Wandering through department stores can be a frightening thing. Being pulled this way and that, a consultation by an older woman who needs to stay off the tanning bed and lay off the blue hue shadow. Then there are always the sprayers, who spritz here and there and everywhere until you can smell the new scent through your pores. But life can be much simpler if you just knew what you needed. Or in other words, what’s in.

This season we emphasize on bronzed skin, bright eyes, bright lips, nude lips, nude eyes, and this season we are doing it all. Natural looks are always in all year round. Here is how to get that summer’s twist. Start off with a fresh face by using a natural looking foundation like Visage Mirage by Maven Cosmetics. Made with jojoba oil and ginseng ($29.50), this mineral-based make up with have your skin looking healthier at younger. Stop by their newest counter at Marshall Fields State St any Thursday or Friday of this month between 11-5 PM for a personal consultation. Stroll past the Maven counter and around the corner, Benefit to find something really beneficial to your cheeks. Dab on a bit of Jewels of the Amazon, in “your place or vine”($18.00) to get a sexy glow to your cheeks. Also try Tarte cheek stain in “tipsy” ($28.00) for a warm rosy glow. Have your lips screaming ohhhhhh, with Nars lipgloss in orgasm ($22.00), available only at Sephora. Finish your look with Chanel’s new mascara Cils a Cils in black ($24.00) for long, thick, curled lashes.

As the hours pass and the streetlights come on, remember it is okay to add a bit more or a lot more color. Play up your eyes with Smashbox eyeshadow duo in Daylight. This pigment dense twosome in pink and green will have everyone falling in love at first sight. Add drama with Sephora’s flirt it lash duo ($8.00) for that long lush extra large lash effect. Coat that to finish with Dior Show mascara ($23.00) in dark black. Darken up your pout with a more intense color like Nars Flaming Dust ($22.50) and feed your lips the vitamin E they need. Last but not least no look is complete without a signature scent, have the world drop at your feet with Burberry Brit Red ($44-$82.00), an oriental array of fresh fruits, red rose and luscious spices.

Rid the fear, grab a gal pal, and go out and explore. This summer make the look, your look.
