Is this weekend really Memorial Day Weekend? It seems as though we just skipped Spring. The cold rainy weeks were not so inspiring. So the question "What's Hot for Summer?" is all about getting inspired for Summer!

The makeup trends for summer are all about skin, lashes, lashes, lashes and coral colors for cheeks and lips. So let's start with the skin, beautiful glowing healthy skin is always in. One of my "must haves" the new Face Fabric from Giorgio Armani Cosmetics. This is a new cream to powder formula that has an exclusive MicroFil light pigment that applies like a second skin.The result is a luminescent glow. It's perfect for summer because it dries to a sheer powder.

Now let's talk about lashes. The trend for summer is lashes and more lashes. If your looking for no fuss beach ready lashes then Lavish Lashes lash extensions by "yours truly" are the answer! I use individual micro- fiber extensions and surgical grade adhesive to apply to each individual lash. Once they are applied there is no need for a lash curler or mascara! How long they last depends on your shed cycle. They can last up to 6 weeks for $200! Stay tuned for a special Summer promotion. If you are not ready to make the commitment to extensions then let's talk mascara! My fave in the drugstore category is Voluminous Black Carbon by Loreal and the new Lash Stiletto by Maybelline both create full lashes on a budget. They both retail for under $10.My "must have splurge" is Dior Show Backstage. It's the waterproof version of the cult favorite which retails for $24.

Stay tuned for "Corals"
