Starting with Face Prep. I want to look very luminous and glowy for summer, so I’m excited to try these liquid illuminators out.

2. Mac Strobe Cream ($10/Cdn)

3. L’Oreal True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator in Ice ($11/Cdn)

4. Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer ($88/Cdn) – This is a pricey one, I will probably just pick up a sample or travel size.

5. Nivea Mens Sensitive Skin After Shave Balm ($10/Cdn) – Nikkie Tutorials has made this a fav in the beauty community as a primer as it contains glycerin which makes your makeup stick.

6. Mac Studio Moisture Fix+ ($33/Cdn) – This a cult favourite and I need to try it!

Moving on with Skin Products.Ā

19. Mac Pigment in Melon ($22/Cdn)

20. Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Midnight Cowgirl ($22/Cdn)

21. NYX Vivid Brights Liner in Vivid Sapphire ($10/Cdn) – When I first saw these I thought they were a little tacky, but I’ve seen tutorials online and now I’m interested in trying!

Lastly Lips!

23. Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipsticks ($18/US) – The makeup community is raving about these! Pictured above is Anna Nicole, a orangey-red, but I could honestly pick up any one of these fun, bright colours!

24. Buxom Full-On Lip Creams ($24/Cdn) – I also keep seeing these online, they give off a really nice gloss. I am interested in Peach Daiquiri, Bellini, Dolly, White Russian or Hot Toddy.

25. Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Dolce ($26/Cdn) – I already have one of these in Party Pink, the colour is so stunning, but it’s a weekend lipstick, so I’m looking for an everyday colour.

26. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($24/Cdn) – I keep seeing these online as well, there is so many great colours, but I think I’d be interested in Berlin, Beloved, Noble or Lovesick.
