophisticated/evening look, use three other eyeshadows to define your eyes a little bit more as shown below. The paler shades onto the brown bones, darker shades in the creed.

The result really makes the colour of your eyes pop out!

Lastly, we used the 2000 Calorie Mascara to create full volume on our lashes and finished off with the funny lipstick technique I told about you yesterday to create intense, multi-dimensional lips!
