This post is a collaboration between me and another blogger – gorgeous Eleni from Rouge ‘N Apples.

I first got to know this beautiful fellow blogger on Instagram. I loved her photos and the positive attitude, that somehow comes through the posts. I then found her blog, which is as lovely. Eleni writes a beauty blog, which has great in-depth reviews of beautiful products. I’m always drooling over the beautiful luxury products she has! She’s a Greek living in London and I love to read about her travels as well. We share the love for sea as well as makeup.

It would be cool, if you could show some love for Eleni on her blog and on her Instagram.

We came up with the idea of choosing a summer makeup look for each other and then creating it. This is my look, designed by Eleni. It was cool to see what she would pick for me and I love this bronzy look, which is very Eleni by the way.  The pink lips and cheeks are a nice contrast to this otherwise very dark smokey eye. I wasn’t sure if I went overboard with the smokey eye, but then again, that’s just typical me.

I had a bit of trouble to make the photos look summery, because this Monday turned out to be rainy and grey. But hey, throw a sun hat on and it’s like I’m at the beach, no?

If you want to see what I chose for Eleni’s makeup, go read her post about the summer look designed by yours truly. I can reveal, that I did challenge her a bit with colors!

Simple makeup with yellow liner – tutorial

It’s easy to bring some color to your makeup with small adjustments. This time I ditched the classic black liner and replaced it with bright yellow. Apart from the yellow liner this makeup is very classic – a go-to makeup, that I wear all the time.

I used products, that I got to choose from eleven*.

I’ve been obsessed with the Beauty School Dropout Freshman palette. It’s super versatile! It can be used as a highlighter, contour, bronzer and a blush. And you can do your brows with it! I’ll probably post about it later, because I’ve been super inspired by it and done a lot of crazy looks with it (snap family knows).

I’ve also found a new favorite foundation: Milani’s Conceal+Perfect! Now that I’ve used it for a couple of weeks I can say that it’s pretty awesome. I would compare it to Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Makeup (that I just posted here). It’s full-coverage with a matte finish and it’s very long lasting. The price is obviously cheaper, so it’s a great dupe for Double Wear.

Let’s get to the tutorial! For my Finnish readers: You can find a discount code to at the end of this post.

Before and after Milani’s Conceal+Perfect Foundation. I love it! I recommend using a damp beauty blender for application. The foundation has a concealer in it too, so it’s a bit thick.

  1.  Apply a thin layer all over your face (including your dark under eye circles!) and blend the edges well.
  2.  Apply a second layer of the foundation for the areas that need more coverage, such as pimples.

Here is the finished makeup base. Contour, highlight and bronzer are all done with the NYX Professional Makeup Beauty School palette. Blush is Milani’s Pink Delizioso.

Eye makeup

  1. Apply a primer and set the primer. I used a matte white and a light pink eye shadow to get a light and an even base.
  2. Start to contour your crease with a light brown shade. The placement depends on your eye shape. This is the lightest shade of the contour, so you can blend it to a larger area.
  3. Deepen the crease with a darker brown.
  4. Apply the lid colour. I used a shimmery warm brown, but added some light shimmer color on top of that to make it more glowing. I also applied some shimmer to my inner corners.
  5. Deepen the crease a bit more. Now that you have a lid color it’s easier to blend and see what you’re doing. I used a very dark brown at first and then a touch of black. Use a small brush for this.
  6. Line your eyes lightly with a black eye shadow. Apply those crease colors for your lower lash line as well.
  7. Create a winged liner of your choosing. Apply a coat of mascara and some lashes. All done!

Lipstick application gone easy:

  1. Line your lips with a transparent lip liner. If you want the lipstick to last super long, apply the liner all over your lips.
  2. Add lipstick to your bottom lip.
  3. Press your lips together to spread the color.
  4. Apply a nice layer of the lipstick all over your lips. Now that the lips already have some color, it’s easier to see the lines and apply the lipstick smoothly.
