The Makeup Line that Contains Every Shade of Summer

After a long winter of darkness (both outside and in my makeup routine) I'm ready for summer makeup collections full of light pastel washes and punchy brights. Enter Topshop Beauty's summer 2014 makeup collection and I'm head over heels in love with each and every piece. Topshop's new Sheer Lips, Lip Varnish and Lip Paints were inspired by the iconic lips of model Kate Moss (the perfect match for all the Kate Moss for Topshop fashions perhaps?). And while the lip colors are nothing short of wow-worthy in bold colors and both matte and glossy finishes, the pastel nail polishes in the summer makeup collection are perfectly understated. The Best part? Every piece is under $25. I'm making a vow right here and now to forsake pricey department store makeup (well, at least for now) and head straight to the mall for my summer beauty look.   read more
