This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Summer Makeup Splash

July, 8, 2014

Fuchsia is such a summer color, what with its namesake flowers blooming in gardens, popping out of pots, and appearing on apparel. This hue has even migrated into makeup. On the eyes, it can look either rock star-ish or refreshing. I like to go for the latter, so I teamed up with Tricia – the globetrotting Bobbi Brown babe – and mixed together colors that give off that tint.

I was heading out to a block party, so Tricia thought I should have a bright face. She started by dusting on Ultra Violet. This color can go on heavy, so if you want my look use a light hand.

Next, add some Mulberry in the crease for depth.

Summer Makeup Splash C

End with Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner. Now, with a flick of your mascara wand, you’re ready to hit up any summer party!

Thanks Tricia. That lady never disappoints when it comes to makeup moves:)
