Summer Lovin'

Since junior high, summer has always been your favorite time of year. Sure, you haven't had a three-month break in years, but there are still plenty of things to look forward to. Beach barbecues. Family trips. And fun, new makeup to help you turn up the heat.


Lei Chic
Sun Bliss
DiorSkin Nude Tan Healthy Glow Enhancing Powder is perfect for those lazy days on the beach (or just to make everyone think you were there). Blend the colors for an all-over glow, then highlight your browbone and cheekbones with the shimmery pink shade. Sweep the deep brown in your crease for natural definition.
$55, Neiman Marcus, Ala Moana Center.
Lei Chic Scent of a (Hot) Woman
You may not look like a supermodel, but at least you can smell like one with Victoria's Secret "Love is Heavenly" Eau de Parfum. Spritz on a refreshing blend of mandarin flowers, orange zest, water lily, freesia and sandalwood; slightly floral with a musky undertone.
$42 for 1 oz., $52 for 2.5 oz., Victoria's Secret, Ala Moana Center and Kalakaua Ave.
Lei Chic Bold Rush
Throw this tiny Sephora Collection Retractable Kabuki Brush in your purse and jet out the door. Contour cheekbones, apply blush, and erase shine, all on the go. Plus, the tangerine hue is always super fun.
$20, Sephora, Ala Moana Center, Pearlridge Center and Kalakaua Ave.
Lei Chic Bright Lipped
Aveda Nourish-Mint Smoothing Lip Color in Star Coral gives you that perfect "I just ate an orange popsicle" look. We like applying it with our finger for a more natural stain, then finishing with a swipe of lip balm.
$16, Hoala Salon and Spa, Ala Moana Center.
Lei Chic In Good Prime
When it comes to glowy skin, prime is of the essence. This lightweight Estee Lauder Matte Perfecting Primer brightens and smoothes under makeup, while green tea and vitamin E nourish the skin. Oilier gals may need a quick touch up at lunchtime.
$32, all Macy's stores. Note: Macy's in Kahala Mall only has one left in stock.
Lei Chic Coming Soon
We love the trendy nautical stripes of M.A.C's limited edition "Hey, Sailor!" collection. Don't be intimidated by M.A.C Suntints SPF 20 Liquid Lip Balm in Abalone. On your kisser, the bright pink hue takes on a more subtle sheen.
$16, available May 24 at M.A.C, Ala Moana Center and Pearlridge Center.
