Fresh and Easy summer makeup look – Orange and Gold! 

Orange and Gold is my favorite combo specially when it comes to summer makeup. Today I am going to show you a super easy summery makeup look and the list of products I used.

Barry M strobe cream in iced bronze as primer.

MAKEUP FOREVER Waterblend Foundation for its super dewy finish.


ABH Moonchild Glowkit to fix my foundation.

Mist & Fix setting spray to set everything.
