If for some reason you haven’t noticed, it’s summer, which means it’s a million degrees outside. We definitely love makeup more than the next girl (or boy), but we’re not always trying to work harder than we have to. And believe us, when your contour sweats off halfway through application, you’re working harder than you have to.
So we decided to look to one of our favorite Mexican soda brands for color inspiration that would look good and feel good este verano for our seasonal beauty shoot. Enter Jarritos, which hey, also tastes damn good during the summer (or you know, whenever). We took our favorite flavors and translated them into totally wearable summer beauty looks.
Products Used: On her face, we used Kett Cosmetics Fixx Creme Makeup, Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Skin Liquid Lighting in Candlelight, Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder in Incandescent, and Cinema Secrets Ultralucent Setting Powder in Soft Custard. On eyes, she wears Urban Decay Brow Beater Pencil & Brow Tamer Gel in Neutral Brown, Ardell Wispies Lashes. Lips are a mix of OCC Cosmetic Colour Pencil in Tarred & Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Rocksteady.
All makeup here is same as above with the exception of lips. Xylah wears Urban Decay’s Vice Lipstick in 714 to match Jarritos’ Fruit Punch flavor.
Red lipstick is a beauty classic, but you can still have some fun with it. It doesn’t have to be all romantic Hollywood glamour (although we love that too). You can deepen the color for a more gothic vibe, or sheer it out for a playful pop of color.
Products Used: On her face, we used Kett Cosmetics Fixx Creme Makeup, Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Skin Liquid Lighting in Candlelight, Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder in Incandescent, Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush in Bang, and Cinema Secrets Ultralucent Setting Powder in Soft Custard. On her eyes, she’s wearing Urban Decay Brow Beater Pencil & Brow Tamer Gel in Neutral Brown, Urban Decay 24/7 Waterline Eye Pencil in Walk of Shame, and essence I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara. On lips, Xylah wears OCC Colour Pencil in Grandma. Nails are Sinful Colors Lacquer in All the Rage.
Mango and Mandarin are two of our favorite flavors of Jarritos, and the bright orange colors were easy to translate into our love for makeup. If you think orange is hard to wear, think again. You can easily wear it on your eyes in an eyeshadow or liner, such as NYX’s Liquid Liner, above, or as a lipstick. However, we really like it as a blush. We know, we know: orange blush looks a bit scary in the packaging, but once applied and blended it out, it gives the skin a soft, warm glow. To ease into it, opt for a cream version that’s easily sheered out when blended, such as Laura Mercier’s Colour Dots Lip & Cheek Sheer in Sangria, pictured below.
Clockwise from Left: Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush in Bang, $26.00; MAC Matte Eye Shadow in Chrome Yellow, $16.00; Laura Mercier Colour Dots Lip & Cheek Sheer in Sangria, $32.00; OCC Creme Colour Concentrate in Newt, $23.00; NYX Vivid Brights Liquid Liner in Vivid Delight, $7.00; Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel in #84, $14.00.
For the Guava flavor, we loved the soft pink shade, but that color is everywhere in beauty. We decided to ditch the baby pink lipstick in favor of a graphic, pastel pink liner.
All face makeup same as above. On eyes, Xylah wears shades from the Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 Palette and NYX’s Vivid Brights Liquid Liner in Vivid Petal. On lips, she’s wearing Youngblood Luminous Crème Blush in Taffeta.
