Colorful Summer Makeup

I love bright colorful makeup for summer, but I also love soft colorful shadows. I think this colorful summer makeup tutorial is not too bright, it almost has a watercolor feeling to it, don’t you think? It’s soft, but at the same time it’s colorful. Just a wash of green, orange and purple. Nothing bright, nothing out there, a soft colorful wash just the way I like it! Very wearable, but not outrageous.

Anyways, for the step-by-step tutorial I think I stood too far away from my ring light, and the purple on my lower lash line didn’t show up much. However, on the full face portrait, I stood closer to the light, so the color showed up better.
