Summer Beauty Favourites | Colourpop Mecca Hourglass

27 February 2019


This Summer i have been really loving some new & old makeup & skincare favourites of mine so grab a cuppa and lets talk about what I have been loving for this season 


All about the base & foundation 
One thing im always super vigilant about is always having good skincare prep before foundation application I have been loving the combination of the Mario Badescu facial toner sprays with my Neutrogena hydro boost moisture this creates a smooth base for the primer & foundation & the Mecca maxima life proof concealer
All about the powders 
Narrsisst Blusher Palette Covergirl vitalist healthy powder Flower Beauty miracle matte powder 
So im normally not a blusher kind of girl but when I saw this beautiful Cars blush palette I just had to pick it up the colours inside of this palette are so creamy & easy to build up the covergirl vitalist powder is a perfect bronzer for my pale skintone I get the shade 742 Medium Beige 
The flower beauty miracle matte powder sets everything into place I use this at the very end of my makeup application and than I use my Colourpop All Star setting spray 
Its a Princess Thing Palette Supershock Shadows & Hourglass caution mascara 
These  products have made creating any kind of eye makeup look so much easier the its a princess thing palette has a gorgeous arrangement of different colours so you can create any type of look from a day look to a fun night look the Colourpop supershock shadows are have always been a must have of mine ever since they started making them and my love for these is always the same there is honestly nothing else like a supershock shadow from colourpop the formulation is very buttery and easy to apply 
The Hourglass caution mascara  make my lashes appear more longer than what they actually are they also create a full curl effect on my lashes too 
A Pop of Colour with Lipstick
Colourpop lipsticks have such a creamy matte and moisturising texture to them 
The shades ive been loving is Cinderella & Cheetah

If there is one thing that I love about Colourpop is that they always have a perfect consistency with their shadows I honestly can never get enough of the colours they come up with in their palettes these both have a fun little arrangement of colours and the packaging is really stunning on both of these palettes
