Sultry Bronze You've
got daytime bronze mastered, now spice up the sultry heat for after hours. Create a smooth believable bronze by blending Instant Vacation Bronzing Gel all
over the face. It will leave your face sun-kissed and sunset-ready. Eyes:
Create sultry bronze eyes by first rimming eyes with Eyemarker
Color On Line in Cocoa. Retrace the line with I-Mark Eye Shadow in Java (a rich
brown), blending up towards the crease. Add a light touch of I-Mark Eye Shadow
in Tiki above the crease for a golden touch, and finish with I-Mark Eye Shadow
in Biscotti on the browbone for a shimmery beige highlight. Lashes:
Apply two coats of Lash Splash Hook Up Waterproof Mascara in Blue-Black, the
blackest, sultriest shade around. Cheeks: Use Instant Vacation
Bronzing Powder on the apple of the cheek and slightly underneath the cheekbone
for a contoured look. Lips: Golden, rosy-bronze lips are hot. Use
Tea Pots Fresh Steeped Lip Gloss in Fruited Green Tea. Glaze generously onto
lips. Summer Tip: Re-powdering oily skin during the day may lead to
excess build-up, especially when mixed with oil and sweat. Instead, carry our
Cheat Sheet Oil-Trapping Micro Films or The Matter The Better Liquid Mattifier
to soak up oily shine while treating your skin.
fabulous isn't easy when the hot sun threatens a potential makeup meltdown. Beat
the heat and accompanying sweat by going for low-maintenance looks. Long-lasting tanned skin: Start with the Instant Vacation Tanning Kit for
tanned skin. Tanned skin doesn't need as much makeup as its paler version, and
the less makeup you have on, the less likely it can wear off. Apply self-tanner
to freshly-exfoliated skin every 4-5 days. Long-lasting Lashes:
Don't fear the mascara river, just use Lash Splash Waterproof Mascara in Black -
it's waterproof, pool-proof, ocean-proof ... even cry-proof!
Long-Lasting Cheeks: TInt, Tint in Petal is great for summer thanks to its
oil-free, lightweight gel properties. And since it's a stain, you'll get
long-lasting color that won't fade. Blend a small bit onto cheeks for a
refreshing, super-natural glow. Long-lasting lips: Create your own
customized shade of see-through pink with Glossblossom Ripening Lip Tint. It
goes on clear and shiny, then turns into a juicy pink shade on your lips that
lasts all day. Simply reapply if you desire more intensity. Summer Tip:
When using self-tanner, keep your fingers together as you apply and blend.
This way, you'll be able to control any potential streaks and make for a more
evenly distributed product --- leaving you with a smooth, buttery tan!
prints are a hot trend. Summer is about color, brightness and experimenting. Add
a flirtatious, sexy touch with these island-girl shades.
Eyes: Rim upper and lower lashlines with Eyemarker Color On Line in Alumina
to give you a silvery base. Apply Alumina on upper eyelid and in crease area and
blend as you would with regular eye shadow. Be sure to get the inner corners of
the eyes. Set the color with a light dusting of I-Mark Eye Shadow in Glitterati.
Finish off this eye-opening look with I-Mark Eye Shadow in Cloud 9 on the
browbone area for a shimmering white highlight. Add a mysterious flair
with an ultra-clean, super-thin line of black liquid eyeliner with On The Edge
Hook Up Eyeliner in Cleo. Meow! Finish eyes with Lash Splash Waterproof
Mascara in Blue-Black for sultry lashes top and bottom. Cheeks: For
flushed cheeks, summer is the perfect time to use a sheer cream blush like
Duotint in Double Rose. It's more resistant to water and sweat than a
traditional powder blush. Rub a small amount onto cheeks. Lips:
Line lips with Lip Mark-It in Plummy. Then use the Retractable Lip Brush to
spread on a generous layer of Glass Slicker in Aurora, a luminous lavender.
Summer Tip: Switch to a lighter moisturizer during the hotter
days--you'll find that your skin won't need as much moisture during the summer
months. Our gel-based Things You Dew is a great alternative to your regular
moisture and it works even better as a makeup base!
your face and look cool in sophisticated, minimal makeup with just enough polish
to exude class and confidence. Face: Start with C-Thru-U Sheer Beautifying Tint in your shade,
mixing in a touch of Mark 4 (a glow shade) to add sheer coverage and dewiness,
while protecting with SPF 15. The shimmer from the Mark 4 Glow will highlight
your cheekbones and enhance your bone structure for a stunning summer sheen.
Long-lasting cheeks: Summer is the perfect time to use a sheer cream
blush like Duotint in Double Rose. Stroke on the refreshment: In
the center of your lids, apply I-Sheer in Glacee for an icy white shimmer that
will last through the most oppressive heat--up to 8 hours! Lips:
Add a layer of Glosstastic See Through Lip Shine in Crystal Clear for pure
shine. Dab a bit onto lips for a modern, juicy, just-bitten look. Eyes:
Brush on two coats of Scanda-Lash Hook Up Mascara in Brownout for a more
summery, natural alternative to black. Summer Tip: Spritz your face
with Health Drink Face Mist several times a day or when you start to feel the
heat. The superfine micro-droplets will diffuse any smears or meltdowns and help
you instantly cool down.
