Last night was the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion show and this morning, beauty and makeup blogs are all abuzz with how to recreate the looks.

Step 2: Conceal any blemishes and even out skin tone using BH Cosmetic’s Jumbo Concealer Pencil and Liquid Foundation.

Step 3: Choose the darkest brown and any shade of lighter brown from BH Cosmetic’s 28 Neutral Color Palette to softly line the eye on top and bottom. Use the darker shadow to lightly line the top and the lighter brown shade for the bottom. Smudge out.

Beauty Tips for Effortless Summer Makeup + CONTEST (closed)!

Makeup should be changed every season. However, your beauty transition can be difficult when you don’t know the products you need to create a fresh and effortless summer look. Don’t worry, though – BH has got you covered! Here are our beauty tips for this season:

EYES

Brighter shades of eye shadow are vital to creating the perfect summer look. Instead of wearing darker shades such as gray or brown on your lids, opt for brighter neon colors such as neon green or purple. Just a swipe across your lids is more than enough to make your eyes pop. Our BH Party Girl Palette offers 40 bright eye shadows that you can use to brighten your lids.

LIPS

While darker lipsticks and liners are often popular in the cooler months, shinier, more colorful glosses, lipsticks and lip liners truly make a statement in the warmer months. Bright pinks and lighter colored lipsticks are ideal for balancing out a nice summer tan or making your skin appear brighter after the cooler months. However, even when you take a dip in the pool, you still want your makeup to look flawless. Our Waterproof Lip Liners come in a variety of shades for summer.

FACE

During the summer, it can get hot enough to make your makeup run, and sweat and oil can cause your makeup to smudge and look tired. However, when you make Anti-Shine Serum and makeup primer part of your summer makeup routine, you can keep your makeup on your face! Anti-Shine Serum and primer absorbs oil on your face and creates a smooth, matte surface that is ideal for makeup application. Our Anti-Shine Serum is ideal for all skin types and makes makeup application a breeze.

This Summer, switch your heavier makeup for brighter, lighter makeup, so you can look fresh and ready for anything all summer long!
