Summer Lovin'

It's time for swimming pools, lemonade stands and cookouts. It's officially Summer! It's also time to shine light (or is it sunshine?) on Summer's beauties. Not sure if you are a Summer? These ladies have the following coloring or traits:

*Hair will be gray, brown or blonde and maybe light, medium or dark ash brown with ash highlights
*Summer blondes have no gold to their hair, only ash tones and many have a dusty/muted look
*Skin undertones are pink, rose or blue and skin tones range from porcelain to cool beige
*Freckles are rare, but are charcoal gray or rosy in color
*Summers do not have brown eyes
*Most common eye colors are blue or green with white flecks, gray blue, aqua, blue green or cool hazel
*Coloring resembles that of Jennifer Aniston, Michelle Pfeiffer, Diane Keaton & Sarah Jessica Parker

Below are a couple of ensembles that represent Summer's best colors. Shades of aqua, teal or turquoise work for the blue family. Neutrals that can be worn are gray, charcoal, bone or taupe. Pinks that work include rose or powder pink. Think silver or pink pearls for jewelry, and gray or navy for handbags.

Summer Pallette

Summer Pallette 2 To top off their look, Summers should use the following colors and products for makeup.

For eye shadows, shades of green blue, blue gray or lavender work best. I suggest using mark.'s I-mark eye shadow in shades Lotus or Nightly.

For blush, shades to use are soft pink, rose or soft plum. A great choice for this is mark.'s Just Blushing powder blush in shade Kitten.

Finally, lip colors for Summers are in the same family as blushes, and metallics have a silver shimmer. mark.'s Lipclick Full Color Lipstick in shades Baby Luv or Sweetie Pie are recommended.
