I started with just a basic concealer and Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer in Sand. I created the iridescent look, by using colour products that have a natural sheen to them. I used amber lights eyeshadow on the lid into the crease, then used teddy liner and smudged the upper lash line with a mix of cork and espresso shadows. I used cork in the crease/outer corners of the eyes as well (all MAC products). The amber lights and teddy both have a touch of shimmer, so they really 'shine' naturally and nicely when the light hits your face. I rediscovered a blush colour that I really like - it's petal power blush by MAC. In the container it looks like a bright coral pink with shimmer. However, it applies as a sheer pink-coral with a beautiful shimmer effect. It's the perfect summer night or summer garden party blush. For the lips, I wanted to create the effect of natural warmth. I decided to apply Boldly Bare lipliner and fill in my lips with this shade. I then applied Strength lipstick over top - both MAC. I really love this look!!! It's also the perfect summer into fall cross over look - I look forward to creating this look again!!! :)

Summer Night Look
Summer makeup is light and fresh and I love pops of colour for summer. I especially like makeup for summer evenings - I find that the best summer night look is slightly iridescent, slightly warm, yet very natural and 'fresh'. I created a look that incorporated all these elements and I loved the end result.
