Hi everyone! It's been a while since I've done a MOTD (makeup of the day), and with the beginning of summer, I thought I would share my go-to look. The products I use for this look is not exactly everyday-summer-friendly, but I love this for when I want to go a little more glam with my makeup. In this post, I'll include the main products I use, but there are some things I don't include like eyeliner, primer etc. My foundation, blush, eyeshadow etc, are things I like to change up depending on the look- but I have my go-to primers and stuff that never fail me (let me know if you want a post on that!) Keep reading to find out the products in my Summer Glam MOTD!

Here is the list of products I use:

  • Colourpop single eyeshadows in their empty palette: I have been obsessed with Colourpop shadows recently! I talk about them a lot on my Instagram, and I also did a blog post a while back with some of the shadows- however, my collection keeps expanding. For my look, I love using a shimmery shade (their shimmers are stunning) and using the warm mattes in the crease and the outer-v. If you want a full post with shades and swatches, let me know!
  • L'oreal Lash Paradise Mascara- This mascara has taken the beauty world by storm! Many people have compared it to the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, and I have to agree! This mascara makes my lashes so full and fluffy, and I love the waterproof version for the summer. I was even thinking about doing a comparison post for the two mascaras, let me know if you would like to see that!
  • Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Primer- After I'm done with the eyes, I move on the to the face. The Smashbox primer is perfect for blurring my pores, mattifying my skin, and improve the longevity of my foundation. 
  • Maybelline Better Skin Foundation- I have oily skin, but in the summer I love having a glowy look, so the Maybelline foundation is perfect. I did a full review on this foundation a while back. This foundation is natural, but gives me the look and coverage that I need!
  • Flower Beauty Matte Loose Powder- This powder is a new discovery, and I'm satisfied so far. It's a very very soft powder, and find that using a beauty blender, it sets my face makeup perfectly. It perfects my skin and keeps my makeup matte all day.
  • L.A Girl Blush in "Just Natural"- Moving on to the fun part, I love more natural blushes, and the L.A Girl one is beautiful. It's a very natural peachy blush that lasts a long time on the cheeks. 
  • Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer- Time to make me look less pale! I love using this to bronze the skin, and it smells amazing- like coconuts, beach, and summer. 
  • elf Baked Highlighter in "Moonlight Pearls"- To add some more glow to the face, the elf highlighter is gorgeous. Tip: When you first buy it take a Q-Tip and rub off the first layer. Under that, you'll get the most beautiful, creamy, highlighter. 
  • Marc Jacobs Lip Gloss in "Sugar Sugar"- To finish off the look, I love using this Marc Jacobs gloss. It's pigmented, smells like vanilla, and lasts a long time on the lips. It's the perfect nude shade to wear alone or layer over any other lip product.
