AMW Version: Twiggy Inspired Summer-Ready Make-Up

 I want to continue my discussion on Summer-Ready Make-up!  I just gave tips yesterday on how to summer-readify (if there's such term) your make-up!  Now it's time to create my version of a bright, fun summer make-up anyone can do!

Of course a twist will always be nice!  I have some bottom lash falsies which reminded me so much of Twiggy!  Twiggy-look is known for "cutting the crease" and I want to put a twist!  Bright, summery shades plus the falsies Twiggy is known for!  Are you ready for the outcome?

Here you go, simple shades yet falsies gave  the nice impact!

AMW Diagram
Promise, the steps are super simple
and easy to follow!

Step 1:
Apply a nice, matte base for the colors to pop out.  Most summer shades are not that pigmented like the ones I will use.  So I use Benefit's Lemon Aid.

Pat on MAC Sunshine Yellow eyeshadow with a flat shader blush.  Apply on the crease area going beyond.  Pat more as desired.

 Step 2:
With a small blending brush from the Urban Decay Palette, I applied Milani Garden Mist eyeshadow on the crease area only blending upwards.  

Step 3:
Since I planned on using thick falsies, I won't be lining my eyes much, instead I tigthtlined with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil in Zero (black).  Apply Urban Decay 24/7  Glide on Eye Pencil in Yeyo (white) on the water line to make eyes pop.  

Do not forget to fill in your brows.

I re-used GlamBox Mink Lash
I love it that the lashes stay in good shape
even after several usage

I applied A020 lower lash from KKCenterHK
Easy to apply even for a first timer like myself
I used Ardell LashGrip Eyelash Adhesive in Clear

 Voila!  My Twiggy Inspired
Summer-Ready makeup
You can always opt just to create the eye makeup minus the falsies

What's on the rest of my face?

Paul & Joe Moisturizing Compact Foundation 30

  5. Love the color combination. Feels like summer na talaga with your FOTD! :P

  6. tamang-tama I have Milani Garden mist e/s! you look so pretty Nikki! Btw, super nice yung hairstyle mo ha..

  7. Ms. Nikki, would I be able to pull this eotd off even though I'm morena? And you're right Ms. Nikki, a lighter base than foundation is best for summer. I use a finishing powder on top of my concealer to make my skin look and feel lighter and fresher this summer. ;)


  8. Really nice!!! I like the yellow-green blend, great for Chines/Asian skin tone :) Been a looooong time since I put on full make-up. Great tips!

  10. Ooooh pretty! I love the Elianto lippy you used. :D

  11. So pretty and summery! Love the hair!

  12. I super love green make-up and you're so good at this! I just can't find my favorite color anymore. (Shu Uemura in ME green.)

  13. Yellow's really summery, isn't it :D? Lovely look ^_^.

  14. you look gorgeous and summer ready. loving the lashes :)

  15. Marge, oh, I am not sure though if they still sell it! I believe they are from a collection, but it doesn't hurt to look around :)

    Pammy, I'm glad I was able to create summer look with the shades I've used

    Khymm, nice no? I haven't use those colorful e/s for quite some time na!

  17. Kikay Morena, as stated over my cbox (I actually answered it there), yes, you can pull this off even if you're morena, you can change your blush with an earth tone color like bronzers, it'll look way better :D

    Mom-Friday, thanks for the comment dear! Glad you liked it! Hay, me din, seldom lang do I wear full makeup! Actually I usually do it just for the sake of AMW versions :)
