Summer 05- Ir Brasileno Belleza! (go Brazilian Beauty!)

This summer it?s all about being a Brazilian Bronzed Beauty. So unless you are a native Latino supermodel like Giselle Bunchen or Enrique is planning to whisk you off to Rio for the weekend, its time to look to the make up counters, grab the false tan and go with the glow for Summer 05!

Shimmering Eyes
Illuminating and shimmering eye colours sparkle in metallic bronzes, burnt caramels and golden honeys with cream eye shadows being a big feature this season. A pale gold eyewash is subtle enough to wear to the office with a coat of jet black waterproof mascara and a light terracotta pressed powder. Try to keep it light and subtle with the glow in daytime or you could end up looking more like Hawaiian Barbie than Brazilian Babe!

Try out…
Elizabeth Arden – Colour Intrigue Eye Shadow Quad ? Beach, Sun, Bronze, Party
The shadows in this quad have wonderful texture. The powder is finely milled and feels silky, although do not have a heavy pigment. All colours work wonderfully together and it has a subtle glow/shine that stays throughout the day. Like a lot of Elizabeth Arden compact products, the mirror on the inner lid is large enough to apply your makeup in front of.
Clarins Peek ? An Eye Tale
This is a little pack of 4 eye shadows also perfect for the travelling chick that doesn?t want to lug around her makeup bag that weighs 3kgs or more! Need to carry a little selection of brushes to use for this lovely little pack.
Nutrimetics Star Dust Shimmer Powder
This gorgeous, light shimmer gives a faint dusting on anywhere you want a little glow. Although the built in puff makes it easy to apply to the cheeks, decolletage or shoulders, it looks gorgeous when applied with a small brush to the eye lids.
Max Factor Lashlift Waterproof Volume & Lift Mascara
To go with the shimmer, make sure you highlight eyelashes with mascara, such as Max Factor’s latest offering. This mascara holds a curl fairly well. While it thickens lashes, there was no extreme change to volume and length. Definitely proves it?s waterproof claim and in fact can be a little hard to remove even with eye makeup remover. One to use if you plan on wearing a little mascara to the beach or on a hot day as you definitely won?t end up with panda eyes!
