YOUR LOOK makeup By Yahaira Rosario Find Your Passion for PINK Skin tones can be kept basic this summer by simply sticking to a familiar rosey foundation ummer time is the season for beaches, pools and tan- ning. This summer is all about looking bronzed and using shimmer. Bronzers and countless shades of pink will be your best friends for this season, whether it’s blush, eye shadows or even lip color. Pinks are great for all skin tones and can help enhance any natural or dramatic look. I decided to use this makeup look on our model Madison to en- hance the natural glow in her skin. I used a lot of shimmery pinks in all aspects of this look. This style is perfect for summer since it is so easy to achieve without having to use an excessive amount of products. Not only will you feel and look refreshed with this tech- nique, but you also learn tips on how to have your makeup last throughout those hot summer days. S PRIMETIME A great tip before applying any foundation is wearing a primer on your face. Using a tinted moisturizer or a light coverage foun- dation is a great way to let your natural skin show through without wearing heavy makeup. You can cover any blemishes with concealer. Another fantastic tip is using a lip stain for both your lips and cheeks.

Then, I added a light layer of primer to help her makeup last. I used a tinted moisturizer and covered any blem- ishes with concealer to give the appearance of flawless skin and set all her face makeup with a light dust of powder. Secondly, I dabbed some eye primer all over her eyelids and blended it into her skin. You won’t regret the few seconds it takes
