An Adventure into Summertime Makeup

I have two favorite looks of the moment for summertime: A nice pop of translucent color for us pale girls and, to beat the heat, an icy cool look-- which is nice for making the eyes stand out and giving you a more bronzed look.

I've also been on a search (for the past 2 years) for the perfect, muted pink pout and have finally found the lipstick that delivers that look: Cargo PlantLove lipstick in Lindsay. Check out Cargo's PlantLove website to see the color...and plant a flower or two while you're there! It's also a lipstick with benefits- the lipstick tube is compostable (it's made entirely of corn), you can plant the box that it comes in for a wildflower garden, and $2 from every sale is donated to St. Jude's Children Hospital. They also have a great coral color, which is in for summer, called Evangeline.

With summer rapidly approaching, I'm all about getting that coveted rosy glow. My two favorite cheek boosters of the moment: Stila's Beach-y Keen and LORAC's Cheekstamp in Hibiscus (which is super easy to apply, too). If you're going for more of a bronzed rosy look, just layer a light dusting of Stila's Bronzer (in Shade 1) on top. Perfect look for the beach!

Not many people talk about it, but those who know about it will tell you that BeneFit's She Laq is the BEST way to waterproof your eyeliner, mascara, eyeshadow, and even lipstick while at the beach. It stays put for hours and wears comfortably.

That's all for now...Keep checking back because I will be posting some of my favorite summertime dresses next.
