 How to add a little sunshine to your look!

-Try this look on your eyes by blending a tangerine color like Makeup Forever Tangerine Eyeshadow onto the crease of your eyes in a window-shield wiper motion using a small fluffy brush like Mac 224 brush.  

-Add a little bit of what I call lemon drop color onto the lids Makeup Forever Buttercup eyeshadow #400 and pop in the inner corners of the eyes using a small brush like the Mac brush 242 to add intensity and create the perfect summer lemonade makeup. Finish with lots of mascara!

Then pop an orange/peachy lip color like Nars Orgasm Lipgloss, starting from the center of the lips working your way outwards to create the perfect summer lip cocktail!
