SUMMER SINSHINE STRIPES









Open back crop tee in neon orange and bandeau bra in hot pink via Victoria's Secret PINK | Giuseppe Zanotti Patent Colorblock sandal  | Woven east/west bright tote via Rebecca Minkoff  | H&M Skirt | J Crew bright pink bracelets | ASOS  spike stretch bracelet  | Crystalized nail ring via  Minusey | OPI nail polish in Y'all Come Back, Ya Hear | YSL Rouge Pur Couture lipstick in Rose Toupe

After yesterday's post I've gotten quite a few emails asking how I keep my make up from melting off my face Summer time. So, I decided to take this opportunity to talk a little about some of my tried and tested beauty tricks and favorite products. 

Face:
Normally I start with applying Laura Marcier Secret Finish Mattifying gel on a cleanse face, designed to control shine and keep your skin matte, it also helps to keep your make up in place. I've been using it for a while now and so far have not found anything that works better. Since I am not a big fan of foundation and only use it on very rare occasions, I skip it all together summertime and instead opt for a little concealer in a few strategic areas:) All time favorite is YSL Touche Eclat concealer, which provides a perfect amount of coverage and makes skin look absolutely luminous.

Cheeks:
I prefer to use cream blush summertime, I find that it stays on much better than powder. My favorite one at the moment is Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Cheeks and Lips in Pale Pink. Oh, and I know that most make up artists use a brush to apply cream blushers, but I actually like to use my fingers. I think it allows me to achieve a much softer effect and use a lot less product:)

Lips:
I love matte lipsticks, in my opinion, they stay on much better than regular lipstics or lip glosses. Normally, I start by applying a little lipstick using a lip brush, then lightly dab my lips with my finger for a more even distribution. Current favorite is Lancome Color Design lipstick in Stylista. 

Eyes:
Finally, I keep my eye make up minimal, most of the time I line my eyes using a water proof eyeliner like MAKE UP FOREVER Aqua liner and apply a little YSL Volume Effect mascara for some eyelash drama:) 


So, that pretty much completes my everyday look. If you have any questions about  products I use, shoot me an email, I will be happy to answer!




Keep on smiling,
Love,
Annabelle

Mademoiselle Wanderer said...

gorgeous look: I adore the bag

I was actually wondering before I scrolled down to your text of what kind of lipstick you are wearing in that post...Thank you for your beauty tips: you are blessed with your excellent skin: I cannot believe you hardly wear foundation and look that flawless & radiant. It must help not to layer on so much (looking at your skin). And for Bobbi Brown cheekpots, I think heat works better for blending so the direct approach with fingers makes it melt. If you look at Path McGrath tutorials, she always says she uses both hands & brushes (sorry...long story)

You seem to have an endless supply of beautiful, colourful, gorgeous outfits.
