    Yeah, random comment. Tart: follows the prefix pop for a delicious brand of toaster pastries; a sour or acidic taste, sharp in character, spirit, or expression

    Summer is my very favorite season to wear makeup and really experiment with different looks for myself using my makeup. I think it's partly because I spend so much time outside in the summer that I feel energized and motivated to take the time to explore with color, and also because I look healthier because I always have a slight tan so I think my skin just looks and glows more! So having some fabulous new products from Tarte this summer to enhance my face and skin would be so fun! I enjoy working with color and trying new ways to bring out the best in me and the way I look so thanks so much for the chance to enter.

    I've maintained since I was around 13 (and started wearing makeup – coincidence?) that my true self crawls out of dormancy during the wake of that first scorcher day in California that we sunshine addicts so regard as the first day of summer. In other words, when I roll out of bed in the morning and remember that, yes, it is June, and yes, why I do feel wonderful and fabulous and as glowy as every lit-up crack in the sidewalk, one of my first thoughts is:
    Ooh, it's summer – I get to do my makeup!
    The look I've been dying to experiment with since January is that burnished rose look – tinted moisturizer (not forgetting the powder on the oily areas, though, as it is upwards in the 80's out already, yeesh) [I use E.L.F.'s], a slight coral or peach punch of blush [I use Tarte's Eco-Cheek], lots of golden eyeshadow [I like L'Oreal's HIP duo in Gilded] with maybe a swipe of coppery eyeliner on my lower lashline [Rimmel's eyeliner in Ginger Tea is killer ideal], and on the lips, something bronzey-peachy and glowy [I like Pop's sugar shine in basically any color]. And yes, I am sporting this look a little more than occasionally!
    Summer is one of those gilded months where all goes in the romanticism that is cosmetics and beauty, and I daresay – It's a beautiful thing.
