your look ● makeup
By Shantell Tavarez
Stunning From Fashion Week to your
home, this summer’s biggest
makeup styles are all about
standing out by keeping your
colors and accents basic
E ach year, Fashion Week gives us the ﬁrst glimpses
at the styles and trends that will be showcased on
the red carpets and runways in the upcoming sea-
sons. It was evident that designers decided to let
loose and have some fun in 2013, as the spring
and summer makeup looks featured a lot of unique details
and accents that bordered on brave and outrageous. But de-
spite the sequins and glitter, there was a basic theme that
stood out in the work of nearly every designer, and that
theme is keeping it simple.
This summer your makeup looks should be all about a
clean, matte and ﬂawless ﬁnish. One of my favorite make-
up combinations is a neutral eye with a nice, bold lip, as
summer makeup is all about keeping products minimal
while still making a statement.

It’s always exciting to have the summer to look forward
to. Here are some important points to remember when
choosing and applying your makeup looks this summer:
Stains last longer than lipsticks , but the formulas can be drying.
Model BRILEY HALE is currently a model
for Elite Miami and Wilhelmina Denver. She
can be seen online in the Pageantry &
PromTime 2013 Fashion Showcase, as well
as throughout this issue in ads for some of
today’s top fashion designers.
PAGEANTRY Try a lip balm over the stain.
Try a lip scrub before applying bold lipstick. Smooth lips keep
color longer. (Lush Sweet Lips Lip Scrub, $9)
A dampened makeup sponge is the ideal tool for applying foun-
dation so that it goes on light and sheer. Make sure to let wet
foundations set before applying your setting powder.
Instead of re-powdering throughout the day (which can cause
caked-up messes) opt for oil blotting sheets . They soak up all the
oil on your face without disturbing the makeup (Clean & Clear
Oil Absorbing Sheets).
