School’s over, and summer hours at work have begun.  You get the itch to take ah l’il vacation.  Here are a few items that I packed in my summer vacation beauty kit!

  • Unii palette with refills –  I got this super cute, hard case palette at the makeup show (gifted) and I really like it to place some of my favourite colours to give me a quick daytime or nighttime dinner look.  This palette can hold lots of refill pans including Make Up For Ever, M.A.C. and Inglot.  Just toss in in your bag and you don’t have to worry about your eyeshadows breaking or having to cart a whole bunch of them!

LOTD: Bright, coral summer look!

Hey!

Here is a bright look for the summer!  I used one of the most popular colours for the season, coral, but made it wearable for everyone with a light application.  Of course, you can intensify the look by adding a bright liner on the lower lashline, like green, gold or turquoise.

Bright, summer look!

LOTD: A bronzey, coral look!!

Hey!!

So in celebration of the amazing warm weather we’ve been having, I decided to make use of one of my favourite colours of the season, coral.  Honestly, I don’t know why it took me so long to discover this colour.  I think it had something to do with a wedding that I was in as a child, and had to wear the MOST hideous peach bridesmaid dress ever…..and the makeup was just wrong…..sigh….

So I was browsing the M.A.C. website and was looking at the face charts that they published for the collection.

I was instantly drawn to this stunning coral look, with a shot of turquoise along the waterline.  I loved it!  Coincidentally, oranges and blues are complementary and look amazing together in the right proportion.  So the coral makes the turquoise liner pop even more!!!!  A great summer look!!!!

I may repeat this look soon, so I’ll try to take better pics!

Enjoy! 🙂

I think that there is something for everyone.  The colours are very wearable and not too warm or too cool.  The limited edition packaging is really beautiful with at least 4 different colours/designs.  Shadows came in bright avocado green cases with a cream seashell on the cover, the blushes and the highlight powder came in deep olive green casing, the bronzers, lipsticks and lipglosses came in deep orange cases with cream starfish and the eye  and lip pencils were white with a coral design.  While there are quite a few permanent and repromoted items, there were some stand out items:
