Currently there seem to be two very popular themes:
Summer HeatAND Megan Fox from the new movie, “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”…these in no particular order of importance.
I can say with confidence that this woman looks hot hot hot in very little makeup (as displayed above at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards), which makes me super jealous and envious. But in spite of my jealousy of this natural beauty, she also inspires me to perfect my summer makeup look by the “less is more” attitude.
Here are a few things you can do “a la Megan Fox” to look smoldering without your makeup running in the summer heat:
Smudge proof Skin:Don’t even worry about foundation because it will feel too heavy in the heat. Just apply a killer self tanner on your face at night to even out your skin tone so that you wake up with brighter skin with a bit more color. Try the ultimate self tanner for the face and body by St. Tropez Whipped Bronze Mousse ($40) which dries in less than a minute and deepens in color over 3 hrs to a streak free, smell free, sun kissed glow! Ta Da!!
Smudge proof Eyes:Forget eyeshadow and liner, just stick to waterproof mascara. Look at Megan’s eyes and see how beautiful she looks with only black mascara! Simple and clean is the way to go for the summer swelter. Use Makeup Up Forever’s new waterproof version of their popular Aqua Smoky Lash ($22, exclusively at Sephora) which delivers faux fringe like lashes.
Smudgeproof Lips:Give your lips a double treat by slathering them with SPF protection and a pretty stain of color. You can keep your lips hydrated and soft feeling with tarte’s 24/7 Natural Lip Sheer ($14). I own this product in the color “Friday” and the best part of this lip color is that it’s not sticky at all, so when your hair is flying around in the beachy breeze, it won’t stick in yucky gloss! It delivers perfectly colored lips with extreme staying power without the drying effect of a stay on lip color. I can’t say enough good things about this smudge proof lip sheer. If you like Megan’s coral colored lips, try this product in “Happy Hour.”
There ya go, 3 products to mimic Megan Fox. You (or your husband/boyfriend) can thank me later;-)
