Best Summer Makeup Shades

The heat is finally here! It’s time to celebrate sunshine with a cosmetic overhaul of your current beauty attitude, incorporating must have seasonal colors will help you to creatively rework your entire summer look!

From ‘barely there’ shimmering shades that enhance rather than redefine, to bright and glossy candy colored lips, our trends for 2014 are straight from the runway. You will find that a few high fashion editorial themes actually translate very well into an every day routine.

Eyes are dazzling, yet soft and neutral, with longwearing formulas that stay put through sweaty summer days:

Our new Starlette Gel Eye Stain has delicate shimmering pearls suspended in an innovative gel texture base. The richly pigmented formula glides on evenly for a wash of sheer-to-buildable, water-resistant color and sparkle. Try Mink Dream, a great easy to wear shade that suits every skin type.

Using our Crème Gel Eyeliner as shadow provides a smooth, transfer resistant     finish that lasts. Rich compounds lock in pigments and set it to a supple, no-flake finish, resulting in a clean, vibrant look. Flamenco, a metallic mocha, is the summer perfect bronze.

Lips are bright, glossy and bold, with high shine or pearlescent shimmer for impact:

Begin with Priscilla Thinstick (a bright pink base), the moisture rich waterproof formula ensures vivid color with a semi matte finish. Top with a layer of Cherros Original Perfect Shine Lip Gloss, a pinky-cherry shine. It glides over lips evenly depositing color and sparkle.

Vincent's Wet Pearl Lipstick colors the lips with glossy pearl reflective shine, and contains Aloe Vera and Vitamin E to soften and nourish lip tissue. Layer Rhubarb Spice Wet Pearl with a top coating of Perfect Shine Lip Gloss in Sexty, which will give you a naturally pink pout with superstar-quality sheen every time.

A pop of color that won’t budge is the surest way to give your cheeks a summery flush:

Our Lip and Cheek Gel Stain in My Sunshine will provide a warm peachy glow. Top with a sweep across the apple of your cheeks with Dew Drop Radiant Blush in Sandalwood, a dusty coral shade. Created by an innovative powder pressing technique, the dew drops release their tint and texture providing a kiss of light color to the skin.

Lip and Cheek Gel Stain in Baby Boo is a fresh rosy pink shade, and color carries double the staying power with Dew Drop Radiant Blush on top in Misty Blossom.

Play up a summer tan with bronzer, but be sure that you match up the shade properly to create the most natural, healthy, luminous glow:

La Riviera Sun Bronzer is inspired by a trade-secret professional makeup technique; several layered shades are pressed into a unique color dispersion pattern to provide versatility. La Riviera Sun Bronzers are both longwearing and color true. Copper Kiss is great for deeper     skin tones, and Cassata works well for for light to medium skin tones.
