Summer 2016 Favourites

I had to take some time off this summer due to work and travelling but things should be getting back to my normal Monday/Wednesday posts now. 
This summer I've had quite a few favourites because I started a new professional job. I've been doing my makeup everyday unlike during school when I wear quite minimal makeup. 
Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum- I loved wearing this foundation all summer, especially for work. It has light coverage and is semi-matte which was nice for the summer months when it's hot outside and it's easy for your skin to get oily, but it's not completely matte so it still gives you a nice natural finish.
MaxFactor Primer- Primer was important in making my foundation last and continue looking good for the 7 hours of work. It also really smoothed out my skin.

Urban Outfitters Nail Polish in Tutu- I've been on a nail polish kick this summer and found a few that I'm totally obsessed with. This gold glitter polish looks beautiful especially with the flecks of purple. It's like my perfect polish. Checkout my Instagram (@makeupbymeggy) to see a picture of it on my nails.
Revlon Nail Polish in 420 Copperglaze Platinum- When I first got this polish, I wore it three weeks in a row. Besides the fact that it's rose gold, it's also long lasting and applies nicely.
Flower Beauty Kiss Stick Velvet Lip Color in Tea Rose- This is my perfect nude lipstick. I have fairly pigmented lips so really light nudes look weird on me. But this nude is just the perfect tone for my fair skin. It's also a very comfortable velvety matte. And if you can catch the theme here, the packaging is rose gold.

L.A Girl Pro. Conceal- I had heard a lot about this very inexpensive concealer and I finally picked it up this summer. I got the shade classic ivory which has a pinky undertone making it perfect for concealing and correcting under the eyes. It's also very opaque but extremely blendable. I've been loving it.
Rouge Edition Velvet in 07 Nude-ist- Just for the record, this is in no way a nude. I would almost call it a pinky red but I love it. It's extremely long wearing, even while eating and it's comfortable on the lips. It goes on feeling velvety and smooth but dries completely matte.

What have you been loving this summer?
