FaceTime: Tonal Summer Look

5/20/13

Summer time is coming around and I wanted to do a few cool looks that are gonna be in and quite popular for the summer! The warm weather here was short-lived, it quickly got cold again and I can't wait for it to come back (COME BACCCCK!). 
With the help of a dear friend, I managed to shoot three looks in one Saturday afternoon and today I'm only going to show you the a tonal look. Basically, it's a look where your eyes, cheeks and lips all have the same colour, maybe a different shade, but the same colour nonetheless. Back in the day, this style was a total no-no and not something you'd see anyone wearing (atleast not anyone who knew anything about makeup). Now it's hot off the haute couture runway and splashed all over magazines and youtube beauty gurus. You apply this look with various colours that you would normally put on your cheeks and lips (orange, pink, lilac, red, coral, fuschia, etc). Since coral is a colour that looks amazing on my olive NC 30 complexion (with yellow/golden undertones) I decided to do a coral tonal look. 





Products used:
Face
Revlon Whipped Colourstay Foundation 250 Medium Beige
MUFE HD Microfinish Powder
NYX Beige Concealer
MAC Pro-longwear concealer in NC20

Cheeks
Chanel Joues Contraste Reflex 82

Eyes
Bourjois Baked Eyeshadow in 94 (light golden colour)
MAC Expensive Pink (all over lid)
Covergirl Waterproof Lash Blast Mascara (original)

Lips
MAC Betty Bright (from the Archie Girls collection)

This is a really easy look, very beginner friendly, with minimal amounts of products and its so very in for the Spring/Summer 2013 season. Something I know I'll do again with a simple outfit which will look pretty chic ;)

What looks are your favourite for the Spring/Summer? Do you like these types of looks- the one colour looks?
