If there’s one thing I love about summer beauty, it’s achieving that healthy, shimmery glow! I’ve been doing some legit “makeup research” by experimenting with a new beauty routine and adding new, exciting products to my makeup kit! Whether you are after the perfect sun kissed bronzer, or a pink lippy that pops, here’s a bunch of summer makeup products you simply NEED!

For Eyes

Prepare to see a return of the shimmer! I’ve developed a bit of a metallic quad obsession, highlighting shimmery nudes, pastels and charcoals. With the rise in nude lip looks, I’de recommend putting a little more emphasis on the peepers with a classic, shimmery, smokey eye. You’ll see me blending:

 Scout Cosmetics Mineral Eye Shadow; Ice Baby, & Becca Ultimate Eye Colour Quad; Night Star.

For Lips

I never thought I’de say this, but I’m really into the whole Kylie Jenner nude lip, so much so that I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect nude lipstick to enhance my fair skin. I’m officially calling of the search party because I’ve found the most flattering pink-base nude lippy from Stefan. *Insert praise emoji*

Of course, I haven’t forgotten my signature colour – pink, and I’ve added two new shades to the collection, with a slick gloss and lip shine!

Becca Ultimate Colour Gloss; Flamingo Crush, Dusty Girls Argyle Pink Mineral Lip Shine, Stefan Professional Lipstick; Nude.

For Cheeks

Now that I’ve mastered the contour and illuminating process, I’m concentrating on the apples of my cheeks, favouring warm terracotta bronzers and soft, subtle blushes, to get that glow! Check out my favourite mouses, powders, and shimmers below! For more fabulous makeup essentials check out the entire Becca collection available at Adore Beauty.

Dusty Girls Sunshine Natural Mineral Bronzer, Becca Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle; Watermelon/Moonstone, Sigma Blush; Mellow & Peaceful.

Of course the finesse of your makeup application is only improved by using good quality tools, so naturally I’m showing off these beautiful brushes by Sigma Beauty. Not only do they come in a vibrant shade of pink but they hold the product beautifully and are so soft against my skin. Check out the Sigma Beauty Color Pop Brush Kit and transform your beauty routine!
