Best known for her role on HBO’s Orange is the New Black, actress Vicky Jeudy is the epitome of what Summer makeup should be – simply beautiful…introducing your ultimate summer makeup guide, which includes products from Milani Cosmetics, nvey eco, Tarte Cosmetics and Peter Thomas Roth.
The Perfect Pucker
The perfect lip look for summer is a glossy one and we like Nvey Eco Hydrating Lip Lustre Gloss – Lolita ($17, ulta.com) – a hydrating formula made with vegetable oil that leaves a high-shine effect as it protects and smooths.
Save Money. Save Time.
It’s neither necessary nor does it make sense to carry your entire makeup bag with you. Instead, use products like Peter Thomas Roth CC Eye Correcting Concealer and Milani Cosmetics Bronzer XL All Over Glow that save you time and whoah, money! CC Eye ($42, QVC & Sephora stores) is an all-in-one anti-aging eye treatment containing Amazonian Superfruit, Camu Camu (30x’s the vitamin C of an average orange). that conceals fine lines, imperfections and dark circles while it brightens and protects with SPF 30. , sunscreen, correcting concealer, and brightener.
For skin that says “Don’t hate, but appreciate,” as it glows in the sun, use Milani Cosmetics Bronzer xl all over glow ($9.99, milanicosmetics.com) – a 2-in-1 bronzer that can be used to shimmy up a body part or mattify it. This oil-free, silky-soft powder formula with it’s fresh and light fragrance is the meaning of luxe for under $10.
Melt-Proof Your Eyebrows
Before you get ocean-happy, make sure your eyebrows don’t slide off, but stay firmly in place…suggesting MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set ($17) and MAC Fluidline Brow Gel ($16, maccosmetics.com). The former is sweat-proof, smudge-free and humidity-resistant – all the things a girl needs to hear. Comes in six hues. Fluidline – in my makeup bag now as this piece is being written, is a waterproof gel in a pot that gives precise definition to brows. It fills, lengthens and shapes for subtle to dramatic looks.This, my friend is something you must have.
Take It All off
To remove the sins of the day, waterproof and all, use TARTE Cosmetics Fresh Eyes Marajuca Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover ($12, sephora.com) – pre-moistened towelettes that gently remove waterproof makeup as it nourishes and hydrates your skin while it helps fight signs of premature aging.
