Dramatic “End of Summer” Makeup

Yesterday I wanted to do something that said “I may or may not be (but definitely am) a little excited for cooler seasons but, I’m also still enjoying what’s left of the Summer time”.
Jah feel?
I used cool blues and cool browns on the eyes but still brought back the brightness and warmth with a rosy pink blush and mauve colored lips.
I was super heavy-handed. 
I’m not sorry for it.

As of late, I haven’t been contouring my face.
Instead, I’ve kind of been doing this combination of contouring and strobing mixed together. 
In order to achieve the type of look I’ve been going for this summer, I’ve been mixing the middle contour shade from the Kat Von D Shade + Light Palette with my blushes, and then applying the mixture all over my cheeks (dramatically) like I would apply blush.
It gives my face structure and color at the same time, without looking too structured like a contour, or too colorful, like a clown from the 80’s.

The three blushes I’ve been using for this, are:
Nyx Cosmetics Powder Blush in Dusty Rose
Mac Cosmetics Blush in Dolly Mix
and another Nyx Powder Blush that I don’t know the name of, and I don’t have it with me. I’m a terrible blogger, I’m sorry. Nyx Powder Blushes are GREAT though. 

It’s Rose Garden. I Googled it immediately after I finished typing the last sentence.

  1. I love the blue! OH IT GORGEOUS! I’m a total lash addict and I love HOL Iconic. My only issue is the band is kind of thick…. how do you deal with that just get a good thick line of black above it to make sure it doesn’t show? That’s the one challenge I’ve have with HOL lashes, those bands.

    1. I tagged you in an update they posted on Insta about their new and improved lash band! But yes, I am super generous with my liner but I also make sure and clean the lashes with a q-tip and alcohol before every use so that the glue and shadow residue from the last wear is 100% gone!

    1. Thank you so much! Although I do absolutely love blue, I don’t reach for it super often either. It’s just one of those things I get an itch for sometimes 😊
