My Spring & Summer Makeup Essentials



Although it doesn’t feel like it, summer is actually nearly here, well lets hope we get one, can never tell with the british weather can you? But I know when the weather starts to change I like to change up my makeup products to.

So I thought I would do a post all about the products I’m currently loving and products I think I will use a lot over the next few months.

If you know me at all you will know I love to glow, looking dewy and radiant is a must for me, as I do have dry skin I just prefer a more dewy look. So what better time to look greasy looking than the summer months ha! No but seriously I Think dewy skin done right look gorgeous in the summer.

I am also a massive highlighter junkie, I think highlighters, face sprays and lipsticks is definitely  what I’m into the most right now, and I dont see that changing any time soon.

Face Sprays

face sprays

  • Tarte ready set radiant
  • MAC coconut fix plus
  • Cover fx illuminating spray
  • Tarte rainforest of the sea Marine boosting mist

The Main one I’m loving out of these is the Cover Fx illuminating spray, its seriously amazing and I can’t get enough, it definitely makes my makeup and face look more glowy as it has tiny shimmer particles in, but dont worry you don’t end up with random sparkly dots on your face, the nozzle on this is amazing, it sprays like a fine mist so the shimmer is really subtle.


summer highlighters

  • Lottie london shimmer squad
  • Estee Lauder heat wave
  • Tarte skin twinkle volume 2
  • Jouer rose gold
  • Tarte pro glow liquid highlighter exposed

I am a massive highlighter junkie, I think since writing this post I have bought loads more, opps. But I can’t even pick a favourite out of this bunch, to be honest with you, I have been loving the Lottie london palette a lot, the top left shade is my absolute favourite, I also love the tarte highlighters, I think I will just be putting these all over my face throughout the summer months ha!


nude lipsticks

  • Jeffree star daddy
  • Jouer rose gold lip topper
  • Jouer skinny dip lip topper
  • KVD ludwig
  • Kylie maliboo
  • Nip+fab biscuit
  • Milani adorable

I do love a nude lipstick, I know summer is all about bright bold lips but sometimes I just like a natural lipstick that I know will go with everything. I am loving the more pinky nudes recently but the brown nudes will always be my all time favourites. The Jouer lip toppers are definitely going to be my summer essential, These look gorgeous over the top of liquid lipstick and dont feel sticky at all, I just feel like it adds a really nice spring vibe with the sparkles.


  • kiko Bronzer from the summer 2.0 collection
  • Benefit Hoola
  • Still magnificent metals
  • body shop drops of sun
  • madame la la west coast bronzing serum
  • Tarte in bloom palette
  • Becca backlight priming filter
  • Buxom divine goddess luminzer
  • Bliss quench n drench moisturiser
  • L’Oreal Pro glow foundation
  • Tarte Shape Tape concealer
  • SO…? Body mists

I know I’m definitely going to have more products added to this list by the end of June ha ha I have already ordered the new Jouer Skinny dip collection from Cult beauty and I have my eye on a few more bits!! What can I say? I am a little bit obsessed with makeup!

    For me Summer makeup is all about bronzed up glowy skin and bright lips 🙂 I love the Jouer lip topper I have, I was amazed how long lasting it is. x
