Summer Beauty Trend: Sweet Romance

Summer will be here before we know it and so will brand new summer beauty trends.  Beauty.com is stepping into the season with a new series of Summer Trend Tutorials!  First up is bridal romance.  For this look, I created illumination around the eye area to really make them sparkle.  The skin was kept fresh with a pretty pink lip.  See how to get the full look here:

I recently worked with Tracee Ellis Ross to create a gorgeous, smokey eye.  This is a timeless eye that looks great on anyone!  See the step-by-step tutorial below:

I began by applying Prescriptives Softlining Pencil, Jet to the top lash line and then lined the lower lash line with NARS Larger Than Life Long Wear Eyeliner, 47th Street:

Springtime Cleansers

Right now I’m loving this oil cleanser from Wei:

Wei To Go Real Clean Gelled Oil Cleanser

Wei To Go Real Clean Gelled Oil Cleanser

It’s great for hot spring or summer days.  It leaves you feeling fresh and clean without feeling grimy and sticky – particularly helpful in New York City!  The gel binds with excess oil and dirt in your skin and just lifts it away without leaving any residue.  These small tubes are perfect for packing in your hand luggage when you travel. 

I’m also loving Sunday Riley’s Artemis Face Oil:

This is perfect for detoxifying and keeping skin clear – especially great for combating humidity in city weather!  What are your go-to oil skin care products?
