A Cool Toned Summer Makeup Tutorial

With pretty much any beauty lover, myself included, you may think that cool tones are reserved for either a super smoky eye or the colder months of the year. I’m here to tell you that this isn’t the case.

I recently found, after many months of wondering where the hell I’d lost it, my Lime Crime Velvetine in Cashmere! (In case you were wondering, it was just in a bag I haven’t used for months). I was dying to wear it because of how long it’s been and realised, it’s the kind of colour I’d usually wear in the colder months due to that greige feel.
I was insistent on wearing it so I came up with a cool toned look all over, which is perfect for any season! To keep the look ‘summery’ I used a lot of cream products to give my skin that summer glow.

The base would actually be perfect for wearing on any summers day with just a loads of mascara and a lip balm or gloss. In fact, I’ll be trying that out very soon! Let me know if you do too!
