July is already upon us, and there is one look you should definitely include into your summertime night makeup look. Seen here on Jennifer Lopez is a very subtle, but easy and beautiful way of getting that dramatic look for those special summer nights. This look is all about making your natural beauty stand out, without going overboard, by using just a few amazing products that will do the trick and brighten up your face right away! Also, with the summer heat, you don’t want to apply much product to your face by keeping it very light. That doesn’t mean that you cannot still get a powerful, glam look for yourself! Here’s the way to get Jennifer Lopez’s soft, but dramatic, summer makeup look in just 2 steps using Dolce & Gabbana‘s Summer 2012 Lace Collection!
1. First, curl your lashes with an eyelash curler to open up the eye — this will make them pop and and make your eyes appear more open. From Dolce and Gabbana‘s new summer line, you can achieve part of this look by using their Intenseyes Black Intensity Mascara ($31.00). The extremely deep black pigment will define your lashes right away. To apply, simply take the wand out of the tube and wiggle the brush starting from the inside of the lashes upwards to the top of the lashes. Get as close to the lash line as possible. This will amplify the fierce appearance and makes for a much more dramatic look.
You can apply several coats or one as desired. The wand is designed to separate your lashes without clumping and sticking together. Also, keep in mind of higher heat temperatures during the humid, sticky months which causes mascara to often run; this product is specially formulated to be long-lasting and smudge-proof! The formula of the mascara not only defines your eyes and lashes, but, it will volumize them as well — extending and really amplifying them. This is how you will achieve your dramatic eye just by this single product by Dolce & Gabbana. It’s very simple, quick and easy-to-use. Right away, you will have started the creation of this smashing summer look.
2. One more amazing product part of Dolce & Gabbana‘s new line is their luminous Ultra Shine Lipgloss ($32.00). The shade that Jennifer is wearing is a neutral, lighter color to contrast the deepened black dramatic eye. This contrasting effect brings out both the lip and eye as they are on opposite sides of the color spectrum. Their Ultra Shine Lipgloss in Honey is a perfect product to achieve this final step. The gloss is very pigmented and covers the mouth entirely, so no need to apply liner or lipstick underneath. The concentrated formula brightens up the face and provides excellent moisture and shine to your pout without a tacky feeling. The neutral honey shade can be used on any skin tone: To apply, simply use the soft, angled tip of the brush right on to your lips covering both the upper and bottom areas.
There you have it! In just two quick and easy steps you have perfected a summer night out look that is intense, powerful, but in a very natural way. These two amazing products from Dolce & Gabbana‘s new makeup line is surely the way to go in acquiring Jennifer’s breathtaking summer makeup look. Go ahead and give this look a try!
