5 Minute Makeup For An Aperitif on the Beach
By Michela Marra
Dear Pretty Birds,
there’s nothing better than hanging out on the beach after 7pm and enjoying an aperitif on the seashore. Wear a light dress, do your hair, choose the right makeup and… let the evening begin! If you’re unsure about your makeup options, here are our suggestions for some of the best items to slip into your summer beauty case: hydrating lipsticks in summer colours, bronzers that flatter your skin tone, creams that add warmth and colour to your complexion instead of your usual foundation, and finally, a touch of colour on your eyes (sometimes all you need is a simple black line across your upper eyelid). Here’s how to apply flawless makeup in just five minutes.
BB Cream Dream Bronze in Light/Medium by Maybelline NY evens out skin tone, covers imperfections and restores the face.
Collistar Transparency Sensual Oil Body and Face Illuminator acts as the perfect blush to define cheekbones while giving the face a radiant, attractive aspect. It also works perfectly as an eyeshadow, adding light and intensity to your gaze.
Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Illuminating Powder Gelee is a delicate, illuminating powder that creates a glowing effect.
Makeupstudio Earth Colour Tanner by Diego Dalla Palma veils the skin with a fine, invisible film, creating a soft focus effect which illuminates the skin tone and reduces the appearance of facial imperfections.
Lip gloss Eclat Minute Embellisseur Levrès in 05 Red by Clarins is a cream lip conditioner which blends into lips, creating a super shiny effect.
Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick in Sweet Pea releases high definition colour with just one stroke.
Pressed eyeshadow compact in 12 Ghiaccio (Ice) by Diego Dalla Palma has a silky, smooth texture and goes on evenly. It is easy to apply and blend.
Full Lash Volume Mascara by Shiseido is a high-precision mascara. It increases lash volume and thickens lashes to create a fan-like effect.
Giorgio Armani Beauty Eyes To Kill Eye Tint in Senso is a liquid eyeshadow with a natural, translucent finish. This product combines the pureness of a powder with the hold of an eyeshadow ink and the sensory characteristics of cream shadow.
Wash & Dry Technakhol Liner in Coin Operated by Mac Cosmetics completes your eye makeup (or it can also be used on its own): simply draw a black line across your upper or lower eyelid to add depth to your gaze.
