Makeup Products That You Need For Summer: Reviews and Swatches

Hi girls!

Summer is here and I hope those of you who love summer enjoy it. I am not really a fan of summer because most of all I hate the heat!

Here are some products* that I’ve tried and that I think work great for summer.

Be sure that your makeup is waterproof so you don’t end up looking like this 😉

Face

Add a sun-kissed glow to your face with Too Faced bronzers.

My favourite cream blush, true coral shade by Illamasqua, works perfect in summer heat.

Eyes

Want to create bright vibrant eye makeup for summer? Everything is possible with Inglot shadows.

Be sure to use cream eye shadows that don’t smudge or crease, something like Benefit’s crealseless cream eye shadows.

If you are going to the pool and to the beach and like to use makeup – use only waterproof products, something like

butter LONDON No More Waity, Katie Nail Polish

You can pre-order this nail polish at zuneta (image of their courtesy) at the first week of March. I really wonder why butter LONDON have chosen such shade, instead of blue inspired by Kate’s ring.

So here we go…

Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick in 738 Royal Plum

I have written about this lipstick only recently. It is a part of the upcoming Clarins’ Fall collection. It is a gorgeous plum shade with a satin finish. Not very intense but not sheer at all, just spot on!

 butter LONDON Lippy in La Moss

I absolutely love the name and the vampy shade of this gloss, so sexy! Just keep in mind that the application can be a bit tricky, it takes time to get an even coverage. But it’s so worth it! Dark vinyl lips, perfect for those who are not afraid to go for it.
