Here are a few tips to help your hair stay healthy and frizz-free under the scorching sun.

* To prevent your hair from getting fried, apply a product with UV filter like Kerastase Soleil Voile Protecteur before you go outdoors.

* Use a deep conditioning treatment at least twice a week and remember to comb through your hair after you applied it so the product is evenly distributed. Leave on for as long as you can. Rinse off with cold water to help seal the hair cuticles and add extra shine.

* Avoid further damage by limiting the use of curling irons and straightener in the summer and remember to always use a heat protection product like Toni & Guy’s Iron-It Heat Defence Spray before you curl/straighten your hair.

* Apply a small amount serum on the ends for extra shine. I like John Frieda Shine Shock Leave-on Perfecting Glosser for Brunettes.

* Never tie your hair up in the same spot. It will put extra strain on your hair and cause breakage.

* Dry your hair by squeezing out the excess water with a towel instead of rubbing it.

I have always loved The Body Shop Body Butter ($17.50) and it is the only lotion that I would use on my body religiously – I am usually too lazy to apply lotion after I shower *lol*

These babies come in cute, colorful tubs and they smell so good I literally want to eat them! The texture is also nice and thick and it does spread like butter. Plus it is non-greasy and sinks right into your skin, leaving it baby soft and moisturized for up to 24 hours!

There is currently a deal going on in the UK where you can get a 200ml tub at half price (£6 as supposed to £12) so run to your nearest counter and pick one up!

Flavors That I Love
* Brazil Nut
* Grapefruit
* Peach

This summer we are seeing blue eyeshadow paired with pink lips everywhere.

#1 Tropical Look

Taken from The Body Shop 2007 Summer Tropics collection, this look screams hot and is great for those with a tan or darker skin – light skinned girls should steer clear of this to avoid looking drag-queeny.

Eyes
* Rim your entire upper and lower lash line with a navy kohl pencil. Next, smudge a shimmery teal eyeshadow all over your upper and lower eyelid. Apply several coats of mascara.

Cheeks
* Add an extra pop of color by sweeping a bright pink color on your apples.

Lips
* With color this bright, you definitely need to start out with moisturized lips. Next, whip out your lip liner for a little definition and apply a shimmery hot pink or magenta lip gloss onto your lips.

#2 Icy Look

For a more understated look, try Shiseido Maquillage’s 2007 Summer collection which is better suited to those with pale skin.

Eyes
* Sweep a baby blue or sky blue eyeshadow all over your upper and lower eyelid. Line your lower inner rim with a white pencil. Finish the look by curling your lashes and applying several coats of mascara.

Cheeks
* Define your cheekbones with just a hint of peachy blush.

Lips
* Slick on a medium pink lip gloss.

Move over MAC, Barry M Fine Glitter Dust and Dazzle Dust are like the hottest thing right now!

Used by celebs like Jamelia, Christina Aguilera and Girls Aloud, these loose powder eyeshadows are available only in the UK and are comparable, if not better, to MAC’s pigments and glitters. They come in a little glass jar with a black plastic lid just like MAC Fluidlines, only smaller in size. There are a total of over 60 gorgeous colors to choose from, which are all shimmery and highly pigmented. The Dazzle Dusts are just like MAC Pigments while the Glitter Dusts are the same but mixed with tiny pieces of glitter. They are both uber fine, smooth and totally non-gritty. Plus they are super easy to blend and stay on for hours too! I *love* wearing these when I go clubbing – they just make my eyes sparkle!

I currently own the following five colors and I am definitely going to get more:



From Left to Right: Chocolate, Old Gold, Pale Purple, Purple and Blue Grey
