Summer Makeup Essentials

Hi fam!

So, during the summer I like my skin looking especially bronzed and glowing.
There are various ways I try and make this happen. Other than drinking tons of water, and spending some some extra time in the sun(with sunscreen on)- using the right makeup really helps me achieve that sun-kissed look.
Here are the products I absolutely swear by and recommend to you for the summer:

BECCA’s Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation ($53):
I love this foundation because it is full coverage and gives my skin a beautiful and natural glow. The foundation also has a super fluid consistency which doesn’t make my face look cakey at all. Bonus!

BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector Opal Glow on the Go Set($24):
Clearly, I am obsessed with BECCA. But honestly, the kind of glow you get from their highlighters is this GORGEOUS warm golden and natural one! Try it for yourself to believe me. I prefer the liquid highlighter over the powder one for a night time look just because it has an extra sparkle.
*Head to my Instagram page for swatches of these BECCA products. 

TARTE’s Aquacealer concealer($31):
This concealer blends extremely well with the BECCA foundation I listed above. Again, it is full coverage and hides dark circles and blemishes well without requiring too much product.

NARS’s Blush/Bronzer Duo($30):
This palette adds the perfect amount of colour to your face, and there are various shades you can choose from, so make sure to get one that matches your skin tone best. It is also the perfect size and I love all things convenient.

MERCELLE’s Translucent powder($15):
So important to powder down your face after applying concealer and foundation, and I love this product because it prevents any creasing without making my face look matte at all. I live for the dewy look.

SEPHORA’s Outrageous Curl($16):
The wand on this mascara literally is the most perfect one. It provides my lashes with the perfect lift, while the product itself adds just the right amount of volume without looking unnatural.

NYX Cosmetic’s Tinted Brow Mascara($7):
Super quick application for everyday use, and not only does it fill in my brows well, but also holds them in place!

SEPHORA’s Outrageous Effect Volume Lip Gloss($15):
Makes your lips look a little plumper, but also adds a beautiful gloss to them. Love the colour! Completes your whole look for the day.

Well, that concludes my top picks for this season. Hope you ladies give them a try, let me know your thoughts after! I’d love to hear from you. Just fill out the contact form below!
