Dramatic Summer Look

Celebrate your summer look and get ready for those after-beach parties with a summery smoky eye.

Summer is all about relaxing fun and warm days in the sun. This season we love easy makeup and hairstyles that require minimal effort by day and night. Learn how to get a more dramatic sun kissed look in just a couple of minutes with a simply stunning soft and greyish smoky eye!



Start by preparing with a primer for a long-lasting effect. Dab the primer over the eyelids and below your eyes. Correct uneven tones and dark circles with a concealer: use a fine brush or dab with your finger just below the eye area. Then apply a grey eye shadow from lashes to crease. Dab the shadow with a brush or your fingertip over the lower lash line, then gently smudge at crease and lower lashes. Add some highlighter in the inner corner of the eye. Use a black or dark grey eye pencil at the top and bottom lash lines and finish off with black mascara.




Go for a dewy and bronzed skin with lots of luster. After cleansing, prepare your skin with a moisturiser then add an illuminating foundation that gives you a healthy glow. If you want less coverage, a BB cream will do the trick. Brush strokes of golden blush over your cheek bones to maximize the summery and clean style.



Keep that beachy feel and swipe your hair in a bandana or silk scarf – there's no need for washing after you’ve hit the waves.
