Summer brings with it a cocktail of warm earth tones and brazen shimmers. Eyes glisten in icy peach and matte apricot, or shine in iridescent orchid and blue. Lips are subtle in a glossy nude beige pink, or bold in matte strawberry red. A delicate seashell pink lends nails a flattering hue for an overall look that’s sizzling, sophisticated and—like so many summery moments—simply unforgettable. summer brings with it a cocktail of warm earth tones and brazen shimmers.

Happy Labour Day to those in the U.S.! Sadly, summer is rapidly coming to an end.  It is already getting cool at night here in NYC. Le sigh….

Here’s a quick LOTD that I wore this weekend, matte grey with a pop of shimmery, royal sea blue.

Hey!!!

It’s hot in NYC and I love it!!! When the weather gets hot and humid, you need to keep your makeup simple and long lasting.

Here are a few of my favourite items that I think are important and can withstand the summer heat!

Sunscreen

You really should wear sunscreen everyday of the year, but during the summer months when the sun’s rays are at their strongest, you need something to protect your skin from premature aging and sun damage.  Also, don’t forget to reapply often if you are going to be outdoors for long periods or perspiring.  I switch between a regular moisturizer with SPF and a tinted moisturizer with SPF.  Doesn’t matter what you use, just protect your skin!!!

M.A.C. Collection: Semi Precious

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

Typically, M.A.C. brings out a couple of large collections during the summer and one of them usually includes a mineralized collection.  For the newbies, mineralized makeup usually contains natural minerals in a powdered form and may be baked into a solid form.  It is touted as being better for the skin and there are less additives and binders that hold the particles together.  These products can be used both dry and wet which is different from typical pressed powder products.

Here is some information about M.A.C.’s newly released Semi Precious collection.  It is available from July 7 in the US and Canada at M.A.C. stores, counters and online.  Available internationally later on in July.

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!
