Summer is my favorite makeup season of the year. Not only does it mean cutting back on a few extra makeup products but also introducing pastel eyeshadows, romantic pink glosses and my personal favorite, bronzing creams and powders. European luxury brand By Terry's new products have really caught my eye this season for their amazing formulations and gorgeous shades. Here are the ones I'll be getting to create my summer makeup look for 2012.
I'm really picky about self tanners but have found a lot of luck with facial moisturizers that work to nourish the skin as well as build a safe and natural looking tan. The one I have my eye on this summer is By Terry's Serum Terrybly Sunbooster. Active ingredients work together to create a luminous tan 365 days a year, without DHA or sun exposure. Simply apply morning and evening onto cleansed skin.
Now that my tan is in check I want to enhance my cheekbones with a sexy shade and my favorite of the moment is By Terry's Blush Terrybly Ultimate Radiance Blush in Beach Bomb, a deep pinky coral with iridescent particles. The silver compact it comes in is so gorgeous but best of all is the lasting power. Blush typically tends to wear off after a long day but this highly pigmented yet sheer blush keeps a freshly applied appearance all day.
Eyes are a lot of fun to mix and match shades to really open them up and get noticed. One of my favorite eyeshadow types to work with are cream eyeshadows like By Terry's Ombre Blackstar Cream Eyeshadow in Paradise Island. What's so great about this particular product is that fact that it literally melts away onto the lid and has a ultra glossy and long holding film. You literally can draw on your shape like a crayon to give smooth application and the icy blue shade of Paradise Island is perfect for summer!
Lastly By Terry's Aqualip Jelly Tint in Dancefloor Flirt is a fuchsia pink lip stain. Somewhere between a lip tattoo and a color infusion, as soon as it touches the lips, it's jelly texture transforms into water to offer a real sensation of freshness. If you're game, try the latest 'color blocking' lip trend and use Dancefloor Flirt on the inner parts of the lips and a bright orange like Armour Beauty Opaque Lip Gloss in Lucy on the outer lips!
Hope this inspires you to create your own new summer look!
