LoL, I've just noticed I have not made any specific "summer looks" so far. In all honesty, in this island summer is not so different from the rest of the seasons. Though I have to say, it's been raining non-stop for more than a week. OMG, I'll promise I will not complain about the heat and humidity...much...for a couple of weeks XD. But this rain has to stop!
Anyway, the other day I saw THIS VIDEO TUTORIAL by Pixiwoo in YouTube and I wanted to do my version of it. Just a few changes, like different e/s base -- which caused Trax e/s looking different on my eyelids, adding a highlighter in my tear duct area and lip color. I already had my everyday makeup on b4 doing this eye makeup look and didn't felt like changing the color of the cheeks and lips.
Oh, another thing: the golden line you see as an eyeliner is just Trax on top of my black pencil eyeliner. That base took all the gold in Trax!
What I like about this look is that I think Trax and Beauty Marked are excellent MAC shades and they don't get enough love or recognition from the makeup loving community.
About my face makeup, today I applied my Revlon CS with my hands --not only fingers but with my palms too-- and set it with MAC Studio Fix Powder Foundation with a makeup puff. I just felt I needed the extra coverage as I have a few blemishes on my face (Boo!). The finish was very soft and my facial skin texture looked quite good. This is def. a makeup technique I really like.
