Get the look: New romantic

A whisper of blush, rosy lips and lightweight complexion coverage create an enchanting summer makeup moment.

From beautifully flushed cheeks to perfectly pouty lips, layering soft pink tones creates a fresh and pretty summer look that you can easily take from day to night. Opt for a sheer wash of colour for daytime, then turn up the intensity with darker rose tones for an eye-catching evening vibe. Best of all, this makeup look is flattering across all skin tones and incredibly easy to wear. Here’s how to get the look.

Prep your base

For a lit-from-within glow, begin your makeup by priming the skin with a hydrating, skincare-infused primer, such as Smashbox Photofinish Vitamin Glow Primer. Besides extending the longevity of your makeup, the refreshing gel texture will instantly awaken tired skin.

Even out your complexion

Using a fluffy brush and a light hand, dust on PUR 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation in your closest shade. The combination of a lightweight primer with an airy powder foundation will help you achieve a very natural-looking finish — plus, your makeup will last longer, which is especially useful during the hot summer months. If you feel like you need more coverage, spot conceal with Dermablend Cover Care Full Coverage Concealer.

Go romantic with your eyes

For a look that’s flirty and flattering, apply the rosy shades from the Lise Watier Collection Beauté Nomade 9-colour Eyeshadow Palette onto the eyelids. For a precise application, use a small eyeshadow brush, and take care to blend well to avoid creasing. If you desire a more diffused look, pat the shadow on gently with your fingertips. Finish your eye look with a few coats of lengthening mascara for definition.

Dust your cheeks with blush

When working with rosy eyeshadow tones, selecting a complementary blush is key to creating harmony and balance. For long-lasting cheek colour, start with a light layer of translucent powder. Then, using a large, fluffy brush, apply a swirl of Lise Watier Collection Beauté Nomade Blush Powder to the apples of the cheeks, moving up towards the eyes for a subtle lifting effect.

Finish with a swipe of gloss

For luscious, full lips, finish off the look with a long-wear gloss, like Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumper in “Pink Punch” — the high-shine effect offers a beautiful contrast to the matte finish of your skin. Pretty as a picture.
