Garden Party Makeup Tutorial


One of my favorite parts of summer has to be the beautiful array of flowers that bloom into fall. Although I have never actually been to a garden party, a girl can dream, right? -Especially if that party involves peonies and dahlias and tea in fancy saucers. Garden parties are what I had on my mind when creating this look, which is feminine and something a proper fancy lady would wear (I hope!).

Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer

Check out that sweet camera focus on my hand! 😉

Apply Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer to clean, moisturized skin. I love this primer because it evens out redness! Next, apply NARS Sheer Glow with the Beauty Blender, blending into the neck as needed. Again using the Beauty Blender, dot Maybelline Fit Me concealer under the eyes and blend. Apply concealer as needed to other parts of face (I did not do this step).


Mission accomplished: foundation and concealer!

Using a finger, blend MAC Paint Pot in Rubenesque all over the lid, blending up into the crease. This is what I used as a primer, and to make the shadows I used appear a little softer instead of really bold.

In order to let Rubenesque set for a little bit,  apply MUFE Aqua Brow and brush with ELF spoolie when finished.


With the Sonia Kashuk 130 brush, apply Milani Dolce Pink blush onto cheeks.
Next, take the Studio M Professional angled brush and sweep MAC Emphasize powder under eyes to set concealer. Using the same brush, lightly dab onto Hard Candy Tiki Bronzer, and sweep at the top of the cheekbones to add a golden highlight.


Now that that is all done, we’re ready to work on the eyes! This is really easy. With the Rite Aid Renewal brush, apply Cut the Cake from the Too Faced Romantic Eye palette all over the lids. With the Sigma E25, blend Ever After lightly into the crease. Basically this is just going to transition everything together when we add the next color: Kiss the Bride.

With the angled Sonia Kashuk brush, apply Kiss the Bride all over the brow bone, blending down into the crease. Use the E25 brush to blend everything together again; the colors are basically going to work together to create a soft neutral. Using the same brush, gently apply Soulmates in the inner corner of the eyes to brighten them.

Line the eyes with the Ulta Eye Crayon in Fairytale, using the smudger sponge to soften the line. Apply L’Oreal Power Volume 24 Hour Black Smoke mascara to upper and lower lashes.


To finish the look, brush the EcoTools Face and Body brush into the MAC Sun Dipped Bronzer, and work around the perimeter of the face, blending lightly into the neck. This will create a warm glow and add some color.

To finish the look, apply Revlon Pink Pearl to the lips.



That’s it! Sorry for the lack of eye photos- major lighting issues today with the sun going in and out of the clouds! 🙂 I really like this lipstick and the combination of the Milani blush with Hard Candy Tiki- plus, both are super affordable drugstore products that last forever!

My husband really liked this look on me! 🙂
