The Additions To My Summer Makeup Bag!

Hi everyone,
For today's post I wanted to share with you a few makeup products I have added into my everyday makeup bag. I feel as though, every time the seasons change so does my makeup and so I wanted to share with you a few products that are essential for me in the summer.

Seventeen Stay Time Concealer
Lots of people love this concealer and I can see why, but it is compared to the Collection Lasting Perfection in terms of coverage but I disagree. The formulation of this concealer is very light weight and hydrating but it isn't high coverage like the Collection concealer. Never the less, I love this concealer for summer as I like a more natural and fresh faced look in the warmer seasons so this replaces my more heavy duty concealers.

Freedom Pro Butters Lipgloss in Cat Whiskers
This colour just screams summer to me, it is a beautiful, bright, coral pink shade. I am not the greatest fan on the formulation of this product thought, it can sometimes be a pain to apply as it is a very patchy and sheer formula but I love the shade too much not to use it. It has a satin finish and the shade just really compliments my skin, especially with a tan!

Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil
I already have a review of this up on my blog (link is here) if you want more detail but this is just so quick and easy. During summer I just like to let my skin breath and keep my makeup basic. This brow pencil is so quick and easy to use compared to something like my ABH dip brow. It just adds that little bit of definition to my brows but still keeps them natural.

Maybelline Master Contour Stick
Recently I have been loving this and a review of this will be going up soon (keep your eyes peeled). As we go into the hotter seasons, our makeup tends to do this thing were it just melts straight off your face (it's what happens to me anyway) so to prevent this I usually switch my powder products to cream products to help my makeup last longer. This cream contour stick is perfect, it's great for on the go, blends like a dream and when it is set with a face powder, it doesn't move. I am not really a fan of the highlighting side but the contour side is definitely a must for me.

Maybelline The Colossal Go Extreme Waterproof Mascara
God isn't that a mouthful! Obviously this product goes without saying, a waterproof mascara is essential for summer. Don't lie, even us girls sweat and the last thing we want is our mascara melting right down our cheek. The Maybelline mascara is one of my all time favorites, it adds length, volume, definition and it does not move one bit.

Makeup Revolution Beyond Flawless Eye Shadow Palette
I recently picked this up and it is very not me. The shades are very different to what I would usually go for, but as it is summer I wanted to venture out into more golds and pinks on my eyes. I am one to go for a very matte eye look with whites and browns (basic, I know) but this palette is mostly shimmer which is what I was looking for. There are some beautiful shades in this palette and I hope it lets me experiment a little more.

I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know whether you would like me to turn this into a seasonal thing. Have a great day!
