Soft Summer-esque Makeup

I just wrote about a cool app called 'plum perfect' in my last post!  It's a fantastic little app that recognizes all the elements of your personal colours based on a selfie!  When I got my photo analyzed, I noticed that most of the colours fit in perfectly with what the colour analysis world sees as the 'Soft Summer' Palette.  Basically, my recommended colours were soft neutral pics, cooler tones for the eyes and pink toned blushes.  I decided to create a makeup look based on the results I got from the App - I also tried to use the colours they recommended (if I didn't have the exact makeup brand they suggested, I found my own dupe) - check it out:

Basically, I used my usual concealer and tinted moisturizer - on the cheeks I applied NARS Angelika blush (the app recommended MAC Dame blush, but Angelika is an excellent dupe - almost identical).  For the eyes, I used some MAC shadows - I applied copperplate shadow on the lid and then layered Satin Taupe shadow from the lid to the crease.  I applied Phone Number eyeliner and smudged Soot into the upper lash line.  I finished the eyes with Dior black mascara.  For the lips I used MAC Spice and Saint Germain lipstick (recommended by the App) - I have to say that I really, really like this as an everyday look and its getting me to consider trying the Soft Summer palette for a while!!!
