Makeup Artist Gives You Her Summer Favourites

I’d be lying if I said I use my all my makeup year around. Some products are just too heavy for the summer,  a heavier texture,  the way it feels on your skin, and the colours lend to each season of course.

I definitely don’t have my make up bag split into seasons but I sure do know what my go to and faves are in the summertime!
Here’s the products I can’t live without in the summer:
Charlotte Tilbury -Matte Revolution lipstick in Bond girl (also comes in a lip liner)
This colour is, shall I say, the “darkest natural” I’ve ever found. I describe it that way because it’s the perfect lip tone without being red or orange or brown it’s sort of just is, more than nude but not dark.. all lips needs this colour, and its perfect when replacing deep tones in the summer with something a little more fun and easy!
Gee beauty – Precision Brow Pencils by Gee Beauty
The best part about these eyebrow pencils is there fine firm tip that can imitate hair with just a few strokes. Perfect for the summer time when you don’t want your brows to look over done or solid.
They come in 3 colours. Blonde, Brunette and Deep Brunette

Urban decay – 24/7 Waterline Waterproof Eye Liner.

The title of this eyeliner speaks for itself in what I want in and I pencil for the summer heat.  With one glide it sets in 30 seconds and then I don’t have to worry about it again! There’s 37 colours but my fave is still the classic Matte Blackest Black.
Cover F/X – Custom Enhancer Drops (in Celestial)
Because some summer nights you just want to feel like a fairy. Also adding this beautiful glow do your shoulders, décolleté and legs is magic!
Armani – Luminous Silk Foundation 
This foundation is great in the summer a little goes a long way. It still has a slight glow but stays put.
 Also you can mix it with a bit of moisturizer to get an enhanced tinted moisturizer look. Best to keep coverage light and only where you need it in the summertime.

Tata Harper – Volumizing Cheek & Lip Tint 

Sheer and healthy how else would you want to describe your coming days of summer!
Tata Harper is one of the best natural and vegan products out there!
The cheek and lip tint offers a glow and stays sheer so keep your skin coming through yet adds enhancement exactly where you need it. Also it smells divine!
My go to shade is Very Naughty- classic ruby red
But they make 4 great colours.
