I’ve fallen in cosmetic’s love with Too Faced. They have some genius products that create the perfect summer, barely-there, but glowing goddess look.


Step 1: Apply a tinted moisturizer (I use Laura Mercier Oil Free in Sand). For added color, mix with a bit of bronzing gel. Cargo’s Multi-Mix Bronzer , a universally flattering shade free of sulfates, parabens and petro-chemicals, is my new favorite.

Step 2: After the moisturizer/ gel bronzer is dry, dust Too Faced Candelight Powder – an incredibly soft illuminating translucent powder with a goldish glow – all over face. Focus on the brow and cheek bones for extra highlighting.

Step 3: Apply Too Faced Lock Down Creaseless Cream Eye Shadow in Bedroom Eyes to the lids of eyes. This is a universally appealling light taupe hue with a slight shimmer. On the eyes it looks more like a wash of color than a bold burst.

Step 4: Draw a thin line on the upper lash-line with Too Faced Metal-Eyed Liquid Eyeliner in Brown Sugar, a metallic bronze that looks fantastic – but not overdone – with bedroom eyes. It also gives it a little more umph than your average matte brown or black liner. Finish eyes with a few coats of Too Faced Lash Injection in black or brown (depending on your preference) on top and bottom lashes.

Step 5: For lips, I wanted something glossy but not too full of color. I chose Too Faced I’m Perfect (yes, I am), an undeniably sexy shade of sheer beige that gives lips a slight pop of sheer color and a mouthful of shine.

This entire summer makeover took me about 5 minutes from start to finish. Super easy and I love the results…
