Wondering what you need to put on your Summer beauty shopping list? Let me be your helper.
When it comes to nails, everyone is wearing bright, “look at me”, colors. Stars like Christina Aguilera have been seen spreading the summer spirit- but you can be right in their footsteps!
Try Essie nail polish in Pretty Edgy, $8, Orly Foil FX in Rage, $7.50, or if you want to go really high quality (and you`re willing to spend some extra cash) try CND Shellac. It is a salon-only treatment, so it comes up to about $50, after being cured under a UV lamp, and enjoy a no chip, no-dent mani-pedi until you take it off.
Sun comes with Summer and that means long days in the sun- Yay!- but it also means bringing out the sun screen. To protect your skin the best you can, try the following recommended sun screens.
Nitespa, Here comes the sunscreen, $39, lotion, gives a soft, natural glow while protecting your skin.
Adaptasun Body milk, $57- Not your normal sun screen. Made to put on a few days in advance, since it “trains” your skin to fortify itself at a cellular level, fighting free-radical damage and stimulating the production and distribution of melanin to give a long-lasting tan.
Dermalogica Solar Defense Wipes SPF 15, $22
Protecting your skin is important. But after you make sure it`s safe, you want to decorate. For eyeshadow try either natural or bright and bold- in-between can come off kind of blah at times. Try these to help you find a look.
Make-Up Forever Aqua Cream $22- This stuff can be used on cheeks, lips, and eyes! A bit of a change feel-wise for people who have never used cream-form make-up.
Belmacz Blitz Gold Leaf eye shadow $38- Includes 2 leaves of 24 karat gold!!! Can also be used as body shimmer! Warning: A little bit goes a long way!
Since most of the above are bold it`s up to you if you want your lips to stand out or let the rest be the center of attention. These looks below will work either way!
Fresh Sugar Plum Tinted Lip SPF 15- $22.50 A very light plum tint, not dark or a lipstick, which it`s looks give off.
Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss- $14- I love products like this! The moisturizer of a balm and shine of a gloss!
Jouer Tint in Amaryllis- $20- Powder for cheeks and lips
Tarte LipSurgence Natural lip Stain $24- Shine that stays and isn`t sticky! Colors range from Natural to Bold.
Well, there you go! Have beautiful Summer! Also check out my Fictional writing at:
