Ok, so this is not the traditional summer beauty that comes to mind when you’re thinking hot, sun drenched days by the pool or beach…. no golden bronzy glowy shimmer here. But hey, there are umbrellas and spf 50 sunscreen (which I highly recommend for everyone) for a reason!
So here we have this lovely fair lady, Marie Hamm of the Maven Post
, an absolutely super cool blog all about fashion along with an impeccable aesthetic. She teamed up with the ladies of Tell Tale Hearts Vintage
for their latest shoot featuring some amazing, amazing jewelry, and vintage fashion of course.
For this shoot I wanted to create a unique summer beauty look, using the inspiration of a warm sunset glow, I used a shade of golden orange on the lid and a brighter flowery pink blended into her crease. The look was finished off with the lightest sweep of a shimmery, mineralized, soft pink highlighter powder on the tops of her stunning cheekbones. Voilà, we have summer on the fairest of the fair…. by the way this look would look beautiful on a dark skinned girl too, with very little alteration.
This was a sweet and inspiring little shoot with a really great theme. We did a couple of looks and ideas for beauty here… very simple and fresh was what we were going for with pink lips and a soft smoky brown eye.
The best part are the details and ideas from this faux wedding shoot….Check it out on the blog, Snippet and Ink
