MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Summer 2013 Collection

Aqua Rouge - $24.00
This long-wear lip color is perfect for the summer months. You can wear the highly-pigmented liquid lip color alone or top it with the clear gloss. I like to wear it with the gloss, because I am all about a little glossy lip. The look is not only beautiful, the look is smudge-proof, non-transferable and even kiss-proof. This beauty lasts. It comes in five new vibrant shades.

  • Fuschia #16
  • Pomegranate Pink #19
  • Baby Pink #20
  • Bright Coral #17
  • Coral #18

Aqua Lip - $19.00
This lip pencil is perfect for prepping your lips and is the perfect complement to Aqua Rouge. Using evaporating silicone emollients that allow the pigment to glide on the skin and set, this creamy matter lip color can be used to fill in the lips as a base, or outline them. IT comes in two new shades.

  • Pomegranate Pink #19C
  • Baby Pink #20C

Aqua Cream - $23.00
For intense color that lasts through even the hottest days, Aqua Cream is it. This cream based eye color offers a beautiful crease-free, smudge-proof color. Evaporating oils and a special polymer work together to set the color pigments on the skin and lock moisture out. For summer, there are three new pretty shades.

  • Pearly Green Lagoon #52
  • Pearly Pastel Green #53
  • Pearly Mauve #54

Aqua Eyes - $19.00
If you worry about your eyeliner smudging in the heat, you don't have to any longer if you use this creamy pencil. These eyeliners do not run or smudge. It stays put, yet it glides on for easy application. The formula actually sets on the eyelid and the pigments adhere to the skin for long-lasting color. There are two new must have shades for summer.

  • Matte Brown #25L
  • Pearly Green Lagoon #52L

Laura Mercier Summer Nudes Lip Glacés.

Laura Mercier went nude this summer with her new Summer Nudes collection. It is a beautiful and refreshing change from many of the seasons brights. As a more natural looking makeup girl myself, this really works for me.

Laura Mercier's Summer Nudes collection pairs chic neutral shades for both the lips and nails. The collection features a variety of nude Lip Glacés and Nail Lacquers on trend for the season, offering high-shine colour with a flawless finish. Of course, I am smitten with the Lip Glacés.

The non-sticky formula of the Lip Lip Glacé provides long-lasting colour and a beautiful glossy shine. It applies evenly without feathering or bleeding. The formula actually nourishes and protects the lips. I love the creamy vanilla flavor. It' subtle, but there and yummy.

The Summer Nudes Lip Lip Glacé shades:

  • Pout
  • Pink Diamond
  • Bare Baby
  • Bare Blush
  • Bare Beige
  • Quartz

I have Bare Beige and Bare Blush (pictured below). Bare Beige actually looks a bit bronze in the tube, but it is really a beige shade on the lips, with just a slight amount of shimmer to it. It is one of those shimmers only seen if the light hits it right. Bare Blush is a perfect nude shade, but on the mauve side of nude. It looks very natural and beautiful on my lips. I plan to pick up Pink Diamond too.

Makeup Wars: Favorite Summer Eye Look.

Summer is here and I am lightening up when it comes to certain things about my makeup. I switch out foundation for tinted moisturizer and wear mainly lip gloss. But for my eyes, it's all about bonze and golds to go with my favorite bronzed summer look. This year, my favorite summer eye look includes an unexpected twist - green liner.

My look is simple and easy and only requires one palette -- the MAC Bare My Soul palette from this years Temperature Rising Collection.

To create the look, I start by lining my eyes with the shade When In Rio, which is the green color. It turns a bit copper colored as it is blended in, and it has really become a favorite shade of mine this year. I next apply Bare My Soul, the frosted gold shade, on my browbone and the very inner corner of my eye. On my lid, I use Romantico which is a gorgeous taupe color with a hint of bronze to it. I finish off the look with Friendly, the deep chocolate bronze shade, and blend that into my crease.

I blend the look to soften it up, apply mascara and am done.
