    It finally really feels like summer to me! That means I’m busting out my bronzers and experimenting with them all to find the perfect summer look.

    Brand of the Week: Hello Kitty

    It’s so hard to narrow down my fave brands because quite frankly, I love all beauty products more than the Kardashian family loves the camera! But if I had to choose a fave this week, I’d have to go with Hello Kitty (available at Sephora) since I’ve been playing with these summer cuties for the past few days. Here’s a look at some of my favourites. Are these products not too cute for words?

    My ultimate obsession is Hello Kitty Rollerball Eau de Parfum ($23). This compact perfume is perfect for traveling but at the rate I use it, I won’t have any left by the time I head out on my next vacation. I love scent and the rollerball bottle makes it easy to apply and 100% mess-free.

    I’m also really making great use out of this Hello Kitty Charmmy Eyeshadow Stick ($21) in Friendship. This shimmering light beige has the perfect metallic finish. I love using it on the brow bone to highlight. Just glide it on and smudge with a fingertip.

    I’m into cream blush these days because they last longer than traditional powder blush and I just love the Hello Kitty Apple Cheeks Blush ($29). It’s great because all you have to do is smudge it on your cheeks and then blend with your fingertips, just like the eyeshadow. This makeup is great for gals who are makeup brush-challenged and want a pretty look in 5 minutes or less.

    And because I’m such a nerd, I actually wear this baby pink polish JUST because I love the bottle! Hello Kitty Liquid Nail Art ($13) is available in the absolute cutest shades ever. I’ve got Frosted Cupcake, the sheer pink with silver glitter pictured above, but I’m also a fan of Bubblegum, Blueberry and Purple Sprinkles. I bring out my inner girly-girl with this collection!

    Which Hello Kitty goodies are your favourites this summer?

    Are You Into Pink This Summer?

    OPI has just launched Nice Stems, a new collection of four limited edition pink nail polishes in different shades and finishes ($10.95 each).

    What do you think of these pink polishes? My personal favourite is Play the Peonies, a super soft pink hue that really fits in well with the spring’s trends. I also think it’s also understated and elegant.

    How do you feel about these pink nail colours? Which are your faves?

    Shade: Be a Dahlia Won’t You?

    Shade: Come to Poppy

    Shade: I Lily Love You

    Get a Natural and Super Sexy Glow This Summer

    Bronzer time is back and I’m ridiculously excited about that. The gloom of winter seems light years away when you apply some sun-kissed makeup and give your skin the natural glow it’s been craving for months on end.

    Lancôme just launched a new product called Natural Glow Star Bronzer ($46) and it’s available at Lancôme counters now. I am personally in love with it. It’s so subtle yet so chic. It gives your skin that much needed boost of radiance but won’t give you a Jersey Shore style fake tan. That just looks crazy…agreed? I like to dust this on with a bronzer brush right over my cheekbones, t-zone and the temples. It enhances my skin and gives me a more radiant look rather than a tanned effect.

    If you’re into the summer’s dewy complexion trend sported by celebs like Natalie Portman (my fave), then you cannot miss La Base Dewy Glow ($44). This item is limited edition and is only expected to be available until July so don’t waste your time in snagging this little gem. It’s a refreshing mist and when you spray it on, it gives your complexion a radiant glow. You’ll look way more like a beachy California girl than a sun-deprived Canadian!

    La Base Dewy Glow acts a little bit like a primer in the sense that it prepares the skin for long-lasting makeup and it’s also great for refreshing your look during the day so your complexion will never be dull. For an extra summer-friendly look, apply La Base Dewy Glow and sweep on a touch of Natural Glow Star Bronzer. You’re going to look like such a beach babe and a natural born beauty.
