Beach Lover

By now, I think you all realize I love summer. I am a Leo and we cats love the sun and heat. I also love summer because I have a glow and need less makeup. Because of the importance of sunscreen, most of my glow is created by self-tanner and the right combination of products. And just in time for summer, Nars has created the perfect set to enable all women to look as though they spent the day at the beach.
Nars “Beach Lover” is a 5 piece travel-size gift set that will give you the perfect island glow. Featuring their most iconic beachy colors, this is a must have for anyone that loves the look of spending the day at the beach without really doing it.

Nars Beach Lover $49 ($74 value) is a limited edition and is exclusive to Sephora

This amazing set contains the following products:

Blush Duo in Hungry Heart (golden ivory) and Orgasm (peach pink with golden tones). This duo compliments each other perfectly. The blushes are translucent, natural, and leave skin with a healthy glow.

Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Skorpios (iridescent copper). This pencil is smooth and creamy and can be worn all over the eye. It is also incredibly long-wearing.

Lip Gloss in Laguna (bronze and limited edition). A very pigment dense gloss that doesn’t dry out your lips, stays put, and makes lips look kissable.

Illuminator in Laguna (brown with golden shimmer). A miracle product, this illuminator gives skin a refreshed luminosity. Worn alone or with other makeup, you will look radiant.

No makeup, just a beachy glow (Mexico 2006)

So, if you can’t make it to an island, at least you can fake it!!

Kajal Me

Do you remember in “Sex and the City 2” when the oh-so-stylish Carrie Bradshaw purchased a unique eyeliner in the Souk? And then she lined her eyes as black as night for her ill-fated meeting with Aidan? Well, that was Kajal eyeliner and it’s sweeping the States in a big way.

Kajal has been used for centuries by women in India and other Eastern parts of the world. It is a richly intense black ingredient that delivers stunning definition and the cone shape enables the product to glide effortlessly. The result is very defined and contoured eyes.

Estee Lauder’s Intense Kajal Eye Crayon is a creamy crayon that creates intense, smoldering color in one single stroke. It blends very easily and can be used as a liner or smudged for more of a shadow. For added drama, try lining the lower inner rim of the eye.

available at fine department stores

Many of the drugstore brands are introducing Kajal liners to their repertoire. A great (and more affordable) option is by Loreal. It’s every bit as good as the Estee Lauder crayon.

There’s nothing I love more than a smokey eye. It’s very glamorous and can really make your eyes pop. Unfortunately, I’ve never mastered the look. I have trouble wearing eyeliner (my eyes are shaped weird and it ends up on my brow bone), but this does look amazing and would be very fun to play around with. A smokey eye can be very sexy, and the Kajal eye is one step above that. It’s SMOLDERING!
