Now that summer unofficially begins this weekend, it’s time to start thinking about our summer makeup looks.   I am head over heels loving this American Beauty Coral Treasures collection, and the fact that their spokewoman for the line is Ashley Judd and she is 40 just is icing on the cake!

The eyeshadow duo in #04 Sunny Honey, may not look like it here, but the color on the left is a beautiful soft golden shade and the color on the right is a soft medium bronze.   These both have a slight shimmer, the kind of shimmer women over 40 can wear, which makes me happy!  Price is $14.50 for duo

Besides loving the color of this Pretty Luminous Brightening Cheek Color, I love the brush.   Typically when brushes are in compacts, they’re about half the size of this one and the bristles on this one are very soft too so you can actually use this brush.  The color is a soft coral that has a very minimal amount of shimmer,  just enough to give you that glow without screaming GLOW!  $17.50 for the cheek color

The lip colors are again in soft coral and deeper coral shades.  

#07 Spice So Nice is in the Enduring Beauty Longwear Lipcolor formula. $12.50

The Pretty Glossy Luscious Lipshine is in #04 Peach Freeze

This is a soft coral/peach with some rose tone to it as well.  I love the texture – not heavy, but offers color, not just a wash of color.  $12.50

To finish off the Coral Treasures look, line your eyes with the Mocha Ultra Easy Automatic Eyeliner $11.00.  Top your lashes with Double Lush Mascara Plus Primer $12.50 and deepen  your glow with Pretty Bronze Bronzing Powder in Sun Chic for $17.50

When I applied these colors to my face I asked my husband if he liked what I was wearing for makeup, and he said “yes, it really looks nice on you – it gives you a nice glow – you look younger”.    After I fell off  the chair, I of course was smitten!  (With him and the makeup!)

This Coral Treasures collection is available in June at Kohls Department Stores or kohls.com
