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.

    Okay, I've NEVER posted anything about my friends before, so bear with me. I've known that me and my BFF have the same crush since we met in 5th grade. But it always seems that my BFF is closer to him than I'll ever be. They went to 2 school dances together while I'm still in the friend zone with my crush. I pretend to not care but I really do care. I've never been in this situation before and don't know what to do about it. Should I tell my BFF how I feel or wait this whole thing out? Or even forget my crush being my crush and find a new crush? HELP!!!!!   :love :confused

    Maybe that's the only line that needs to be said? You don't have to write down a whole paragraph explaining about how you feel. Sometimes, one word or one sentence can be enough. :p but I don't know. Maybe I have no clue what I'm talking about. :p

    You'll have to remember, your parents love you, with that being said. If you feel like you can talk to them and they're reasonable, go ahead. But if you feel like waiting it's up to you. I think your family will support you, because they do love you. Maybe they'll be upset at first, but they'll come around, everyone does eventually. Is there anyone in your family that knows, like a cousin? Maybe you can ask for their opinion if you should tell your parents, and family. However, it's up to you. and remember, your parents care and love you.

    You doesnt have to come out to your family until your ready and until they is ready too.  If you blurt it out it could be the shock.  You says that you think your Mums side of the family will be more supportive.  Has you got an Aunty or Uncle what you could discuss this with?  An adult member of your family what is most likely supportive  could probably give the best advises on how to tell your family and when and how and prepares you for how they will react. Good luck mate and takes your time :angel

    I think my mothers side of the family would be fine with it. It's my dad's side I'm most concerned about. My dad says some dreadfully terrible remarks about homosexual people. I think I'm not gunna tell him at all. Ever...  Either way. Thanks for the advice!
