I’ve always been the fresh faced makeup kind of girl, and summer is the perfect time for it. Makeup melting off your face is never a good sight. Enter: Lightweight and sweat proof formulations! Patchy, greasy skin is now a thing of the past with lightweight and sweat proof formulations entering the makeup game. Picking the right formulas are vital when creating your summer makeup kit. And, opting for lightweight makeup that won’t budge even when the temperature hits 40 degrees outside is a must. It took me a while to find the best products that work for my combination skin, and the sultry summer alike. But, on one Sunday afternoon while I was browsing the app I stumbled upon Nykaa’s Summer Store. With a variety of different products for every skin type, concern, and finish, the store had everything you would need to ace your makeup game this summer. Read on to find out the 15 makeup products that I bought and that have now got a permanent spot in my summer makeup arsenal.

Colorbar Flawless Finish Primer

Want your makeup to last all day and look flawless? Then, this is your guy. It goes on completely invisible and smooths the look of the skin right away – a pea sized amount is enough. And, did I mention that it helps my makeup stay put, no matter the weather.

Maybelline New York Fit Me Fresh Tint With SPF 50

A tinted moisturiser has got to be my go-to for the season. This formula moisturises and protects the skin, while still delivering a natural-looking coverage for a fresh faced look. The best part is that it requires zero skill. I just apply it to my face and blend it in with my fingers. In a few seconds, my skin looks even and immaculate.

Mamaearth Glow Serum Foundation

Can’t do without a foundation even in the summer? Then opt for a lightweight one like a serum foundation that will nourish your skin and offer natural coverage too.

If you’re like me, someone who can’t do without a concealer, then this sweat and heat proof one that offers maximum coverage is the one for you. Oh, and it offers an incredible matte finish too!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Bronzer

Too lazy to go to the beach, but still want that sun-kissed look, makes this cream bronzer a must-have in my makeup bag. Contour, define, and sculpt all with one product, and brownie points for being easy to use.

Kay Beauty Creme Blush

Dewy skin all the way - summer’s all about radiating that glowing goddess energy, and a trusty creme blush is my best bet to getting that look.

Nykaa Strobe & Glow Liquid Highlighter

I’m a strong believer of the fact that summer looks are incomplete without a dose of highlighter. All I need to do is dab on a few drops of this liquid highlighter on the high points of my face, and I’m good to go!

Swiss Beauty Ultimate 9 Pigmented Colors Eyeshadow Palette

A little bit of colour play on the lids never hurt anybody. To make my lids pop, I just blend a bright colour on my lids, or experiment with two colours, and that’s all it takes to be transported to the summer state of mind.

e.l.f. Cosmetics No Budge Shadow Stick

On days when I want to go easy on the eyes, I reach for this product in my kit that will highlight my lids well with the effortless shimmer effect. Just glide, blend, and go! This product can also double up as a shimmery eyeliner whenever you want.

Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel

Glides on effortlessly owing to its creamy texture, has a rich colour, and most importantly, it's waterproof - what’s not to love, right? Everything I need and more from an eyeliner for the summer season is in this product!

PAC Translucent Powder

I count on this translucent setting powder to control excess shine, blur out my pores and keep my makeup intact. Believe me, it never lets me down.

Rimmel London 100% Waterproof Mascara

I cannot live without this waterproof mascara. It not only volumizes and defines my lashes but also stays put even on the hottest days. No smearing or smudging insight.

Dot & Key Gloss Boss Tinted Lip Balm SPF 30

Tinted enough to make my pout stand out, and hydrating enough to keep it nourished through the day. What more could a girl ask for? Not to mention, this lip balm is enriched with SPF 30 for added sun protection. *adds it to cart AGAIN*

Just Herbs Lip & Cheek Tint

I’ve been using this beauty for years now and it has never disappointed me! Dab it on your cheeks as a blush, on your eyelids for a subtle eye look, and on your lips for a natural-looking pout. It’s literally one product that can be used in three different ways!

M.A.C Prep + Prime Fix+

Two spritzes of this lightweight mist is all I need to soothe, refresh my skin, and set my makeup. This mist has also made its way into my work bag to use it for a midday boost of freshness and hydration.
