Summer Color - Modern Tribal

For an editorial look that gets attention, try an unexpected pop of color! Start with a burnished summer shimmer by coloring lids, cheeks and skin with a coppery, bronzed glow. Bright purple shadow paired alongside an icy blue lip equals painted contrast, you’ll look like a modern tribal temptress who rules the city streets!

Begin by creating a base on the lid with Crème Gel Liner in Flamenco, the creamy texture is highly blendable, making it ideal to double as a long wearing eye shadow. Dip the #18 Small Eyeshadow Brush into the pot and apply, extending out way past the corner edge.

Match the edge and drag along the bottom lashline, blending with the #18 Brush so that it has a slight blur. Proceed quickly before the gel dries so that it doesn’t clump up on you!

Swipe just the purple/blue section of Pearl X Eyeshadow in Luna Beach on to a #33 Flat Eyeshadow Brush, and pat this onto the middle of the lid and all across the lower lash line, using the flat edge. Sophisticated, multi-textured eye shadows have a palette of contrasting shades that effortlessly blend and shift as you apply. These shadows can be used for shading, highlighting, or lining.

Wet your #18 Small Eyeshadow Brush, and dip into Wet Diamond Eyeshadow in Genie Pop, a glittering copper penny color.  Applied dry, it spreads a sheer veil of dazzling, diamond glitter over eyelids. Used wet, it goes on like a glistening brilliant cream that lasts for hours without creasing. Place this color around the outer crease and extend out, and down below the lower lash line.

Line your upper and lower lash line with the Duo Eye Pencil in Jet Black/Black Brown, and finish up by adding liner within the waterline. Two shades in one generously sized pencil offer velvety color that glides across delicate eyes.

Apply Water Canvas Primer and Water Canvas Foundation to the face for complexion perfection that looks dewy and fresh, ideal for summer skin! Use the Water Canvas sponge to blend evenly, moving down gradually to the jawline.

Bronze the cheeks heavily with La Riviera Sun Matte Bronzer in Sun Drenched and a #27 Deluxe Blush Brush. Multi-layered shades of warming sun tones are pressed into unique patterns to deliver a healthy, soft matte look of a natural tan.

Contour just the hollow of the cheeks using the #3 color from our Pearl To Matte Eyeshadow Palette in Untitled. Drag the Deluxe Blush Brush along this area, and blend.

Add dramatic highlights (with the #27 Brush again) to the cheeks, above the brows, nose and chin using La Bella Luce Highlighter in Flora. Multi-tonal, silky powders provide a signature glow for any skin tone. Dust all over for an ambient glow or highlight cheeks, temples and décolleté.

For this look you’ll be building a custom lip color! Apply Velvet Riche Lipstick in Pure Demure as a base. It is very light and neutral, so it will grab ahold to any color that you layer on top of it.

Paint the lips by dabbing the tip of the #36 Travel Lip Brush into the pale blue shimmer section of our Pearl X Eyeshadow in Code 6 Pink. Apply to the lips by filling in gradually, softly, so as not to overly disturb the base you’ve just created. Continue working until the entire surface is coated with blue powder.
