We’re huge fans of the famed L.A. brand’s transformative, studio-tested cosmetics, and we can’t think of anywhere better to find all the essentials for the perfect beachy look for summer. For this sale, the makeup whizzes at Smashbox came up with three amazing looks using the products we’ll be offering at Gilt.com — and we couldn’t be more excited to try them out! Read on to find out how to achieve that perfect California glow (hint, Smashbox’s much-loved primer is key!) and then shop Smashbox Cosmetics on Tuesday, May 8, at noon ET on Gilt.com.
LOOK 1: Naturally Pretty
Lay the groundwork for an understated, wear-everywhere look with Smashbox’s clear Photo Finish primer, the “Be Discovered” cream cheek trio in “In Lights”, and the rosewater, champagne, and bliss shades from their “Be Discovered” eye shadow palette.
LOOK 2: Perfectly Polished
Punch up your everyday look (after applying the aforementioned Photo Finish primer, of course!) with the Step-by-Step Contour Kit, a bone-structure-enhancing base that every girl should have in her makeup bag. Next, apply cream gold and praline shadow from the “Shades of Fame” palette to your eyelids, and mocha shadow to your brows. A few swipes of the O-Glow Intuitive Cheek Color on your cheeks and lips, and you’ll be perfectly prepped for whatever the day throws your way.
LOOK 3: High Glam
When the occasion calls for glamour, pull out all the stops! Using Smashbox’s Photo Finish primer as your baseline, add on all the bells and whistles you know and love. Create a similar look to the “Perfectly Polished” one above, substituting in the dramatic purple shadow from the “Ultimate Eyes” trio in Brown, and finish your look off with the “Shades of Fame” Reflective High-Gloss Shine Lip Gloss set in fetching hibiscus.
