What's in for Summer.....

Ladies from the 80's....


I'm seeing a lot of blue and turquoise eyeshadow, eye pencils, AND nail polish this year. Although, its all about how you wear the color. She is wearing the color without making it about the color.

Laura Mercier just came out with a new color for the spring called "Marina" and they are pairing it up with a deep bronze. Also, Essie nail polish just came out with their "Resort Collection" which includes two shades of blue.

This shows Laura Mercier's "Sun Drenched" Collection (Marina is the blue color that is showing in that palette-which is available for purchase individually as well.

Essie's Resort Collection

Also on the nails....

An opaque grayish taupe on the nails has been a popular color in the fall and is also being seen this summer. (Above, in the resort collection, is a light grey).

Big Lashes

Eyelash extensions have definitely been popular. Everyone wants their lashes to be longer, and a great way to do that without having to pile on mascara is through lash extensions. At glo, we use a company called lavish lashes. They are attached individually with adhesive that won't ruin your lashes. They last typically about 3 weeks, and you don't need to wear mascara because they come black and curled already. ;)

Bronzed Skin

The best thing about bronzed skin? You can go light on the rest of your makeup. I love bronzed skin paired with a pink lip gloss and mascara.

Also, in this picture Kate has on a silver shimmery eyeshadow. When using shimmering eye shadows, its important to enhance your skin as well. Use shimmer to highlight to tops of your cheekbones to give you a rested, dewy effect.

These are a few things I have seen for the summer. I hope to post more soon. Also, someone had asked a while ago where they could get a clarisonic brush. I can either send it to you (free shipping) :) or you can get it online or at Dillard's.


  1. I have been wanting to buy a clarisonic brush too! Could you email me the price,please? :) Also, would you be willing to include any specific products that you referenced in this post? You know, for those that are a little uneducated in the make-up dept., like myself. :)

  2. If you ever get close to Montreal, let me know!

    I'd love a makeover! :)
