Summer Makeup Must Haves

Summer makeup

I find that summer is such a fun time of the year, days are longer, the weather is warmer, the clothes are more colourful and awesome and the sun shines brighter.
Having longer days and warm weather does make me want to be out an about more, (I basically hibernate in winter, I can’t take the cold). But that also means my skin tends to get tanned and when that happens I love changing up my makeup game for warmer and bronzier tones.

I love including the Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow into my makeup routine. I use it as a primer and it just gives the perfect base and also makes your skin look glowier, I´m a big fan.

Its no secret that I have totally fallen in love with cushion blush since spring started, I love the juicy and plump finish it gives to the cheaks. Im still using my Lancome Cushion Blush but I have also recently discovered the Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge, it has a similar finish to the Lancome cushion blush. I think I slightly prefer the Lancome blush but this one is a great option to take on holiday as the packaging is slimmer, plus you can also use it on your lips.

I am a sucker for neutral eye-shadows, but in summer and set it up a notch and add gold and bronzy tones. I love to use this Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palettein The Golden Goddess. It is quite an expensive palette but the actual formula is amazing, it lasts all day and there is no fallout,

I love using liquid highlighters all year round, I much prefer the finish. Powder highlighters often look a bit powdery and I feel like they don’t last as long on the skin. Whilst in autumn/winter I normally using a pink base highlighter and change it up for a golden highlighter as soon as my skin tans slightly. My favourite by far has to be the Benefit Sun Beam, its so easy to apply and it looks amazing specially on bronzed skin.

And last but not least, would it really be summer without a bronzer? Well, I do use bronzer during the entire year, but I do tend to use slightly shimmery bronzers during summer. My favourite bronzer of all time has to be this Chanel bronzer pictures but unfortunately it was part of their limited edition summer collection a few years ago. Charlotte Tilbury’s Filmstar Bronze and Glow bronzer is an amazing pick for summer, Guearlain make amazing bronzers but I think this year I will be trying out the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy GlowLuminous Colour lets hope I fall in love with it because they are quite pricey.

Let me know what makeup products you can live without during summer!

  5. Essentials <3


  6. I really need to add some CT products into my collection. And yes to Sunbeam, it was my first highlighter and I actually finished it!

  7. I love the Chanel bronzer !

  8. I feel like cream textures are the way to go during the summer. The Cushion Blush from Lancome sounds so like a treat! I hadn't heard of it.

    I struggled with my Bobbi Brown pot rouge, but I haven't touched it in so long that it might be worth testing it again. I'd quite like to try more cream blushers, but I want something quite wet in texture.

  13. Sun Beam looks like such a great product! Other than sunscreen (lol, I'm that person), in the summer I can't live without my powder foundation to dust away sweat and shine.
