2006 Summer Make-Up Preview
Summer cosmetics sound good enough to eat! With names like Cupcake Pout blush and Strawberry Slush lip gloss, this season's make-up trends are guaranteed to make you look, feel and smell sweet-a-licious!
FaceWearing foundation and concealer in the heat is like wearing socks to the beach. It's stifling - so swap that heavy stuff for, well, nothing at all! All you need in the summer is a moisturizer with SPF. Worried about shine? Don't be. Just reach for oil-blotting papers or powder that target pesky, unwanted shine by absorbing excess oil.
EyesDress your peepers in glamorous gold eyeshadow! Shades of gold, copper and bronze give you a laidback, sunkissed glow that can be topped off with waterproof mascara. A great one to try is DuWop Lash Lacquer. It's double-ended - one side side delivers a lengthening mascara base, while the other is a clear topcoat that gives you a glossy, water-resistant finish!
CheeksIf there's one product you don't want to leave home without, it's Jelly Pong Pong Jelly Flush. The name may be silly, but this juicy jelly gives your cheeks an amazing, just-pinched glow! It comes in shades like Melon Martini and Grape Colada - yum yum!
LipsSummer demands sheer, shimmery lips so thank goodness for Cargo Lip Gloss! Named after far-off cities like Bora Bora, Machu Picchu and Turramurra, these twin packs come in pretty shades of pinks, plums, berries and browns. Some even have glitter! The upside is they're not at all sticky. The downside is they have a high melt-factor in really hot weather, so throw it in the cooler if you plan to hang in the sun all day.
