FD Presents: Pink Summer Makeup

We love nothing more than updating our summer makeup look, so today we’ve decided to show you our favourite go-to look for the season. Think rose gold eyes and the perfect pinky pout…


To get the look, start by applying a Technic High Lights to freshly moisturised skin to give a ‘stone’ effect. This will help to give the skin a fresh, dewy look, whilst also adding structure to the face. Next, it’s time to apply Rimmel’s Lasting Finish 25h foundation using a soft makeup sponge – this technique will both blend the product in evenly as well as create a fresh, skin-like appearance.

To add warmth to the face try applying The Guerlain Terracotta warm-toned matte bronzer to the skin. For a more chiselled night time look lightly contour the hollows of the cheeks, blending the product up the sides of the face and into the hair line. To add more of a glow to the skin sweep the Body Collection Bronzing Highlighter across the high points of the face. Pop it in the inner corners of the eyes brighten the face.

Next it’s time to add a bit of colour to the look. To do this, Steph is using the metallic shade in the Fashionista custom palette called Couture. Simply wash it over the lids using a fluffy brush for a subtle, lived-in look. To complete the eyes, add a light coating of the Maybelline Volume Express Colossal mascara. Layer up for something a little more intense.

To keep this makeup look sleek and put-together, groom the brows using the Rimmel Brow This Way Styling Gel. Brush the brows upwards and across for a bold, yet natural look.

Finally, it’s time to add colour to the lips and perfect your pout. MACs Cremesheen Lipstick in Creme Cup is the perfect nude/pink shade that suits a variety of skin tones. Add a touch of the Shiesedo Luminizing Lip Gloss in PK406 to give an extra sparkle to your smile!
