If you need some more inspiration to get the job done, we’ve gathered five makeup tutorials to inspire your vacation makeup looks, featuring everything from a sunkissed minimalist look to a tutorial for faux freckles. Check ’em out, ahead, for all of the encouragement you need to at least get your makeup bag packed.
For Bronze Skin and Glossy Lids
Pro makeup artist and beauty vlogger Eman created a Shay Mitchell-inspired, glowy makeup tutorial featuring bronze skin and glossy lids. A few products she used to get the look include Lancôme Dual Finish Versatile Powder Foundation, Maybelline Lip Studio Shine Shot Topcoat and the Nudestix Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil.
For the Makeup Maximalist
You know this tutorial is going to be good because Roxette describes it as one of her favorite looks she’s ever created. The star of it is her blinding highlighter, so to be sure it’s the point of focus, Roxette pairs it with neutral lipstick and eyeshadow-less eyelids. It’s perfect for a neutral, full-coverage look for spring and summer.
For the Color Enthusiast
A statement-making look that will have everyone doing a double-take is this glossy pink eyeshadow from Mairaly, a.k.a harmonicurls on YouTube. All you need to DIY at home is concealer, translucent powder, eyeshadow (she uses this one from NYX Professional Makeup), and Aquaphor for the glossy effect. For a monochrome look, pair your glossy lids with matching glossy lips and then proceed to stare at your masterpiece — everyone else will!
For a Minimalist “Sunkissed” Routine
If you’re new to Nudestix, you’re bound to fall in love with the brand’s multipurpose must-haves. Here, co-founder Taylor Frankel walks us through how to use three new Nudestix products to achieve a natural, sunkissed finish. The three newbies include the Nudies Bronze Color Stick in Sunkissed, the Nudies Blush Stick in Sunset Strip and Magnetic Nude Glimmers.
