Makeup For Summer 2009 Is All Sparkle And Shine
Is there anything that says glamour quite the way a little sparkle can? Definitely not!
Whether you readily embrace your inner drag queen with full out glitter or dip your toes in just a smidge with slightly shimmery eye shadow, that little bit of sparkly glamour is hot and happening as the weather heats up, and can be worn by women of any age and taste at any time of day.
Daytime glamour is not overdone for Summer 2009 makeup. Try a bit of light colored glitter eyeliner around a bare eye, or for the faint of heart, only in the inside corner – and it’ll look gorgeous on a faux tanned face (because sun worshipping is way passé).
For the slightly more adventurous, try a bronze or nude toned shadow all over the lid with an allover fine glitter or tone down with a lightly lustrous shade, and pop a dab of shimmery white shadow in the inside corner of eyes. Play with super metallic golds and silvers as well, applied wet to intensify color or dry for a more subtle shine. There are even glittery mascaras and brow gels that lend just a bit of something sparkly rather than an in your face rhinestone finish.
And while some gals can get used to the idea of a little shine on the eyes, shimmer on the face can be a bit more intimidating. However, there are loads of blushes, highlighters, bronzers and finishing powders to delight every diva. NARS is known for gorgeously flattering blushes and sun kissed bronzers with finishes from super glittery to just a hint of shine, and have recently come out with cream blushes and highlighters offering the same options.
Try a fresh and tropical blush applied to the apples of your cheeks, and top off a half-moon shape around the outside of eyes with a glittery highlight and you’ve got a look that can go from poolside to party side!
Sparkly lips are easy to experiment with as well! MAC has released their new Dazzleglasses, which are super sparkly, non-gritty feeling glosses that are gorgeous layered over your favorite lipstick or worn on their own. But gorgeous shimmery lip colors can be found almost anywhere, from the drugstore to the department store counter. Try coral and bronze colors, or even a bit of a lilac shade to be in perfect fashion for summer 2009 makeup.
Don’t forget the rest of your body, either! Many body lotions and even body washes are available that impart a little bit of color and a whole lot of shimmer to leave you goddess worthy.
Michael Kors makes a push-up designed specifically for legs that smells like a dream and leaves legs bronzed and sparkling, Urban Decay has a new shimmer lotion that’s less bronze and more champagne shimmer, as well as several scented sparkly powders that look lovely dusted on shoulders and collarbones, and Tarte offers several different sparkly lotions to suit any skin tone and shine preference.
So play around, read your reviews, and enjoy discovering how to incorporate a little summery glam into your everyday style for Summer 2009 makeup!
