It feels a bit strange that my first post since the lockdown is a summer beauty wishlist – even a bit irresponsible… but I also know I’m not the only one doing all I can to distract myself from the world at the moment. Not to mention the fact that treating myself to a pamper and a little bit of me time is the only thing keeping me sane right now! I hope you’re all staying safe and finding some positives to us being stuck at home for now. I just keep reminding myself that it could be a lot worse I guess!
Every year I try to make some adjustments to my makeup bag to make sure at least my everyday makeup is comfortable for the season ahead. For summer that means long lasting but not heavy products that help me incorporate fresh skin and fun colour. It’s out with the full-coverage foundation and in with the tinted moisturiser! So with that in mind, here is my summer beauty wishlist full of all the new additions I’d love to make!
I’m looking for medium coverage at best, if not light. In summer I tend to bin the foundation most of the time and just spot conceal, but there are definitely occasions when I need to feel a little more fancy…
Cheeks and Lip
One of my favourite makeup traditions in Summer is to use multi use colour, namely lip/cheek combos! Not only is it a lot easier, but I also feel like it adds a really natural finish to your makeup if you use the same cheek and lip colour to add a pop of interest!
In summer it’s all about the setting cream eyeshadows for me. I like the ease of use and reliability and longevity of most cream eyeshadows. This is definitely a category I could go WAY overboard in – it could definitely be 50% of my summer beauty wishlist if I let it!
