Goodbye, Summer Brights!

Doesn't Labor Day Weekend often feel like the last true Summer Weekend? We have barbecues, some people go camping... and beauty/fashion addicts nudge aside the Fall colors they've been rocking for the last two weeks of August for their last go at Summer Brights; the Coral lips, the pop of Ocean Blue, the zealously applied Bronzer. At least, in my case!  It will likely also be one of the last weekends I spend exclusively in shorts and sandals.  We've got some warm days ahead yet, but all too soon it will be "Goodbye, Summer!" Sigh...



Sorry about my brows and wet hair! I wasn't planning to post today and was just playing around, but I love these brights so much I decided to blog :-D I think most people wouldn't pair these eyes with these lips, but I just liked it so here it is!

Confession: I threw every mascara I own on my lashes


Tank: Sugar Factory Las Vegas

Blooper Face!

Cupcake Rings: Forever 21
Donut Earrings: Hot Topic

Eyes: UDPP, MAC Paintpot in Painterly, Stila Travel Girl Beach Palette in Wonderful in Waikiki (used on cheeks, as well)
Lips: Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick in 909D Coral-ine
I looked way too cheesy in all my toothy-smile photos, but I wanted to show that this lipcolor makes teeth appear whiter. And it's $2.99! One of the best drugstore lipsticks, in my opinion.

  2. oh wow you are so good at applying make up! and I know what you mean on the last days of summer! We also had a fairly nice weekend in London (although today the weather went miserable and it was rainy all day!)

    Anyways, have a great start to the week!

  4. @The PvdH Journal, thank you, I am blushing! I have a lot of room to improve. Our weather went all gray today, sadly. Have you seen the movie 8 Mile? Detroit area looked like that whole movie today!

  9. Hi Riya, it's tricky because I prefer cuter colors but Fall colors tend to be more vampy. I'll definitely check your blog for some pretty ideas :)
