Makeup Tutorial - Summer Time Blue and Pink

Lighten up! It's summer time. 

You are already bringing on the neons and breaking out the sandals. Why not ditch your earthy makeup too, and attempt light and fun colors like blue shadow and pink lips?

Think -- Malibu Barbie rollerblading by the beach. Doesn't that sound like a refreshing idea to wear?

Summer Time Blue and Pink Makeup Tutorial

Step 1

Hide blemishes and under eye circles with a concealer.

Just dot on concealer and even out with a brush.

Step 2

Create a clear complexion with foundation.

A round foundation brush doesn't leave your face streaky.

Here's a tip: your skin might get darker in the summer. Blending a light and dark foundation generates a more fitting color.

Step 3

Using a shadow brush, apply a light blue color all over lid and crease.

Using L'Oreal Eyeshadow Single in "Reflecting Pool."

Step 4

Rim top and bottom with a dark eyeliner.

Using Almay Intense I-Color in "Midnight Black."

Step 5

Using a makeup sponge, blend top liner with a dark powder shadow.

Using CoverGirl Eye Enhancer in "Shimmering Onyx."

Step 6

Apply highlighter to the brow bone with a highlighter brush.

Using CoverGirl Eye Enhancer in "Pink Chiffon."

What I used:

Step 7

Curl lashes and apply mascara.


Step 8

Apply a light-colored blush to the apples of your cheeks.

A light blush on the cheeks gives you a healthy glow.


Step 9

Add pink lipstick and gloss.

Sheer gloss gives lips a sexy splash of pearliness.


And you are done!

Fun, flirty summer time blue and pink.
