Our very own make-up guru Mekala Viernes shows us how to beat the heat and stay glam! Perfect for a summer wedding guest look, she shows us less is more by demonstrating a highlighted, subtle make up application for staying glammed up all day through the night.
We start with our model Barbara cleansing her face with a makeup removing towelette to ensure any dirt, sweat or left over makeup is removed before the process begins as Mekala sets up her array of makeup favorites. She chose a lot of neutral tones and shimmery pieces to really accentuate the summer dewey skin look.
To begin, Mekala says she always starts with eyes first in case shadow falls or there are mistakes, it is easier to clean off before the foundation and concealer are applied rather than after.
2. Eyes – Priming the eyes is essential to ensure the shadows/liners do not crease, especially in the summer heat, so she uses the Urban Decay (UD) Primer Potion. For the first application of eyeshadow, she begins with the Meet Matt(e) Nude Palette, shade “Matte Lombardi”. This neutral shade is perfect for layering over. In the crease/transition, she layers on shade “Matt Singh”. For the outer (v) eyelid corner, she blends shades to make a darker, more defined statement, using shades “Matt Rosen” & “Matt Singh”.
She goes back to the eyes to smoke the lower lash line, using a combination of shades “Matt Rosen” and “Matt Singh” from the previous eye palette. She then adds highlighter to the inner corner of the eyes, using shade “dust”.
To complete the look, Barbara chooses a Sophie & Trey favorite, The Lux Life Classic Dress Aqua $34.99. This dress is not only a bright, summer must-have, but it hits on the lightweight satin trend and has an always flattering halter neckline.

Things are heating up and while we ravish our Acai Bowls and Froze favorites, staying active this summer is at the top of our list. So why not stay fit in style?!
Currently crushing on these vibrant cobalt hues, we switch up our activewear style as much as we switch up our workout routines. A go-to running short that we can’t live without is the Kick Back Active Pants $18.99. Pairing these lined, drawstring shorts with a basic tee with some feminine ruffle detail, like the One Love Ruffle Top White $14.99 is perfect for running the trail to running errands.
To transition your workout wear from season to season, a lightweight active jacket is the perfect solution. The Straight Up Hoodie Grey $29.99 is a fitted heather grey active top with hoodie detail and mesh cutouts. Complete with finger cutouts, this active piece is an instant favorite all year long.
