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 Dewy

Summery 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 Cheeky

When 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 It

Turquoise 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.

    I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...

    I don't know. It honestly could be that she likes you, or she is just a really good friend.
