Highlight, highlight, highlight
It’s all the rage. Almost every brand has come out with their own highlighter to add luminosity to the face. Highlight should be applied to the apples of the cheeks, under the brow bone, down the center of the nose, and on the cupid’s bow. However, there are several other ways to highlight and we’re not going to stop you from applying it everywhere, because who doesn’t want to look like a glowing goddess this summer? Some of our makeup artists’ favorite highlighters are by Becca, Urban Decay, and Hourglass.
They’re fun, flirty, and fresh. The options are endless; matte, glossy, sheer, satin, different undertones and shades, you can’t go wrong with coral this summer. Use a liner to define the bold look of a bright lip for a strong statement. Pair this with a neutral makeup look for the eyes and you’ll be set for a day at the pool or a night out. Our Las Vegas makeup artists have an array of coral lips they reach for including lip stains by Stila, Too Faced, and Makeup Forever.
Full Lashes and Nude Lips
This look always has an effortless feel to it. Whether you pop on a pair of your favorite false lashes or go heavy with your best mascara, full lashes are never a bad idea. Some of our favorite lashes are by House of Lashes, Timid Lashes, and Ardell, which can be purchased at any Target or Walgreens. If you struggle with applying false lashes, not to worry. There are several mascaras that will do the trick including Better than Sex by Too Faced and Voluminous by Loreal, which are our makeup artists’ favorites. Just coat the lashes to build up a full look and you can create that drama. Add a nude lip, some of our favorites are by Nyx, the options are endless. Nyx is a GetReady makeup artist favorite and can be purchased at Ulta or Target. The variety of lip colors are so broad and the formula is beautiful!
There’s nothing better than a fresh, natural looking face during the summertime. Let your natural beauty shine through and skip the powders, blushes, and bronzers. Our makeup artists in Las Vegas love using any of the Laura Mercier tinted moistures for spf and a little coverage. Let the sun do the rest, you’ll be naturally blushing in no time in that summer sun. There are several other tinted moisturizers and BB creams that will help you achieve that natural/ nude looking face. Our makeup artists also love Tarte BB creams, our favorite is the BB cream primer. It smoothes and also adds just the right amount of coverage.
