Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...and those of us holding the mascara wand.

After two decades of covering the beauty industry, I've come to learn what makes it so alluring. Finding the perfect shade of makeup to match your skin tone, adding a swipe of eyeliner to give your tired eyes a lift, discovering an innovative new product line, or indulging in a totally luxurious spa treatment. My experiences have been documented in magazines, newspapers and websites worldwide. I've tested newly formulated products in the lab, explored hair removal options, shopped for lipstick, added shine to my hair and succumbed to massage marathons--all in the name of beauty. I've written press releases, hosted makeover events and co-authored a Do-It-Yourself Beauty book (Alloy). On this blog, I write about products and services that I come across every day as well as those that have been provided by publicists or the companies that make them. Either way, I write what I think. I hope to share some of my insights--and bring you the latest, greatest beauty news right here. Join me in the quest to find all things pretty.

summer makeup look, from celeb makeup artist Mally Roncal

Famous for creating gorgeous “look at me” eyes, style-maker and celebrity makeup artist Mally Roncal (Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Angelina Jolie, Rihanna, Mariska Hargitay are fans) brings you expert picks for sultry summer eyes – and cheeks, and lips!

Mally's advice for an easy beach-bound makeup look: Slather on the SPF everywhere! Curl your lashes and coat with waterproof mascara to avoid runaway eye makeup. Give definition to your face with a waterproof brow pencil. Peach is the new pink and that goes double for lip gloss…try Mally Beauty Lip Gloss in Be a Peach or Mally Beauty High Shine Liquid Lipstick in Summer Peach. Don’t skip concealer or you’ll look tired. Mally Beauty Cancellation Conditioning Concealer SPF 25 is the perfect summertime option.

I tried Be a Peach and love it. It's the perfect beachy shade in a super-smoothing texture. I have yet to leave home without it this summer.

Molly also recommends using VISINE® Soothing Wipes as a great product to use at the end of the day. Before you wash your face, gently remove eye makeup (even stubborn waterproof mascara!) with VISINE® Soothing Wipes. Store them in the fridge for an extra-cool, refreshing treat. They really revive tired eyes and feel refreshing after a long day outdoors. They're are also great to stash in your bag for all your summer weekend getaways.
