Quick and easy summer make up looks!



Hello everyone!

Sorry for the lack of posts! These days have been so stressful as I've started working in a Summer Camp and I had a birthday party and I have honestly been sleeping most of my free time - I'm such a granny! Now that I've come back from the beach for a relaxing day with my best friends, I decided to write a quick post on two looks I've done using my What You Waiting For Palette from Makeup Revolution!


Sorry that the quality of the pics isn't the best - they're iPhone selfies - but I did these two make up looks for different nights and occasions.

MEDITERRANEANLY

Foundation: Match Perfection (Rimmel) / Pressed Powder: Stay Matte (Rimmel) / Eye shadows: What You Waiting For Palette (Makeup Revolution) / Nails: Coralicious (Rimmel) / Mascara: Extra Wow Lash (Rimmel) / Eyeliner: Deliplus

I don't know if you're familiar with the slogan "Mediterráneamente" (Mediterraneanly) but it's so common in Summer for those who live in the Mediterranean thanks to a beer brand called Estrella Damm that always records summer adverts in the Mediterranean.
We went to a party called exactly like that and I decided to go for a very comfortable look and that was my make up.

Colours used: "You're capable" (beig matte colour, used as a base), "Scary Conversation" (golden, shimmery), "Shut my eyes" (brown, shimmery), "We Love You" (pale shimmery colour, corner of the eye)


CORAL

Foundation: Match Perfection (Rimmel) / Pressed Powder: Stay Matte (Rimmel) / Eye shadows: What You Waiting For Palette (Makeup Revolution) / Nails: Coralicious (Rimmel) / Mascara: Extra Wow Lash (Rimmel) / Eyeliner: Deliplus

I have NO idea why it looks orange but it's actually a nice coral kimono I got from H&M for 7€ - such a bargain. Anyway, I went to my best friend's birthday dinner and that was my make up look! I love it! (Yes, same necklace because... well, it's not like I have a huge collection and that necklace rocks so yes - using it for life.)

I must say I went to the MAC store they opened in Mallorca that day and I tried on Impassioned and that's a bit of IMPASSIONED plus my lipstick becuse it wasn't that intense anymore. (I'm SO gonna buy Impassioned soon! What a lovely shade!)

Colours used: "You're capable" (beig matte colour, used as a base), "Take a Chance" (pink, shimmery), "Sex Chromosome" (plum, shimmery), "Now It's Only Me" (pale pink shimmery colour, corner of the eye)

I know the pictures aren't the best but I wanted to show how simple I can actually be with my makeup and give you some ideas and inspiration!

  6. Great looks!

    I really like the Makeup Revolution palettes, but they're kind of hard to track down in the US.
