Soooo it’s Shark Week and America has gone shark crazy! It’s been an absolute frenzy of sharks on TV and on the web!  I’ve caught a few episodes myself so I thought I’d join in on the fun with a shark week inspired post! Inspired by seaside beauty – Chanetecaille Save the Sharks Palette features three eye shadows and a blush shade. Each shade is embossed with a cute little shark fin with a fun name to match!

Tarte Amazonian Clay Matte Waterproof Mineral Powder Bronzer $29

No shimmer here – this ultra matte bronzer gives you the glow you’re looking for without the excess shine.

bobbi brown gel eyeliner

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner $23

The eyeliner I can’t live without – Bobbi’s gel eyeliners last all day and night. It has the staying power of a waterproof mascara, so it’s definitely a must-have for summer. I recommend a lighter shade for summer, try it in espresso ink.

The affordable lip stain that stays put on your pout throughout the day. Try it in smooch proof – a gorgeous berry pink, that will leave your lips looking ripe for summer.

Clinique lash power mascara

Nothing beats a good waterproof mascara. It’s a season chock full of celebrations – like weddings and graduations. Your eyes are bound to well up during these events; and if your mascara isn’t waterproof, you’ll end up with black tears in no time! This mascara from Clinique makes your lashes look longer and will keep you smudge free for up to 24 hours.

 

Illamasqua Paranormal Palette

Illamasqua Paranormal Palette $46.50

Bright, bold, beautiful colors for the summer, this shadow palette looks like a powder, but feels like a cream. It has a unique formula that’s waterproof with a silky finish.

 

Makeup Forever Eye Makeup Remover

So if all these products are waterproof – how do you take it off!?! Well, I recommend Makeup For Ever’s Waterproof Sensitive Eye Cleanser. It’s a refreshing lightweight makeup remover that helps you remove your makeup effortlessly, minimizing your need to tug and pull at your eye area.

Hello Kitty Wild Thing

Wild Thing, you make my heart sing oh you make a every – okay okay – I’ll stop with the annoying off pitch singing! It’s just that I get so excited when Hello Kitty brings us grown up items! The Hello Kitty Wild Thing Makeup Palette features 12 eyeshadows, 1 Pen Pal Eyeliner in Black, and a super cute compact mirror all housed together in an adorable black and gold zebra print collectable tin. The eye shadows are all highly pigmented and the eyeliner is very similar to the Nars Eyeliner Stylo pens.
