To create a gorgeous, natural makeup look for summer like Karen Elson's, start with the Satin Matte Foundation that matches your skin tone. If you haven’t found your match yet, you might want to use our Foundation Selector. To keep your look dewy and light, try mixing your foundation with some of your moisturizer in the palm of your hand and apply as you would a liquid foundation. If you prefer to use your foundation dry, sweep a little Lumina Luminous Shimmer Powder across your cheekbones and forehead.
For a natural flush, Satin Matte Blush in Pink on the apples of the cheeks works for almost every skin tone. Then using the #37 Eye Blending Brush, sweep a little Pearluster Eyeshadow in Champagne on your lids. Using the #33 Angle Liner Brush, line eyes with Pewter Satin Matte Eyeliner. Dampen your brush for a defined look, and then smudge a bit of dry powder around the edges of the liner.
To complete the look, groom your brows, apply a coat or two of black mascara, and sweep Sweet Pea Nourishing Lipbalm on to your lips. Voila, you are ready for a day at the beach or a night on the red carpet!
