The completed look.
Good morning everyone,

I am heading out to run errands with my mom, which includes Sephora. So I thought would share some great products that I used today to create one of my go to looks for summer. The eyeshadow I used is gold by Bare Minerals, Lancome's Hypnose Drama Mascara, and Lancome's Le Stylo Waterproof eyeliner in Noir. I also used Lancome's Teint Miracle foundation, which is the absolute best. and on my lips, Lancome's Color Design lipstick in It Girl. As a blush I used Sephora Collection Harmony Trio Bronzer in Apricot, which looks great on fair skin and isn't overpowering. I do use a lot of Lancome products on a daily basis. This is mostly because my mom, grandmother and aunt use it, so I grew up with the brand. Also, the quality of their products cannot be beat.

Reviews of products used:

Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation in Ivorie 2C.  You cannot get a better foundation.  The Lancome description "Lit from within" describes it perfectly.  It has nice coverage and makes skin look glowing. However, if you have really oily skin, I would stay away from this and go with its cousin foundations, Teint Idole Fresh Wear (every bit as good as Teint Miracle) or Teint Idole Ultra.

Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara. Again, the best there is.  I will save every penny to buy this mascara.  It gives volume and length without clumping.

Sephora Collection Harmony Trio Bronzer in Apricot.  I would not classify this as a bronzer, but I still love it.  It gives a nice, subtle shimmer to the skin without being very overpowering.  It is perfect if you are going for a subtle, glowing look. 

bareMinerals eyeshadow: I have this in three shades and love each one.  For this look, I used True Gold which may be too shimmery for some people.  But I love that it stays put and gold shadow will make you look more awake.  Besides, gold is very in style for the summer and for good reason.

To tie the look together, I used Lancome's Color Design Lipstick in "It Girl" which is pink with some gold shimmer.  It is long lasting, non-drying and a lovely shade.  If you are familar with their color Sun Blush, this is a close color.  I was upset when I learned that it had been discontinued, but I think I like "It Girl" even more.
Lancome Le Stylo Waterproof eyeliner. Easy to apply, self sharpening and long lasting, plus it has a sponge on one end for easy smudging.  Enough said.
