|mark Spring 2014 (L-R): Nail This Look, Blooming Pretty Highlighting Face Powder
& Color Swing Mix it Up Eye Compact
mark is looking to the bright side this Spring with cool blues on the eyes, hot pink for cheeks and bright nails. The Blooming Pretty Highlighting Face Powder is so pretty, that I almost didn’t want to use it. Embossed with flowers in bloom, the gorgeous compact delivers colour to the cheeks and an all-over soft glow to the skin. The yellow on its own didn’t work for me as a stand-alone highlighter, but I tried using it as an eye shadow and it paired well with neutral shadows. The two pink shades worked great as blushers to brighten up the cheeks and all three colours swirled together produced a nice soft all-over glow.

The Color Swing Mix it Up Eye Compact is perfect for neutral eye shadow lovers that don’t want to invest in bold, fun shades on their own. This ingenious compact features 3 neutral shadows on one side and 3 super-trendy bright shades on the other. Each of the six shadows are crease-resistant and smudge-proof when used with a primer. I really like the smooth and velvety texture of these shadows and the packaging of this product! mark really hit it out of the ballpark with this one! Check out the photos…..

Probably my favourite product in the bunch and what no beach bag should ever be without is the That’s Beachy Texturizing Surf Spray. I’ve been looking for a good texturizer for awhile now, and am happy to say that the search has finally come to an end. Designed to give you sexy, beachy hair without the drying effects of sea salt, this product does exactly what it claims to do. All you need is a few sprays, followed by some “scrunching” to get immediate texture/volume and natural-looking beach waves.
