SUMMER MAKEUP MUST-HAVES

Sunday, June 8, 2014



These are my makeup must-haves for this summer and I'm going to bring them with me on vacation too. If you want to know why keep on reading...

You don't want to wear a heavy foundation in the summer, because that's just going to melt right off your face, ecpecially if you live in an area that get's really hot in the summer! This BB Cream is very cool. When you squeeze the product out of the tube is comes out white with small beads in it. Then when you start rubbing it into your skin, it turns skincolored and blends into your skin so nicely. It's a light "foundation" that claims to prime, perfect, hydrate and correct the skin. Perfect lightweight BB cream for the hot summer weather.

If you have dry skin or don't want to wear powder blush during the summer, this cream stick blush is just for you. It's a lovely rose color and applies so easily on the cheeks with a brush or even your fingers and it stays on pretty much all day.

Perfect product for getting moisturized, juicy, pink lips. This is not a long lasting product though, you kinda use it like a tinted lip balm, it's just more glossy and the color stays on a bit longer, so something in between a lipstick and a tinted lip balm. Great for hot weather, where you don't want to wear anything to heavy on the lips.

Light weight concealer that stays on for most of the day, great at giving you a fresh looking face.

For vacations or travelling in general, it's easiest to just bring a palette or a trio like I'm going to, so you don't have tons of eyeshadow laying around. This one is great for all eyecolors, it has a light pinkish toned eyeshadow, that looks great on the lid and on the brow bone. Then there is a dark brown color with a bit of shimmer, this color is great for smoking out the eyes, if you want to go for an evening look. The last color is a muted purple shade, with a bit of a sheen, this is great for all over the lid too or in the crease for some definition.

Depending on your eyecolor you could always bring an accent color. I'm choosing a green eyeshadow, because I like that with my green eyes. For green eyes, your could also bring a bright purple eyeshadow. For blue eyes, a redish, copper, bronzed eyeshadow. For brown eyes, blue & turguoise are great colors.

To brighten up your eyes and make them look bigger, use a nude eyeliner for the waterline. I love this trick and looks great if you are going for a youthful, fresh look.

You gotta have some mascara with you to get those long lashes. My all time favorite mascara is this one, so i'm definitely going to bring this on vacation! It's great at giving your lashes volume and stays on all day! It comes in a waterproof formula too.

If you want that nice sunkissed, bronzed glow, this is the product for you. If you have really fair skin, I don't think this would work that well though, because it will probably look a little bit too orange on light skintones. That's why this is a good product for summer, where you normally are a little more tanned. This stuff is super pigmented so be careful when applying this.

These three blushes are the perfect shades for the summer. First color is an orangy color, without any shimmer, second is a peachy, coral color, with a shimmer/sheen, and third is a bright, almost neon coral color. All of theese shades looks amazing on all skintones. This is also very handy if you are going on vacation, because you have 3 blushes all in one!

Hope you enjoyed it and have a fantastic summer!
