Lipstick during the summer can be a tricky affair. After all, the majority of us don't want to look like we're wearing makeup while out in the sun. The result can often be clownish, and nothing's worse than too-bold lipstick that ends up melted and faded in the summer heat.
So, who better to serve up some major summer beauty inspo than our contributing celebrity editor, Lucy Hale? While celebrating her birthday last Sunday at the Children Mending Hearts 7th Annual Empathy Rocks Fundraiser, the stunning actress/songstress nailed a beachy summer makeup look that we plan to copy ASAP: a vibrant (yet understated) coral lip, complimented by a bright and glowing complexion. Celebrity makeup artist Kelsey Deenihan takes us through the process.
"To create a light touch of coverage, I began by buffing a light veil of Cle De Peau Radiant Fluid Foundation ($125) on Lucy's skin," Deenihan says. "Then, I set the foundation with Chanel's Natural Finish Loose Powder ($52)." For a touch of sun-kissed color, Deenihan swept mark.'s Buenos Aires Caliente Glow Blush + Bronzer Compact ($16) across the actress's cheeks. Super convenient, the compact's rosy-hued blush can be applied to the cheek's apples, while the bronzer can be used to contour and define cheekbones. And for the final touch? That would be Chanel's Levres Scintallantes Glossimer Lipgloss ($30) in Amour, a playful coral-pink shade. Perfection!
