Redpoint Airbrush Effects Blushwhip.

Blush is a tricky thing in the Summer. Well, I guess that makeup as a whole can be tricky in the Summer. Especially powder products. I don't want to look too matte or toned and perfect faced. I rather a bit of my faux tan show through, accented with some pretty Summer colors. Peachy bronzed cheeks look so pretty - but not dirty or over kill with the sparkle. Like a glow. This is what I get from this wonderful whipped blush.

Redpoint Airbrush Effects Blushwhip is almost as it says. It is a gel feeling type of cream, that feels almost like a light and fluffy whipped texture when spreading out over cheeks. I love to smoothe this out over my cheeks right after a tinted moisturizer. My cheeks look natural, glowy, with just a hint of color. It is buildable, so if you want a bit more color, add on some bronzer over the Blushwhip, and then blend just a dab or two spread back on the apples of the cheeks. Be careful if you use it this way though, as sometimes a creamy product over a powder does not blend very well. But if you only use a bit of the blushwhip and do it quickly, while using a blending sponge, it can be really beautiful. A beautiful Summer cheek.

I am loving the Glow Peachy-Pink shade, but this blush also comes in Vida Rosy-Pink for more cool complexions. This sells for $28 in it's beautiful jar and metallic red cap over at Redpoint Beauty

MAC Prep + Prime Microfine Lip Refinisher.

I love lip exfoliating products, and in the Summer when the lips are exposed to the heat, sun and wind, it is almost a must for me. I am such a fan of Tarte's fRxtion with it's duo sided tube and wonderful taste, so I was thrilled to have discovered this one from MAC. This is from the MAC Summer Future Earth Collection, and it is their Prep + Prime Microfine Lip Refinisher.

On one side, there is a natural exfoliator that is made up from botanically derived ingredients, while the other side of the stick is a superb lip conditioner, with the yummy MAC Vanilla flavor, that helps to moisturize, nourish and soothe lips.

As with anything else, it is very important to wear a sunscreen on your lips when spending a lot of time outdoors, especially when using an exfoliating product. I wish that the lip conditioner side contained one, but it does not, so be sure to use one - okay?

Prep + Prime is $14.50 at MAC.
