Hello from the Summer days! It finally hit Summer here in BC, Canada and I wanted to share with you my favourite beauty products to use for the Summer. I always make sure my makeup is super natural in the Summer because I always have this fear that my makeup will melt off on a really hot day and I would have to continue the day like that. It also gives my skin room the breathe (especially since I have really dry/sensitive skin) and it doesn’t take up too much space when I am travelling.
We had the opportunity to head to Harrison Hot Springs, BC with Tourism Harrison for a night to enjoy the beautiful lakeview and water activities!
My cute makeup bag is from Miniso which just launched in Canada last month. It’s a super cute shop that sells anything from household items, to beauty products to anything you would need at home. Their products are designed in Japan but made in China which makes their products super affordable but still with decent quality!
Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – Radiance
The best primer for the Summer is definitely any primer that gives you radiance and glow. Laura Mercier has hydrating primers that help hydrate my dry skin and also adds a healthy glow to my complexion.
IOPE Air Cushion XP Foundation in C21 Cover Vanilla
I love using the IOPE cushion foundation because of how compact it is. It comes with puff that lets you touch up during the day, it’s basically an all in one product and it includes SPF 50!
Wet N Wild PhotoFocus Concealer in 840B Light Ivory
Always bring a concealer that works for you. To keep that natural look, bring a concealer that gives the most basic coverage and this Wet N Wild one does the trick (and it’s super affordable!).
Benefit Gimme Brow & Goof Proof Brow Pencil in No 3
If you have fuller brows, the Benefit Gimme Brow is the perfect product to help shape your brows and add the right amount of color. If you’re like me and have sparse eyebrows, make sure to bring a brow pencil that you can use to fill in the rest of your brows.
Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly Eyeshadow Palette
I have been trying out new eyeshadows the past month since I have always been sticking with the neutrals. This palette still has the warm neutrals but still has some purple shades if you feel like doing something different!
Tarte Tartiest Double Take Eyeliner
To make sure I don’t bring too many products, I brought this super intense color eyeliner from Tarte that has the pencil side AND the liquid side eyeliner,
Shiseido Eye Lash Curler & Tarte Lifted Mascara
To keep the eyes nice and fresh, don’t forget to curl your lashes and use a brown tone mascara. The Tarte Lifted Mascara is not only sweatproof but it gives this super nice lift to your lashes which opens up your eyes in a super natural way.
Hourglass Illume Sheer Color Trio in Sunset
My ALL TIME FAVOURITE all in one palette for the face. This trio is the PERFECT palette for the Summer because it includes the blush, contour/bronzer AND highlight. They are all cream products which will last on your face longer and it doesn’t dry out my dry skin (which happens a lot in the heat!). It’s a little pricey but I CANNOT recommend this enough.
Lancome Matte Shaker in Energy Peach
I found this best everyday lip product for the Summer. The new Lancome Matte Shakers are super pigmented and hydrating and they glide on your lips super easily and the colours are bold and great for that natural makeup look. It adds a pop of colour to your face and outfit!
CoverFX Illuminating Setting Spray
Last but not least is obviously the setting spray. You gotta lock all that makeup up with this illuminating setting spray from CoverFX. The spray is so smooth and eventually distributes on your face!
