Wet Hair Look with Revlon


This month's video is all about the ultimate "I'm lazy and it's so hot out" look.
Hair slicked back in a tight bun - I love to use those "spin pin" types of bobbi pins for that - a smidgeon of liner to define the eyes, a lightweight base and a slight rosy stain on the lips.



For my face I used Revlon PhotoReady Mousse Makeup. Shade 030 Nude was a perfect match for me (for reference, I am about a MAC NC25-30 at the moment).



The texture of this is very light and airy so it's suitable for the warmer months. A full pump dispenses a lot of product since it has a whipped texture so start light and build up if needed.
If you have normal/dry skin you can get away without powdering it throughout the day. The coverage is light, akin to a tinted moisturizer.


On the eyes I used a black Revlon Luxurious Color Smoky Crayon. This can be used all over the lid as a base for a dark smoky eye or as a liner (it has a little sharpener at the other end so you can keep the tip nice and sharp to use as a liner). I am using it as a liner for this look since in the summer time I like some definition to the lashline and a subtle smudged line does the trick.


For lips, the Revlon ColorStay Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm is nice for the summer because the stain part (the shade I use in the video is called Desire and it's a natural slightly rosy tint) lasts all day while the balm end keeps the lips hydrated. My lips are naturally quite pigmented so I'm interested in how the darker shades of these lip stains hold up! Desire lasted a good 4 hours on the lips and I never felt any dryness.



What's your low key summer look? What would you pair with a "wet" hairstyle?

  3. The foundation looks really interesting and the colour match is perfect. I'm also an NC25/30 and most drugstore foundations are too pink or neutral for me. Too bad I can't get Revlon here. Will have to check it out when I travel. xx

  9. Look is super pretty and very natural. No blush tho? I'm surprised that Revlon didn't send you any of their new cream blushes... I can't wait to try 'em.

  11. I love it, ur skin looks gorgeous! I have the same foundation and it never looks this good! I know what u mean by it dispensing way too much product in one pump! I use my fingers to apply though, but I'm going to try it with a brush like u did here to see if its any better! Great Video I enjoyed it! :)
