Summer Beauty Trends

Summer is upon us and as you all know the biggest two beauty trends on the catwalk for this season are bright lips and rainbow eyes.
I wanted to share with you products I would use to recreate these looks and also share the inspirational images for my readers as they are quite spectacular.
Images from here!

To achieve bright lips try:

Nars - matt lip pencil in "Red Square" a lovely coral red.
Barry - M lip paints in 144 (cerise pink), 145 (punky pink), 146 (dolly pink) and 147 (peachy pink).
Mac - Russian Red and Lady Danger

To achieve rainbow eyes try:

Urban Decay book of shadows palette - Shattered, Absinthe and Goddess.
Mac - Steamy, Moon's Reflection, Contrast and Bio Green.
Barry M Dazzle Dusts - 22 (electric blue), 92 (aqua Gold)79 (gold green) and 80 (blue grey)

A good buy for multicoloured high standard eyeshadows I recommend Urban Decay book of shadows.

What other products do you recommend to help recreate these looks?
