Forever 21 Beauty | Tropical

August 19, 2014

It’s nearing the end of summer, but to me everyday is another day for a brighter and bolder beauty looks. I’m usually more of a bare faced, au natural sort of gal when it comes to what I put on my face, but every once in a while I like to go for something that screams summer with a quick glance. This tropical-inspired beauty look is super easy to do. Very colorful but definitely not too much. See below to find out how to get the look all with Forever 21’s Love & Beauty collection. 

 1. Start with a bare clean face. Remember to use sunscreen or a BB cream that contains SPF. No burning is allowed over here. Cover up any skin tone unevenness with Love & Beauty’s Creamy Concealer. It offers the perfect amount of coverage while still letting your skin breathe.

2. Dab on a light layer of Pressed Powder all over to create a good base for the look. Adding some to your eyelids will also help keep the eye color you will be putting on from melting off too quickly.

3. Time for the bronzer! I like to use my fingers to apply bronzer to the apples of my cheeks, a little on my forehead and tip of the nose for a natural looking, sun kissed look. I used the Classic Bronzer Compact

4. Add a layer of shimmery Cream Eye Shadow. I used the color Gilded here. It’s a  creamy, opulent white that brightens up the eyes and gives a hint of that wet look that everyone loves in the summertime.


5. Add a bold line of turquoise eyeshadow from the Day-to-Night Eye Shadow Palette along each upper lash line.

6. Use the Bold Felt Tip Liner in black to add a subtle cat eye starting at your lash line, on top of the turquoise. This will open up your eyes even more. 


7. Swipe on the Ultra Curl Mascara on your top and bottom lashes for a lush touch. The brush of this mascara wand is curved, which helps make for an even more dramatic curl.

8. Finish off the look with a pout that takes color super seriously. I love the Ultra Pigmented Lip Color in Coral. It’s super glossy, extra punchy and nearly neon. Nothing lights up a summer night that an awesomely bright lip.

Now throw a floral romper over your bikini and hit the dance floor. That’s what I’m going to be doing 🙂
