Summer has definitely hit our little island and most countries around the world!
Just for a moment move away from the Worlds commotion about the World Cup ( although the players are FIT) and let yourself go into a world of Vibrant Colours of Summer make up.
It is very easy to stick to a routine which is based on blacks and browns , they are safe colours after all and most of the time there is no time to experiment. However sometimes in our everyday pattern you need to stop a bit and realise that the simple things in life are important too , so why not try something new when you get 10 minutes of free time. All you need is to check out your make up collection, pick that eye liner you liked the colour of at the store but never used, get that lipstick that was too bright and just roll back the time and try something you wouldn’t have normally! Believe me i find new Technics when I least expect it.
This summer I tried some marine colours amongst other things. These are my favourites and how I use them.
Nivea Pearly Shine – This is not Rocket Science. Lip Balm for summer is a MUST everywhere at any time any place! I love this Nivea Pearly Shine cause it gives your lips a very light pink tinge and does the job to nourish the lips.
Elf Make-up Mist & Set – DISCOVERY OF THE CENTURY! Why didn’t I have this in my Life, WHY?? This product is soooooo refreshing in the hot months and it actually keeps your make up in order for a whole day. I usually apply it when I have a day of errands or a night out so whatever consistency of make up you have, once you are done with all the make up, get the spray and apply it all around the face. The scent is so lovely too made of Aloe, Green Tea and Cucumber it’s a perfect combination for summer!
Daniel Sandler Aqua Velvet – I had mentioned this in my “Glamour Edition” ( Link here: http://bit.ly/1jDwhmu ) Such an easy breezy application. The colour is the right shade of blue not too dark at all. I usually apply it with a light base eye shadow and then let it do the talking!
H&M Lip Pen ” Love that Pink” – This pink is so pretty on the lips, really understated but gives a natural look. All I do for this is apply some translucent powder on my lips and just apply the Lip Pen like a normal lipstick.
WJCon 108 Opal – I just purchased this Green Shimmer eye liner recently it has a soft shimmer and it is lovely if you want a light dewy look with a twist. A different way to apply this is again with a light eye-shadow base , apply it like a normal eye-liner, then with your finger smudge it ever so slightly to give a more natural look.
NYX Lipstick Peach Bellini – Peach/Orange lippy which gives that pop of colour and lights up your face instantly! Applied with a translucent base and topped up a couple of times, it will last long and makes your lips scream SUMMER!
NYX Lip Liner 852 Pumpkin – Used in conjunction with the lippy, these lip liners glide so well and they can also be used when applying a nude base lipstick.
Swatches are Below in the following order: Daniel Sandler Liner, WJCon Liner, H&M Lip Pen, NYX Lipstick and NYX Lip Liner.
Have a Lovely Summer and Keep that bottle of water with you All The Time!!
