MY SUMMER BEAUTY ESSENTIALS

11 August 2015

I might have written about a few summer makeup looks.. but I always love a change in some parts of the makeup and today's post I'm adding a bit of a bronzey shimmery eyeshadow along with a different colour of eyeliner that I would usually wear into my list of summer beauty essentials..

LAURA MERCIER OIL-FREE FOUNDATION PRIMER

After trying out so many different primers, I find some primers really do block my pores and clog them and hence sometimes at the end of a day I find myself with more blackheads and pimples (!!), which has put me on to a mission to find the primer - and here I am, with this primer my skin feels smooth but my pores aren't clogged and also wouldn't make it even oilier than it would become.

LANEIGE BB CUSHION

The original BB Cushion, I would say in so many other posts where I can't emphasise enough of how great this BB Cushion is. It smells amazing, glides on the skin smoothly with the sponge that comes with it and you see the instant glow on your skin, where the scent of it makes you feel fresh. Might I also add that it's a tad cheaper than the Lâncome BB Cushion?

MAYBELLINE ERASER EYE CONCEALER

Hear ye hear ye! For those who struggle with dark under-eye circles and puffy eye bags, fret not, for this is a saviour for your under-eyes. With the twist and the sponge it just dispenses the right amount of product that you could just dab on to your under-eyes and blend them out with your ring finger and also a blending blush, if you would; and you're done! No more puffy eye bags or dark under eye circles!

MAC STUDIO FINISH CONCEALER DUO

After Grace [That Grace Girl] has raved about this concealer being one of the best, I had to try it out for myself and I was glad I got my hands on the concealer more than a month ago. Such texture, much coverage. It comes in a thick texture but you could just blend it out perfectly while it covers the nastiest of blemishes (no kidding).

CHARLOTTE TILBURY FILMSTAR BRONZE & GLOW

Oh, the perfect investment I've ever done! After reading and hearing so much about this from so many bloggers and as I also looked for an excuse to needing a new bronzer, I put my bet on it. And surprisingly it blows me away. The right shade for every skin tone, and the perfect highlighter anyone could get.

BENEFIT BENETINT LIP AND CHEEK STAIN

I haven't been talking about this product at all but I've been using it ever since I was 18 years old when I first discovered makeup not too long ago and I got this in the Benefit set and I adore it on my lips but I had now switched it for the cheeks as they come out as very sheer and a pop of pink would do good for any skin for a perfect summer day.

MAC PRO LONGWEAR WATERPROOF BROW SET

One of my favourite brow gels, it sets my eyebrow hairs on place while filling in any sparse gaps you could have on your brows; did I mention it's so waterproof that when I got soaked in the rain in Belfast that my makeup was still in place?! No, I don't think I did (maybe I did), but yes, it's one of the best that I will never stop repurchasing. A little goes a long way, even for eyebrow gels.

CLINIQUE CHUBBY STICK SHADOW TINT FOR EYES IN FULLER FUDGE

A beautiful brown and bronzey eyeshadow stick that comes with shimmer that will make any eye colour pop, it's the perfect summer essential for every lady. I don't usually wear a lot of eyeshadows but this is one of my favourite eyeshadow colours/sticks, as I really adore it and it's so handy that I could keep it in my handbag and touch up and make it smokier if I want to.

STILA STAY-ALL-DAY WATERPROOF LIQUID EYELINER IN MIDNIGHT

If you'd been a frequent reader on my site you'd know that this eyeliner is my favourite as I own a few shades but I love switching them up so on this post I'd added in the colour Midnight, as it's a subtle navy colour that would look just the perfect shade for everyone.

SHU UEMURA EYELASH CURLER

Of course, as an Asian my eyelashes don't curl up much but I find that with this eyelash curler it just helps the curl stay in place while I put on mascara so that I wouldn't poke myself in the eye, which has happened before.

MAYBELLINE BIG EYES WATERPROOF MASCARA

Ooh new mascara.. well, not really. I only discovered it this late and not sure where have I been, but this mascara is amazing; it volumises, lengthens and curls the lashes and they do not smudge at all. With the waterproof property I had tested it when I had a splash of water across my face and not one bit of smudge at all, nope. Comes with double ends so one side is for the upper lashes and the other, for your lower lashes for a fuller look.

SEPHORA CREAM LIP STAIN IN 01 ALWAYS RED

My favourite lip stain. It doesn't budge at all when you're having a meal but it would need a bit touch up during the day, and it's the perfect bold red for anyone. I adore this, it smells like vanilla and glides on the lips smoothly without leaving patches; my instincts told me to pick up two at once, so I did ha!
