Submerge yourself into the world of dreamy creamy aquatics this summer. Think shocking aqua’s and pearly blues.
Gina B Beauty Top-Tip: Use 2 shadows, a light & a dark. Pick a soft colour for the entire eye area up to the brow bone & then use the darker colour only up to your eye’s crease. And don’t go too high with your shadow line! Keep the rest of your makeup light, nude lips with gloss suits these strong eyes perfectly!

- Pretty Pinks
The Spring/Summer catwalks looked as though they were sending dainty dolls down the runway. Complete with Lolita lashes and creamy coral blush in circular strokes for a fairy tale finish.
Gina B Beauty Top-Tip:
Dark skin tones can carry off the more bright colours; go for plums, wines and reds.
Pale skin tones need more muted tones, so choose light brown beige, pink and coral colours.
Olive skins tones having a slight yellowish tinge will suit brownish reds, light browns and raisin coloured lipsticks.

The summer season sees smokey eyes in a new light by taking the opportunity to use black shimmers and gold tinted dust for a playful and flirty edge. The key is to keep the eye shape horizontal rather than giving into that retro slant.
Gina B Beauty Top-Tip: Smoky eyes went to new levels on the spring catwalks: go crazy with your kohl liner and add tablespoons of attitude to rock this glorious look. Blend that smoky shadow out just past the edge of your upper lid for a cool finish.

Summer 2012 was all about skin. Whether tanned and toned or bright and natural, it’s never been more important to take care of your complexion. Opt for a tinted moisturiser or a liquid foundation rather than a powder-based formula for a sheer finish with added glow. Make sure your lips are in tip-top condition for this look. This look really is a less-is-more statement, so leave locks loose and natural to complete the style.
Gina B Beauty Top-Tip: Highlight cheek and brow bones with a touch of Vaseline or highlighting product to give your skin some extra glow.
Lighten your eyelids a touch to brighten the whole look.
Invest in a brightening concealer to even skin-tone under eyes and brighten around your nose and Cupid’s bow.
