Facing Up to Summer 2011

While Summer is in full swing, here are tips to get what’s HOT this Summer!

Complexion Perfection: While beautiful skin has always been “in”, the difference this year is you’ll want to look naturally flawless, not matte, powdery or made up. How best to achieve this look depends on your skin type. For normal skin, go with a tinted moisturizer. For oily/combination skin, use a liquid-to-powder foundation or mousse formula. For dry skin, try a tinted moisture cream or liquid foundation. All skin types can benefit from applying a light reflective highlighter or luminizer to cheekbones to achieve a healthy glow.

Bold Brows!  Strong, full, and well groomed continues to be the way to go!

Bold Brows







Bright Eyes:  Bold eyeliner—whether brightly colored or textured (glittery, pearly or shiny with a satin finish)—will be huge, particularly on the upper lashline. Think classic Audrey Hepburn with a modern twist! Eyelashes continue to be dramatic, though dramatic lash extensions will be relegated to special occasions only. Apply mascara to your heart’s content on the upper lashline, while leaving the lower lashline either mascara free or with minimal mascara for a very clean, eye-opening effect.

Bright Eyes







Natural Cheeks: Cream blushes will be very popular, keeping in line with a dewy, flawless complexion. Powders will be popular too, but only in light, natural-glow shades.

Neutral Lip







All or Nothing Lips! Go for lip glosses in both nude and ultra bright hues, but be sure to use only very sheer shades. The big difference this year is that glosses will be more conditioning, long-wearing and will have a more sophisticated shimmer (high definition). On the flip side, we will also see a return to classic red lipstick.
