“Those Suuuummer Niiiiiiiiiiiightsssss!”
I was really hoping that one of you would go totally Grease Lightnin‘ with this prompt. And I think Miranda rocked the bad-a Sandy look. Like, Sandy in leather pants singing “We go together like dip da-dip da-dip doo-wop da doo-bee doo”.
With Summer coming to a close, we felt like we had to pay homage to all of those summer nights that you stayed out too late. I know I did. This prompt totally made me reminisce about those teenage summers–Tank tops, flip flops, and 1 or 2 kisses from whichever flame I was chasing. Teenage summers were a blast, weren’t they?
When I was working up this look, I knew I wanted skin that was glowy. I wanted to really capture that youthfulness. And to me, summer means a nice pinky-berry lip, so when I found a Bite Beauty duo at Sephora, I knew I had to snag it for the prompt.
