On Wednesday, Roy Karrell was balancing his personal checkbook and couldn't keep track of all the zeros in front of the decimal point. That was after paying cash for a Rolls-Royce Corniche on Monday morning and buying a Malibu estate next to Barbra Streisand's that afternoon. He admits it: He's a very rich man. But just since last Friday. That's when he sold his Beverly Hills firm, Visage Beaute Cosmetics, to New York's Revlon Inc.

THE FACE OF summer has been liberated. There's no pressure to play up eyes or lips or to be bronze all over. Natural is the message; makeup is the medium. Colors are toned down, delicate, often with a mere hint of metallic sheen. The artificial-looking, heavy-metal finish that was prevalent in 1987 has become a subtle shimmer. Bronzes, golds and silvers are used only to "warm" the skin. Francine Stessel of Trucco Cosmetics calls these low-key metallics "an accessory for lightly tanned skin."
