As we near the middle of August, I find myself clinging onto the last bits of summer with super bronzed, glowing, ethereal makeup. I’ve got the Gerard Cosmetics Audrey Star Powder for you today, which is a brand new product and gives my cheekbones that gorgeous glow you see above. I’ve also got Kimchi Doll Lipstick for you, as well, which is a brilliant baby doll pink shade that will look great on a variety of skin tones. Come live up the last days of summer with me inside,
Audrey is a warm, champagne gold highlighter. There are 3 of these highlight shades: Lucy, Marilyn, and Audrey. All of them are named and created after the famous classic screen siren’s of the past. I’m a huge Audrey Hepburn fan and I liken myself to her the most, so of course I chose to test this one out. It’s absolutely stunning. It’s silky smooth and gives your cheeks the most gorgeous glow ever.
You can see just how powerful that glow is along my cheekbones. It reflects light like crazy and you can use it along your brow-bone, down the center of your nose, and even as an eyeshadow.
Kimchi Doll is a baby doll pink and definitely super versatile. You can wear this with dramatic eye makeup or for everyday wear. It’s going to look more pink if you’re fair skinned and more like a nude shade if you’re darker skinned. I’m quite tan at the moment, so it looks like more of a nude pink on me. It’s super pigmented and goes great with Audrey as a highlight.
I smoked my eyes out using the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette and made sure my skin looked ultra dewy and glowing. I wanted the whole look to be very bronzed and glowing and 100% reminiscent of summer.
While I am very much looking forward to my favorite season, autumn, I definitely know I will be transitioning to “fall makeup” soon, with darker lip colors and more of a matte skin finish. These products help me cling on to the last few weeks of summer!
