SUMMER SERIES: Mandarin Lips

Seeing as last my tutorial (which you can see here) was really focused on those warm summery shades on the lids, this time I thought I would go a bold lip in center stage.
Orange is a colour which distinctly reminds me of summer with its’ brightness and warmth. So this was a great chance to really play with a colour I am not too use to. Honestly though, this eyelook will go with any lip/blush combination, so if you are in winter go a deep red lip and a berry blush!

Feel free to tone it down or turn up the make-up look and if you recreate it, tag me on instagram @shaydoesthething or tweet me @beauty_dork

After moisturizing, apply your base as you usually would. To do this I used Bourgois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation and Lumi Magique Primer, Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Fair and Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade in Dark Brown. I then set the liquids with the Australis AC On Tour Kit using the yellow shade for under the eyes and the pink shade for all over the face.

I’m going for a strong contour using Australis (really? More Australis?) AC On Tour Kit and like in my previous Summer Series tutorial, blending that out well with Stila’s Give Me Sun Bronzer in Light. My review for the AC On Tour Kit can be found here – so if you are interested in my thoughts on it go visit me over there. 

I’m blending this light BYS orange blush onto my cheeks very, very carefully because I am not emotionally ready to be an Oompa Loompa. Finally go crazy with some highlight, which I used (surprise) the AC On Tour Kit highlighting shade. Set all this caked product down with a setting spray and take a deep breath because the boring part is nearly over.

Now the lips are the star of the show, so the eyes should be extremely neutral. For this I am using the Lorac Pro Palette. Jeez I adore this palette.
I’m firstly lightly applying the Lorac primer. I then sweep a mixture of cream and white over the entire eye up to the brow bone.
For a transition colour, apply Taupe, a lovely warm brown that is perfect for a crease colour. Apply this colour also to the outer v.
If you want to deepen this look up, apply the shade sable to the outer v and blend in to the taupe and slightly into the crease. I then used the Stila Give Me Sun Bronzer to really warm the eyes up. Add Mary Lou-manizer to the inner corner to give the eye some sparkle.
Using liquid eyeliner, in which I used Maybelline Master Precise (believe the hype), draw a nice thin wing. To finish the eye, apply flirty lashes if that is your thing and mascara to the top lashes only to really lift the eye.

Now the star of the show is super easy. Lastly, apply Rimmel Moisture Renew in In Love with Ginger to the lips and bam! You’re done! If you need to, crisp up that edge by applying concealer around your lip line. This will not only sharpen that line, but really help clean up any little mistakes.

And that is the finished look. What do you think, and where would you wear this? What do you like to wear for summer? Comment below.
