I’ve noticed lately that I’ve been gravitating toward a select few products in my cosmetics bag. As soon as I get a bit of color on my face I feel like I need less makeup…or summer just makes me a wee bit lazy! At the London Drugs Beauty event Lo and I attended a few weeks ago, the makeup artist from Revlon encouraged me to go with a fresher, cleaner face….just eyeliner, mascara and some gloss. I’m a makeup junkie, so that was a pretty tall order, but I decided to embrace it and try it. Ok, I may use one or two more products, but I’ve cut back dramatically. And hey, summer is more casual and relaxed, right?
A little highlighter under your brow and in the corner of your eyes really can wake them up. A volumizing mascara that isn’t clumpy is key….and I like a brush that’s fine enough to reach those hard to reach lashes.
For daytime, I like to use a gloss. It’s a bit softer. For going out, I prefer a lipstick as the color is more saturated and tends to stay put. These lip shades are almost identical. Rock a coral lip with a great pair of sunnies..these won’t break the bank… and you really are good to go!
Why not give a cleaner, simpler face a try? I can say, it’s quite freeing!
