Make Up Monday - Summer Nights Make Up look

Happy Make Up Monday! 

This week I have created a Summer Night Make Up look, It's based around the smoky eye but by using brighter colours it's perfect for those balmy summer nights (that is if we ever get any!!).

Most of the look I have created today has been done using my NARS cool palette, which for those of you who follow this blog will know I found it last week and rekindled my love for it! 

The completed look!

For the eyes I used Lemon Aid from Benefit as my primer, then I applied a mix of a light turquoise (cleo duo), poppy blue (gigi) and a vivid purple (lulu) which were all from NARS, to give a smoky effect, I added black liner to the outer third of my water line and some black mascara (I'm currently using Falsies from maybelline).

I used a coral blush (orgasm) and a highlighting cream (copacobana) both from NARS on my cheeks for a lighter summery look.

And to finish off the look I applied a cream gloss (baby doll) from NARS to give a barely there glossy pink finish.

For a full tutorial take a look at my Make Up Monday Video!

I hope you like this look, I think it will be great for the summer and is the perfect way to experiment with different colours.

Stay Gorgeous
