Summer is finally upon us and with that comes the task of finding products suitable for hot humid weather that may even be multi purpose. There are a lot of makeup products out on the market. I mean aloooot. No one is prepared for the amount of monthly collection releases and new inventions the industry comes out with.
So to make it easier on you I present you my all time favorite go-to makeup products. Most of these are even multi purpose products as they can be used on eye and cheek or go from lightweight to full coverage. Luckily these are not limited edition or sold out check out the following products to stock up your beach party makeup bag just in time for all the summer events about to go down:
The best primer to smooth over any texture. Suitable for all skin types and ages and leaves the foundation, concealer and powder looking smooth and silky.
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer doesn’t crease and comes in a variety of shades undertones. Great to cover redness & under eye circles, highlight with or mix with your foundation for more coverage!
MAC Studio fix powder can be used on its own as a powder foundation or to set any foundation or BB cream for a more full coverage look!
NARS Blushes in general are amazing: bendable, smooth and highly pigmented. This color („Gaiety“) is great for paler complexions as it gives that fresh flush on the cheeks!
Colourpop highlighter in „monster“ reflects cool tones such as pink and purple making it great as a highlight for fair skinned people or as a eyeshadow topper for an intense shine.
Make Up For Ever Pro Bronze Fusion in „15l“ is warm enough to warm up any complexion or blend out the edges of any eye look but still cool enough to not give you the oompa loompah look! Can be used as an eyeshadow in the crease too!
Urban Decay is known for its „Naked“ eyeshadow palettes. They are all great quality and worth the price tag but my all time favorite is the Naked Basic 2! It’s small, easy to travel with, has a mix of cool and warm tones ranging from light to dark and are all matte. Only the lightest shade on the far left is satin finish which could even be used as a face highlighter when in need. Great palette to pair with the Colourpop eyeshadow I’m mentioning next!
Colourpop „LaLa“ eyeshadow is the perfect bronze shimmer shadow. It’s not glittery but more wet-looking making it great for summer!
ABH Brow whiz is my all time favorite brow product no matter the season or occasion. It’s long lasting, natural and comes in a bunch of different shades!
Liquid Lipsticks are all the range this year but can look quite dry and crusty in the summer heat. So a great alternative are the affordable NYX matte soft lip cream. They are cream-y soft, long lasting and matte but also smoothing and not drying- hence the name. They come in about 12 different shades from nude, to neon coral to dark purple.
All of that I store in this cute leather makeup bag by BreakUpsToMakeup!
