Flush away those February blues!

As much as I am aware its just turned February, however, this gives me plenty of time to prepare for summer! There is plenty I'd love to invest in, so I thought I'd share!

This is such a pretty orange colour. I'm desperate to wear orange this summer, although wearing it may be a different matter! Its such a bold & unusual colour for make-up, but maybe that's what I want for '12? What's lovely with this unusual but amazing shade, is you can apply it bold as brass, or apply this sheer, with a slick of gloss! I think this would go perfectly with a pop of bold, statement coloured eye liner, neutral bare face & this amazing burst of orange!
I've had my eye on this little rub beauty for some time, its a beautiful shade for a pop of colour to your cheeks, whether its something bright you're wanting, or a subtle flush of colour. This colour is so versatile, & not just for summer!
As I browsed eagerly through MAC's website, I spotted this baby! Its a ombre blush, containing pink & purple. You can swirl these pretty colours together, heavily or softly, however you desire or sweep your brush in one direction & apply to your face for a blush 7 contour effect. The colours are so different to what you would normally pick up as a blush, so this is perfect for summer!
 As I have already tried their sample, I am in love! This product totally blurs out you imperfections & blemishes to create a lovely, neutral finish to your skin. As we all know & have experienced; there is nothing worse than being out in the buring sun, & having a full face of make up on. MELT! So, this summer, I have opted to wear a light coverage of foundation, that will give me the coverage I need, without being caked in many amounts of product!
This summer, I have already decided I want to keep a part of my make up bold & bright & the rest to be very neutral. So, what;s better than the Naked Palette?! I've wanted to get my hand son this for awhile, so this is perfect! I can create subtle looks, as well as keeping it handy for last minute nights, to swiftly create a smokey look.
From the look of my wishlist so far, this won't be cheap! So, this palette is perfect! All my needed nudes to create a look I desire!
How beautiful is this little beauty for a pop of colour. Keep your face neutral, with a thick swipe of this amazing blue liner, for a bright & beautiful statement look!

So, that's my summer wants so far!
I know its awhile away yet, but I can't help wishing, & keeping it to myself!

Any of you have any summer wants?

Thank you!
