6 Summer Makeup Must Haves

I know we’re still in Spring, but Summer is just around the corner and I’m ready to embrace the warmer weather with fun filled days and romantic nights. My absolute must haves for this summer will give you sun protection, hydration and as much colour as you desire!

Here’s what to keep in your makeup bag during the warmest months of the year.


Make sure your look stays put this summer while you’re soaking up beach days, barbecues, and more with a good, solid primer! When you apply MakeSense Silk Primer & Pore Minimizer at the start of your makeup routine, you’re creating the perfect base for a flawless face. You’ll lock your complexion products in for long-lasting wear you love!

Why You Need It:

  • Diminishes the appearance of enlarged pores
  • Absorbs oil
  • Blurs fine lines and imperfections while offering anti-aging benefits


As temperatures heat up, many of us like to shelve our full coverage foundations in favour of lighter coverage formulas that let our skin breathe a little easier. According to ELLE, next-to-nothing skin is very much still in!

When I’m looking for that fresh skin look, I without a doubt reach for MakeSense Color Correcting Tinted Moisturiser. Its lightweight, non greasy formula is a best-seller for a reason!

Why You Need It:

  • Sheer-to-medium coverage and colour correction in one step
  • Offers skin protection benefits with an SPF 15 mechanical protection (like a-shirt for your face)
  • Can be worn over moisturizer or under foundation, if you’re a full coverage lover
  • Available in 6 shades


Summer is the time to really GLOW for it!  Want my biggest glow-up tip? Add a touch of liquid highlight to your base product of choice. You’ll be sure to get an all-over glow you’ll love.

Mix a little MakeSense Pearlizer into your foundation or tinted moisturizer for a stunning, lit-from-within look. You can also apply it to the high points of your face for a beautifully glowing finish or mix it with any of your cream to powder shadows or blushes….the choices are endless…..just like I like my summers!

Why You Need It:

  • Formulated with anti aging moisturisers, minerals, and vitamins
  • Applies beautifully with a brush or fingers


Bright eyeshadow looks are still going strong. So I suggest having some summer fun and experimenting with colour! 

Why not pop a stunning shimmer on the lid to elevate a neutral look, or go for full-on colorful glam. The choice is yours!

3 You’ll Have Fun With:


Summer isn’t just for bright eyeshadow looks. You will definitely see me sporting a bright lip or two!

With Bustle predicting funky corals, hot reds, and wild pinks to be the shades of the season, I might just have to park my nudes aside for the time being.

Hues You’ll Choose:


Fierce summer lip looks just aren’t complete without a gorgeous hydrating Gloss to lock it all in. Wear these by themselves or over your favourite LipSense colour.

I’m currently obsessing over shades inspired by some of my fav summer fruits. 

Hues You’ll Choose:

During the warmest months of the year, make sure your makeup look brings the heat!
