Summer Beach Makeup look with Archetype Cosmetics

I've been browsing the internet looking for some beach makeup looks. I can't find anything that really screams BEACH. When I think of the beach, warm sand, golden sun and sparkling water comes to mind. So I wanted to create a look that sort of represents those elements. I didn't use false lashes or liner to keep it bright and simple. What do you think?



Eyes (all applied in this order):
Chafing Relief Powder-Gel (applied to upper lid, blending in gently with ring finger)
Detrivore eye primer (applied all around the eyes patting then rubbing in gently with ring finger)
elf - innocent (applied under brow with MAC 217 by patting, sweeping and blending downward) 
Archetype - Verre de Soie (applied to inner Corner with MAC 228 by patting)
Archetype - Ophelia's Tears (applied to inner V with MAC 228 by patting)
Archetype - Venus Fly Trap (applied to inner half of crease with MAC 217 by patting then sweeping outward)  
Archetype - Vally of the Kings (applied to outer 1/3 of upper eye area with MAC 217 by patting then sweeping inward) 
Archetype - Daybreak Aeval (applied thick to upper lash line with MAC 228 by patting/sweeping upward)
Archetype - Daybreak Aeval (applied to outer 1/3 of lower lash line with MAC 228 by patting/sweeping outward)
Archetype - Venus Fly Trap (applied to middle of lower lash line with MAC 228 by patting/sweeping outward)
Collection 2000 Glam Crystals Dazzling Gel Liner - Le Freak (swiped onto upper lash line)
Cover Girl Volume exact mascara in Very Black (upper lashes)

Eyebrows: Ardell brow powder in soft black (applied with MAC 266)

Lips: Sobe lipstick in Camelot
WalMart Halloween sparkly doesn't have a name!

Face: Skin MD Shielding lotion
Physicians Formula Healthy Wear SPF 50 Powder - Translucent Light (applied with a flocked sponge by patting, then blending in) 
Sobe Bronzer - Tan-tilizer (applied to apples of cheeks with an angled blush brush)


  1. I love how it reminds me of a tropical fruity drink

  2. Those lips are awesome! You always do such gorgeous color combos. You're my idol :)

  3. That lip combo... oh my gosh!

  4. Pretty!! Haven't seen anyone use Archetype for a long time & it's nice to see their gorgeous colors.

  5. I think you look best with darker cooler colors. These are such warm colors it seems to wash you out. The gold lip effect is really neat though!

  6. Yes, this does look beachy. And the Halloween gold shimmer lipstick works for a summery-beach look.

  7. The lips are my favorite part!

  8. I actually did a similar look to this a few days ago, with yellow on the lid, orange in the crease and a darker teal liner. Great minds think alike :)

  9. SOOOO pretty <3 Those colors make me want to run to the beach and dive into the water! And I love the way you look without falsies, your eyes are very pretty!
