OK so, I wanted to do a look with the turquoises & greens in the Sephora palette and do a bright and fun summer look. I also used the eye liner from the MAC to the Beach launch to line the top and bottom lids. I topped everything off with MAC Opulash on my top lashes.

In the summer, I tan very easily. I have light blonde hair, so when my face gets too tan I start bordering on the Donnatella Versace look (too-tanned face, bleach-blonde hair - not attractive by any means!) Not to mention that it’s awful for your skin to go sunscreen-free over the summer.
Anyone have any suggestions?

LCN (stands for Light Cured Nails) are amazing. I've had mine on for about 2 years. The manicure lasts up to 4 weeks (yes, FOUR)! LCN nails never chip, break, get yellow or have any of the usual problems that traditional tips have.
Up until recently, LCN only offered the french manicure option. Now, LCN has come out with a variety of different color options to chose from. I picked this vibrant pink and it looks really pretty on my nails =) The only thing is, as the nails start to grow out it will become noticable since the color is on the darker side. With the french manicure, you could hardly tell when your nails were due to be done. It's cool though - I needed to try the color out to see how it looked =)
LCN nails can also be done on your toes too! They last the same amount of time (about 4 weeks) without chipping or breaking in any way. Think about that - during the summer, you would only need to get your nails and toes done THREE times! Amazing!
What do you guys think, has anyone else tried LCN nails? Or do you prefer doing your own nails?

I finally got it!! OK, so it isn't a completely "new" product, but I just purchased it so it is new to my makeup collection =) I have been going a bit nuts with this product - I just love it! I can totally see how some people go overboard with it - the healthy, glowy look it gives you is very desirable and perfect for summer.
I used it in my previous post (FOTD) and was very happy with the results. The directions say it can be applied over or under makeup, and all over the face or as a highlighter. I used it on top of everything - after I put on my base, bronzer and blush I just highlighted my cheek bones with it.
I also wore it alone today while I was rollerblading with my boyfriend outside - it was way too hot for foundation or other makeup, so the Illuminator on my cheek bones and a little mascara looked just right for a fun, beachy day. Despite the insanely hot temperature, it seemed to stay in place fairly well.
I'm not sure if I would put it all over my face - I think it might make me look too shiny (I already have oily skin, so it might be a scary combination).
I have not tried it under my makeup, has anyone else? I want to experiment to see what looks best - I know some of you ladies own the Illuminator, so let me know how you use it!! xoxo

I can't believe it's taken me this long to purchase Fix +! I'll be perfectly honest - I had no idea what the hell Fix + was. Being an avid MAC customer, I always saw it in the store but passed it on by. After reading an excellent review on one of the many beauty blogs I read, I had to try it out for myself. Turns out, it's an amazing product!
