Summer Make Up Tutorial: Glowing Beauty

I was inspired by warm & sunny weather we've been enjoying here in Italy in the past days (ooops, now that I've said that, it started raining!!!) to create a summer appropriate make up look.
Something natural, quick to acheive, yet a bit glowing & shimmery :)

Here is the result:

About my hair: In this video, I'm also giving you a short "hair update", talking about my big dark roots showing, because I haven't been at the hairdresser's for 2 months...joking that now I have the "ombre" hair trend going on...
Well, NEW UPDATE: I filmed this video past week, before I went to have my highlights & cut done at the hairdresser's salon! I'm satisfied with the result and can be calm for other two months or so...but still, I wish my hair would just grow naturally blonde, lol ;)

The pics down bellow were taken just after my visit to the hairdresser's, in the same afternoon:
