Summer Series | Merle Norman Cosmetics

There's nothing like breathing new life into your makeup collection with fresh pops of color and light formulas that are perfect for summer.  Merle Norman's summer collection provides everything you need for a summer-inspired look and must-haves you'll love all-year round.  Let's take a look at this stunning collection.

Left | Miami Spice   Right | So Azuring

Eyeshadow Trios in Miami Spice & So Azuring  |  These two trios combine neutrals and eye-catching color which to me, is the best of both worlds.  They are not "in your face" palettes you'll never wear again. They are tastefully put together to enhance and lighten your look so you'l want to wear them over and over.  The formulas are buttery soft and blendable so you can get that summer look effortlessly.  Each trio features one luminous and two matte shadows.

Miami Spice  |  Nearly Nude (matte), Marigold (luminous), Sun Kisser (matte)
So Azuring  |  Sunshine (matte), Toasted Coconut (luminous), Turquoise (matte)

Bronzer in Sunny Side  |  This bronzer is part of the permanent collection and definitely something I would reach for in any season.  It's a flattering shade that gives just the right amount of color on my light skin.  It has a slight luminosity so you won't get a flat, muddy finish.  The super-micronized pigments reflect light giving you a natural, healthy glow.  You can build it up if needed, but I love how a light touch applies just the right amount.  It's a very neutral bronzer that will suit multiple skintones.

Blush in Precious Pink  |  This is another all-season must-have!  Precious Pink gives a beautiful flush on the cheeks that pairs beautifully with vibrant or neutral eye looks.  It's incredibly pigmented so a light hand is all you need for this blush.  Merle Norman's Lasting Cheek Colors come in a wide range of gorgeous shades that will keep you blushing all day long - no color fading here.  They come with a mirror and brush in the compact so they're perfect for all your summer trips too!

Eye Pencils in Peacock & Ocean Blue  |  These are definitely standouts in the collection for me.  I love wearing all my neutral palettes in the summer and reaching for pops of colors like these.  They are super creamy and easy to apply.  Also, each liner has a smudger on the opposite end to make blending a breeze.  I'm a huge fan of these shades this time of year.  They just look so aquatic and "mermaid-esque" that it puts a smile on my face every time I wear them!  They are completely smudge-proof too, I've tested them on the rainiest days and they wore like a dream.

Lip Glazes in Cherry Crush, Scrumptious & Carefree  |  "These are a few of my favorite things!"  Yes it's true.  I love a sheer, light-weight lip color that requires nothing more than swiping on my lips.  These lip glazes provide color, shine and hydration all in a silky, effortless formula.  There's something for everyone in this collection whether you prefer a nude, subtle color, or a beautiful sheer red hue.  Carefree has a stunning shimmer that's perfect for summertime.  This shade is limited edition so grab it while you can!
