How to get the best subtle summer makeup look

By: Julia McEwen

The I woke up like this skin on model Leanne Proctor can be achieved by anyone—you just need iridescence and a little know-how.





Firstly, Stroh suggests applying a moisturizing primer, then thinly layering on a lightweight foundation. For instantly brighter, dewier skin, choose a creamy highlighter in pale champagne, rose gold or pink. Use your fingertip to dab the highlighter on the cheekbones, the inner corners of the eyes, the top of the lips and the bridge of the nose, she says.

On the eyes, Stroh applied brown eyeshadow along the lash line and up to the crease, then blended. A pearly taupe was layered on top, with a pop of highlighter in the inner corners. Get the opaque ice pop-stained lips using lipstick, lip balm, a finger and a piece of paper. Its not your typical statement lip. Press the lipstick into your lips, blot them, then apply lip balm and blot again. Repeat the process three or four times to give your colour longevity.
