Summer Lovin': Must-Have Make-up Products
1) Prescriptives *magic Liquid Powder
This translucent powder is a make-up innovation. Formulated with a high concentration of water, it works like a cooling mist to refresh the skin. If only they taught this kind of chemistry in LS1A.
2) Make Up Forever Glitters in Multicolored Pink
Press on this fine pink glitter with a stiff brush over eyeshadow primer like Lucy Hale, to sparkle on those warm summer nights.
3) Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense in Rock Sand
After lugging about forty pounds of make-up home in my carry-on, I’m always wary to buy just another eyeshadow. However, after hearing about this waterproof, creaseproof, multidimensional shadow by Giorgio Armani, I just had to have it. The unique texture makes it a make-up innovation, different from any other eyeshadow on the market. Rock Sand is the most perfectly wearable color that looks natural and pretty for summer.
4) Tokidoki Gelato Lip Balm Stain in Donutella
Even though I am a die-hard Burt’s Bees Lip Balm fan, I am absolutely in love with this adorable lip balm. I’m usually not into fruity scents, but the melon flavor is irresistible. This balm offers a sheer pop of glossy color; the perfect addition to my five-minute summer make-up routine. And most importantly, the packaging makes me smile every time I apply.
5) MAC Nail Lacquer in Little Girl Type
This lavender nail polish just looks so cool and fresh for summer. A great way to change up my usual baby pink manicure, this updated neutral will be on my nails all summer long.
6) OPI Nail Polish in Silver Shatter
OPI’s Silver Shatter is seriously awesome. I’m always into the newest beauty trends and this shatter nail polish is nothing like I’ve ever seen. And this means a lot coming from the girl who has about a hundred nail polishes stored in her bathroom medicine cabinet, organized by blues, purples, pinks, oranges, yellows, reds, neons, you name it. Just apply this sparking topper over your favorite color (MAC’s lavender lacquer, perhaps?) and it will crack instantly as it dries. SO. COOL.
