Summer Makeup Wish List

Anyone who knows me knows I get packages of makeup delivered far too often. However, that won’t stop me; in my opinion you can never have too much make up to work with. Of course you’re not wearing all of it at once, otherwise I would have 5 different shades of foundation and a couple thousand shades of various other products on my face. The idea behind stocking up on make up is being able to be creative with your look. Though I’m very confident with who I am, make up is just a hobby for expression. Depending on the occasion or time of year, different products allow us to achieve different looks. Summer make up tends to be a little bit darker on the skin complimented by lighter and brighter shades on the lips. Many people, including myself, don’t like loading on the skin make up, but still aim to achieve the contoured look throughout the summer. That being said, here are some products I’d love to try this summer to achieve that sun kissed look everyone loves!



Mac Ablaze

This coral shade is ideal for a casual summer day or a night out with the girls. It makes for the perfect contrast between sun-kissed skin and the glow from your favourite highlighter.


Anastasia Beverly Hills Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit

Anastasia and Nicole Guerrero outdid themselves with  this glow kit! These shades are so luminous and absolutely gorgeous. No matter what look you’re going for, one of these six shades will most definitely compliment the high points of your face. I personally love mixing different shades in all of Anastasia glow kits so the combinations are just about endless with this one!



Origins A Perfect World

This age defence moisturizer with white tea is made to protect your skin from the effects of the sun. It comes with SPF 40 and tons of hydrating agents to moisturize when your skin is most vulnerable. I am yet to experience the effects of aging skin, however it is super important no matter how old you are or what skin type you have to start protecting your skin against aging.


NYX Matte Bronzer

Firsts things first, I have been a ride or die Two Faced Chocolate Soleil owner for the past 3-4 years and I never thought I would ever give another matte bronzer a chance because there was absolutely no need to. I recently purchased this NYX Matte Bronzer randomly because I had never tried any NYX products and I’ve heard many mixed reviews on various products. This bronzer went above and beyond any of my expectations and I fell in love almost instantly. The best part is it was only $11… That’s right, no typo $11! Though it doesn’t smell like chocolate like it’s Chocolate Soleil competitor, it was worth every penny for this high pigmented, super bronzey product.


Mario Badescu Facial Spray With Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater

This spray is considered a must have for make up artists and a summertime essential product. You can spray this product anytime, anywhere for a refreshing and hydrating pick-me-up. It can also be used on make up brushes prior to applying foundation to give your look a dewy finish or as a dewy setting spray. I look forward to using this product!
