Summer Makeup Haul

Words to the wise - never let me inside a drugstore with a credit card.

Now that we've got that out of the way, I wanted to share a few of my new favourite summer products. When the warmer months hit,  my makeup routine tends to become quite minimal and I stick with products that do not run with sweat. I like simple, yet beautiful. One morning in Shoppers and I found everything I needed to survive this summer looking great!

Batiste Oomph It XXL Volume Dry Shampoo

This is great for those summer days where you're headed to the beach or to the park and washing your hair seems pointless...yet the grease and lack of volume is a bit too obvious...

L'Oreal True Match Foundation

I have always had a hard time finding a good foundation because I have such a light and complicated skin tone. This foundation was recommended to me and it's great coverage without feeling heavy. I probably will not wear it every day, but for summer date nights it will be perfect!

Covergirl Katy Kat Matte Lipstick

I picked this up at the last minute, on my way to the checkout, but I am so glad I did! The texture of this lipstick is perfect and the colour - I got mine in Sphinx - is so natural and easy to wear. I am definitely tempted to go back and pick up a bolder colour for nights out.

Covergirl Tru Blend Bronzer

Contouring is not exactly what I want to spend my time doing on summer mornings, yet I don't want to look pale either. So, I went on the hunt for a glowy bronzer and found this beautiful product. It is a bronzer with a bit of a highlight and gives me the perfect sun kissed glow.

Of course, throughout the summer I'll need to replace some products, but for the most part I think I'm set! It's a great feeling and I'm looking forward to the effortless look I can now pull together.

Let me know, what are your favourite summer products?
