Top 5 Magpie Summer 2011 Beauty Buys!

With the 4th of July weekend upon us, we Magpies are getting our bags packed to hit the beach! While we haven’t decided how many dresses or pairs of shoes we’re bringing just yet, we have decided what makeup will make the cut. These items have become our go-to summer beauty picks – and we can’t wait to share ’em!

1) Clinique Long Last Glosswear SPF 15: We absolutely adore this lip gloss, which stays on all day at the beach and protects our oh-so-delicate lips at the same time. We also love the range of colors: the bright pink “Clearly Pink” and pale pink “Air Kiss” colors are our two must-haves.

2) Smashbox Bronze Lights in Suntan Matte: Let’s be honest, unless you were born with Beyonce or Halle Berry’s skin color, we never seem to get really that gorgeous, even glow we’re always hoping for. Which is why we were beyond excited to discover this Smashbox Bronzer. This buildable powder gives us the most believable bronze color – and it has no shimmer or orange in it at all. It’s a fave of the Kardashian clan – and now it’s a fave of ours, too.

3) Revlon ColorStay Under Eye Concealer with SPF 15: We hate wearing a lot of makeup to the beach – but protecting our sensitive eyelids and concealing our dark circles is a must (no matter what the occasion). We Magpies love that this Revlon concealer comes in several shades and has an SPF of 15 – we use it religiously. And, like its name says…the color stays all day!

4) Maybelline Volume Express the Falsies Waterproof Mascara in Black Drama: Nothing looks worse in the summer than black mascara running all over your face. So it’s really important to find a waterproof mascara that doesn’t smudge in extreme heat. We really loved the jet black color of this mascara – and found that it really does stay all day long beneath the hot summer sun.

5) Essie Nail Polish in Braziliant: And finally, our fave new mani/pedi color of the summer is this gorgeous coral color from Essie’s Summer 2011 collection. It looks great on nails and toes – and gives the perfect pop of color against our (fake) summer tans!

So Magpies – these are our top 5 beauty picks for Summer 2011! Now tell us, what summer products you can’t live without?
