I have my tried and true go to beauty looks, but I love when Summer rolls around because you can inject a little more color into your every day routine to make it a bit more playful. I received products from Clarin’s new Sunkissed Summer Collection and it was just the color boost my makeup bag needed.
Included in the collection are “sunkissed” primers and bronzers to help enhance your glow; these are perfect for Summer when you want a little extra glow to your skin (and if you want to minimize how much makeup you use). I mixed a few drops of the Mocha SOS Primer to warm up my foundation, and then applied the Bronze SOS Primer with a damp sponge as a highligher to help give a me that soft “glow from within” look. The Bronzing Compact Palette has a trio of matte tones that you can use to warm up your skin; it’s the type of bronzer that is perfect for light contouring/bronzing and looks super natural on the skin. I applied it to my forehead, cheekbones and under my chin before topping with a coral blush to help bring back a little depth to the skin.
On my eyes, I used their new 4-Color All-in-One Lining Pen; it’s small and compact but packs a punch because there are 3 shades that can be used on your eyes (black, dark purple and green) and the 4th is a lipliner. If you’re someone that wants to wear a little color on your eyes but aren’t a huge fan of eyeshadow, this is perfect for that. I covered my entire lid with the green shade, and added the darkest shade from the bronze compact to act as a transition color. I then lined the top of my eyes with the black, and the bottom with the dark purple. It’s just enough color to make my eyes pop without having to spend too much time thinking about it.
For lips, I lined and filled them in with the berry shade in the 4-Colour All-In-One Pen, and then topped with the Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil. This makes your lips feel so soft and hydrated, smells yummy, and adds a stain to your lips as if you’d just eaten fresh black berries. I was able to create a fun, Summery look that will keep me cute all season.
Have you tried anything from the Clarins Sunkissed Summer Collection?
