Summer makeup favourites

Hello beauties,
I hope you are having a lovely day. It's such a beautiful summer day in New Zealand. I'm at my mum's house in Taupo and I'm sitting outside with her white roses. The sky is crisp blue and there is a soft breeze that passes through every couple of seconds, it's a stunning view.

Today I thought I'd share with you my summer makeup favourites. These are products I can't live without and if I HAD to choose a select few to take with me on a summer trip - these five products are what I would take.

Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation & Concealer (Alabaster): A relatively new purchase that I have totally fallen in love with. This foundation blends beautifully and the applicator is great for touching up small blemishes or disguising under-eye bags! It feels lightweight on the skin, although use a light hand as it can get heavy.. fast. I apply with a brush for a semi-matte finish but if you're after something a little more sheer, apply with a very damp beauty blender. I love this foundation for summer because it lasts ALL day. Even when swimming or sweating! Yes please.

In terms of the shade range - I really recommend getting colour-matched in store and taking a sample home to try. I had such an issue getting colour-matched properly and it turned into a bit of a drama (story for another day). Thank me later.

Smashbox L.A Lights Blendable Lip & Cheek Colour (Hollywoof & Highlight): You know I love a good highlight and this has to be one of my all time favourites. It's a beautiful golden, shimmery highlight that gives the skin a soft radiant glow - it screams summer. I'm not usually a fan of cream products, but this is seriously good. I apply directly onto my skin (cheekbones, bridge of the nose and cupids bow) and then blend out with my finger.

Colourpop Eyeshadow (Blaze): Another Kathleen Lights colab - Blaze is a stunning coco bronze that looks so gorgeous all over the lid. As you know, I'm obsessed with Colourpop and wear their shadows every day. You need this.

MAC Cosmetics Lipstick in Ruby Woo and Fusion Pink: Another old favourite. I love MAC lipsticks as they last for hours on the lips. You can eat that ice cream on the beach AND have a swim before it needs to be touched up. Bright lipsticks in summer are my favourite and pull together any look. 

What are your holy grail summer products?
