It is the dog days of summer. I find that during the heat, a little makeup goes a long way.
A few, fun shimmery cosmetics can be used all over to give glow during those hot days and nights. Here are my current favorites:
No7 Shimmer Brick Palette ($14.99 USD) — Get an all-year-round glow with No7 Shimmer Palette. The No7 Shimmer Palette is made up of flattering shades to give an extra lift to your complexion. Its spectrum of colors mean it can be used to enhance your summer tan or add warmth to winter skin.
What I think: This palette is so pretty! The colors are beautiful. I swirl a brush in it all over to apply to cheeks or use once of the lighter colors as a highlighter. I’ve even used it as eye shadow. It’s really versatile.
