I much prefer liquid or creamy based eyeliners than powder. For one, I've had a bad run with powder eyeshadows when I try to be wet my brush and attempt to turn them into a wetter consistency for lining. Although some powder shadows are meant to be able to do this, I still find that after I draw my line, tiny powder particles seem to land on my upper cheeks throughout the day. As I'm constantly touching my face, there have been some smudging 'accidents that make me look I'm going out for the football team. Luckily for me, we just got in some amazing new eyeliners in store!
Kevyn Aucoin's Precision Liquid Liner comes with a felt tip applicator for easy lining or more daredevil accuracy for a dramatic cat eye. It's also waterproof so will hold onto your eyelids for dear life, come rain, sleet, sweat or snow. As it's a quick drying formulation, there's no need for you to not blink for two minutes nor fan your eyes (come on ladies we've all been there).
There's no point investing in a creme liner without knowing you're going to be applying it with an amazing brush. EF | STUDIO's Creme Eye Liner & Precision Point Liner Brush has everything you need for $40. The double ended liner brush is one of the finest engineered brushes on the market making it effortless to apply creamy or water based eye products. The Creme Eye Liner in Kuro has the most luxurious feel and will work for all skin types. It can be used to create sleek, sexy lines or it doubles as a great shadow to create the iconic smoky eye. No smudging, flaking or streaking!
I'm very excited to enhance my eye area with the EF | STUDIO Eye Gloss Transparent which I'm hoping is a much less stickier and tackier version than Mac's Eye Glass. I love the dewy, sensual finish it leaves on your eyes, but not the feeling that your eyelids are stuck. With EF | STUDIO's, it contains moisturizing properties to preserve the natural suppleness of the eye area so it leaves a beautiful wet look to lids without the stick!

There's no better way to show off your legs and decolette this summer than with a sun kissed glow. If you're in a hurry and don't have the time to apply a self tanner than consider Jouer's Luminizing Body Glow. Not only does it moisturize the body with shea butter and chamomile but it also leaves a subtle luminescent glow with a golden, satin finish. Infused with softly blended scents of gardenia, jasmine and honeysuckle will leave you smelling perfectly sweet.

Achieving the perfect bronze isn't as easy as you would think. Plus, there's a fine line between going overboard with the self tanner and gold eyeshadow and looking like you're just perfectly sun kissed. Whether you're wanting to enhance an existing tan or give yourself a beautiful golden glow, I think it's safe to say that the Nuxe Paris Multi Usage Dry Oil can do no wrong.
It was just featured in July's Allure magazine as part of the 6 steps to achieve a stunning 'head to toe bronze.' Although they've suggested running a few drops of the oil throughout your hair to add a pretty golden sheen and smooth flyaways this super conditioning dry oil can also be used as a body moisturizer. I love to apply it on my décolleté, collarbone and tops of shoulders to create that gorgeous summer glow and also deeply condition my skin. Tiny mother of pearl particles creates the luminosity while bronzing dry oil softly enhances your tan to perfection.
