LOTD: Bright, coral summer look!

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]
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!

I'm ready for summer, so is Stila, are you?

One of the best times of the year is when companies start releasing their summer collections! I am thrilled, summer gets to last more than 3 months, at least in my mind!

So Stila recently released their summer 2011 offerings, which focused on pops of bright colours for the eyes, bronzey  skin and see-thru lips.

At this time, the collection is available online at stilacosmetics.com and will appear later on at specialty stores, like Sephora.

My eyes instantly made a beeline for those bright shimmery liquid liners.  These look just like the liners that M.A.C. brought out last year except these are bold and I love them. They are billed as the first sparkle waterproof liners.  Full review and swatches on them in a later post!

Check out the rest of the collection! (all photos and info courtesy of Stilacosmetics.com)
