One of the best things about summer (and stupid humidity and random thunderstorms and 95 degree temps) is that it gives me an excellent excuse to have crazy hair and wear less makeup.
I got this little Sonia Kashuk highlighter stick ($10.99, in Persian Sunset, above left) a few weeks ago and it was the first Sonia Kashuk item I’d bought except brushes in years. (Since I got the highlighter stick and liked it so much, I also picked up the liquid tint.)
This is such a timesaver. It has a little more shimmer than I usually prefer to wear, but it’s summer so what the hell. I put it on my eyes, put a bit on my cheekbones, put a little dab on my forehead and in the corners of my eyes too. Add some mascara and DONE. If I want to wear more makeup, I do all of the above, plus put some darker brown eyeshadow in my eyelid crease and along my lashline. The highlighter looks great combined with a good bronzer or a liquid/cream blush too.
