• Summer 2012 Favourites

Hello dolls!
I love summer so much and the last couple summers have been too short for me due to working and studying. So before I kiss this summer goodbye I thought I'd share with you my favourite products for the last couple months.

Put on your lipstick and let's go out for cocktails
For make up I liked the neutral eyes-bright lips trend. For the eye make up I used my Urban Decay Naked and my Too Faced Natural at Night palettes. The Too Faced one is relatively new, a gift from a sweet friend, swatches coming soon.
My most-used colours from Naked are the ones with the tiny hearts. Virgin as highlight, Buck to define the crease and Darkhorse for the outer corner and maybe the lower lashline if I wanted a more dramatic look. From Natural at Night, the colour that impressed me the most was Spotlight. It's a matte yellow-beige and it's perfect as a matte highlight because it hides those tiny veins. Cocoa Star is a lovely chocolate brown and I used it to warm up my eye make up.
And here are some swatches of the Lovie lipsticks I loved this summer. More swatches and review coming soon. I love pink, red and orange lips!

You can leave your splash on
In hot summer days heavy fragrances are a no-no for me! So body sprays/body splashes saved me and people around me from suffocating.
Oriflame Nature Secrets Body Mist in mint & raspberry: fresh and fruity scent, I have the shower gel from the same line and I like to use them together.
Avon Naturals cherry blossom body spray: it's a little heavier than I expected but I still like it.
The Body Shop Vanilla body mist: the classic vanilla scent in a lighter version.
Victoria's Secret Secret Craving fragrance mist: I don't think these are available in greek stores so when I saw the huge colourful Victoria's Secret display at the airport I had to have one!
H&M Exotic Guava and Lime Coconut body splash: nothing too special about them, they are cheap and they come is small bottles, perfect for throwing in the suitcase.

Face sprays are a girl's best friend
Especially during hot summer days! A bottle of water and one of these guys were always in my bag.
The Body Shop Vitamin E face mist* and Avene Eau Thermale*

I swear by the Gods, the old and the new
Meaning the old* and new Garnier BB* creams. I was using the new one but the colour was too light and Ria suggested I mixed them together. The result: this non-oily-glow-from-within-skin I've always dreamed about! The lesson: if you love two things try mixing them! (non applicable to boys, sorry)
Sun rays in your hair
Hair trend: Balayage. These are highlights but more natural ones. To create this look you don't use foils, you paint the hair strands and use some cotton to prevent the strands from touching. You look like a Christmas tree but the result is very natural and pretty. If you have light hair you'll have a similar effect by using lemon or chamomile juice in your hair while in the sun. You'd better search about it though because I've never tried it and lemon juice may make your hair dry.

Orange county nails
You probably noticed, I went orange-o-holic this summer as far as nails are concerned. Here are my favourite ones.
Erre Due No.184, Essie Meet me at Sunset, Braziliant, Fear or Desire
