My Makeup Bag Summer Essentials

After being inspired by Influenster UK (they're just setting up a base here, yay!) to post on Instagram about my summer essentials for my makeup bag, I found the post was really popular so decided to do a little blog post to go with it. Below you'll find details of everything in this photo and where you can find it on the web!

1// Gold Fish Brush
I actually didn't get this, my sister randomly appeared with it a few weeks ago and gave it to me (she's adorable). She got it on Amazon, and though I couldn't find the exact same colour, they do have several that are the same in different shades here and they are included in Amazon Prime!

2// The Ordinary Colours Serum Foundation
This is an amazing serum-like, lightweight foundation that provides light buildable coverage in a whole range of shades, and is vegetarian friendly. You can currently find them at Victoria Health in the UK at the link here but be aware some shades are on backorder and the related 'Coverage' version is preorder only.

3// Lancome Hypnose Mascara
I think my tube is a slightly older version of the packaging- I was sent it to test last year by a magazine reader panel I'm on. You can find it at Feel Unique here, amongst other places. It really is an amazing mascara that gives you the false lash look without glue!

4// Benefit Gimme Brow
I got this as a little sample from a magazine (I am a bargain hunter, can you tell!) and it really is great for giving your brows an easy oomph- just one or two swipes on each brow and you're good to go. Find the full size to buy here.

5// Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick in B*tch Perfect
As I said on Instagram, part of my love for this lipstick is the hilarious shade name, but also it really is a lovely soft nudey pink (I'm so great at describing colours). You can buy it on the Charlotte Tilbury website here.

6// Jelly Pong Pong Liquid Gossamer
This is an awesome, cruelty free liquid hightlighter from the people at So Susan et al. It gives you a lovely dewy look which is perfect for summer. Find it here on the So Susan website.

7// Merci Handy Refreshing Face Mist
I got this in my latest You Beauty Discovery Box (which you can read about here) and it smells like summer and sun cream. Something like this will be useful during the next few days when temperatures will start soaring! It can be bought here on the Merci Handy EU website.

8// So Susan Sun Lounger Bronzer
A beautiful bronzer, perfect for contouring or just giving yourself a dusting of a glow. Find it here.

9// Jelly Pong Pong Wonder Gleam
This palette has a highlighter, bronzer and blusher all in one, and it's heavy on the sparkle so perfect if you're feeling bright. This is on the Jelly Pong Pong website here.

The makeup bag came with my April So Susan Lip Love bag, which you can read a review of here. Unfortunately my sunglasses are quite old from Dorothy Perkins so I can't link them! But I do think a pair of sunnies is a summer beauty essential so make sure you have your pair handy!

  1. I love these kinds of posts because I'm super nosey! Ahhh I need that Charlotte Tilbury lipstick, it's been on my wishlish for the longest time. And that packaging - just to die for, right?!


I love comments, and read every single one. I always try to return comments if I can. Thank you. :)
