So on Saturday at the YSL makeup masterclass, we re-created Suzie’s pretty glowing Summer makeup. I was quite surprised by just how little foundation was required to create the look and although it looks like a lot of products the look can be achieved fairly quickly and makes the skin look really healthy perfect for summer. The perfect holiday look.
I’ve since attempted to recreate the look using mostly drugstore makeup products to give a more affordable alternative.
YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer
Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
Collection Primed and Ready Correct and Concealer
Rimmel Stay Blushed 001 Pop of Pink
Barry M Brow Kit
Bourjois Liner Feutre Felt Tip Eyeliner
Maybelline the Falsies Push Up Angel Mascara
YSL Rouge Volupte Shine
One of the main tips that I discovered in the masterclass was to use a flat foundation brush to apply most of the base products when wanting to achieve a dewy finish.
I’d say that the star product of this look is the Touche Eclat Blur Primer which helps to maximisethe skins radiance. The product is clear but has almost like glitter pigments through it so when applying it as a base for the rest of the makeup, it will help it to create that inner glow from the skin.
Next, we applied a small pump of foundation and using the same flat foundation brush gently patted that into the skin, at this stage we were told not to worry if some imperfections were still coming through because using colour correctors would fix this. I’ve opted to use the Collection Correct and Conceal mini palette. Use the green shade to conceal redness and lilac to disguise yellow tones so this is good under the eyes. Blend this in using the brush.
In keeping with the glowing look, we used a liquid blush and a cream highlighter. Apply a small dot of blush to the apples of the cheeks and using the same tapping motion of the brush blend into the skin to prevent harsh lines and the blush looking round. *not a good look*. I’ve picked the Topshop glow for highlighter because it looks amazing on cheek bones and instantly makes your skin look super fresh.
If your pale, like me, I would then recommend using some bronzer on the temples to help warm up the face. I like to use the Bourjois Maxi Delight Bronzer it helps to achieve that sunkissed look.
We then filled in our eyebrows, I like to use the Barry M Shape and Define Eyekit before lining my eyes with Bourjois Paris felt pen and applying a coating of mascara to the lashes. To round up the whole look we used the same lipstick Suzie was wearing which was YSL Rouge Volupte Shine a soft coral shade, again perfect for summer.
