As soon as the mercury started rising we had lawn brands churning out volume after volume of catalogues with models clad in vibrant hues posing deliberately in the ways we are all too familiar with now. Lawn craze is nothing new in Pakistan but what I pay attention to the most is the models’ makeup. I always admire how the makeup artist is able to blend all the colours together to match anything the model wears.
So, today’s tutorial is inspired by a trend I noticed recently in lawn catalogs: Sultry side smoked shimmery neutral eyes paired with bright summer-y lips. I will be showing you same eyes and complexion with a variety of summer appropriate lip choices to showcase its versatility and give you some ideas.
Step By Step Tutorial
For face framing brows I filled mine in with Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade-Ash Brown. I had already primed my eyes with Makeup Revolution Fix and Focus Eye Primer-Matte, which is a decent enough drugstore option, and set it with Catrice Prime and Fine Translucent Loose Powder, which is now discontinued but remains a staple for me. I used Makeup Revolution I <3 Makeup Naked Chocolate palette, which an excellent affordable mix of neutral mattes and shimmers.
I recommend applying a matte cream shade (Smoothly) to the inner corner and brow bone first with a shader brush (Sigma shader E57). Your transition shade will blend into it seamlessly and if you wish add a shimmer to the inner corner later you will have a solid matte base to make it pop.
Blend a matte milky brown transition shade (Tob-le-rone) into your crease with a fluffy brush (Morphe MB23).
Pat on a caramel brown shimmer (Frosted Choc) to your mobile lid with a firm shader brush (Sigma shader E57).
Apply a warm matte dark brown (Sweet Shop) to your crease with the fluffy blender in Step 2 (Morphe MB23).
Smudge a black kohl pencil (Luscious Onyx) as close your upper lash line as possible.
Blend a dark matte brown (White) into your outer corner and slightly into your crease while joining it with the smudged liner and softening it with a round blending brush (DMGM Eye Smudge).
Using a pencil brush (Sigma Pencil E30) define your lower lash line with the crease colour in Step 4 (Sweet Shop).
Tightline (Luscious Onyx) and liberally apply mascara (Essence I Love Long Lashes Mascara) from root to tip.
Clean up under your eye with a wipe and spot conceal (Oriflame Rosemary and Tea Tree Oil Purifying Corrective Stick). Apply the foundation of your choice. I mixed Luscious HD Mineral Foundation-Ivory with Garnier BB cream-Light to get my perfect shade while keeping things light and dewy. I then set my entire face with Catrice Prime and Fine Translucent Loose Powder. A sweep of bronzer (Makeup Revolution Ultrabronze) across the high points of my face along with Colorstudio Pro Blush-Pixie Pink blended backwards from my apples was just enough to complement my bright lips.
Nude: Colorstudio Pro Color Rush Lipstick - Desire
Orange: Flormar Super Shine lipstick 502
Predictably, I liked the mauve combo best. This is a great way to flaunt your favourite summer pout with the lawn suit you achieved after many a fight with your tailor and of course lawn wars at the store.
Which lip colour do you love best for this season?
