Hello everyone! I’m so excited to be collaborating with Melissa of alwaysmfashion.com.  We took the spring/summer trends and decided to create a makeup and fashion series! After you read about the makeup look I did for Melissa, head over toMelissa's article and read about the fashion ensemble she's wearing! Don't forget to follow her on Instagram and Twitter. Both are @alwaysmfashion. 

 

Today's trend is the minimal or "no makeup" makeup look. I really like this trend right now because it's a nice break from the extreme Instagram contouring. It's an easy makeup look that will go with any every-day outfit. I personally enjoy wearing minimal makeup on days I need to quickly get to work or I need to quickly run errands.

 

 

 

How I created Melissa's look: 

I used a Korean concealer that Melissa owns and placed some under her eyes. 
I blended the concealer under her eyes using an e.l.f. makeup sponge.
I then took thistranslucent powderfrom Rimmel and lightly powdered Melissa's whole face. 
I appled blush from the e.l.f. Cosmetics Aqua Beauty Aqua Infused Blush and Bronzer Duo in Bronzed Pink Beige across her cheeks.
I applied the bronzer in the hollows of her cheeks and then softly blended it up to the blush line. 
For Melissa's eyes, I applied an eyeshadow base all over her lids.
I patted the e.l.f. Cosmetics Aqua Beauty Molten Liquid Eyeshadow in Rose Gold all over her lids. 
I added a little bit of the bronzer to her outer corners. 
I then blended out her crease using an e.l.f. cosmetics crease brush
I applied a mascara to her lashes.
Melissa already had her brows mostly done so I just added a little dark brown to any sparse areas I saw. 
For Melissa's lips...
I applied the Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Innocent to define the outer edges of her lips 
And I grabbed the NYX Butter Gloss in Cream Brulee and applied it all over her lips.
