California Girl: Spring/Summer Makeup Tutorial


The California Girl look is all about classic American glamour. Perfect for summer, this makeup look can be worn during the day or into the night, depending on the smokyness of the eye or the redness of the lips.


  1. Firstly, sweep the Laura Mercier Radiance Primer over the skin, followed by Benefit Fake Up Concealer on any imperfections and EstAi??e Lauder Double Wear Light Foundation for an absolutely flawless finish.
  2. For the eyes blend the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Color in Amethyst with Bobbi Brown Shimmer Wash Shadow in Snow. Create beautifully bold lashes with EstAi??e Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Waterproof Mascara.
  3. Lightly dust the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick on the tops of the cheeks for a touch of colour and a beautiful glow, and sweep Nars The Multiple in G Spot under the cheekbones for a contoured effect.
  4. Finish off the California Girl look with a lick of Givenchy Le Rouge lipstick in Rose Dentelle.

I'm Alice, Al or, if you are the five year old me, Ice (yes, I did want to be a member of Kris Kross, and yes, I did wear my jeans backwards). Womenswear Editor at House of Fraser Online, I've grown out of backwards clothes and instead chose to invest my money in vintage sportswear and bomber jackets, while inking my body with unnecessary tattoos and rapping along to every word of The Streets - Original Pirate Material. My proudest moments were seeing a shoot I styled in my favourite magazine and getting a three-dart-finish in a game of darts. Oh, and Bart Simpson was my first crush.
