Summer fresh makeup in minutes!

    Today's make-up is not step-by-step as I was in a bit of a hurry to leave. But I think you will like it anyway because it is simple and especially relevant in the nice spring weather when you want to feel summery even though you are still a bit wintery;)

    I have put all the focus on the base and the keywords are bronzer, freckles, blush, luster and a lovely coral color on the lips. Mums!

    Here you see before and after:

    I slept in braids so the hair was fixed in a few seconds - out with the braids, in with dry shampoo and headbanga 4 times. Clear!

    Face primer for your skin type. I have used Paese Makeup Base (Matte)
    Liquid gel foundation which gives a nice glow without shimmering, Pixi H2O Skintint (2. Nude)
    (I skipped concealer for having a good skin period right now!)
    Freckles with matte eye shadow, Paese Kashmir Eyeshadow (shade 609)
    Exhausting powders if you, like me, have oily skin, otherwise you can skip it, Paese Bamboo Silk Powder
    Luminous highlighter, Pixi Glow-Y-Powder (Santorini Sunset)
    RougeBlush (35)
    Contour palette with three shades: Sun pillows thin all over the face and on the décolleté to fake a tan, light shade under the eyes for more alert gaze and cooler dark contouring shadow in the deep parts of the face, Contouring Palette (Shade 01 which is a little warmer than 02)
    Fixing mistPixi Makeup Fixing Mist

    Eye contouring - Place the sun powder along the crease line and the luminous highlighter in the corner of the eye, under the brow and in the middle of the eyelid
    Brynpenna - glo Micro Brow Pencil (Light brown)
    Mascara - Magnetic lash mascara

    Lipstick - glo Cream Glaze Crayon (Mimosa)

    Tip: I think it is easiest to dab on the freckles immediately after the foundation as the skin is still a little moisturized. It is more difficult to get it to stick when the skin is powdered. Then you can improve the freckles with more shade if needed after applying the rest of the base.

    This look is quick because all products can be applied very quickly as the make-up does not require precision. The sun powder and blush merge with each other, you make the eyes at the same time as the base (except for the mascara), the freckles dab on spontaneously and it becomes almost nicer the faster and more sloppy you dab around with the brush and lipstick I have also just pulled on without fine grinding with brush in the edges :)

    It can be done with fewer products as well. If you have a good complexion (which is neither particularly oily or dry) then you can actually skip both face primer, powder and fixing mist, and then you may not feel that you need a lustrous highlighter either because if you skip powder on top of the foundation so the skin has a nice glow automatically by just the gel foundation.

    So really you can get away with only gel foundation, freckles, blush and contouring palette as a base :) And then only eyebrows, mascara and lips on it!
