Summer Fun – young, fresh and colourful!

For this Couleur Caramel video, we wanted to keep the look fun and colourful for summer time! At 16, our model will have her summer to herself and long days and evenings with her friends. This look could easily be transitioned for music festivals / concerts with liquid liner, lashes and the obvious compulsory glitter! But we kept the look simpler to just focus on youthful beauty and radiance, splashed with vibrancy for eyes and lips. Strong contouring is out, thank heavens for that, so it is finally acceptable again by the masses to embrace the true beauty of your natural skin, which at Couleur Caramel, we are all about. Fresh skin, light bronzing, groomed brows and lashes and all shades of pink in between! Follow the link for our YouTube Video
