While browsing through my Instagram feed, I couldn’t help but stop at Pallavi Ruhail’s new photo . Super fresh, super pretty and no fuss- this is exactly the kind of makeup you need all summer. So i got her to give us a bit of a breakdown on how she created it

“Living in Florida means a lot of beach and pool days! While it’s a lot to ask to go completely makeup free, at times putting on too much is also not a great idea. I had to attend a pool party in my apartment complex and wanted to keep my makeup light, fuss free yet not boring at all. I decided to skip the liner all together since that’s the first thing that comes to anyone’s mind when they hear the word ‘makeup’.

Face – I began this look with MAC Studio Prep + Prime and Benefit Porefessional Pore Minimizer pro balm. These two products ensure that my foundation goes on smoothly and lasts even longer. For the base, I used MAC Studio Fix foundation in the shade NW25 and set it with some powder – Chanel Mat Lumière compact in shade 40 sable. I didn’t do a lot contouring but a highlighter is must to get that glow! Wearing the Kylie Cosmetics kylighter in shade Chocolate cherry and NARS palette for mild contouring and blush.

Eyes – I ditched the liner and opted for some some eyeshadow in a summery shade with a hint of mascara. The eyeshadow was from Urban Decay Naked 2 palette shade Verve and Clinique Chubby lash mascara. Also, I can’t step out anywhere unless I have my #BrowsOnFleek! Used NYX eyebrow pencil in shade EP05 dark brown for this.

Lips – To keep up with the minimalism, I wore a nude lippie – KKWxKylieCosmetics nude Lip kit in the shade Kimmie. Finally I set everything with Urban Decay de-slick setting spray. This makeup works well for beach/pool parties or even a summery outing or vacation.”
