My Summer Makeup Must-Haves :P

Not that I am that great with makeup anyway, but with summer fast approaching, I can happily go around with hardly any makeup and blame it on the heat (for winters, I have to think of some excuse :P).  These are my favorites for this summer.

chanel mat lumiere foundation clinique dermawhite mac select moisturecover duo
Sunscreen:  Clinique Dermawhite (heard it's been discontinued)
Concealer:  MAC Select Moisturecover Duo (review here)
Chanel Mat Lumiere Powder Foundation (review here)

avon glimmersticks lipliner mystery muave ysl rouge volupte luscious pink chanel glossimer praline nakkar
Avon Glimmersticks Lip Liner - Mystery Muave (here)
YSL Rouge Volupte Luscious Pink (here)
Chanel glosses - Nakkar and Praline
chanel blush espiegle
Blush:  Chanel Espiegle - gives just a hint of warmth to my face
and  a barely there peach sheen.
I guess bright colours for the eyes are the in this summer, but I have been managing with just these twist-up eyeliners of late.  Not that I am that much of an eyeshadow person - I just use one colour at a time - but now I have gotten so lazy, I skip even that :P

And some blotting sheets in case the skin starts misbehaving :P (recommended must-have by Cali):

What are your must-have makeup products for the summers?

  4. OMG...Amritha!! Nooo there are other Indian bloggers too who review Chanel products - but they also review so many other brands so probably you didn't notice :) Where do you stay? I know only a few places:

    Bangalore - Lifestyle stores (Koramangala and Richmond Road)

    The other two stores, I found with a bit of help from Google, so the info might be wrong, and I don't know much about these cities either :)

    Delhi - Chanel Boutique, Hotel Imperial
    Mumbai - Palladium Mall

  14. Bee - Nothing compared to the flaunting someone did on IMBB today - skirt and boots and an attitude to match :D

    Cali - Is really really good..but I add the sheets too...me update :D

    Anupam - I like the blush because I am not that comfortable with more colour..this is just enough for me to feel good but never look clowny.

  17. Do check out Rouge Extrait Glosses then..these glossimers that I have shown in the pic are quite sheer..they just give a hint of colour to the lips..the Extrait glosses give a lot more colour but are still very much in the gloss level..

  22. Oh Rads lovely prods just like you =*

    I would say my make up summer essential is the Lancome Drama mascara...

    as it cuts down my make from eye shadow and pencil and anything else....I put that only and i am done sometimes no need of even foundation just moisture and all set, for me its just WOW...

    Personally i think its the only thing i ever used on my face that actually made my chin drop at the effect :D from Drag to Queen in just secs :P
