Spring/Summer Look #1 Quick everyday look with colored liners

Hi everyone!

I am compiling a Spring/Summer Look Book featuring a series of looks and tutorials for this season. These will be my  interpretations of the Spring/Summer 2011 makeup trends and will be covering looks suited for different occasions – from light daytime looks to evening party looks.

Inspired by the colorful trends this season, I have already done looks with

These will be added to my Spring/Summer 2011 Look Book along with other looks that I will be doing in the coming days.

Hope you enjoy reading 🙂

The #1 look is a super quick everyday look which is pretty much everyone’s on-the-go makeup but with the added pop of a brightly colored liner. This season is all about bright colors- orange, fuchsia, turquoise, lime green and the list goes on. While black and brown are great colors for everyday lining of the eyes, they look very ‘regular‘. Adding a brightly colored liner instantly glams up your whole look without much of an effort.

Colors to look out for are brighter shades of blue ,green & purple.

On a well moisturized face, apply tinted moisturizer or light foundation, line upper lash line with black/brown pencil liner and apply a bright colored liner(turquoise, ice blue, parrot green, teal, purple,  silver/gold)  on the lower lash line ( or alternatively, bright liner on upper lash and kajal on lower lash line) and finish off the look with a little bronzer/blush and tinted lip balm/gloss.

    • Oily? A powder based formulation! They must have gone really bad with the formulation. This one is mineral based I think- so its not powdery also. It has a baked finish and it blends like a dream. I use only this in a lot of my posts. Do try it- I think you’ll like it
