Summer is the perfect time to be daring with your make up! Mixing the foxy cat eye trend with a little touch of color, make up artist Andrea Samuels mixed up magic, giving our girls a subtle upgrade to the eye of the season. GET THE LOOK >>
Apply a primer and/or a base in the shade of your skin tone.
Use a thin eyeliner brush, like MAC brush #210, and apply the first shade in the inner corner of your upper lid; extend to the middle of your eye.
To create the Ombre effect, using the same brush, mix with one drop of Inglot’s ‘Duraline’ mixing medium to help the gel eyeliner soften and blend easier. Mix lightly with the next shade you would like to use to complete your eyeliner. We used Inglot’s Gel Eyeliner in #79 (red) & #77 (black) on Mary. And for lighter eyes, we used Inglot’s Gel Eyeliner #76 (white), #83 (blue), and #77 (black) on Marta.
Finish your eyeliner with a slight flip on the edge using the brush on your upper lid to create a ‘cat’ eye effect. Keep your eyes closed and allow to dry for 20 to 30 seconds.
Apply a pink toned blush on apples of cheek bones and spread ‘Turkish Delight’ lipgloss by Nars to complete your look.

Apply lipstick as eyeshadow! Use a small, round, flat brush similar to MAC brush #228 with the lipstick of your choice to apply the color on lid. I applied an Inglot lipstick (dark brown) for the base and cleaned up the edges with a fluffy, blending brush to smooth out the smoky eyes.
Use a smudger brush and smudge the same brown lipstick on the lower lash line. Blend the color by slowly moving left to right until there is a smooth gradation from the lash line to the skin.
Andrea tip: Inglot’s Face And Body Illuminator is an all purpose cream for every part of your face. Apply bronze shade #66 in an upside down heart-shape on the face to contour and create a subtle glow from every angle.
Use Inglot’s Face And Body Illuminator as the lip color mixed with a clear or nude lipbalm to complete this look.

Pops of classic, fresh colors were seen on the runways of longtime favorites like Marni and Dior. Get inspired by mother nature and try a citrus shade on the lips! One of the most popular lip products this summer come from Top Shop; they have lip colors ranging from grapefruit pinks to vibrant oranges to ruby reds. GET THE LOOK >>
Andrea’s Tip: Prep your lips with brown sugar! Brown sugar is an organic way to buff out your lips while helping the lip color to last longer. Scrub brown sugar mixed with lip balm on lips for twenty to thirty seconds. Cleanse off excess sugar with tissue or a cleansing wipe.
Lightly line lips with a lip liner of your choice to help your lip color last longer. We used ‘Orange’ lip liner by NYX on Marta and Mary.
Glide ‘Infrared’ by Top Shop along top and bottom of lips. Finish lips with an orange tinted lipgloss.
Flush cheeks with a splash of tangerine-inspired blush, like ‘Taj Mahal’ by NARS. This blush has a small amount of shimmer and gives the right amount of a citrus glow for all skin tones.
