Eyeliner: Anything that doesn’t smudge
Blush: Anything! I’m not a big blush wearer, but I like it in the summer for a “fresh” look.
Lipstick/gloss: Anything sparkly, but I try to avoid reds and berries unless it’s for a night out.

Best eyeliners: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils, love them. But if I’m doing some serious swimming I use MAC paintpots as liners because they’re acrylic (waterproof.)

Best Lipstick/Gloss: ERM…. I got MAC Dazzle Glass in Hi-Falutin’ which is fun. And MAybelline Lip Stain in 05 In The Buff.

MAC Liquid Lasts – lasts forever but there are known to be hard to take off but should be fine if you have an oil-based makeup remover.

For pencil, try Urban Decay Liners or Make Up Forever Aqua Eyes.

Eyeliners: Anything blue/teal/green that will make the eyes pop and the colors go so well with corals and oranges.
Blushes: Anything corally/orangy/red. For me, I find that I always gravitate towards Taj Mahal and Turkish Red from NARS in the summer. I usually wear them on top of some bronzing powders.
Lipsticks: I have a stash of l/s that I keep only for summer because they look way better with tanned skin; From MAC Savory, Unflappable, Sunsational, Jazzed, and the like (I tend to like the yellower/orangier/corallier (sp?) type of colors)
Lipglossses: Anything yellow/orange/bronzy/red/coral. Can’t remember all the names but all are MAC
