The Perfect Summer Time Vampy Make Up Look

Tuesday, June 7, 2016

I have not quite figured out why but I live for a dark lip!

Fall, Winter, Spring Summer...I don't care about the season! While most people are reaching for nude and flirty pink's for their lips and eyes I'm still holding on to my deep tones. 

But...this love of dark tones doesn't go without a struggle. When summer time hits I've always struggled on how to make dark vampy makeup work without looking out of season.

But I think I've finally got it. Check out what I used to achieve this vampy daytime summer look below!

All titles are clickable links to products =)

1. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick-Witches 

I honestly can't get enough of these lipsticks! They have become my go to and I'm building up quite a collection. All of the everlasting liquid lipsticks have a matte finish and long lasting wear. I will point out that some colors can be a little drying so if you already have dry lips beware. They'er 20.00 each and are constantly sold out at Sephora so when you see them grab them quick!

This shade is perfect for the vampy look and is really the MAJOR KEY that pulls everything together.

2. Urban Decay- Naked 2 Basics

Now it maybe be that I'm just turning into a boring old lady, who's too lazy to do anything exciting with her make up. Or it could just be that this palette of neutrals is everything, ill of course argue the latter =)

Fot this look I used Stark on the lid, Primal in the crease, Undone on the outer corner and a little bit of Skimp along the brow bone (although I felt like it was a little light).

If you're looking to keep your makeup routine light this summer. This will be the perfect palette for you to get, grab it at Sephora for 29.00. 

3. It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara 

The most important 24.00 you will ever spend in your entire life. Forget fake strip lashes, forget the expensive lash extensions...JUST BUY THIS! Im sure I have posted about this on here before...hell i post about it on my Instagram like every other day.

Why is that? Because its amazeballs!

The only downside that I have noticed is periodic clumping. It's really a hit a miss on how often it happens and I also rarely allow my mascara to dry before I try to slap on the next coat.

So you may not have the same periodic clumping

4.The Balm Hot Mama Blush

This blush has been with me since like the beginning of time and I just won't let it go. 

Why? Because it's the G.O.A.T

I've never met another blush so versatile, spring, summer, fall, winter, this can be worn whenever with whatever. If you ask me what the perfect blush is, ill say this every time.

5. Sephora Highlight Lowlight Face Contour Duo

Sold out online, the only way your snagging this hot number is going into your local Sephora.

I was never big on using cream to highlight and contour until I got my hands on this "magic stick" it has changed my makeup game. The creams are smooth, easy to blend and I feel like there is a nice color selection.

If you don't already have it go grab one, it will be the best 20.00 you will ever spend.

6. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter in Opal

I got this baby in a set over Christmas which I have linked above in the name (as well as all other products)

While this is clearly not an everyday wear, when you need that extra boost...this is LIT

...see what I did there?

No questions, just buy it.

7. Lancome Artliner

Let the crowd say...Amen.

This dag on thing right here has single handedly aided in helping me effectively construct a winged liner!


If you have ever wanted a precision liner, this will be your new baby.

Now all thats left is for you to hop in front of your mirror and get to beating that face!
