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.

Happy Booster™ Glow & Mood Boosting Baked Bronzer

This baked formula with a gold pearlescent center that adds a nice highlight to the bronze can be used wet or ry depending on the effect you desire. I use it dry with a fluffy brush for a natural glow or wet with a sponge for a more dramatic golden bronze. It is also infused with the Physician's Formula happy boost blend that is made up of special plant extracts that are shown to promote a feeling of happiness. I can sure use that from time to time.

How-To-Wear™ Bronzer

This bronzer contains two perfectly coordinated shades to bronze and contour perfectly. In the back of the handy box is a contoured brush along with complete instructions (built right in so you never forget) showing how to apply perfectly. I really like this little box of bronze.

Bronze Booster Glow-Boosting Shimmer Veil

This is a golden bronze shimmer powder that you spray on. It is beautiful for creating a soft glow on the tops of cheekbones or for use on the shoulders and décolletage. I'll be spraying it on my daughter and all of her friends for prom tonight. I spray and then blend with a fluffy powder brush. Everyone who uses this glow-boosting powder loves it.

These little bronzed hearts in shades of bronze and gold give off a customized, pearly glow on my skin.

I love this bronzer and it is perfect for everyday. It is gentle on the skin and contains sunscreen, which is always a plus. The formula of this bronzer is very soft and silky, and it appears airbrushed on the skin. It even blurs fine lines and wrinkles, which is always a great thing.
