I can't believe it's almost Summer, it feels like we missed Spring entirely. That being said, I have still been wearing my favourite makeup products to create a glow inducing base with a fresh pop of colour on the cheeks, so I thought I'd share with you what's in my makeup bag at the moment.
SPF is essential all year round, but I feel like people focus upon it more in the sunnier months. I use the Glossier Invisible Shield (use this code for 10% off your first order!) as it's a trusted favourite that I know won't break me out. I usually struggle with SPF's as it can make the rest of my makeup cakey or cause spots, so once I find one I like, I tend to stick with it.
I have two options for my base, one being Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter* paired with the Nars Soft Matte Concealer* to create a simple, glowing offering and then the other option is to put the NYX Bare With Me Tinted Veil on top if I want added coverage. I prefer to use a pot concealer with the CT base as I find warming it up in-between your fingers creates a smoother, natural looking finish.
Cream blushers are a favourite of mine when the weather gets warmer and it wouldn't be Spring without getting my Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge out. It's great for adding to natural makeup for a pop of colour, but if I want something that'll work well with a high coverage foundation, I choose the Glossier Cloud Paints. They can be easily applied with your fingers, building it up for a stronger look or sheered out when you want something a little understated.
Although it feels like yesterday since I cleared out my beauty drawers, it was actually two months ago! During that clear out, I stumbled across the NYX Liquid Illuminator which I used to use all the time and now it's firmly in my everyday makeup bag. Although it's not as long lasting as it's high end competitors, I really like it when I want to add a glow to the tops of my cheeks.
On my lips, I would usually wear something like the Charlotte Tilbury The Queen Lipstick* for the evenings when I go out, but obviously that isn't happening right now, so I've been keeping it simple. The Glossier Birthday Balm is an everyday favourite, but I really enjoy using the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments* for when I want to add subtle colour that can be topped up throughout the day.
