My 5 Summer Make-Up Picks

 Today I just thought I would share a couple of my favorite summer make-up products. I have been really loving five in particular!

1.) Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base: This cream bronzer is absolutely stunning and I am so glad I invested in it. It's a little pricey but I can tell it is going to last me a LONG time (like...years!). I had a Macy's gift card and it was the first thing that came to mind to use it on. Cream bronzers give such a natural, sun-kissed glow to the skin and this one is definitely my favorite.
2.) Mac Blush in Sunbasque: Mac blushes are so great and pigmented! Sunbasque is the perfect color for summer. It's a pretty terracotta color with a slight sheen to it, adding to that summer glow.
3.) Bobbi Brown "Bronze Glow" Highlighter: Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure this was limited edition over Christmas. I'm hoping they will come back out with it again in the near future because it is such a beautiful bronze highlight that will work for so many different skin tones. I am linking one of their other shimmer bricks here that looks like it may be similar!
4.) Urban Decay "Half-Baked" Eye Shadow: If any of you are like me and were obsessed with the first Naked palette (I still am!), then you probably have seen this shadow before. I am obsessed with gold shadows all over the lid with a matte brown in the crease (especially in the summer with bronze skin) and "Half-Baked" is my favorite gold shadow of all time. I have tried ones from Lorac, Make-Up Geek, Bobbi Brown, etc. and this is still my all-time favorite. I was so excited when I saw they sold it in singles. 
5.) Buxom "Sophia" Lip Polish: For all you brown haired/olive toned girls out there, I have found that really pale bright pinks aren't the most flattering on us. I love pink lips though! They're so feminine and so pretty on other people. I have found that the most flattering "pink" lip for my skin tone/coloring is a pink that has more mauve or rosy undertones. This Buxom Lip Polish in "Sophia" pairs so well with mauve and rose lipsticks! It is absolutely stunning for summer and I actually think this would be a great gloss for any brides in search of a great neutral pink.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

  3. I really want to try the Chanel bronzing base! It looks awesome!! I'm just afraid it'd be too orange, and I heard it has some shimmer to it?

    1. There is a tiny bit of shimmer in it but it's so fine you don't notice it on the face! I actually think it has more red undertones and if you are really light-handed with it, it looks so natural!

  4. would love to try nr. 1 and nr. 4 :D xoxo

  5. Thanks for sharing these summer make up tips. I love gold shadow. It makes my whole life feel a little bit sparkly:)
