Summer is here and I am ready to break out the shimmer! During the summer season I prefer soft, lightweight makeup looks that are quick to create. This season, eye shimmers are on trend so I wanted to incorporate them into a shimmer eye makeup look. This look is perfect for vacation, brunch, or any fun summer day!

For this look, I begin with a prepped face with moisturizer and Supergoop! Glow Screen SPF 40. I apply a dab of concealer under the eyes and spot conceal on my face where needed. I seal with my trusty Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Face Powder SPF 16.
Creamy Shimmer Eye Makeup
These are anything but your typical cream eyeshadows! Along with an ultra-creamy texture, the Supergoop! Shimmershade SPF 30 is the first eyeshadow to feature SPF 30. The eyeshadows contain a hybrid mineral and clean chemical sunscreens to keep eyes protected from harmful UV rays.
For my shimmer eye makeup look, I first applied the pink-toned shade ‘Daydream’ to my lid and blending up into my crease. These eyeshadows are super soft and blend really well. They can be applied with a synthetic brush or simply with your finger.
Next, I blended the bronze-brown shade ‘Sunset‘ into my crease and outter v. I also applied this to my upper and lower lash line as an eyeliner… so pretty! With my finger, I dabbed the soft gold shade ‘Golden Hour‘ onto the center of my lids to add dimension. For highlight, I applied the pearly champagne shade ‘First Light‘ to inner corners and brow bone. Both ‘Golden Hour’ and ‘First Light’ would work as highlighter on cheeks as well!
I love how pretty and pearlescent these shades are– each one is just gorgeous. They apply nicely, blend easily and stay put throughout the entire day. When I took these photos, I had been wearing the eyeshadows the whole day– no touch-up needed!
All four shades are very wearable, super pretty and work across different skin tones. Using my finger to apply provided the most pigmented application, but a fluffy brush can be used for a softer, more blended look. You can bet I’ll be wearing these all summer long!
Perfected Lashes and Brows
My eyes are definitely not complete without brows and lashes done! For brows, I used the Avon fmg Cathycat High Arch Precision Brow Pencil to pencil in sparse areas. I then used the spoolie side to comb the color through for natural-looking brows.
This is a cream-to-powder brow pencil so it glides on smoothly for natural-looking strokes. I really like how natural the color looks and how long-wearing the formula is!
I then applied the Avon fmg Cathycat Play All Day Mascara to lashes. This water-resistant and budge-proof formula instantly gave my lashes some much needed volume and length. I like how soft and natural it left my lashes– it’s definitely not a full dramatic lash mascara, but it is great for a polished look on hot summer days.
To finish the look, I used a peach-colored blush– Glossier Cloud Paint in ‘Beam’, and a dab of lip gloss. All set! What do you think? Will you try this eye makeup look this summer?
