Red hot summer makeup tutorial

Bella Hadid looks absolutely gorgeous on the cover of the newest Porter! I instantly fell in love with her bright pink blush; on an otherwise bare face, this statement-making flush gives her that fresh-from-vacation glow we are all after this time of year.

While I am all for natural beauty looks, this weekend I felt super inspired to recreate a more glam version of this one in particular. With a little more oomph, I transformed this casual beach-y look into something more suitable for a night out. And, I am so happy with how it came out!

The warm brown, red, copper and golden tones give off sultry, summer vibes. But, the hues I used are super earthy, so the look is neutral–not overwhelming.

  • First Aid Beauty Oil-Free Mattifying Gel Moisturizer, $30
  • Bali Body BB Cream in Natural, $29.95
  • Glossier Stretch Concealer in Medium, $18

Step 1: Prime the face with FAB’s Oil-Free Mattifying Gel Moisturizer and allow it to dry before moving onto step 2.

Step 2: Apply an even coat of BB Cream all over the face.

Step 3: Use Stretch Concealer to cover an redness, blemishes and under-eye circles.

Step 4: Create a little definition by applying Cloud Paint in Dusk to the hollows of the cheeks. For a more dramatic look build up the pigment with a second coat.

Step 5: Apply GALifornia blush to the cheekbones, sweeping the brush upwards.

Step 6: Prime eyelids with Primer Potion, and allow to dry before moving onto step 7.

Step 7: With a standard eyeshadow brush, apply two thin layers of Gimme Gorgeous (or any similar shade) onto the entire eyelid. From the outer corner of the eye, work this pigment downwards, onto the lower lash line.

Step 8: Use a blending brush to darken the crease of the eye with Saddle (or any similar shade) for a smoky effect. Then, dust the pigment leftover on the brush onto the lower lash line.

Step 9: Using the same blending brush, dust Wattles (or any similar shade) onto the inner eyelid. Then, blend outwards, into the crease.

Step 10: After combing and curling lashes, apply 2 coats of Miss Manga to the upper lashes and 1 coat to the lower lashes.

Step 11: With Haloscope, highlight the brow bones, orbital eye bones and the cupid’s bow.

Step 12: Apply Boy Brow to each eyebrow beginning in the center and working towards the inner and outer sprouts.

Step 13: Finish with 1-2 coats of Lip Gloss.
