Summer Makeup Favourites

summer makeup favourites
Hi Lovelies
I really love summer BUT wearing makeup can be a bit of a challenge, so my challenge the start of the month was to find makeup that would last during hot days and thankfully after trying a few products I finally came up with with these lovely products and I just have to they all faired really well and stayed on my face all day even on the hottest day.

For Summer I like to wear makeup that is light to wear and also long lasting. I usually go for a natural look with a bright or nude lipstick.

Beauty Favourites
Urban Decay Naked Foundation  Cruelty Free // Vegan 
This foundation is super light almost weightless and is very breathable so its perfect for the summer months. I wear these foundation over a moisturiser and finish it with the urban decay all nighter to keep it in place all day.  The good thing is that this foundation is its build able so you can have a

Urban Decay Naked Concealer Cruelty Free
This concealer goes very well with the urban decay naked foundation, I apply it to my under eyes and brows. This lasts just as much as the foundation and isn't drying. Its a win-win product for me.

Soap and Glory Supercat Eyeliner Cruelty Free /// Vegan 
 Sometimes when I apply eyeliner in hot weather it can melt during the day but with this eyeliner this hasn't been that problem. I love how easy it is to apply the liner and how neatly it applies too.

Barry M Lash Vegas Mascara Cruelty Free /// Vegan
For mascaras in summer I like them to make my lashes look natural with a little bit of a curl as I find a lot of others a bit too heavier for the summer months

I just love the brand Illamasqua and one of my most favourite products from the brand has to be the satin lipstick, they are very smooth to apply and they come in nude to bright pinks and reds. They are soft so keep my lips feeling moisturised. My favourite at the moment is Cherub which is a lovely warm coral shade.

Urban Decay Beached Bronzer Cruelty Free
Bronzer is one of my favourite makeup products in the summer as it can be used on the face or the body. I love applying this on my cheek bones to define them to give them a contoured look and it works very well.

The Balm Mary Lou Highlighter Cruelty Free /// Vegan 
I can honestly say ever since I got this highlighter I have worn it most days because I just love it so much! it highlights the cheekbones to perfection; I mean seriously you notice such a difference wearing this highlighter. I use this for my cheeks, brows, cupids bow and to mix with other eyeshadows.

  3. I also have that Soap And Glory eyeliner too, i love it. Illamasqua used to be one of my favorite makeup brands once upon a time. Now i've just fallen out of love with the brand. I've never fallen out of love with a brand before like I have done with Illamasqua x

  8. The naked concealer is my absolute favourite concealer, I really want to try the foundation when some of the ones I have are used x

  9. These are some awesome picks. I'd try out the Soap and Glory eyeliner and those satin lipsticks.

  10. I recently picked up UD's foundation because of my skin darkening over two shades in foundation since it is summer time. I have to say I love it. I can't find a concealer that matches me, though. It's sad.
