Summer is here and with it comes sunbathing in your local pool’s “splash zone” and roasting in the stands at the baseball stadium. Will your makeup stand up? Celebrity makeup artist Brett Freedman, shares his top summer tips and beauty products to keep us looking our best in the summer heat.

Though the summer is almost over, we just cannot let go of two of our most cherished summer beauty basics. NARS Portobello (matte ecru and soft matte mushroom) eye shadow and Supervixen (sheer sparkling mauve) lip gloss have treated us like a princess from the moment they descended into our makeup bag and we still love them. These sultry neutrals are our daily staples and are perfect for day or evening. The great news is that they are still available and will continue to be part of the NARS family.
We are just not ready to move into the darker, more mysterious colours of fall. Are you? Fight fall. Stay summerlicious.
Available at Holt Renfrew, Nordstrom and Sephora

The softness of these shadows is just breathtaking.
Success Lipstick (burnt sienna)
Manhunt Lipstick (sheer poppy red)
Dolce Vita Lip Gloss (dusty rose)
Greek Holiday Lip Gloss (sparkling pink sand)
Belle de Jour Velvet Matte Lip Pencil (nude beige)
I am excited to see bold lips for Spring – I’m not a fan of the nude lip of me.
Due to the success of classics Dolce Vita and Belle de Jour, NARS have reinvented these colours in new textures; the dusty rose hue of Dolce Vita is given a high shine brilliance in a gloss formulation and Belle de Jour’s nude beige is modernized in a seamless matte texture.
Orgasm The Multiple (peachy pink with shimmer)
I was so looking forward to trying this item as Orgasm is my fav blush colour…but a friend begged for my sample and I am too nice so gave it to her. How silly was I?

The NARS Holiday Collection is truly stunning with rich shades of violet, plum, and gold for eyes, golden apricot for cheeks, and gleaming crimson tones for lips. Shimmering, ruby nails complete this collection – there really is a little something for everyone.
I think the Violetta Duo can carry me through into Spring quite nicely.
Luster Blush (sheer golden apricot)
Orgasm will always been my No. 1 favourite blush colour, but this could definitely be my second.
Viridiana Lipstick (rich burgundy)
Rose Gitane Lip Gloss (sheer sangria)
Bad Education Lip Gloss (sheer crimson red)
I am not good with a solid, deep colour so these sheer glosses are absolutely perfect!
Saratoga Nail Polish (ruby red with shimmer)
I think I am going to have to grab a bottle of this and paint my toes for my Florida vacation.
