Freiha Writes x All She Needs: What's In My Makeup Bag (Summer Edition)

Hey everyone! Its Fareeha from Freiha Writes and today I'm going to be talking about something very exciting!

Summer is well and truly upon us. Each day seems hotter than the last. But makeup fanatics (like myself) won't let the heat deter us from wearing makeup and putting out best face forward, right?

I'm going to give you a sneak peek into my summer makeup bag and letting you know about the products I've been reaching for:

Base: SPF is a must. Its non negotiable, especially in our sweltering Indian summers. I apply a thin layer of Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock all over my face. It protects my skin from the sun, while leaving a nice base for makeup.

On most days, I tend to skip foundations. There's simply no point in working hard on your base and having it melt right off the moment you step out into the sun. I leave foundations for night time and bad skin days. Usually, I apply the Lakme CC Cream in shade Bronze all over my face using my trusty Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. For under eyes and blemishes, the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer is what I've been loving this summer. Its light, easy to blend and gives good coverage.

After everything is done, I set my base with the Maybelline White Superfresh Compact. Its a great, affordable powder.

Cheeks: For adding a slight contour and warmth to my face, I apply the Makeup Revolution Ultra Bronze bronzer all along the perimeters of my face: my temples, under the cheekbones and along the jawline. I'm a fan of this bronzer since it is completely matte, with zero shimmer or glitter.
I apply my bronzer with the Real Techniques Multitask Brush.

Brows: To fill in my brows, I use a mixture of the powder and wax from my Sleek Brow Kit (Extra Dark). Its absolutely brilliant. Doesn't budge all day and still looks natural.

Eyes: No eye-shadow/eyeliner play during the day. I leave smokey eyes for night time. During the day, I keep it simple: curling my lashes with my Inglot Eyelash Curler and giving them a few coats of the Maybelline Hyper Curl Mascara (the waterproof version, obviously).

Lips: I've been a huge lover of the matte lip trend and one of my all time favorites is the Revlon Colorstay Matte Balm in Sultry. Such a Kylie Jenner-esque shade, it looks beautiful on Indian complexions.

There you have it, my loves! My summer makeup routine. Also, if you like my makeup bag, I got it from Chumbak.

Bye for now, peeps! I'll be seeing you in the next Freiha Writes x All She Needs post!
