Summertime Lip & Cheeks



For me, lip and cheek products are staples in my summer makeup bag. I’m really into rosy coral hues for the summertime (which really compliments bronzed skin!). I’ve been reaching for these lip and cheek products lately:

1. Lancôme Blush Subtil in “Rose Romantique”

Taking cues from it’s name, this blush is totally fitting for going out on a warm night. It’s also completely matte and adds just a subtle rosy blush to the cheeks.

2. Rimmel Stay Blushed in “Sunkissed Cherry”

Cannot rave enough about this liquid blush! It has a gel-like consistency, but it’s so sheer and blendable- it literally looks like your skin’s natural flush. So ideal for summer when you want a tiny bit of colour on the cheeks but don’t want anything heavy, powdery or sticky- scent is very fresh and mild too.

3. NARS Blush in “Torrid”

My go-to blush for summer- I find myself reaching for this one every year around the same time. It’s perfect if you have warmer undertones in your skin because of the finely-milled gold shimmer pigments.

4.Rimmel Colour Rush Balm in “Not An Illusion”

I’ve been searching for a new lip colour for everyday that isn’t a lipstick and isn’t a lip stain (I use stains during the winter months)…so I tried this one by Rimmel on a whim and it’s now what I use on my lips everyday! It has a balm-like texture but delivers more colour than a regular tinted lip balm and it smells amazing- sort of like vanilla ice cream but nothing artificial smelling.

5. Chanel Rouge Coco in “Mystique”

First of all- love the name (fits right in with all the mermaid-esque beauty trends of the season). Secondly, love the shade- it’s a coral-peach toned lipstick that looks amazing whether you have a tan or not. And texture-wise, it can be sheered out as almost a balm on the lip or intensified with a few layers. Also doubles as a cream blush if dabbed sparingly on the cheeks!

Let me know which lip & cheek products are your summertime staples!
