Summer is my favourite season as is much the same with many of you too, even though today the sun isn’t out, I still love to add a pop of bright shades into my makeup routine. I feel it adds fun and happiness into a cloudy day, and reminds everyone that summer is on its way!
My summer makeup essentials… Well, I wanted to concentrate on the ‘accessories’ of makeup, not the base so much, so I would like to start by saying that I am making the most of my Sleek face palette which includes a contour, blush in the shade Rose Gold and one of my favourites, the highlighter. I’ve actually nearly finished the highlighter which I guess shows how much I love it. Another popular one is the contour which I have recently fallen in love for, this product shows off my natural shadowing well and makes the face look thinner which we all love throughout summer! I used to swear by the blush in this palette but I think I may have over used it if you get what I mean, I don’t really experiment with blushes so items to stay with the same but seriously don’t get me wrong I love the pigment in the product and I love the summery glow it gives, I just think after years of using this I’m a little bored.
The maybelline sensational mascara, I guess I could let the product talk for itself, it really is sensational, I find that this extends my lashes whilst not making me look like I have giant spiders on my lids (ooo! Even writing that makes me shiver!).
I think lipsticks are the most important essentials for summer, so I have four… Okay I couldn’t choose just one! Firstly I got this Avon lipstick in the shade pink, a few years ago and it always comes out every summer! I am in love with its matte gold packaging it makes it feel so much more high end, when actually it’s an affordable price. I would say It’s a day lipstick to spice up an outfit as it’s not highly pigmented but it give a medium tint of a light berry pink with lots of gold shimmer! Which yes, when I saw it in the catalogue I thought that sounds so weird but no it’s the complete opposite!
A very, and I mean very summery lipstick next and it’s the Maybelline lipstick in hot plum 906. Wow! Just wow! How bright is this, every time I look at it I automatically think Summer. I’m imagining a basic face makeup, bronzey smoky eye and pink lip is going to be big this year and I’m going to defiantly try and make this work!
So the next two lipsticks are very similar but I have a high end and a dupe of It and it’s the MAC lipstick in lovelorn and the dupe being the Kate moss lipstick in 101 rossetto which are both light pinks which medium pigmentation. The Lovelorn is very moisturising and leaves your lips slightly sheen whilst the Rossetto tends to dry your lips if you don’t use a lip balm underneigh but leaves a matte finish.
Next is one of my favourite brands, Ted baker I love ever product from Ted Baker clothes, and makeup! So a summery product I’ll be using is the gorgeous highlighting kit which Is quite shimmery and gives a summer glow. I love that it comes with a mirror as when I’m traveling I can use that as a mirror also this can double as a blush which is always handy!
I hope you are all getting ready and excited for summer
