Caryl Baker Southwestern Beauty collection

Southwestern Beauty from Caryl Baker for Summer 2013:

Country Strong eye colours:  vibrant to look at but leave a natural, sheer finish.


Desert Darlings:  City Slickers lip gloss are sheer colour plus super shine and contain argan oil to moisturize dry, chapped lips.


Lazy Daze: Sun baked Bronzer is soft and smooth powder that gives a glow with a smooth natural sun kissed finish.


Simply put, this collection reminds me of an Arizona sky and art shows  or outdoor markets that feature art with lots of turquoise and coral, influenced by the landscape.  Aztec-ish perhaps…..

This is the collection you wear with your favorite denim.  What you wear when you want to look pulled together but not overly ‘done.’ It’s fresh and up to date without being pretentious and heavy.

I adore this collection and the quality of Caryl Baker products is comparable to MAC (in my opinion).  I’ve spoken on these products in other blog posts/videos.  Another plus is that this is a Canadian brand so you are sure to have access to a boutique!  This collection is most definitely swatch worthy so be sure to take a look.
