Natural Summer Makeup ♡

Inspiration Photo   ----->

Natalie Portman 

This look requires a peachy blush. I use a powder blush in my tutorial but another great alternative is a creme blush because it'll give your skin that dewy effect.
I used a clear mascara for both my top and bottom lashes, as you can see Natalie's eyes are almost bare, she looks bright-eyed and wide awake.

She also has a nice glow-y tan going on so I used bronzer to lightly contour. I also applied it to my forehead, dusting any excess onto my nose.

Her skin is glistening in this photo, so to give my normal/dry skin the illusion of dewy, glistening skin, like Natalie's, I applied my e.l.f shimmering whip in "Golden Peach" to make my skin reflect sunlight.

For lips, Natalie's are very natural, almost chapped, I stuck with the natural lip, even made sure to pat my lips with a bit of foundation to create a drying effect, but I changed up the look by still applying a moisturizing lip balm.

Note that this photo was only used to inspire my look, it is not meant to be exactly the same. If you have any questions feel free to leave a comment below. :)

Also, don't forget to set your makeup with a setting spray if the temperatures are hot and humid. This will prevent your makeup from melting off your face. ;)
