Summer is in session and that calls for a simple, fresh and clean beauty routine. Even on the hottest of days, we want to look cool and chic without wearing a lot of makeup or spending a lot of time in the mirror. One quick and easy way to achieve this is to choose one feature and go bold with it, keeping the rest of the face soft and natural. We think actress Hayden Panettierre got the look right at the recent Milan Menswear Fashion Week. Hayden’s makeup focused on a hot beauty trend–the bold brow–in a way that was perfect for a summer day, or evening!
Here’s what you need to get the look with our favorite green beauty goods!
W3ll People’s Narcissist Foundation Stick: Create flawless, glowing skin by applying this as a foundation or concealer where needed. It gives just the right amount of coverage, while feeling very lightweight and natural on the face.
Christopher Drummond Encore Powder: Dust this over your foundation with a fluffy brush to minimize shine and extend wearability. Stow it in your makeup bag for those quick touch-ups later in the day!
Shobha Brow Pencils: The key product for Hayden’s look! First, define your brows using light, hair-like strokes to fill in the shape. If needed, extend the strokes just outside your brow line to get the “bold brow” effect. Then, comb the product through with a brow brush or a clean mascara wand and set with a bit of aloe vera gel.
Alima Pure Luminous Shimmer Eyeliner: Try the Noir, a shimmering gunmetal on the top lash line and Black Cherry, a soft, deep plum, on the botton lash line. Using two different colors (rather than black or brown) is a bit playful and gives the right amount of definition to this look.
Jane Iredale Longest Lash Mascara: Load up on this thickening and lengthening formula on your top and bottom lashes. P.S. Hayden is also wearing a few individual clusters of lashes for a more dramatic effect!
Ilia Beauty Multistick: Get this beautiful, sheer wash of color by applying All of Me to the apples of your cheeks with a stiff brush or fingertips. The creamy texture is easy to blend and delivers a gorgeous glow to the cheeks.
rms beauty Lip Shine: Finish the look with a lip product that’s close to your natural lip color. For something like Hayden’s shade, go for rms beauty’s Bloom, a soft, pretty pink with nourishing properties.
