Eye Make-Up Must Haves For Summer 2011!

Alana Mitchell, Licensed Esthetician, Day Spa Owner

Less Is Better!!

In the summer, instead of caking on the eye make-up, remember that less is more! Stick to simple liquid eyeliner and forget the eye shadow completely. Wearing only liquid eyeliner and mascara will you give you a sexy, simple look! My favorite is the Glo Liquid Eyeliner, I use it all the time, its super easy to use, and its only 16.50, click here to see it.

Embrace The Arch!

Keep the natural arch of your eyebrows and only fill them in if you need to. Hold them in place with a brow gel. I found a neat trick that Vanessa Hudgens does in one of the magazines I get. She adds a tiny bit of hairspray onto a toothbrush then brushes her brows down. This really works! Any hairspray will do, many people ask me what I use, and use anything with Moroccan oil as a base. I love the agadir and dermorganic products.

Gorgeous Glow

Summer is all about the beach and bronze skin. Give your skin the appearance of sun-tanned skin by faking the damage with an ample amount of bronzer. Bronzer can be used anywhere the sun can see your skin. If you’re seeking the ultimate summertime shimmer, start with a sunless tanner and then move on the bronzer. My must have bronzer for this summer is by La Bella Donna, and its called the vision of mineral lights. The ingredients are the purest I have found for a mineral makeup, which means its great for your skin, and they give you a variety of colors, so it can work for a ton of different skin tones.

Moisturize With A Tint!

Cheeks Of Pink

When sticking to a natural summer look, your bare skin can be brightened with a light pink blush. Simply keep face foundation and eye make up to a minimum and apply an ample amount of pink blush to your cheeks with a blush brush! This is a super easy and perfect look for summer. I always look to La Bella Donna as well for my blushes, but I also love the Glominerals line of blush products.

Be Bold!

When looking for that “wow” effect, keep your face make up and eyes bare. Instead, focus on your lips by adding bright color. Hot pinks and reds will give you a definite “Awe” factor this summer. Bright Colors are in. Youngblood has some awesome brighter lipstick colors that keep up with the times, mineral makeup that is stylish at an affordable price, click here to see it.
