The Beauty Closet's Top Makeup Pick for Summer:
Look Pro! Non-Touring Glamour Duo
Think you need to spend tons of cash in order to get a flawless makeup look with no stress? Think again! Hard Candy proves us wrong with this fabulously affordable product with an all-in-one highlighting shimmer stick + cream brightener :) If you haven't tried out the latest "non-touring" trend, it's definitely one to try! Be sure to check out my guide on non-touring, below! This awesome product allows for a mess-free, easy application that's foolproof and makes this trend application a cinch. Simply apply the creamy matte radiance cream brightener to your middle temple, upper eyelids, underneath the eyes, sides of the lower jaw line and middle chin. As the 2nd step advises per the provided instructions, the shimmer stick is applied to the outside upper lids/brow bone and outer cheeks.
What I really love about this non-tour stick is its foolproof nature! The makeup applies easily and blends like a dream, while nicely melting right on top of the skin to leave it looking flawless and with an airbrush-like finish. I have super fair skin, but with the recent move and increased sun exposure due to the summer.... I was a bit nervous the shade would not work for me but it appears to be a universally flattering shade that easily matched my skin tone [shade #1292] and didn't look obvious or unnatural. All-in-all, I've been very impressed with the quality of the product for the price and I'm actually very glad I gave this product a chance. I'm a pretty big fan of Hard Candy products and this one definitely fit that bill- it's affordable, anyone can use it, and it makes one of the latest beauty trends an cinch to master!
Non-Touring Makeup Trend!
Yup...I said correctly...non-touring! The latest makeup trend is on the rise and its a cinch to master once you understand what the approach actually entails! Be sure to start with applying a matte cream brightener and blend well. Be sure to use an exfoliating facial wash before applying makeup and pat the face dry with a clean towel. Apply a moisturizer [go a natural oil moisturizer, such as sweet almond oil or maracuja oil] and then follow with a primer and allow to dry.
Once you've applied the creamier brightener [use the chart pictured above! ^] and blended well, take the shimmery highlighter [cream or powder] and apply to the outer cheeks and up brow bone [above and right below the brows] to complete the look. Then apply the remainder of your makeup routine as you normally do. The end results will leave your makeup looking airbrushed, smooth, and lines will be softened. This look is perfect for the summer and for day looks and looks fabulous on any skin tone or type :) Non-touring also happens to be fairly easy to achieve and doesn't require artistry skills or for you to be a professional makeup artist in order to accomplish this pretty and natural beauty trend.
