Summer is my favorite time of year and the weekends are the best, aren't they? Whether I am heading to the beach, going out for a fun date night with my husband or simply visiting with friends at a barbecue, I take the time to incorporate the great summer trends into my look.
This year, I'm all about mixing a bit of denim into my wardrobe, adding on a big necklace and spicing it up with some wedge heels. For makeup, I love a fun, flirty look with color, but I still make sure my skin looks its glowing best. On my nails, I'm loving bright pops of color and nail art, which is a must this summer. COVERGIRL has the products that help me create my summer beauty look and it has me owning the weekends and feeling confident. It's nothing short of magical when a few great makeup products can make me feel my best.
For a flirty look on my eyes, I have been obsessed with the new COVERGIRL Flamed Out Shadow Pencils, Flamed Out Shadow Pots, Ink It! By Perfect Point Plus Gel Eyeliner and pull it all together with Flamed Out Mascara.
Flamed Out Shadow Pencils offer great creamy color in bold shades. These double duty pencils are easy to apply and have a cooling feel to them; they actually impart a cooling feeling as I glide it over my eye. These are great for both shadow and liner.
Flamed Out Shadow Pots are perfectly sized pots filled with highly pigmented colors, which are perfect to keep on top of all summer trends. They are silky soft, apply with ease, and stay in place all day.
Ink It! By Perfect Point Plus Gel Eyeliner is a self-sharpening, long-lasting, gel eyeliner that comes in summers hottest shades. It applies like a dream and lasts all day long with no smudging.
Flamed Out Mascara is my summer mascara of choice. This mascara is different in a big way, with a big brush that has a little cushion to it. The brush helps evenly coat lashes and deposit the mascara pigment all over lashes. By doing this, it helps to add a lot more volume to lashes, and helps them curl up and out at the same time. This comes in a regular version that is perfect for everyday or a water resistant formula that is perfect for a day at the pool or beach.
My summer fun, flirty look was created with Flamed Out Shadow Pencil in Crystal Flame, Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Sapphire Flare, Ink It! Eyeliner in Aquamarine Ink, topped with Flamed Out Mascara in Black Blaze.
For my skin, I want a natural, softly bronzed look, with gorgeous glowing skin. To get this look I love, I have been depending on COVERGIRL Clean Whipped Creme Foundation and Clean Glow Blush & Bronzer.
Clean Whipped Creme Foundation is the type of foundation I need in the summer. It is light and airy feeling so it feels like I am not wearing makeup. Even with the light, whipped texture, this offers a nice medium coverage that makes my skin look perfect. I apply this with a damp sponge to get the glowing makeup look I love.
Clean Glow Blush & Bronzer provides natural, lightweight color with it's three varying shades of blush and bronzer. I like to apply the darkest shade to the contour of my cheekbone and then take a fluffy blush brush and swirl the colors together and apply as I normally apply a blush. The look is perfect, each and every time.
As I mentioned above, on my nails I love a pop of bright and fun summer color. I actually put my nails to the ultimate challenge when I traveled to Chicago last weekend. I painted them first thing on Thursday morning, and they were still looking great five days later. I used COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Brilliant Glosstinis and they definitely outlasted my expectations. The base color was Pink Lady which is a bright bubble gum pink. I wore this on both my tips and toes. I created a little DIY nail art with a few of the other bright Glosstinis shades. I used Sangria, Orange Oasis, Lemon Drop and Appletini to create the polka dots. I dipped a rounded tipped bobbi pin into the polish and gently touched the tip to my nails. It made for a pretty easy dot without any fuss.
