Own the Weekends with COVERGIRL.

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.

COVERGIRL Summer Looks

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.

Pretty looks!
I like the name Flamed Out and looooove the mascara after reading your review I had to try it. I want those pencil/liners now too. Do those last long?
I almost want to try the blue colors. They look really great on you and it makes your eye look so blue. I've always been one for blue liner.
I plan on owning the weekends for the rest of the summer. I'm going for masters degree and have to buckle down in a few weeks so the weekends are all mine! Rockin' makeup is important!!
I love the thought of making the weekends your own. Great idea!
Really like your hair!
I guess I need to try that polish because I can't get my nail polish to last more than 3 days before it starts chipping at the edges. I am impressed with your nail art skills because I am miserable not matter how many kits I try. I like to use the nail art stickers on my baby fingers for some fun but I don't even bother with the painting a design anymore.
Loni - Thanks! I appreciate the comment.
Kellie - Flamed Out is a pretty "hot" name, isn't it? I am so glad that you gave the Flamed Out Mascara a try. Happy to hear that you are a fan!
Heather - I use blue liner a lot too and it was pretty bold of me to try and pull of a blue eye look, but I'm glad I did. I really like it!
Carlie - Best of luck with your masters! Own those weekends and rock that makeup until then!
Marissa - Glad you agree :)
Ryan - Thanks so much for the comment and the compliment! I really appreciate it.
Tiff - oh no! Finding the right polish, along with a great base and top is KEY! Give the COVERGIRL Nail Gloss polishes a try. They really do "outlast" many of the other polishes I have tried. You can't beat the summer colored Glossitinis for the size and price. I sort of wish all polishes would come in smaller sizes like these, because I don't think I have ever used the same polish more than a few times - ever!
Like the nail look!
I saw the multicolored bronzer/blush and bought it. I almost asked you if you tried it, but I bought it on a whim and it is perfect!
Wow, covergirl has been around forever, I guess I will have to take a closer look at their products especially the outlast stay brilliant polish.
I seriously had the best weekend and I remembered this writing so I had to come back and tell you. I will have you know that I rocked a white sun dress, denim vest with a big necklace and natural sky high wedges. I bought the Covergirl bronzer and two of the Ink liners too. Thanks for this!
Hi, Teri, I'm new to this site and have been checking out your looks most of the evening. I LOVED your recent "what's in your purse" winter article. I live in a snowy area as well and can't wait to give a few of your recommendations a try!

Anyway, I hope it is ok that this question isn't cosmetic related, but I was wondering what necklace you were wearing in the flirty blue eye pic. I love multi-layer necklaces and that one looks like it would go with a lot of my looks. Thanks in advance, I would love to know, but understand if you don't get back to older posts.
