Summer Stuff

Some of my favorites for summer

I haven’t posted about beauty in a while, so I thought today should be the day 🙂

I’ll just making a quick list with descriptions / review and you can let me know in the comments if you want to hear more.


Diorskin Nude BB Cream (001) – So pretty and natural with very light coverage. It gives a subtle but beautiful glow. If you take a lot of pictures though be warned: there’s a tiny bit of flashback.

Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder (01) – Beautiful highlight! I considered the Becca highlight at first (everyone is raving about it), but this is much more subtle and avoids that overly shiny look. It makes you glow, but in a much less obvious way. It stays the whole day too.

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat (1) – I’m sure you can notice by now that I love highlighting things 🙂 This is such a cult favorite. I love it, and I’m considering getting it in a darker shade too as a very subtle contour.

Tarte Tarteguard SPF 30 – This is not the most exciting thing ever, but sunscreen is so important! It’s very liquid, smells (literally) like a Caribbean island, and applies beautifully. It’s not shiny at all. As a strange bonus, it seems to also smooth everything out and act like a primer (?). Not complaining though.

Marc Jacobs Daisy – Smells like summer!

Christopher Kane for Nars Eyeshadow Duo (Parallel Universe) – So so pretty. Love at first swatch! The colors look a bit strange, but they’re so subtle and absolutely gorgeous. After all, this is Christopher Kane: the man who turns neon pink into a neutral. I’ll probably have used this up by the end of the summer.

Here’s a better look at it:

Bite Beauty Butter Cream Lipstick (Heather) – Very pretty coral shade. Slight drawback: the way it’s cut makes it a bit awkward to apply sometimes.

Eyeliners:

Mac Powerpoint Eye Pencil (Bordeauxline) – Perfect shade if you have green eyes.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil (Sabbath) – LOVE. I want every single color.

Maybelline Eyestudio Master Drama (Bold Brown) – Again, if you have green eyes, this is your new best friend.

NYX Slide On, Glide On.. (Golden Bronze) – This is made for summer. Very natural.


That’s it! As I’m sure you can tell, I’m into super natural and glowing makeup.
