SUGAR SHADES OF SUMMER

TUTORIAL + PHOTOGRAPHY BY AMY NADINE, GRAPHIC DESIGN BY EUNICE CHUN

At the beginning of this Summer we had loads of fun with matte pastels (revisit the tutorial here)! But now that the dog days of Summer are here, with humidity and heat scoring off the charts, matte shadows and glistening skin work against each other and don’t do you any favors. Luckily the solution is simple! Switch over to sugar shades! These are shimmery frosted shades of pink, white, taupe and silver and will get you through the final Summer months. There are all kinds of variations on how to apply them; you can do a single wash of color, or try this Pink Cut Crease paired with a Cat Eye! It’s also nice because you can’t really see the cut crease when the eyes are open but when you blink or look down, it’s a gorgeous sweet surprise! Here’s how:¬†

TOOLS:

STEPS:

  1. Apply the shimmery white shadow all over the lid.
  2. Trace the frosted pink shadow along the crease.
  3. Softly smoke out the line slightly by sweeping the blending brush back and forth over it.
  4. Draw a cat eye along the lashline, winging it out and up at the outer corner.
  5. Finish with a couple coats of mascara.

Here are our most favorite sugar shades!

What are yours?
