I've fallen in cosmetic's love with Too Faced. They have some genius products that create the perfect summer, barely-there, but glowing goddess look.


Step 1: Apply a tinted moisturizer (I use Laura Mercier Oil Free in Sand). For added color, mix with a bit of bronzing gel. Cargo's Multi-Mix Bronzer , a universally flattering shade free of sulfates, parabens and petro-chemicals, is my new favorite.

Step 2: After the moisturizer/ gel bronzer is dry, dust Too Faced Candelight Powder - an incredibly soft illuminating translucent powder with a goldish glow - all over face. Focus on the brow and cheek bones for extra highlighting.

Step 3: Apply Too Faced Lock Down Creaseless Cream Eye Shadow in Bedroom Eyes to the lids of eyes. This is a universally appealling light taupe hue with a slight shimmer. On the eyes it looks more like a wash of color than a bold burst.

Step 4: Draw a thin line on the upper lash-line with Too Faced Metal-Eyed Liquid Eyeliner in Brown Sugar, a metallic bronze that looks fantastic - but not overdone - with bedroom eyes. It also gives it a little more umph than your average matte brown or black liner. Finish eyes with a few coats of Too Faced Lash Injection in black or brown (depending on your preference) on top and bottom lashes.

Step 5: For lips, I wanted something glossy but not too full of color. I chose Too Faced I'm Perfect (yes, I am), an undeniably sexy shade of sheer beige that gives lips a slight pop of sheer color and a mouthful of shine.

This entire summer makeover took me about 5 minutes from start to finish. Super easy and I love the results...

Your lashes are SUPER long! Is that with help from the Lash Injection?

Great look!

How come you don't write about the restalyn or whatever it is that you fill your lips with? It is obvious that your lips are not naturally that thick.
