I adore makeup and I couldn’t live without it! I really enjoy using brown eye shadow because it really makes my blue eyes stand out. In the Summer, I typically wear brown eye shadow to bring out my eye color and then use a light colored lip gloss on my lips (to compliment my fair skin color). Hard Candy has two great makeup products that are a must this Summer: Eye Def Glitter Eyeshadow in Ditch and Mouthing Off Sheer Lip Shine in Drama Queen.
Eye Def Glitter Eyeshadow makes it easy to apply with one swift hand movement by using the applicator wand. This eyeshadow glides along your eyelid easily and dries quickly. The eye shadow can also be used as an eye liner and is long lasting and smudge proof. It is available online at Walmart for only $6 and comes in a variety of colors (20 colors in all). I used it on my eyelids (from my lash line to my crease) and it was absolutely beautiful and easy to use. I like that the color is rich and has little shimmer specks that aren’t too overpowering. The color, Ditch, really makes my blue eye color stand out!
Mouthing Off Sheer Lip Shine is available in 8 different colors. I received “Drama Queen” , which, is a princess pink color with lots of very fine shimmer sparkles. This looks perfectly pretty when it is worn all by itself and also adds some shimmer and shine when worn on top of lipstick. Although the color is translucent, it does add a tad of pink to my otherwise colorless lips, which, is a big plus for me. I also appreciate that the gloss itself doesn’t have that “tacky” feel to it. It actually glides on smoothly and stays put for hours before you need to apply it again. This lip gloss brightens up my face and and compliments my skin tone.
