Summer pin-up make-up look

I’m back my lovely readers with a new post. Today it’s a sunny , hot summer day so I thought about showing you a summer pin-up make-up look using an orange lipstick shade instead of a hot red one, as per usual. You know I usually love to use neutral shades on my lids and strong, bold lipsticks.

I have thought about showing you some of my daily make-up looks and the products I use for a long time and it has proved difficult for me so far since I often don’t have time to photo the products and the make-up look. But I’ll try my best ; I want to show you the products in the make-up look, on the face not only in swatches, writing about them. Let’s begin :


Starting with the base, I applied around one full pump of Inglot HD Perfect Coverup foundation (review soon), mixed with MustaeV lustruous cream base, onto the face with my Sigma kabuki brush, blending it well onto the face and neck.

I followed with the Clinique concealer, covering my dark circles, then I set both the concealer and foundation with the Melkior Loose Powder in Natural. If I set the liquid/creamy products with powder they will last all day onto the skin together with the make-up.

I applied the the MustaeV Cheeky Chic blush in Floral Glow onto the cheeks and over it the Estee Lauder Limited Edition All Over Shimmer for a touch of shimmer. I really believe that a good blush suitable for your skin and hair color works wonders! It revives a tired complexion, makes you look good even if you are sick and makes you look younger and fresh if applied sparingly for a natural effect.


Onto the eyes I wanted a discrete neutral look to better showcase the black eyeliner and the lipstick. I used my Inglot nude eye shadows to  create a discrete base to better highlight the black eye liner from Lancôme Artliner  in black – you can see them here : Inglot love. I blended the Milani Luminoso blush in the crease and added on the lid and under the eye brows the 341 matte white mono eye shadow. I also used a black eye crayon on the bottom of the eyes – the Wjcon Long Lasting Eye Liner in 01 Deep Black.

I applied mascara on both top and bottom lashes – Estee Lauder’s Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara/Estee Lauder Lash Primer Plus Full Treatment Formula (one of my very favourites).


On the lips I kept a neutral look, with MUSTAEV TEN SHADE LIP CREAM PRO PALETTE, the shade 10 on my post Bright Orange (on the MustaeV site). I sparingly topped it with the MustaeV Glazing Lip Gloss in Golden Peach for a sensual, glossy look.

You can find most of the products used for this look in Sephora, Douglas, Kendra, Marionnaud and online. Check out the official sites.

I hope you like the make-up look. If you have questions related to the products I used in the make-up look, don’t hesitate to ask! I would love to hear your comments, ideas, proposals. Keep them coming ! Until next time ,   Love, M
