My Summer Makeup Essentials

Hello adventurers,

I have been obsessing over a few makeup and hair products lately. It’s a collection of drug store and non-drugstore products, but dupes are not hard to find whatsoever.

IMG_3591The first item I have been loving is the Batiste dry shampoo. For someone with long hair, it does become bothersome to wash it everyday or every other day (if I get lucky). I have tried other dry shampoos, such as Dove, but I find that it has an odd smell. The Batiste dry shampoo is a life saver for those busy days where I just don’t have an hour to spare to wash my hair.

Second on my list of essentials is the MAC Haute and Naughty mascara. This is the only mascara I have been using recently because of the drama it adds to my lashes. I was not blessed with long lashes, but this mascara does the trick and fools any onlooker into believing I have full lashes. It has two wands, and the volume created is unbelievable. This is definitely my favourite non-drugstore mascara. A drugstore favourite would still be the L’Oreal Miss Manga.

Sticking to MAC products, I have been loving the Pro Longwear Concealer. It does provide quite a bit of coverage and lasts a long time. I love how this concealer does not cake up. I use this concealer for under the eyes and anywhere I may have redness. My favourite drugstore concealer is the Rimmel Wake Me Up, which I do need to repurchase.

Moving onto the cheeks, I have been obsessing over BH Cosmetics’ blush in Lilac for a few months. This is a blush and highlight duo. It is a beautiful pink shade which creates a perfect rosy cheek. The colour pay off is great, you can either add a strong pop of colour or go a bit more subtle.

Now for the holy grail of highlighters: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle. This highlighter will give you the perfect glow. I am madly in love with the product, is it very pigmented and adds the bit of sparkle to your face.

Lastly, I present my favourite red lipstick to date: Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss in 01!

IMG_3582I have tried so many red lipsticks, over the past few years but this is definitely the winner. It keeps your lip hydrated and the colour payoff is great. I have used almost all of it since it is my go to lipstick these days. I absolutely love the packaging and the lipstick does not smell odd at all which is a huge plus for me.
