Everyone knows the iconic Dutch makeup artist and beauty blogger NikkieTutorials (and if you don’t, give her a google!). She is the reason 15-year-olds are out here looking like Kylie Jenner lookalikes. Seriously! If she were popular when I grew up, I probably wouldn’t have left my house wearing foundation that was 5 shades darker than my actual skin tone. Alas, she’s here now, and we love her for that. If you need some makeup inspiration for the summer, look no further. She will give you the tools you need to bring the heat with your looks. Here are 5 products she suggests to get glowing this summer. She is the girl who did Lady Gaga’s and Kim Kardashians’ makeup, so she knows what she’s talking about!
For a glamorous summer party look, NikkieTutorials suggests the Pure Minerals Double Ego eyeliner. The color is STUNNING, guys. Whether you’re getting dressed up to go to the club, or just looking for new ways to have a hot girl summer while you’re at work, there’s no going wrong with this eyeliner. You can use it to make a flirty wing, or to line your inner lid. Whatever way you feel called, NikkieTutorials approves.
NikkieTutorials’ Extreme Glam With Fenty Beauty
We love a beauty icon who supports another beauty icon. Seeing NikkieTutorials get glammed up with products from Rihanna’s makeup empire fills me with joy. I’m a huge fan of both of them, but I’ve always been a little scared to try out Fenty products because of my sensitive skin. NikkieTutorials’ video gave me the boost I needed to snag some summer beauty essentials for myself. In the video below, she uses the Fenty beauty Killawatt Foil highlighter duo to give her look some serious glam. I personally don’t suggest wearing this look to the beach because it will probably melt off your face. But, if you’re wanting a makeup look that will give you the motivation you need to not take a mid-afternoon nap and get highlighter all over your pillow, then go forth with your bad self and try this duo!
Long-lasting Products for Festival Season
Now that going out is a thing again, we need products that can carry us from day to night. We don’t have time to touch up our makeup throughout the day, honey! We’re tired! NikkieTutorials suggests the Sisley Double Tenseur Primer to get your look completely sweat-proof. According to her, you want your primer to be a little bit sticky so anything that goes on top of it stays put. I can get down with that! See the other products she recommends for summer in the video below.
NikkieTutorials Chooses Bright Shadows for Summer
I know it seems obvious to use brighter colors in the summer, but hear me out. We’re all coming out of quarantine a little worse for wear, and we could use something to brighten our spirits. The Color Range Shadow palette has gorgeous colors that can be blended to perfection and will stand out no matter where you wear it. Plus, each shadow has a cute name like lemon drop and party drip. We love!
Get Splashy With Waterproof Makeup
I know some girls who are total glam queens, NikkieTutorials is one! Some people want to look fabulous even when they’re playing around in the water. It is summer after all, and we have to stay cool somehow. If you need a foundation that stands the test of time, pick up the Tom Ford Waterproof foundation. If you pat it on with a makeup sponge like Nikkie does, you can’t go wrong! Check out her full video on waterproof eyeshadow, eyeliner, and mascara that won’t fade.
