Berry Lovely…

I tend to introduce more color make-up wise in the Fall and Winter months.  During the summer my palate is bronzy, nude tones with a lot of mascara and clear gloss.  With Winter comes pale skin-so I lean towards a more smokey eye and berry colored lip.  These are some of my go-to’s!

Summer Summer Summertime…

Summer 2014 is off to a great start! The Bday week was so much fun! My friends were beyond generous and made sure that 41 started off with a bang!!

Saturday was spent sunning with girlfriends at The Grand Pavilion on the IOP.  I wanted to be  picture ready and make sure to protect my skin from the harsh summer sun. My tendency is to go light with make up in the sun…but let’s be honest waterproof mascara and lip-gloss are a must! These are some of my summer favs!!!

Revlon, Trish McEvoy, Maybelline and Cover Girl (my personal favorite) all have fantastic waterproof mascara to keep you from looking like Cruella DeVille at the beach.  What is your favorite summer beauty secret??!

Happy Monday friends…time to grind it out!  XOXO,  Catherine
