The Makeup I've Been Wearing Lately

I always like to switch up my makeup, whether it's due to the change in weather, the season or I just feel like I need a makeup bag update. I've had a few new additions to my routine, so I thought I'd share the makeup I'm currently wearing.

Bronzers are a must for me during the warmer months, but it can be hard to find one that's the perfect balance between being pigmented, but not too orange. The Becca Sunlit Bronzer* was one I've had my eye on for a while and the shade I chose, Capri Coast, is a great match for my skin tone. It easily sculpts the face, adds a dose of colour and doesn't look flat due to the hint of shimmer it has. 

I'm still very much into cream eyeshadows and a sort of doe-eyed look in the form of the Sigma Brilliant Shimmer Cream*, MAC Bare Study Paint Pot and the NYX Wonder Pencil. The latter is great at lining the eyes, concealing any blemishes and genuinely being a good all-rounder to have in your makeup bag, whilst the other two offerings work perfectly to create an almost wet lid look that can be set easily with a swipe of an eyeshadow. 

The Becca Light Chaser Rose Quartz Highlighter* is one I'm currently testing out, but as a highlighter that isn't like anything else in my collection it has been welcomed with open arms. Although priced the same as their other illuminators, you do get 1.5g of product less, but I can't fault the colour pay off and longevity. It's a pink highlighter that works well as a blusher topper, yet on it's own it's unique shift helps it to blend into the skin, making it- in my opinion- slightly more wearable than even some of my champagne hued highlighters. 

If there's one product that keeps creeping it's way back into my makeup bag it's the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. Ibiza, a vivid pink, is a new shade in my collection and one that I picked up on a whim. It looks absolutely divine paired with a bare face and bronzed skin and is a shade that I think I'm going to reach for throughout the Summer!
