It’s that time of year! Well at least here in the southern part of the states it is. It is warm outside and I gotta tell you I have a love/hate relationship with summer. On the one hand, I get to wear shorts and sandals, the boys can play outside and the nights are pleasant. On the other hand it’s hot. I absolutely hate feeling hot and sticky. It puts me in a bad mood.

Summer makeup looks are fun though. I like to try to incorporate bright, lush colors in my eye shadow with vibrant pink and peach blush. It’s the season to look youthful and glowy. Your skin gets some sun and it just pulls it all together. Here are a few makeup looks I came up with.

I used my Jaclyn Hill by Morphe palette for this look. It was super simple to do and I just love how it turned out. I used the shades M.E.F.O and Pooter in my crease. On the lid I used Diva and Queen. And on the outer corner I mixed Buns and Chip. I highlighted my inner corner and brow bone with Beam and on the lower lash line I mixed Enchanted, M.E.F.O. and Pooter. I highlighted my cheeks with the Milani Strobelight Instant Glow Powder in the shade Afterglow and on the lips I used Sinful Cinnamon by Buxom with Buttercup cream lipstick by Gerard Cosmetics over top.


For my second look I went with a more colorful look.

I used my Urban Decay Born to Run palette. I used the shades Weekender and Riff in my crease with a fluffy blending brush. I used the shade Radio all over the lid and a mix of Riff, Baja and Still Shot on the lower lash line.


I highlighted my brow bone and cheeks with she shade Pearl in the Milani Stellar Lights Rose Glow highlighting palette. I was beaming y’all. And for the lip I used the lipstick Rodeo Drive by Gerard Cosmetics topped with the gloss Party Starter by Bare Minerals.


For my final look I wanted to continue the colorful theme.

I used my Jaclyn Hill palette again for this look. I used the shades Silk Cream and Pukey in the crease. Queen in the inner corner and Pool Party and Jada on the lid. With Beam on the brow bone and inner corner highlight. I used Jada on the lower lash line to finish off the eye look. I use Milani lipstick in the color Matte Kiss and topped it with Party Starter lip gloss by Bare Minerals. I used the same Milani highlight in Pearl.

I had so much fun with these looks and I hope you enjoyed them as well! If you recreate any of these post a photo! I’d love to see them.

  2. All three looks are absolutely stunning, Cadie!! The second one is my favorite though– it is so bold. 😍 Also, UD has my fave eyeshadow formula. I need to have that palette!
