Shine this summer with a pale palette and berry-stained pout. Sara Domi, local makeup artist and national cosmetic director for Toni & Guy, created this simple but sultry look by using a highlighting powder (all over face, upper lid, and collar bone), golden cream shadow, pink cream blush, and a berry-tinted lip color with a dab of clear gloss. Pull hair back or to the side in a tousled bun or chic chignon to complete the carefree look.
