My Summer Colors

With summer officially here, I've decided to map out the colors that I would be using throughout the season. A timely MAC sale got me buying more Huggable Glass, a lipgloss whose formula I really like. I wore Mega Hug a lot over the winter. Sweet Persuasion carried me through spring and now I have Never Say Never, a dark coral, and Such A Sweetheart, a light coral. Both will be perfect for summer.

I also got two lipsticks, Out For Passion and Red Necessity, from the Huggable Lipcolour line. It's been a very long time since I've bought MAC lipstick. Many years back, I had an obsession with Viva Glam V and VI and wore them constantly, until I realized that they were making my lips so incredibly dry. So here's hoping my new MAC lippies won't be giving me that problem.

There's a whole load of eyeshadow that I haven't really had a chance to properly play with but I'm sticking with neutrals for the season. I quite enjoy using the NARS dual-intensity eyeshadows I got from their summer collection: the rich hazelnut of Tan Lines and seashell pink of Topless, which I pair with two older singles, the soft rose pink Kari and shimmering topaz Himalia. I use them all dry for a sheerer wash of color.

A warm, light pink or pale rose blush is my go-to shade. When I really can't decide what to put on, I bring out my old favorite Chanel Tweed Rose. Other shades I reach for often are MAC Spellbinder, LE from the Faerie Whispers collection last holiday, Benefit Dandelion and NARS Impassioned (which I talked about here).

I can't wait to play around with the Charlotte Tilbury palette that I finally managed to get my hands on. It looks to be a fair girl's palette of colors and it will definitely go with the lippies I've picked out for summer.
