You know what I love about summertime? Absolutely every single little thing. I love the heat. I love the sunshine. I love long days on the beach with a good book, my family and the scent of suntan oil. But I especially love getting dolled up and looking pretty while we travel during summer vacations – you know, so that all of our photos don’t totally embarrass me when we get home! I wanted to experiment with some natural looks for summer for our upcoming family cruise and our anniversary trip to the mountains, so I went shopping at Walmart to buy Rimmel makeup – there’s a new line that’s just $3.97 at Walmart right now!
You can check out my shopping trip at Walmart in this Google+ album, but the real fun was finding my favorite natural looks for summer once I got home and started playing with my new Rimmel makeup!
The Rimmel products I bought were two tubes of the Rimmel Stay Glossy lip gloss, one Rimmel Clean Finish Foundation, one Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder, two Rimmel ScandalEyes Eyeliners – one in taupe and one in sparkly black, one Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick and one Rimmel Glam Eyes Quad Eyeshadows. I got all of those Rimmel products at Walmart for just $31.76!
The fun was just beginning…after I got home, it was time to start playing around with my Rimmel makeup and figure out which of the popular natural looks for summer worked best for me!
I asked Angeline to play photographer so that I could concentrate on my Rimmel makeup application. As much as I love makeup and I love photography, it’s a little hard to do them both at the same time!
I started with the Rimmel Clean Finish Foundation to even out my skin tone and provide me with a bit of SPF protection. This is going to be especially important when I am on the cruises on this summer, as I’ll be out in the sun all day long! It goes on really easy with this little paddle applicator, then I just smooth it in with my fingertips. I prefer to do it this way because I can completely control the coverage.
Next I dusted on the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder for a matte finish.
I love how light it is, and it was available in all kinds of skin tones!
Then I started on my eyes. I love the Rimmel Glam Eyes Quad, and decided to go with the blues for my first natural looks for summer!
I know it’s going to make my green eyes stand out!
I used the darker blue on my lower lid and then swept a light application of the lighter blue on top and blended them together with my fingertips.
I also lined my upper and lower lashline with the Rimmel taupe eyeliner and added a bit of mascara to finish off my eyes.
Then it was time for my lips!
I applied the Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate lipstick and then a nice coat of Stay Glossy gloss to brighten my lips and give them some shine.
The end result?
It’s me, only better.
And then, all dressed up, of course!
