This hot girl summer has no end in sight. Megan Thee Stallion‘s Hot Girl Summer (please support her music) was the inspiration for this look.
It has been hot this summer and not just because you’re here *wink wink*. That said, I wanted to go soft glam for this look. Although not featured in this snippet, I used a light hand when applying my face makeup. The eye makeup is very soft but bold. Let’s just say it is soft enough to wear at the family cookout this summer but bold enough to keep everyone’s attention.
I primed my eyes with NYX’s Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk. Now, you do not need to use the jumbo eye pencil, but I have found it works really well in keeping my eyeshadows vibrant throughout the day. A concealer or paint pot will work just fine too! (Tip: Using a white base or primer make the colors pop!)
Then, I used my holy grail palette, BH Cosmetic’s Ultimate Matte, in the crease, outer “V”, and on the lid. If you do not have this palette, please get it! The palette has so many beautiful colors and is highly pigmented. Also, it is super affordable (only $19). However, any orange and yellow eyeshadows you have will do.
To make my eyes look larger, I used black gel eyeliner from the center to the outer part of my eye. Elf has amazing gel eyeliner that is only $3. I finished the look off with my signature wispy lashes.
Do not forget to recreate this summer eye makeup look and tag me on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook! I would love to see your take on it!
