Inexpensive Summer Glow Look (2 versions)

Good evening all!  I have two versions of this look.  This one uses inexpensive products and is a little less intense.

I just used the Sephora Collection Flip Palette, Revlon Colorstay Foundation, Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Lipstick in Fruit Punch and a little mascara.

I started off using a little Urban Decay Priming potion, followed by my base color.  It is the first color on the bottom row in the Flip Palette(shimmery light brown/taupe), then I used the second color on the top row, which is a shimmery light brown/mauve shade. I applied this starting at the crease and blended out into the outer corners, and also on the lower lash line.  I used Sonia Kashuk's Crease brush, which is only $10.00 at Target and is a great brush.  Finally, I applied my foundation and the bronzer in the Flip Palette.










The second version of this look does use more expensive products, but packs a little more punch.  For this, I used Lancome's Filigree and Exhibition shadow.  Filigree is a light, shimmering gold and exhibition is a light plum.  And I used Lancome's L'Absolu Rouge lipstick in Daisy Rose.  Daisy Rose is a bright corally pink.  This is my favorite formula of lipstick.  It goes on so smooth and doesn't dry lips out. Plus, the container is magnetic, so you don't have to worry about it coming loose in a bag or purse.
  Instead of using the bronzer in the Sephora Flip palette, I used the Sephora Sculpting Disk in "Sun" on my cheeks, and I used "Light" on the bridge of my nose and the brow bone.
