There are two words that I want to describe my summer makeup look and those are sparkle and glow. I want it to look like I have the perfect amount of sun and I want my lips to glisten with just the right amount of sparkle. The right amount not being what my baby girl would recommend, which would be to douse myself in glitter. Bwah! On that note, there are a few products that I'm loving these days. They're just the ticket to help me achieve the perfect summer makeup look and I'm calling them my hot weather makeup must haves...
