Summer is thisclose to being here. Everywhere you go, bright colors, maxi dresses, sandals and shorts are screaming for you to buy them. Beauty counters are displaying their summer collections full of gorgeous bronze, peach, pink and gold shades. And lets be honest, you're probably upping your work outs at the gym and watching your carb-intake (ice creams not a carb right?). Regardless as to how you're preparing yourself for those summer days and summer nights, you have to admit you don't want to look tooooo made up but rather glowing and fresh-faced.
A key color trend for summer beauty products is peach. On the lips, cheeks and eyes, peachy colors give you a healthful glow with the right amount of color and compliment your glorious tan (or your sun-protected skin if you don't tan!). When buying a peach colored beauty product, keep in mind, while peach is universally flattering, you want whatever it is you buy, whether its a lip color, cheek stain or highlighter, to compliment the rest of your makeup. Always shop with a plan/look in mind (trust me on this, I am a makeup junkie after all). Pair peach lips/cheeks with soft vanilla or bronzy eye shadows with a touch of mascara and an all-over highlighter with a bit of bronzer for a perfect summer look.
Here are some of my favorite peachy products for summer:
Tarte LipSurgence Natural Lip Stain in Joy/Peaceful
Lancome Juicy Tube in Simmer
Nars Blush in Orgasm/Sex Appeal
Nars Illuminator in Orgasm
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Nectar
**all products can be found at Sephora**
