Steal Phoebe Tonkin’s Fresh Summer Beauty Look

Phoebe Tonkin – whadda babe!

With doe-like eyes, thick yet feathery lashes and super kissable coral lips – could she look any hotter?!

I think this look is fabulous to rip off this coming summer. It offers the luminous dewy skin that we’re always chasing, effortless eyes that won’t smudge under intense heat, and perky fun lips to play into summer’s upbeat feel.

If you want Phoebe’s smouldering look, read on!

After applying a light creamy foundation, I like MAC Prep & Prime Beauty Balm for great coverage, take a smidgen of Tom Fords Skin Illuminator in Fire Lust. Here's a quick swatch I did for you guys:

It has just the right amount of shimmer to make your skin seem fresh and awake without crossing the border to disco-divaville. 

Take a makeup sponge and dab onto the highest planes of your face (cheekbones, ridge of your nose and arch of your eyebrows.) Alternatively, you could always mix a little into your BB cream for an all over glow like Phoebe’s.

Now take Inika’s Peach Fetish eye shadow (which I love!) and swipe over the entirety of your eyelid. Make sure to take a blending brush and get rid of any nasty harsh lines. My secret trick now is to take a large fluffy makeup brush, one that you would use on your cheeks, and brush this same hue onto the apples of your cheeks, but very subtly of course. This will make your face look naturally flushed and oh so pretty! 

Phoebe’s eyes are mesmerising. I think the key here, though, is less is more. What you do need is a hard working mascara that doesn’t clump but creates thick feathery lashes. What magic wand will achieve this? I’ve been very impressed with Too Faced Size Queen Mascara.

It comes in a pretty pink canister and the wand has evenly placed bristles, so they are able to separate each lash and coat it in the right amount of formula. Repeat on the upper and lower lashes. Thank me later for sharing this fab product!

Now you want a plump coral toned pout. When sifting through me almost worryingly large collection of lipsticks I was super happy to re-find Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipstick in Kiss Me Coral.

Its an exact match to Phoebe's and lasts quite a while on your lips without the need to be retouched. It also nourishes as you wear it.  

 Lastly straighten your hair (I prefer my GHD ceramic flat iron) and create a deep side part. Flick your hair behind your ears and take Bamboo’s Luminous Shine Mist and spritz through your locks.

 Take a flat panel brush and comb yours strands – take in your natural shine. This mist also contains gooseberry so it feeds your hair with antioxidants as you wear it – super clever! And you're done!

What do you guys think of Phoebe’s look? Love or hate?
