Summery. Fresh. Dewy. Just a couple words to describe the beauty look at our most recent shoot. Our makeup and hair extraordinaire Emily breaks down how you can ace the look after the jump.


For Cheeks & Highlighting: To get that dewy look, apply Nars Blush In Orgasm directly on the apple of the cheeks and blend out.  Place NARS in Albatros under the corners of the eyes (both outer and inner), down the bridge of the nose and your cupid’s bow (before you apply your lipstick) to get that fuller lip look.


For Eyes: Apply a neutral shimmer on the eye lid (MAC Eyeshadow in Naked Lunch), a little taupe coral on the crease (MAC Eyeshadow in Paradisco) and blend with your fingers. On the lower eye, use the same taupey coral for an opening effect. Then apply several coats of your favorite mascara. For brows (who doesn’t love full brows?), Emily is all about Maybelline Brow Powder – just make sure to fill it in evenly.


For Lips: A pared-back coral matte lip (MAC Creamsheen Lip Color in Ravishing) is the can’t-go-wrong hue for sunny days and breezy nights. Plus, it’s a color that looks great with all skin tones


For Hair: Prep your hair by spraying your favorite dry shampoo. Next, spray a little thermal spray to protect your hair from the heat and help hold the curl. Curl random pieces of hair throughout your head, and gently pull back into a low pony and let some of the front pieces flat out. Wrap a small piece of the pony around the rubber band at the base and bobby pin the hair in place to cover the band.


Voilà! Your new go-to look for summer.
