Summer Makeup Tutorial: Coral Eyes, Dewy Skin

The change of seasons always gives me an excuse to play with more color and amp up my makeup look. Today I felt like experimenting with bright coral and orange colors, while keeping the base very fresh and dewy. Even though I have combination to oily skin, I still love the look of dewy, glowing skin especially during summertime. That’s why I use a matte foundation and add in highlighter to achieve the same look without becoming an oil slick throughout the day because of my Portuguese roots;) I hope this inspires you to switch up your look for summer and try something different!
