There’s no doubt about it when the weather heats up and it’s time to hit the beach, less is most definitely more when it comes to makeup. Just five makeup items is all it takes for me to be out of the house and enjoying the sunshine.
Here’s my ultimate summer makeup bag:
Decleor Self Tanning Milk Natural Glow. Not strictly in my makeup bag, but definitely one of my summer product must haves. This is the most natural-looking formula I’ve ever used and it’s been a staple of mine for well over 5 years.
Laura Mercier Foundation Primer & Tinted Moisturiser. This powerful duo provide the perfect beach worthy glow and sun protection I need.
MAC Crosswires lipstick. This beautiful coral pink lipstick is my summer favourite, it’s such a cute shade and looks perfect on tanned complexions.
Chanel Les beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour Stick, Blush No 20. This fabulous cream blush has a subtle shimmer that really illuminates the skin. Sweep onto cheekbones for the ultimate summer definition.
Estée Lauder Sumptuous Waterproof Bold Volume Lifting Mascara. I’m a big fan of Lauder’s mascaras and switch to this formulation in hotter weather.
The Sanctuary Body Moisture Spray. Again not a makeup item but I can’t live without this in the summer. It leaves skin moisturised with a beautiful sheen. Perfect for getting the legs out.
And lastly for a summer evening I just add a thin sweep of black liquid liner to define my eyes. My favourite? Shiseido Automatic Fine Liner. It really is the best for creating that perfect flick.
