Hey! If you follow Velour Lashes on instagram, you would know they were holding a challenge giveaway for their “Thick & Fluffy” lash collection. The rules were to post your summer inspired makeup look on your instagram, include what lashes you were wearing, & obviously tag them/hashtag #VelourMakeupChallenge. Then they will pick the top 4 looks next week & followers will be able to vote on it! Unfortunately, this contest has ended a few hours ago so it’ll be too late to enter!
So basically I couldn’t help myself! I had to put makeup on to enter the challenge & the great thing is that you have a chance to win lashes! Who doesn’t love winning things (or at least try to)?!
So I wanted to share with you my summer inspired look, it’s really simple. Most of the focus point is to the eyes, although I kept the color range as neutral as possible, I added a pop of glitter to the center of the lids. The colors I used kind of remind me of the sun! I used gold, yellow, brown, orange shades for this look! For the lip, I used a nude lip gloss!
Before I post pictures of this look, I know I said this look was really simple, it completely is. Once I post the product details, you will probably think I’m crazy. Yes, I did use a lot of products! However, compared to my usual dramatic looks, this is nothing!
So lets get onto the look!
This is kind of like a halo eye, except not too dramatic. I made sure to blend everything together really well, the pop of glitter in the center lid adds the “halo” effect, I guess you can say!

Well that basically wraps it up! A lot of you were asking what I use to take my pictures & to answer that I use a Sony RX100 II. It’s a regular point & shoot camera but it has some serious quality to it. Plus it has wifi built in, which is why I love it so much! It’s so easy for me to edit my pictures on my phone & upload to instagram! Hehe.
