[Guest Post] Fresh-faced Easy Summery Makeup Look Tutorial

Hey everyone! I'm still on vacay and still super busy (today is Trace's birthday) so I don't have much time to sit down and write a post but I've got a very super special lady to cover for me today!

She's one of my blog-crushes and I'm so stoked that she's offered to guest post! She's absolutely gorgeous and she always looks flawless so take notes on this tutorial!! I've already got my notebook open!

P.S. She's also giving away $25 to Sephora in the BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAY that ends tomorrow! Hurry up and enter!!!

Aloha, FrikkenDuckieFriends!!

Jessica/Duckie invited me to guest post while she is away with epic journeys in Hawaii and the Mainland US. (Thanks so much, Jessica! xo)

My name is Mae, and I'm a fellow Pacific Island style blogger like our girl Jessica here! I'm based in Hawaii Kai (East Honolulu), Oahu, Hawaii. You can find me writing intermittently at I'm super lucky to live in paradise, but as my website name suggests, "Happily Ever Thereafter" is only half the story. 'thereafterish.' is all about my style, beauty, finding happiness, and documenting this huge adventure that is my Hawaii Life--its ups, downs and in betweens.

Although we live in the "Kingdom of Eternal Summer" here in Hawaii, where it can feel summery year round, it can get pretty hot during spring and summer. I'm all about being easy and lighter on the makeup during the warmer months. I want to look, healthy, flushed and radiant, like I just got back from an amazing beach trip (which is likely, since I live in Hawaii!), but I don't want to feel like I'm wearing a ton of gunk on my face. This is the look I've been sporting for the last month or so since the mercury and barometer started rising.

This is how I achieved this glowy, chic and easy summer makeup look:

I'm hoping you found this tutorial super easy. Although it looks like a lot of products, it's super light on the skin and makes you look fresh-faced, glowing, and healthy--perfect for spring and summer! And, best of all, it actually doesn't take too long to do!
