Startin To Feel Like Summer: Photo of the Day



Ttoday I felt like wearing something colorful and I was feeling lazy and wasn't in the mood for the full face effect.  This is what I came up with.


Today I felt like putting something colorful on and I didn't feel like heavy makeup so this is the look I came up with. Summer gets me excited because it reminds me of easy makeup and loads of accessories and lots of wonderful colors. I often refer to them as vacation colors such as corals, lush greens like palm trees and rich browns like the bark on a tree and blues with hits of turquoise in it just like the beaches in Sardinia. Oh, and I better not forget the color purple which reminds me of the thousands of dendrobium orchids all along the roadside which I remember vividly from when I vacationed on Hawaii.

If you haven't already guessed I am a very visual and tactile person and because of this summer for me is an explosion of sight and smells that keep me going through the long, bleak and dreary winter months. When I see the sun and feel the warm breeze on my skin I can't help but be in a good mood and walk around with a half smile. In Canada our summer season is short lived and we make the best of it.

On the face:

MAC spf 50

MAC Oil Free Face & Body Foundation

MAC Springsheen Sheertone Blush

Brown liner and mascara with Malt eyeshadow in the crease and Espresso brown in outer corner mixed with Blackberry shadow.

MAC Fluidline in black in my waterline

Lingering Eyebrow pencil on my eyebrows (which are almost non-existant)

Dior Lip Glow with a clear gloss on top

Hope you are all having a sunny day. Thanks for stopping by. xx
