Fresh Summer Look
As we are preparing for our 10-day holiday with a departure this Saturday, ah yes it is tomorrow, I find clothes some how easy to pack. 2-3 outfits for dinner in warmth climate – something sexy, silky gorgeous sandals, flip flops, a couple of items of jewelery, 1 pair of walking shoes and hiking trousers ( bought yesterday – tick ), a couple of bikinis and extra pair of swimming costume, white big beach hat but, when it comes skincare and makeup it does take a while. So many to choose from.
Not long ago, I created makeup for Radka, the young, freshly graduated girl. As she stayed in UK for few months, it was easier to arrange a time for our ‘afternoon makeup session’. We managed to do a couple of makeup looks during the day and, as Radka mentioned afterwards, she learnt few makeup tricks and took some beauty tips with her too. 1st look was very much fresh, ‘Natural Look’ and, the other ‘Rock-Chic Look’. It took only 5 extra minutes to create ‘rock chic look’ just by using a darker eye shade of one of the crayons and few extra coats of mascara. And, Voila’! ( We also did tutorial video on the day but have not been edited yet which I am hoping to do. Well, not me but, someone who can. Stay tune as it will be done! )
Radka is beautiful girl and minimalistic style suits her. She has face features to die, as you can see for yourselves on the pictures attached in this post blog and, I am sure you agree with me on that. The makeup brand I wanted to choose for her that would suit her natural beauty and yet, makeup brand/products which would be quick-n-easy to apply. NudeStix instantly popped into my mind.
NudeStix are simply collection ‘easy-to-use’ crayons collections that would cover all the bases. Contains with full of skin saving vitamins, antioxidants and moisturisers to create the skin dewy and natural. Natural Look suits any face as they believe – two sisters – Ally & Taylor. We are all born unique so why to use tons of makeup to cover it up. Enhancement with a bit of coverage and that extra a touch of colour – that’s all we need on every day. And, something easy to apply to make it enjoyable and fun! And, few NudeStix crayons have already been packed in my holiday suitcase too…
are combination of naturals nude shades consist of; sculpting pencils, bronzing pencils, concealers, blur pencil, matte+blemish pencil, clean-up pencil, moisture pencil, magnetic eye colour pencils, sheer eye colour pencils, eyebrow stylus pencil & gel, mascara, lip+cheek pencils, intense matte lip+cheek pencils and lip pens. Here are our choice of crayons for Radka’s looks!
Natural Fresh Summer Look
We started with By Terry Sheer Expert foundation, Laura Mercier Mineral Pressed Powder in Tender Rose to set it. The rest we used NudeStix to create both looks.
- Concealer pencil – Light 1 & Light 2.
- Eyes – Magnetic Eye Colours in: Angel & Lilith ( light shades ) and for smudgy eyeliner, we choose, Sheer Eye Colour: Bronze and lash lengthening Mascara. And, that’s how simple it was. It really did not take long, 10 mins tops for the whole face.
- Blusher – Lip/Cheek Pencil: Love. + Lip Pen: Charm Gloss
Rock Chic Look
Added By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra Powder for all over the face to take the shine away. For darker eyes, for Rock Chic Look, I choose these:
- Concealer Pencil – Light n.1 & Light n.2
- Eyes – Light colour crayons stayed and just added extra darker shade. Sheer Eye Colour: Smoke and adding balck around the eyes, we used Magnetic Eye Colour: Night
- Lips – Lip Pen: Charm Gloss
Radka and I – It was the moment to remember…
