What’s in my Summer Makeup Bag

June 10, 2018


As Summer is soon approaching (the weather has been SO nice recently), I like the change up my makeup a bit for the warmer weather. I usually go for more bronzer/shimmer and less foundation because no one likes a sweaty, shiny face! I’ve been using a few products religiously over the past few months so I thought it would be nice to share it all in a blog post.

NYX Foundation – I LOVE using this as my base because it gives you such a flawless and smooth finish but it is really light which is perfect for summer. It also stays on my face for the whole day and doesn’t melt down your face in the sun!

Hoola Bronzer – If this isn’t in your makeup bag then where have you been for the past 3 years?! I feel like every single blogger/you tuber has been talking about this product and it’s amazing. I always find that I use more foundation in summer because it gives me more of a tan.

Soap and Glory Glow All Out – I love highlighter ALL YEAR ROUND so obviously this will be in my makeup bag. I love that it’s a stick not a powder because it is a lot easier to blend and looks more natural.

Bronze Glow Collection – I like to use this bronzer because it’s a bit shimmerier so perfect for summer evenings. It is also very easy to blend and I love the shade of it.

Eyeko Black Magic Mascara – After my old mascara ran out, I thought I’d try something new and so I chose this one. It really separates each lash making your eyes look fuller and it really lengthens each lash too. DSC_0784


Claire’s Bronze Smokey Eyeshadow Palette – I would never really go to Claire’s for makeup but when I saw this palette, I thought I’d try it out. All the colours are PERFECT for summer and they are so beautiful. They are all quite bronzy (is that a word?) and a few of them are shimmery.

e.l.f. Highlighting Dewy Drops Illuminating -I love to mix this with my foundation for a really dewy, fresh look. You can also use it as a highlight but I think it works perfectly mixed.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – I love to wear nude lips in summer, especially if you’re wearing quite a shimmery bronzed look so when I saw this in Boots, I thought it would be perfect! It stays on your lips for the whole day and doesn’t feel drying AT ALL!

Tanya Burr Lip gloss in Lunch Date – This is such a gorgeous shade and very summery. It’s perfect to just pop in your handbag and use throughout the day and it is also very moisturising.
