Freshen up your cosmetics bag with bright new colors for the summer season. We've seen marigold yellows and chartreuses and limes in our nail polish palettes, and a with little skill, those same colors can be used with makeup to create a truly unique and beautiful look. Here are our tips for this light and summery look: 1. Shiney Pink Lips: Drawing together all these bright colors is a classic, cool pink lip gloss. Almost any shade of pink will do, but our very favorite for the job is DuWop's Pink Shimmer Lip Venom. The plump lips will draw attention to your traditional feminine curves in offset of your non-traditional color scheme. 2. Yellow / Lime Eyes: As strange as it may sound, especially girls with dark hair can beautifully sport these bright summer colors. Apply lightly all over lid and under eyebrows, adding sparkly white at the inside corner of your eye. We suggest Bed Head's Cyberoptics Eyeshadow in Lime. 3. Pink Cheeks: Set aside your orange-y bronzer for this colorful look. Choose a classic pink to match your gloss! The Orglamix Pure Mineral Blush has the perfect consistency and shimmer for this light and airy summery pink. We think the Pink Pepper color would be perfect. 4. Flawless Complexion: To keep attention on the vibrant colors, a flawless complexion is absolutely necessary for a carefree summer. Find a light-reflecting, moisture rich tinted moisturizer that will even out your complexion without the added weight of thick foundation. Our very favorite tinted moisturizer is Urban Apothecary's Supernatural Mineral Sheer Tint. It's soft weight and beautiful luminosity is perfect for summer.
