Easy Summer Makeup with Sephora & Smashbox Pro Artist Jess Luther

July 10, 2017

When it comes to this season's make-up, we want easy and long-lasting. We don't want to spend hours getting ready, instead, we'd rather be outside enjoying this Saskatchewan summer. So we enlisted the help of Smashbox Pro Artist Jess Luther, to help us create a go-to look that is easy to achieve and can take you from day to night with a simple lip colour change. Check out her must-have summer products below and catch the full video here.

CC: "Jess, What are you go-to summer products?"

Jess: "My summertime make-up essentials are budge-proof products! Selecting the right long wear lip and eye products will have you touching up less and give you more time to sip on sangria.

 My go-to long-wear products are from Smashbox Cosmetics. Their products are tested in the Flashbox Lighting Lab at Smashbox Studios L.A. What this means: their shades are perfected for colour consistency throughout a number of lighting scenarios. Ensuring that you look flawless from the office to a sunset patio party!"


Jess' summertime product faves:


Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer

  • Sweat and humidity resistant formula that prevents fading, creasing and smudges for 24 hours. This is an everyday product for me! Oily eye-lids: rejoice!


Smashbox Always On Gel Liner

  • This weightless gel liner comes in a pencil format for quick application. With super-saturated colour it stays put for over 24 hours, even in water. Perfect for those pool days or long summer nights. I smudged this on the outer corner of my lash line to add depth and the appearance of elongated eyes for a soft sultry look.


Smashbox X-Rated Mascara

  • Ultimate drama in a smudge and flake free formula for a look that never fades. This brush is designed with three layers of fibers to hold the perfect amount of product, while isolating and extending each lash.


Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick in “Out Loud”

  • These pigmented liquid lipsticks provide 8 hour wear that is as light as a feather. No feathering=no touch ups! Infused with Primer Oil complex, this formula won’t dry out your lips, so you’re ready to go for round two tomorrow! I specifically love this colour “Out Loud” for summer. Rich, rusty orange, perfectly plays up a bronze glow and compliments the hazy colours of a summer sunset. The precision tip applicator makes it easy to apply in a jiffy!


Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water

  • Primer, setting spray, and refreshing mist that I always have with me on those hot summer days. Electrolytes hydrate the skin all day while diamond powder imparts a soft diffused glow for that ethereal skin finish that is so on trend right now!

Other products used for this look: 1. Camera Ready CC Cream 2. Studio Skin Concealer 4. Highlighter - Try the new Spotlight Highlighting Palette in Pearl.

This Cover Shot/Golden Hour shadow palette has all the bronzed neutrals you will need this summer & it's only $35 

Wear your favourite nude gloss during the day and switch to a rich coloured long-wear for a sultry evening look!
