A bold lip makes a bold statement, and we love someone that demands attention. When you walk into a room all eyes should be on you. A bold lip does just that.

Glitter Eyeliner


Make your eyes sparkle this summer. Bring the night sky to your everyday look. Line your eyes with something that glitters. You can use a liquid eyeliner that has some shine to it, a shimmery eyeshadow, or go the extra mile and use makeup adhesive glue to line your eyes with stars! When it comes to expressing yourself creatively, there aren’t any rules!

Block Eyeshadow

Smokey eyeshadow has taken a twist. Smokey eyes are out. Big, strong blocks of color are now what’s in! Using a pigmented color, create an outline of the shape you would like to rock. Use an adhesive makeup tape to create sharp lines or patterns. Layer on the color and strut the sidewalk like it is your personal catwalk!

Dewy Skin

Matte skin is a thing of the past. Toss the powders and the blotting paper. This summer is all about rocking that shine! There are many ways to achieve the dewy look. If you’re blessed with naturally dewy skin, don’t cover it up with too much powder. Making sure that your skin is fully moisturized will help bring some glow to your skin. Some of our favorite tricks to dewy skin are:

  • Highlight the high points of your face using a highlighter or shimmery eyeshadow.
  • Apply lip gloss to your eyelids.
  • Highlight your face using coconut oil.

Mismatched Nails

Sweat Proof Makeup!

This summer we’re all going to be getting stuff done! Being active means running the risk of sweating your makeup off. We can’t have that.
