Summer Makeup Tutorial : Look #1 - 'Brunch' In The Sun

We are in the peak of summer and there is no sign of things cooling down ever. So, why not make the best of the heat and flaunt your best summer looks ! That's exactly what we will be doing with our In The Sun Series - showcasing a bunch of fun summer looks !

I woke up this morning at about 11 :45 AM - great time for a weekend brunch ! Gathered up a couple of friends and hit a new brunch spot only to have them say they were done serving brunch. So we headed out to the lake side for a sunny lunch. Thankfully we scored a great table ! It was fun looking at all the boats passing by and checking out people slathering on SPF so they could enjoy their time in the sun without burns. We also contemplated buying boats ...but that's another story for another time.

The ruffle top and jeans shown above are from Express.

This is what I wore to brunch. I went with a very natural looking minimalistic peach /pink look. Its almost morning ( not technically at 1 PM but go with me on this, will ya ?) and I couldn't fiddle with a laundry list of products. Also more importantly I was having a 'as good as it gets' skin day so of course I had to showcase the good skin and keep things minimal !

- Envision Beauty - The Solution moisturizer
- Covergirl Tru Blend Pressed Mineral Foundation - 04 Soft Honey
- Mild shimmer peach shade from Pur Mineral Paint by Number Kit (now discontinued)
Substitute with MAC Paradisco Eyeshadow
- Flirt It Curl Mascara
- Julie Hewett Eyeshadow - Vita for my brows.

Becca Soft touch Blush - Song bird

- Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Lip Pencil - 01 Pink
- Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss - Pulse

I like applying the lip gloss first and going over it with my lip pencil. Took me a grand total of five minutes to dress up. Paired with a gray ruffle top and jeans I thought I looked very much brunch-y given that I am not a dress / skirts kinda girl. Very pleased with myself on this one !

What would you wear for a Brunch In The Sun ? Let us know in the comments !
