New From Barielle: High Steppin’!

I absolutely LOVE these new shades by Barielle! I’m totally in love with the shade Belly Dance. I’ve worn it twice since I got it!

For summer 2010, boogie down with new disco-inspired nail polishes in the High Steppin’ collection from Shades by Barielle. Six metallic hues and Barielle’s signature healthy “3-free” formulation make hands and feet dance with style.

Flashing back to the 70’s, get groovy with Electric Boogie—an inky metallic blue with teal glitter; shake it up with Belly Dance—a nude taupe with shimmer; party until dawn with Night Moves—a sparkling metallic silver; turn it around with Passion Pirouette—a grape metallic purple; sway to the style with Slow Motion—a light metallic lavender and let loose with Freestyle—a cool metallic mint with silver glitter.

Add a little sparkle to your summer!

I was just sent some samples of some great new products for summer and wanted to share my favorites.

My favorite from the new line is the Naked Beauty high lights cream cheek color. Its a great double duty product giving my cheekbones a little lift and the cream blush smooths on giving my cheeks the perfect flushed pink look.

Be summer-ready with Smashbox’s new Naked Beauty Summer Collection ($20-39)! From shimmering nudes to soft pinks, the collection is packed with nearly-naked shades for eyes, lips and cheeks. This summer, expose your natural beauty and create an ethereal, lit-from-within glow with these Smashbox essentials.

So Rodial Brazilian Tan has been a standout from me recent product reviews. Its one of those products you love so much you are scarping at the bottom of the sample to get every last drop. I just apply before my makeup it has a great tropical coconut scent and absorbs quickly. Then in a few hours my face has a great healthy glow I apply it every morning to my face, neck, chest and arms. It gives you a great healthy glow that makes everything look better and smells delicious!

Can’t make it in for a spray tan? Rodial Skincare allows you to get one from the comfort of your very own home! The Brazilian Tan line ($49) gets you the glow you want as well as nourishes your skin. Choose Brazilian Tan Light or Dark for an instant coat of color. You can also build up to that summer shade with Brazilian Tan Daily, which increases gradually.

A great and truly affordable primer, Sally Hansed Luminizing Face Primer gives you that little extra glow. I even wear it alone when I am in a rush and just need a little help with my skin. You will love how quickly it absorbs and how great your skin looks.

Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy’s Luminizing Face Primer ($9.95) will help you to shine and will emphasize your summer tan – faux or real! It smoothes and refines skin texture while hiding pores and fine lines. Micronized pearl creates a healthy glow when worn alone or as a smooth base under makeup. Skin-smoothing cork oak and olive leaf extracts nourish skin and boost radiance while vitamin E provides antioxidant protection.


Summer makeup tips from Carmindy

I am a huge fan of What Not to Wear and love the Carmindy line for Sally Hansen, check out Carmindy’s tips for looking beautiful all summer long. You can  stock up on her budget friendly line at your local drugstore.

As the weather heats up, it’s time to lighten up your makeup routine with luminous, natural formulas that let your skin shine. “Who needs heavy makeup when you have a pretty, natural flush?” says Carmindy, the expert behind Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy. “Summer is the time to emphasize fresh, healthy skin—not hide behind makeup. With the right products, you can highlight your summer glow and let your true beauty shine through.”

Carmindy’s number one rule for a fresh summer complexion?

“NEVER go tanning to get a summer glow. Layer on the sunscreen every day and you’ll still get a hint of healthy color—the perfect summer accessory. If you want more radiance, sweep on a little shimmery golden bronzer to accentuate your glow.”

Product recommendation: Try Sun Glow Powder Bronzer, a customizable color trio that creates a complexion-enhancing, flattering sun-kissed glow. Micronized pigments offer a clean, natural, sun-free bronzed effect—no tanning necessary.

To complement a radiant complexion, go for a light, sheer lip.

“Summer is the season to play with floral shades like roses and pinks,” says Carmindy. “Put away dark shades like wines and burgundies and opt for light, fresh lip colors instead. Sweet pink shades complement a radiant complexion—plus they make teeth look whiter.”

Carmindy recommends Ultra Soothing Lip Tint, a balm-like gel with a hint of tint and healthy shine. Try the tint in Cranberry or Guava for a sheer wash of delicate pink.

If you want to try a brighter lip color, balance the boldness with a more natural eye.

“One of my foolproof summer tricks is pairing a bright coral lipstick and subtle wash of eye shadow,” says Carmindy. “It instantly perks up your complexion, no matter what your skin tone, and it’s a really light, fresh summer look.”

To get the look, try Color Comfort Lip Color in Sunbeam with the color-coordinated shades in the Amethyst, Metallic, Ocean or Quartz Instant Definition Eye Shadow Palettes.
