Summer Proof Eye: A Video Review

Summer is in full swing, and the last thing you want to do is find that your flawless makeup application
is shifting and creasing from the heat of the searing summer sun. With so many summer looks available, it’s so important to find looks that have staying power! Beauty enthusiast, Youtuber, and web personality, Megan Lytle of, delivers a fresh spin on an “Easy Summer Smokey Eye.” This smokey eye is not too dramatic and is wearable as a flirty daytime look. Megz use of eye shadow primer is essential in making sure that the shadows last all day without creasing. The key to ensure that this look is soft for daytime hours is the blending. The neutral browns from the MAC product line that she uses are blended well so that there are no harsh lines. By adding a pop of shimmer in the middle of the eyelid, the intensity of these, Anastasia's  Sable and MAC's Brown Script, deep earthy shades are toned-down to make this a wearable day look. MAC's mineralized blush in Stratus offers a shimmery flush of color to the skin that is perfect for a summer look. Her use of a sheer pink lipstick and lipglass, Creme De' Nude and Seducing Sound, gives a girly feel to this look. She balances out the 
vivid pinks of the lip color with a brown lip liner that tones them down. All that is left is to put on some falsies and you're done. This easy breezy summer eye look will be my next go to look for a movie or date night.
