Tuesday Quick Tip #70 - June 21, 2011

Starlet Jenny Mollen sports summer's hottest makeup look - bronzed goddess. Brett shares his favorite tips to getting a sun-kissed glow this season!

The most important step to getting a bronzed makeup look is prepping the skin! Start by applying your favorite moisturizer or foundation and set it with a loose or pressed powder in your skin color. Brett loves MAC's Mineralize for it's sheer coverage. The powder stops the skin from grabbing the too-dark bronzing color.

Next, use a fluffy brush to apply your bronzer (Brett uses Elizabeth Arden Bronze Glow Pure Finish Mineral Bronzing Powder), starting at the jaw line, working your way up. Watch as your whole face warms up and immediately looks more alive!

Bonus tip: make sure you get the neck! Use Vanitymark's SUMMERSKIN on your chest, shoulders, and neck right up to the jaw line for an all over matching, bronzed color.

Getting a gorgeous bronzed glow has never been so simple!

Video Quick Tip #69 - June 7, 2011

Want to know how to stay pretty all summer? Brett tells us his three favorite makeup products to keep you looking gorgeous in the heat!

Josie Maran Argan Oil - It's 100% pure argan oil, with no parabens or fillers and moisturizes like a dry oil. It goes on really sheer and finely diffuses into the skin! Brett uses this around the eyes and mouth to bring hydration back into the skin. Mix it with a drop of foundation or your regular moisturizer to reinvigorate the skin, or use it at night for a moisture boost.

Benefit They're Real! Mascara - This mascara amazes in just one coat! It spreads beautifully, gives lashes great texture, and dries in no time. For a more dramatic, lash-popping look, apply 2-3 coats. Lashes will look thicker and longer, forcing people to ask the question, are those real??

Elizabeth Arden Sheer Lipstick - Bright lips like we've seen on Drew Barrymore and Camilla Belle are hot, hot, hot right now. But gals afraid to go bold with color will love these sheer lipsticks! They're not as waxy or pigmented like regular lipstick formulas but still give a pop of buildable color in a very modern way.

Run, don't walk, to your local beauty store to add these summer must-haves to your makeup roundup!
