The temps here have been around 70 the past few days, and I feel like for the first time in a while, I’m welcoming the warmer weather. I’m usually such a fall/winter lover, but for some reason, I’m ready to put away all the heavy coats and sweaters [ok, maybe I’m not quite ready to part with my boots just yet].
In addition to making me feel like playing around in my favorite green Topshop romper all day, this heat has me searching through my makeup bags for all the pink, peach, and bronze creamy products. For spring and summer I love cream textures, and really easy-to-use products. Instead of spending a fair amount of time trying to create the perfect smokey eye at night, I’ll sweep a bronze cream [Love Charlotte Tilbury’s cream shadows in Marie Antoinette + Norma Jean] shadow onto my lids with a finger and call it a day.
I love cream products on cheeks as well during the warmer months. Instead of using my much-loved Filmstar Bronze and Glow powder, I’ll opt for Charlotte Tilbury’s Beach Stick in Ibiza. This product is truly stunning – a gorgeous bronze shade with a bit of golden shimmer. It adds dimension to the face while catching the light. Love peachy pink creams on cheeks as well – you guys know how much I obsess over Le Metier de Beaute’s Creme Fresh Tints! Charlotte Tilbury’s Filmstar On The Go palette in Breakfast At Tiffany’s is another fave.
For lips, gimme all the sheer, glossy pinks and peaches. I love how this type of sheer gloss makes lips appear plump, juicy, and super pretty. I think my all-time favorite summer gloss has to be Chanel’s Hello. It’s a really sheer pink, but I think it does such a nice job of accentuating natural lip color, while adding a lovely sheen. Another long-time favorite is Mac’s Cremesheen Glass in Richer, Lusher. The most beautiful creamy peach of life – looks great on its own, or overtop of any pink/nude/peach lipstick [like Mac’s Peach Blossom].
