So today I thought I would do a post on my top picks for this summer! A lot of my faves are on the higher end but I still have some at the drugstore end as well.
So for eyes:
I like to use my new Nars eyeshadow duo in Dogon which is part of their Summer 2011 collection. The lighter shade is an amazing shade which is different then anything else I own. its described a light brown shade with a green irdesence. Now I find it a little more taupy especially with all the different colors peaking through (pinky-purply-blue shimmer). This eyeshadow is so hard to describe its just something you have to see . Many say it is like mac's club eyeshadow if that is any help? I like to layer it on top of lighter or darker eyeshadows or use it alone to achieve whatever look im going for. The darker shade is also insanely pigmented.
Once I have my shadow sweeped on I like to use a brown eyeliner usually whisky by Urban Decay or just a any old black liquid lineron my upper lash line. To open my eyes I use Revlon's Grow Luscious Mascara.
Now for the face I usually use Nars Sheer Glow foundation in Santa Fe and to warm up my skin I use Hoola by Benefit, which is a light brown matte shade bronzer. I use it for an extra glow and contouring. Over it I apply my shimmer bricks by Bobbie Brown, I use this all over as a highlighter (forgot to add a pic) and I love it. Now moving onto blush I love using Nars Orgasm blush for a nice sheer pop of color on my cheeks I also reach for my other Nars blush in Madly when I want a more toned down look.
Now for lips I like to use my chanel gloss in extrait, I basically dab it onto my lips and just rub it in with my fingers to get a nice your lips look better color and then apply any clear gloss over it.
And then your done! A nice refreshing summer look and definitely one of my faves!
