Yumeko's Weekly Photo Challenge # 10

Yumeko's hosting a weekly photo challenge. This week it's all about summer must-haves. I did my summer beauty essentials a couple of weeks ago but the idea is so fun that I decided to join her.

1. Base makeup
My T-zone gets extra oily during the summer and Korres matifying primer is my life saver.

Korres Matifying Primer, Kiehl's super fluid, Kiehl's Damange-Repairing Serum, Clarins Ever Matte Foundation, Laura Mercier Translucent setting powder

 2. Point makeup
Glowy peachy tan cheeks
Edward Bess Sunlight and Afterglow give me a seamless sheen that look natural under direct sunlight. Dior Aurora and Edward Bess Monte Carlo are perfect peachy bronzes that are smooth and have a little bit of sheen. Obsessed!

Neutral colors, long-wear formula for the eyes
I've been wearing Dior Beige Massai non-stop since March. I find it compliments summer bronze looks particularly well. Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Stretch mascara holds the curl all day, lengthens my lashes and doesn't smudge. It's not waterproof but I never have a problem.

Bold or Nude lips
In the summer, I either go nude with Bobbi Brown High shimmer lipgloss in Beach and Edward Bess Pure Impulse or bright with YSL Rouge Couture Innocent Fushia. And my lips need extra moisture under the sun. My current favorite lip balm is EOS. 

4. Bodyspray/ Perfume
Tocca Giulietta, Tom's deodorant (natural!), The Body Shop Salt Body Scrub

3. Cover up
I'm brave. I only shield my eyes! Sunglasses from LOFT

5. Other must-havez
I can't endure makeup long in the summer. Even can't wait until I got home. So I use Boots No.7 makeup remover wipes in the car:)

Water, Fruit and Sandals!

  2. My summer must have is sunscreen! I don't like getting tan:)

    1. Agreed! I wear sunscreen year-round! What's your favorite sunscreen?

  3. Wow--you really have some incredible picks! I am obsessed with my Monte Carlo palette too--it's literally the perfect cheek product! I'm envious of both your All Over Seductions! I really want to try both of them! Oh and your Aurora bronzer too--I'm still so bummed I missed that one

    1. Aww, you're so sweet Becca! I highly recommend EB All Over Seductions! They blend seamlessly into the skin and you can build them up for more intense night time glow.
