Summer Makeup Bag*

My Summer Makeup Bag

Who else feels like these types of posts actually reflect the summer we’ve been having in the UK recently. I must say even though I’m a summer baby I much prefer the Autumn and Winter. One thing I do love about summer is that you can bring out those blinding highlights, bronze eyes and bright lipsticks 🙂 I wanted to share with you the contents of my makeup bag this summer….

Pixi Beauty Glow Mist

This is an absolute must have for me!! I discovered this about a month or so ago and I haven’t put it down since. You can use it before applying your makeup, setting your makeup and to spritz your face throughout the day too. I love having a dewy complexion and one that looks glowy especially during this time of the year.  What I love the most about this is that it’s infused with aloe vera, propolis and fruit extracts. Propolis and aloe vera are so good for the skin and help to even out the skin tone too…

Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow 

This wouldn’t be a summer staples post without the queen’s products in it would it? When I mention the Queen you all know who I mean right. Charlotte Tilbury has some of the most luxurious products on the market and one of my favourites for the summer is the Wonder Glow Primer.  I absolutely love how this makes your skin look, you can instantly see a difference the moment you apply it. Your skin is glowing before and after applying your makeup. One little tip I can give you is apply the most tiniest bit on your cheekbones and use it as a liquid highlighter too…

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation

Now I have to admit I wasn’t the happiest with this foundation when I first started wearing it. I couldn’t make it work for me and I didn’t know why.  However when I did start wearing this my skin tone was uneven, I had lots of blemishes and texture on my face and I felt like it highlighted that even more. It’s also a demi-matte foundation and it’s also a medium coverage product. I love full coverage foundations and this is build-able so you can apply as little or as much as you need. I have also noticed a HUGE difference in my skin after changing up my skincare routine and find this foundation looks so much better on my skin NOW than it did THEN…

Charlotte Tilbury Beachstick 

During the summer I do like to apply more products to my base and this includes blusher in a stick form. I’m not a huge fan of blush and this goes for powders too. However during the summer I will make it an exception to wear some more products that will make me look a lot more healthy looking.  I absolutely love the Charlotte Tilbury Beachstick in the shade Moon Beach. I have talked about this product before on my blog. Moon Beach is the most gorgeous peachy shade I’ve ever seen and complements a lot of my peach themed products. It also has a little sparkle to it too, this looks gorgeous once you see it on application. This is the only beach stick I own and this encourages me to try out more of Charlotte’s products like this..

Huda Beauty Coral Obsessions

I am all for bright eyeshadow looks during the summer. I’m so used to a bronze eye but when I feel like doing somethign different I love to use tones like the shadows in this mini palette from Huda Beauty. This is the Coral Obsessions and OMG this palette is so so gorgeous. It has a mix of pinks, yellows, oranges and coral shades. I must have thousands of shades like this in other palettes but what I like about this is that these types of shadows are all together in one place. They blend so easily, the pigment is great and they look fantastic on the eyes too. I’ve inserted a photo of swatches from the Coral Obsessions below..

Swatches from T-B are row 1, row 2 and row 3 (Left to Right of the Palette)

Colourpop Super Shock Shadows

Colourpop have some of the most nicest shadows on the market, in my opinion!! They are so pigmented, they look gorgeous on the eyes, they have a variety of shades and there affordable 🙂 The quality of the super shock shadows are absolutely amazing. When you see the price of these you would easily think they would cost that little bit more because the colour pay off is fantastic…

 I have a HUGE selection of these single shadows but some of my favourites include the shades Telepathy and Gameface! Telepathy is the gold one in the photo and Gameface is the orange toned one. You can apply these with brushes or your finger. You can also use these dry or wet. I must say using them dry is the better out of the two because you can see it’s real pigment. I also prefer to use these all over the lid when you want to do a really quick easy makeup look. I also like to sue these as lid toppers over a matte eye look too. I highly recommend Colourpop as a brand too…

Makeup Forever Pro Fusion Bronze

 I had never tried Makeup Forever products until I picked up this bronzer around the time of my birthday last month. I picked up the shade Honey from Debenhams. I had seen lots of their products on Instagram and loved the look of their bronzers. I have an oily/combo skin type and find this bronzer is the ‘perfect’ shade for me. It just gives me that skinkissed look without being naturally tanned. I never use to use a lot of bronzer but now I’ve discovered this its a must have!! I definitely will carry this into my winter makeup routine too…

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Micro Powder

Now if your a regular on my socials you know how much I love these powders for setting my makeup. The airbrush micro powder comes in 3 shades and I purchase the medium 2 shade. Your makeup after applying this looks so gorgeous and you only need the tiniest amount. Whichever brush you use to set your makeup it can pick up the pigment very quickly so you need to tap off the excess. This powder is very finely milled too. I also use a loose powder on my face before using this. I primarily use the micro powder as a finishing powder…

Urban Decay Beached Palette

Now if this isn’t the best summer themed makeup product I don’t know what is!! I seen the PR package for this over on youtube and it was so lovely. I absolutely loved the palm tree design for this collection. I really wanted to pick up the bronzers in this collection too but settled for the eyeshadow palette. The BEACHED eyeshadow palette comes with 8 shades and a mirror too. I think the colours in this palette are so beautiful, the mattes blend so nicely, the metallic shades are stunning and most of all those BLUES are insane!! You need to get a hold of this palette if you haven’t already as its simply the most nicest palette I’ve seen this summer 🙂 I’ve inserted a photo os some swatches below for you…

Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips/ Matte Revolution

Of course you need a bright lipstick for the summer right. You all know how much of  a lipstick hoarder I am and to have quite the selection of Charlotte Tilbury ones comes as an added bonus! 

Charlotte’s lipstick formula is one of my favourites and if there was only one lipstick I would wear everyday if would be hers. A shade I wear a lot during the summer is Miranda May. I also love the shade Sexy Sienna too 🙂 Charlotte’s Hot Lips lipsticks have been created with some celebrities and Miranda May was created with Miranda Kerr. I highly recommend Charlotte’s lipsticks if your on the hunt for a comfortable, pigmented and quality lipstick..

Pixi Beauty Glowy-Gossamer Duos*

I absolutely love a blinding highlighter any time of the year and feel summer is the most perfect time to highlight to the gods right!! Pixi Beauty recently launched their highlighter duos and there so stunning. The pigment on these is amazing. I am so surprised at the quality of these and how good they look on the complexion. I was kindly gifted these from Pixi Beauty(Thank you loves!) and there definitely a summer staple…

Tanya Burr Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lipstick*

During the summer I either wear a bullet lipstick or a liquid lipstick. I love to wear glosses over them too. One shade I absolutely love whether it’s summer or not is Martha Moo. Tanya named this product after her dog Martha. It’s the most nicest darker shade of a nude I’ve seen in a while. Even though Tanya’s collection of matte lips have been out for some time I always find myself reaching for this over any other matte liquid lipstick I own. I have always loved Tanya’s cosmetics line and think she is creating some new collections for us too so keep your eyes peeled for that…
