HOW TO

Under the Gunn: California Dreamin’

Did you catch last night’s Project Runway: Under the Gunn? We’re in week 8 and it’s only getting better & better.

During this week’s episode, the designers were challenged to create a “California Look” made up of not only fabric, but other tangible items you would find at a beach party—think sunglasses, tablecloths, umbrellas, etc. Where are our beach party people!? Hands up! With summer fast approaching, minimal makeup is on our mind. The beauty look for this week is so effortless & flawless, we can’t wait to try it! And hey, who needs a beach party when you look this good?

HOW TO GET THE LOOK:

Go Home or Go Big Easy

First, start with a great base. Right now we’re obsessing over our new multi-balancing, bigger than BB, big easy cream as a foundation—it even has SPF—win! If you’re looking for even more coverage, sweep hello flawless powder for the ultimate flawless finish.

Higher Than High Brow

High brow is definitely one of our favorite products. Bring the pencil right under your eyebrow, then draw a smooth, thin line and blend—its light pink hue will create an instant eye lift! Another amazing way to use high brow is to apply the pencil to the inner corner of your eye. It opens up your eye & adds a bit of sparkle, making it appear like you’ve had a full 12 hours sleep (wink wink).

Fake It ‘Till You Make It

The last step for this look is contouring. We’re going to go out on a limb here, but this is definitely the most important piece of this look. Everyone is in the same boat coming fresh out of winter, so grab that hoola and get to work! Suck in those cheekbones and apply starting at the apple of your cheek to the top of your cheekbone. Violá & helllooo summer time!
