Summer is officially here! It’s a good time to revisit the makeup trends for spring/summer 2017.

As the temperature gets higher and the day longer, I start to feel like playing with makeup a bit more and have some colorful fun. Might seems to late for some but, really, who thinks of beach outfits in november, except fashion houses? 

Here are my favorite makeup looks for spring/summer 2017, hope you find them as inspiring as I do.

Elie Saab

“Young, cool, colorful, shiny – and more than anything, really fun.” says makeup artist Tom Pecheux who created this look for Elie Saab.

I made a board with my research and helpful links. I plan to update as the seasons change so keep an eye on this for news and face charts.

I know from experience how hard it is to buy makeup online but all those trials and errors can be put to good use to find the right one. I want to share with you a very handy online tool to help match your foundation shade across cosmetic brands.

Does it work? It did for me!

Starting with my known shades…

  • Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation – 52 Vanilla / Vanille
  • Make Up For Ever HD Foundation – 120 Soft Sand
  • Vichy Dermablend Corrective Foundation – 25 Nude
  • Yves Rocher Flawless Finish Fluid Foundation / Teint fluide zéro défaut – Beige 200 Light complexion

The search returned over 30 matches from different brands, some I have even tried before and it was surprisingly accurate.

Few days ago I published a brand new Skillshare class and I’m excited to share it with you.

I’ve been working on this class for the last 2 month and I’m so pleased to see it finally published. I want to show you how you can make artwork with your makeup and draw a beautiful face chart.

Learn to make a Basic Face Chart today!

You can use them to illustrate a makeup look you love or document a look you created successfully and you could even frame them to decorate your walls! The most important is to have fun and be proud of the art that you can create.

Some of the things you will learn are:

  • What is a face chart
  • What products can be used on a face chart
  • How to choose colors
  • How to apply makeup to paper
  • Pro tips for any makeup application

You don’t need special paper to get started, any paper will do, just put some makeup on it!

I will teach you all the tips and tricks I learned from years of makeup artistry and drawing combined!
With this new knowledge I’m hoping you will feel more confident to design and illustrate any makeup looks you want.

Here’s a sample video from the class to get you in the mood for making your own Paper Lady.

You can join the class right here.

Follow my lead to have fun with your makeup and discover new expressive ways to create artwork!


It’s a habit of mine to draw the things I love although that eyeshadow palette is an imaginative color mix based on a product design that got discontinued. This is a quick and messy sketch in ink and watercolors, but the paper is not designed to hold water and that gives the illustration a more naive and rudimentary look to it.
