5 Summer Makeup Essentials

Summer is a time for glowy skin and glossy lips when it comes to makeup for me, and I’ve been loving so many products recently for giving me all the summery makeup vibes. 

I thought I’d share with you my top 5 makeup essentials for embracing the fresh, glowy skin look! 

Bronzer – MAC Mineralize Skin Finish – Give Me Sun

Bronzer is essential for me in summer, for making me look healthier and like I’ve actually seen the sun! I love this one from MAC as it gives a really healthy glow and because it’s a mineraize skin finish it has a nice subtle shimmer in the light. 

Blusher – Sleek Rose Gold 

Blush is great for making you look healthy and awake, and this one from sleek adds a subtle pop of colour as well as having a shimmer so it helps with glow.

Highlight – Anastasia Sun Dipped Glow Kit

Highlight is an essential all year round, but having a popping glow in the sun is key. The Anastasia glow kits are just amazing and I’ve been using sun dipped for a while now. I mix summer and moonstone and it looks amazing on the top of my cheek bones. 

Lip Gloss – Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector – 03

For me warm weather calls for glossy lips, I think it finishes of a glowy look really well. I love these clarins lip glosses, they’re so comfortable to wear and the colours are gorgeous, this nude pink goes great on its own or over any nude lipstick.

Setting Spray- Urban Decay All Nighter

Setting your makeup in the warm weather is key to it lasting and I swear by the Urban Decay All Night setting spray, it’s amazing and my makeup doesn’t budge, no matter how hot it gets. It also adds a healthy glowing finish to your look. 

I hope this has given you some tips on how to get glowy summer makeup, and I’d love to know your top summer makeup essentials too!
