your look ● makeup By Shantell Tavarez Be Simply Stunning From Fashion Week to your home, this summer’s biggest makeup styles are all about standing out by keeping your colors and accents basic E ach year, Fashion Week gives us the first glimpses at the styles and trends that will be showcased on the red carpets and runways in the upcoming sea- sons. It was evident that designers decided to let loose and have some fun in 2013, as the spring and summer makeup looks featured a lot of unique details and accents that bordered on brave and outrageous. But de- spite the sequins and glitter, there was a basic theme that stood out in the work of nearly every designer, and that theme is keeping it simple. This summer your makeup looks should be all about a clean, matte and flawless finish. One of my favorite make- up combinations is a neutral eye with a nice, bold lip, as summer makeup is all about keeping products minimal while still making a statement. BEFORE YOU GET STARTED PHOTO BY TED WEST It’s always exciting to have the summer to look forward to. Here are some important points to remember when choosing and applying your makeup looks this summer: Stains last longer than lipsticks , but the formulas can be drying. Model BRILEY HALE is currently a model for Elite Miami and Wilhelmina Denver. She can be seen online in the Pageantry & PromTime 2013 Fashion Showcase, as well as throughout this issue in ads for some of today’s top fashion designers. BEFORE 14 PAGEANTRY Try a lip balm over the stain. Try a lip scrub before applying bold lipstick. Smooth lips keep color longer. (Lush Sweet Lips Lip Scrub, $9) A dampened makeup sponge is the ideal tool for applying foun- dation so that it goes on light and sheer. Make sure to let wet foundations set before applying your setting powder. Instead of re-powdering throughout the day (which can cause caked-up messes) opt for oil blotting sheets . They soak up all the oil on your face without disturbing the makeup (Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets).
