Now entering my seventh straight month of summer weather, I figured it was time to show you what I do when upper lip sweat takes over my life. Instead of filming a video tutorial like a normal human being, I wanted to be a hip teen while I still can and decided to document the steps for this look through Instagram’s sister app Boomerang, so here’s a warm, glowy makeup face as expressed through gifs.
The summer sun always manages to make my forehead 3 shades darker than the rest of my face, yet I continue to try to combat this by applying sunscreen first. I’m still on the hunt for a more blendable, less white mineral sunscreen, but this Neutrogena one is much more usable when mixed with Mario Badescu’s moisturizer, which is a little heavy for regular use but really perfect when mixed with other liquid products in small portions. I don’t typically wear foundation or concealer, certainly not because I don’t need them, mostly because I touch my face too much and don’t particularly like the feeling of those products, especially in humid summers like Singapore and Boston.
There you have it— my take on the sunset eye trend (which really is not a new thing, guys, like people have been doing warm eye looks forEVER). It’s a really easy, fun look especially for the heat that’s creeping back up on us now it’s July. Hope you’ve enjoyed this gif tutorial— but seriously, should I keep doing these this way or conform and make videos instead? All feedback is welcome; I’ll be back with more makeup things soon!
