In Oklahoma, we don’t get a break from the heat with months of 90-100+ humid weather. Weather like this means I need shine control and natural looks for summer with staying power. I don’t know about you, but I am constantly looking for the next best affordable product. The Walmart makeup section is a great starting point for me while I am out doing our everyday shopping anyways!
My night out on the town look often is smokey eyes and bold red lips. It is a glamourous look that as a mom in a house of boys I don’t get to do as often as I would like. Sometimes a full face of makeup (as shown above on the right) can be too much. Not too mention that pairing a face full of makeup with summer heat can cause quite an unflattering mess as well!As much as I love the glam makeup trend, I need natural looks for summer. I am testing out the Go Nude Summer makeup trend with Rimmel products from the Walmart makeup section. The Go Nude makeup trend is not about not wearing makeup; however, it is about enhancing your natural beauty! Rimmel Makeup is a great affordable makeup option.

Without makeup, I have some serious shine issues courtesy of hormones and hot, humid weather so my main goal is to achieve matte natural looks for summer that help eliminate the shine without clogging my pores.
Foundation is the key to a great natural look. Rimmel Clean Finish Matte Foundation is:
- Walmart Exclusive!
- Available in 16 shades
- 100% Poreless look
- With Vitamins A & E
Achieving natural looks for summer to me means getting a believable glow on my fair complexion. I do not leave the house without at least 30+ spf protection so I fake my color with makeup. The real key to believable summer glow is to focus on the outline of your face with bronzer.
Rimmel Natural Bronzer contains natural minerals! Take a brush with Rimmel Natural Bronzer and brush bronzer directly below each ear to your jaw. Then, around jaw from temple to temple. After the outline is done, focus on lightly putting Rimmel Natural Bronzer on cheekbones, nose, and chin. You don’t want natural looks for summer to be dramatically darker than you usually are just a nice glow to your skin. I used Glam’ Eyes Quad Eyeshadows in Romantic Cool (shade 1) to lightly highlight my cheekbones. As you will notice below, I really don’t look that much different, but my skintone looks even and my shine is under control.
I used shade 4 from Romantic Cool for my crease and shade 1 for everything else. Shade 2 is a grey with a hint of purple that can be used as an accent near my inner eyelid to make my eyes really pop. The key is to blend so it all looks natural.
My lips have a nice natural rosiness to them so I generally keep them rosy with just lip balm or gloss. The trick to nice realistic color on lips is to put it on with your finger for a good color that doesn’t mask the natural look of your lips. To achieve the go nude summer makeup trend for my lips, I tried a few different ways. First I used Rimmel Makeup ScandalEyes kohl eye liner in nude. Of course, with my pale skin this runway summer makeup trend made me feel like I looked dead.
