Askmewhats Version: "Summerified!"

Thank you everyone for the appreciation of my simple nail art :) My dear readers made me go on, inspires me to create more! :) Thank you!

This post is for Yumeko, girl! I know you've been waiting for matching nails and makeup!!! Finally!!!! Hope you like my version of "Summerified"!!!!

Here's my final version!

And this is what I did
to achieve this look!

Prior to make-up application
Primed my lids with CS White Gel Liner
to make the e/s stick and more vibrant

Step 1:

With a smaller crease brush, apply matte orange e/s on the outer V, blending inward. I am using AREZIA palette, my first palette I bought from Strawberrynet (not good quality e/s so skip this lol)

Step 2:

Using MAC242 or any flat shader brush stiff enough for pigments, pat on Tangerine Pearl Mica from Coastal Scents on the crease area going a bit beyond, reaching close to the Orange color on Step 1.

Step 3:

Pat on NYX Ultra Pearl Mania Gold on the center of the lids.

At this point, everything looks separated and harsh. Time to use a blending brush to blend all the colors together, if pigments are falling out, re-apply those pigments til you are happy :)


You can deepen the outer V with a matte grayish brown e/s, I used MAC's Coquette.

Step 4:

Line your uppler lashline with CS Gel Liner in Deep Plum, your desired thickness.

Step 5:

On the lower lashline, line the bottom part with Fashion 21's Lagoon eyeshadow Stick, line CS Gel Liner Deep Plum over it to create colorful looks.

Did you know that?
The eyeliners represent the colorful rhinestones I've used on my nails

Here's how they look like
all together!

I added some "oomph" on my summer look!
Applied "natural" falsies
with Ardell Lash Grip Eyelash Adhesive

Put on P&J Curly Mascara in Black
to combine the natural lashes
and falsies together

I think I am loving this falsies!

What's on the rest of my face?

Joppa Foundation iN Medium Light #2
this shade is a bit dark on me now
but PERFECT for summer

For my Cheeks

P&J face Color
using Thevi's Dome Brush

For the lips

Bath & Body Gold lip gloss
on top of Kiehl's Lip Balm no. 1

I use only gloss to create a very simple shimmery lips, it's summer time anyways, no need for super dark lips! :) And the eye make up is bold enough so I'll go for subtle lips

Yumeko!!!! I hope you like this!
My hard work is covered with my
darn hands! :P

Hope you enjoyed this!
I had fun creating this look! :)
Stay happy!

  28. Teeyah, thanks sis!

    Aquaracer, I love the natural falsies, I've always thought it's Over the top on case, but it looks ok in person !

    Anastacia, hey sweetie, I'm glad you enjoyed this!

  29. Yu, my pleasure, I have to put a pop of color to represent my rhinestones and I'm glad you appreciate it.

    Catherine, oooh P&J blush doesn't fail me :) Thanks

    Prettybeautiful, thanks to Yumeko's request, now we all know we can match our nails with makeup :D

  30. i tried using the CS white gel liner as a base and you're right it does make it more vibrant but it makes e/s blending harder. do you have any tips?

  31. i like how flushed your cheeks are looking in the last pic nikki. and the fake lashes look natural on you! i have a few sassi brand fake lashes and they look like them too.

  32. beautiful! i love that palette too :)

  33. orange looks good on you!! :) and the nails, you are so good at it. i attempted and sucked A LOT. haha. :)

  34. so pretty! and that P&J blush looks so great on you.

  35. Crystal, you start by patting the e/s first, do not blend the colors at once , it'll help as it is hard to blend coz the cream is still sticky the first time you applied it, try patting it first, go on with the other colors before you slowly blend them! HTH

    Jo, thanks, I'm glad you like the flush, very summery :D That's my goal :)

    Vanessa M, thanks sweetheart!

    Care G, have you tried the gradient nails? Give it some more time, more trial and error :)

    Connie,thanks, I love that P&J blush :)

  36. So pretty Nikki!! It really matches your nails too!! hehehe!!

    So coincidently, i was doing an orange look yesterday too!! But i looked horrible in it so i wiped it off immediately!! So jealous that you can carry off oranges!

  37. Hello sis, thanks for the comment on my page!=]

    Yessss they do match - your make up and nails.. super cute!!!!! Galing mo talaga Nikki. Hope you'll have a great day.. wherever you may be.. hehe.

  38. i always tot orange is a hard color on eyes but u prove it so wearable...

  39. I love your blog! & your latest new eye look! ;) You're so cute.

    And I love it that you're from the Philippines! YAAAAY.

  40. very summery indeed! i love the purple liner:)

  41. I'm so jealous of girls who can wear warm shadows - I tried but I always look tired. Oh look lovely and those nails too! :)

  42. love love the shadows. my kind of colours and that blue liner is fab!

    i hate it when you can match the e/s with nail polish. i can't wear NP...

    grr... don't let me see your nails in real life. or else! :P

  43. Jenn , I'm sure it doesn't look horrible! You could have shown it to us! :D

    hahhaha yes Ms. katin, I'll have a great day sleeping and eating like a pig :D

    Syn@3sTh3sI@ I'm glad you think otherwise of orange now :)

    mszcheysser, yay to another Filipina too! :)

    Ladystarr, thanks

  44. PB, looking tired on warm colors? really? I've always imagined warm colors on you and I think it's workable!

    Jojoba, sorry dear, just ignore the nails part lol When you see me in real life, are you going to hug me because i"ll be doing your nails..AFTER you cook for me LOL Deal?
