Memorial Day Makeup: Ashley Benson’s Peachy Summer Glow

Packing your makeup bag for Memorial Day weekend? Need some inspiration? Skindinavia has discovered the most perfect, care-free look for Memorial Day weekend makeup.

When Ashley Benson showed up at the ceremony to kick off 7-Eleven’s Summer Slurpee Days, we thought to ourselves, this is it! It’s one of those Eureka moments when you strike gold with the simplest of things. The Pretty Little Liars star showed off a natural, sun-kissed glow. Her peach cheeks, neutral lip and barely-there bronze eye makeup made for a go-to summer makeup look.

To get Ashley’s perfect summer glow start by spraying Skindinavia Makeup Finishing Spray across your entire face after you’ve applied moisturizer. As usual, cover up any problem areas with concealer. Next apply a light powder that matches the color of your skin. The powder is replacing the foundation for a lighter, more airy effect. Sparingly apply a light bronzer like Seophora’s Too Faced Sun Bunny Natural Bronzing highlighter.

The key element to Ashley Benson’s makeup look here is her peachy perfect cheekbones. It adds a slightly sunburnt, just got home from the beach, just kissed a boy…blush…that is so pretty for summer. Some great peach blush options are:

  • MAC Peaches — classic peach with subtle brown undertones
  • Make Up For Ever #14 — soft peach
  • NARS Sex Appeal – pale peach
  • MAC Melba — dirty peach-brown with a matte finish
  • Tom Ford Beauty Cheek Color Powder Blush
  • NARS Pressed Powder in Desert

Celebrity makeup artist Mai Quynh dished on her exact eye makeup used:

“…I started on the eyes. I used Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in BR709 on her lid, from her lash line to the crease. I brushed on the bronze color from YSL Ombres 5 Lumieres Eye Shadow Palette in #7. Then I smudged the dark brown liner from the palette along her top and bottom lash lines. I lined the inner rims of her eyes in Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Eye Pencil in 20 Espresso.”
