Get an effortless summer glow with gloMinerals! This look is great for day or night and is versatile on all skin tones with foundation and concealers correctly color matched. This tutorial was created and features our makeup artist and esthetician, Desirae, who may be booked for makeup application and facial appointments.
STEP 1 – PREP
Moisturizer – Eminence Red Currant Protective Moisturizer SPF 30 (during the day) or Balancing Moisturizer Duo (at night) diluted with gloMinerals Moist Hydration Mist (if needed) to keep makeup looking flawless throughout the day or night.
Primer – Tinted Primer in Light – Apply pea size amount to entire face. A tinted primer offers more coverage while providing a smooth surface for foundation and concealers.
Color Correct – Corrective Camouflage Kit – Using the Dual Foundation/Camouflage Brush, apply the following colors to corresponding areas (as needed):
Yellow conceals purple or darker toned shadows and can be applied underneath the eye area to conceal dark circles, on purple/blue blemishes, or on dull areas of the face, where a brightening effect is desired.
Green cancels out any redness and should be applied to areas prone to redness, such as cheeks and around the nose and mouth. Also recommended for any red toned blemishes.
Peach cancels out any dark toned shadows and can be used to conceal dark circles underneath the eyes or hyperpigmentation, such as freckles or sun damage.
STEP 2 – BASE
Foundation – Natural Light: Satin – Apply pea size amount over entire face. This foundation is highly pigmented, so a little goes a long way.
Conceal/Contour – Camouflage Oil Free Concealer in Golden – Apply underneath eyes in a triangle shape, down towards the center of the nose.
Contour – Tawny Light Pressed Powder – Use around forehead, underneath cheek bones, and along jaw line in a 3 shape. Remember to blend thoroughly. Although this is a foundation, it also doubles as contour/bronzer due to the high pigmentation. The pressed powder may also be used down the sides of the nose to create a more narrowing effect.
STEP 3 – BROWS
Brows – Brow Quad in Brown – Line the bottom half of the brow with the darker brown using the Dual Brow Brush. Creating the under arch, blend upwards to create a softer, less bold tone. Use the lighter brown to fill in the front and top of brow.
Conceal – Camouflage Oil Free Concealer in Golden – Using concealer and a small brush, clean up any excess brow powder to create a clean defined shape.
STEP 4 – EYESHADOW
Banana – Use along brow bone and blend downward.
Sand Pebble – Use as a transition color and sweep across entire lid.
Water Lily – Use on the outer corner of lid and crease blending upward.
Mahogany/Kona – Use Mahogany or Kona along the top and bottom lash line.
STEP 5 – EYELINER AND LASHES
Liquid Ink Liner in Black – Line top lid
Lash Thickener & Conditioner – Apply one coat to each eye and let dry
Lash Boosting Mascara – Apply one coat to each and let dry (apply another coat to cover any white left behind from Lash Thickener & Conditioner, if any)
STEP 6 – LIPS
Cedar Lip Liner – Line lips to lock in color and prevent any feathering or bleeding.
Rose Petal Lipstick – Fill lips.
Naked Lip Gloss – Apply a dab to center of lips to create an illusion of fullness.
STEP 7 – FINISH
Perfecting Powder – Apply lightly on entire face to set makeup and absorb any excess oils.
Moist Hydration Mist – Spritz lightly over face so makeup looks more natural and dewy.
