This summer, the "no make-up" look is in! Of course were still going to put on make-up, because were girls and that's what we just do :) BUT, there are a few items we can live without for our everyday looks. The best thing to do is make your skin look good for starters! Your foundation: try to go with a lighter coverage, tinted moisturizer or oil-free foundation of some sort, so your face doesn't get cakey throughout the day because of the heat. Always put on a primer! Carry around oil-blotting tissues in your bag! Conceal and brighten your under-eyes and shape your eyebrows nicely (always keep them clean because a no make-up look doesn't like bushy eyebrows...kills the look ;). Load up the wonderful mascara - preferably Loreal Voluminous - my favorite mascara! Pop on a bright blush such as Nars Orgasm or Mac Pinch'o'Peach to add some color to your face. You can and should use a little bit of bronzer as well to give your face a sun-kissed look. Lastly! If you want to play it up a bit - a bright color lipstick! This has been my secret weapon for the summer. Lacquer on a coral, hot pink, orange, or bright red! It really just puts the whole look together. When you have bright lips, it compliments a nude - no eyeshadow or eye liner - look very well! Enjoy!
