2005 Summer Make-Up Preview
Last year's make-up involved a lot of pink blush and lip gloss, but this season, it's all about being a natural beauty. Check out the goods that'll keep you looking fab this summer!
Do the DewySummery skin isn't about caked-on make-up - who wants to be wearing layers and layers of foundation and powder while sunning at the beach? Instead, go for dewy skin with Jergens Natural Glow. Unlike a lot of self-tanners that skyrocket your complexion from pale to freakishly orange, Jergens gives you a gradual boost of luminous color while moisturizing your skin with olive oil, avocado oil and oatmeal extract. Unfortunately, it's sold out everywhere, but you can add your name to the waiting list at Jergens.
Get CheekyWhen you want to look gorgeous - but not lots-of-make-up gorgeous - just add some peach! It's the perfect shade for lightly tanned skin and looks great on all skin tones. We've picked out Cheeky Cake by Pop Beauty in Beach Beauti. It's a perfectly paired sheer bronzer and matching blusher that'll give any complexion an ultra-flushed glow. So turn up the heat by applying blush to the apples of your cheeks and bronzer all over your face. Is it just us or is it getting hot in here?
The Eyes Have ItTurquoise is summer's "it" color! Shimmering shades with names like Blue Surf, Oasis Blue and Miss Fiji are flattering peepers everywhere, so be sure to include it in your eyeshadow palette. We particularly like Nars Duo Eyeshadow in South Pacific - it looks good on anyone and really makes your eyes pop! Finish off with a coat of waterproof mascara so it doesn't run while you're taking a dip in the ocean.
Barely There With dramatically done-up eyes taking center stage, lips take on a nude spin. Wearing next to nothing on lips is actually the best complement to this summer's sequins and embellished fabrics. With lips so bare, it's important to keep them looking their finest, so exfoliate and moisturize them with a lip conditioner and apply Pout Plump. It's just like DuWop Lip Venom, which gives your lips that bee-stung look, but the Pout gloss doesn't sting as much. Wear it alone for a slick, smooth pout or layer it over a natural lip color.
