Now that we’ve got our coveted beach waves, it’s time for step two in the summer bombshell transformation. I personally prefer a no-makeup makeup look. Natural and pretty. Nothing too severe. Plus I find that even a small amount of makeup can overwhelm my small features. Basically what I’m trying to say here is, I do not rock the smoky eye. My eyes get lost in the dark shadows and thick black eyeliner! So I rejoiced at this makeup tutorial, a wash of bronze shadow and a smudge of kohl eyeliner is definitely going to be my summer go-to. And when I’m feeling especially daring? A hot pink lip stain! They used Nars eyeshadow in Galapagos, and I love the natural smoky color it gives. I’m pretty sure a number of colors in the Naked Palette would do the trick (which I already have)… but I still want the Nars anyway!

What’s your favorite summer makeup look?
