If I mention the fact that there's only one month left of summer, is that the same thing as saying Voldemort out loud? Regardless, the warmer months are coming to an end *tear* but that doesn't mean the beauty products are going anywhere. For me, July has been all about rediscovering old favourites. Care to see what I've been putting on my face?
Naked 2 Eyeshadow Palette - I have lots of love for this eyeshadow palette, but mostly for two colours in particular. Bootycall and Tease are my best friends. If I could buy them separately I would be all over that, but for now carrying around the entire palette will do just fine.
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle - No word of a lie, I've used this highlighter every single day for the past two years and it's STILL going strong. I can sense it's on its last leg so I'll be in the market for a repurchase soon enough. Want a Kardashian glow? This is your product.
NARS Blush in Sin - Plum perfection. Need I say more?
MAC Paint Pot in Constructivist - Admittedly, I am quite new to the cream eyeshadow bandwagon. Last month, I talked about the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Bad To The Bronze. Constructivist is very similar in colour, but works both as a stand alone colour or a shadow base. Best of both worlds? You got that right.
NYX Butter Glosses - In general, I'm head over heels for these things. I've not reached for any other lip product in a long time. Honourable mentions have to go out to Peaches & Creme and Devil's Food Cake for sticking by me on those hot summer days.
The Body Shop Honey Bronzer - The perfect bronzing counterpart for pale girls. With a completely matte finish, this is a contour's dream.
What have you been reaching for this month?
Essie has been KILLING it with their summer shades this year, and I can't seem to resist. From bright greens and blues to juicy reds, there's not one colour I'm not attracted to. However, there's an old classic that I can't seem to shake loose.
Essie's Watermelon couldn't be more self explanatory. It's a refreshing twist on your everyday red, and makes your tips feel sophisticated and seasonal. One or two coats of this liquid gold leaves you with nails to be desired. My favourite summer shade ever? That's a pretty bold statement, but I'm not saying no..
What's your go-to summertime shade?
