If you can’t contain your excitement for the upcoming warm weather, try this: start planning your makeup looks for the summer season with inspiration from our latest beauty editorial. Shot by Toronto-based photographer Jonathon Smith, the imagery is made up of festival-ready as well as more wearable, everyday looks dreamed up by makeup artist Nate Matthews.
Working with models Thilini Pradhana, Ani Swells, Chloe Chang and Chloe Christian, Matthews has showed us five different takes on summer beauty by using a mix of cult-loved products and some of the best makeup launches of Summer 2019. From Dior Makeup and YSL Beauty, to Charlotte Tilbury and Milk Makeup, watch us play and learn a few techniques from our editorial.
For a dewy glow and a flush of color, we used Charlotte Tilbury’s Glowgasm Beauty Highlighter Wand in “Peachgasm,” Dior Rouge Blush “999,” Tatcha’s Magnolia Bloom Camellia Lip Balm and Dior Addict Lip Tattoo in “541.”
Experiment with playful eye makeup looks, like the one pictured above using Glossier Play’s Colorslide in “Sparkle Shark” and shades from the limited-edition Dior 5 Couleurs Wild Earth “Sienna” eyeshadow palette. Our choice of blush-highlighter here is YSL Beauty’s newly launched Shimmer Rush Collector Blush Palette.
