What's in my makeup bag | Summer edit

Friday, 8 July 2016


If Im being really honest here, my makeup doesnt really change that much during the summer months. Thats probably because we dont get super hot weather here very often. *sobs* 

I should probably be more adventurous but the only thing that really changes is my lip colour...sometimes. And I usually change up my mascara to a waterproof version and use a mattifying face primer. Wow, calm down there Becca. Dont be too crazy! 


Base


L'oreal infallible mattifying primer. 
If you've been following my blog for a while then you would probably know that I hated this primer so much! I didnt think it did anything for my makeup until I started using it recently. I find that it really does make your makeup last longer and it gives the perfect base to apply your foundation. Its a win-win! 

Estee Lauder double wear foundation in the shade "ecru".  

Revlon photoready powder. 
Theres nothing particularly specila about this powder but it does its job and thats fine with me. Im not fussy when it comes to setting powders. 


Cheeks

Seventeen define and conquer contour kit 

Makeup Geek blush in spellbound and soulmate

MAC mineralize skinfinish in soft & gentle


Eyes

Maybelline lash sensational mascara. This is my go to mascara year round! 

Makeup geek eyeshadows in shimma shimma, bitten, creme brulee, grandstand and morocco. 


Eyebrows

Soap & Glory archery eyebrow pencil. This use to be my favourite eyebrow product when I first got it, but now Im not such a great fan of it but I have no other eyebrow product. I really want to try the new Benefit products. 


Lips

Gerard cosmetics hydra matte liquid lipstick in the colour "everything nice"

MAC lipsticks in coral bliss and pure zen 


What items are in your makeup bag this summer?

Love, Becca

  2. I love a few of these products already. I have the MUG z palette and I think it's perfect for travelling around with loose pans! :)

  5. It doesn't get ridiculously hot here, either, but I work at a pool so I still need to heat-proof my makeup! I love the MUG shades you picked, I think they'd make a beautiful eye look from what I've seen of them x

  6. I don't really tend to change my make up much for summer either, unless I'm on holidays in a sunny place where I just where less usually.
