Big, bold lips
McCulloch says to focus on gorgeous lips for this spring and summer. He recommends Dolce&Gabbana’s Classic Cream Lipstick. “There is a shade for every complexion and mood – including nude, coral, pink, red and orange,” says the makeup artist. “The texture is delightfully creamy, yet blendable and easy to control. You’re never dripping in product, which is great for that summer-time heat.”
For a chic and easy lip, McCulloch says to tap on lipstick with the pinky finger. “It creates this gorgeous stained lip that is the perfect finish to a summer look.”

Keep it light and bright in the south florida heat
McCulloch recommends using a light foundation in the summer for a sheer and glowing look that isn’t cakey. He says to finish the complexion with a dusting of pressed powder. Then apply shimmer on the eyelid in Champagne, gold, beige or bronze for instant brightening glamour. “Be sure to use a color close to your complexion, in the corner of the eye for the bright, lightening look,” McCulloch says.

The finishing touch
McCulloch says he uses the Dolce&Gabbana Perfection Veil Pressed Powder on every woman he works with. “It translates so well to different skin tones and is the quintessential finishing touch,” he says. He recommends using a flat foundation brush to dust a thin veil of the powder on the nose and chin for a translucent and radiant natural glow.
