Summer Makeup Bag Essentials

Posted by: on Jul 13, 2013 | No Comments

The UK shores have finally been hit by some summer sun! Summer over at Gossipdrip means plenty of frozen yoghurt and trips to the beach, and of course, a big change to your makeup bag.

Here are a few makeup essentials in the Gossipdrip bag this season.

BASE – Summer is all about the tinted moisturiser. It is the perfect alternative to heavy foundation and it provides you with enough coverage to even out your skin tone and hide blemishes, without the heavy feeling of a high coverage foundation. Our personal favourite is this one from NARS.

Swap the powder blush for a cream alternative. It makes your skin glow and stays put in the summer heat. Check out this one from Max Factor: bargain!

LIPS – We love a bold lip but if you find lipstick a bit too heavy to wear in the summer, but still want some colour, try out the Revlon lip butters. They are light, moisturising but also very pigmented: a perfect compromise.

MOISTURISE – You can still get dry skin in the summer so it is important to still keep it hydrated. Drink lots of water and moisturise regularly. If you find body creams are too heavy to apply in the heat try this ultimate beauty oil by Garnier. It’s light and absorbs easily in to the skin.
