Summer Caribbean & Travel series : Effortless summer makeup



Its summer time and that means simply sunny Makeup !

Summer time calls for fun sun dresses and flip- flops . Its the time of the year that the effortless look is in total trend. The same goes for the makeup look where we make it look effortless with a bright coral lip or cheek.

During summer I tend to wear not much makeup at all  other then a nice coral lip and cheek to warm up my face. But when the occasion calls I like to create that sun effortless look  . One collection that  has been my go -too Summer look has been with Brija Cosmetics  Glamour to Go collection .

The collection  feature five items  that include  2-eyeshadows , 1 -blush,  1-lipgloss, 1-cream eyeshadow . The whole collection cost $30.50 for all five pieces.  Each item can also be bought individual too. Brija  cosmetics are vegan & natural  are also made with simple ingredients  . In this post I will feature the  the blush , 2- eyeshadow & her  New lip jelly   (shown in Photo above  ) .

 Now lets take a look at each individual product 🙂 and some swatches .

This jelly lip balm give a sheer semi-light purple color to the lips. Leaves a  light shine on the lips  just like a lip balm. In goes on smooth just like a lip balm . It also has good last power . The color is build-able to a sheer to a dark shade shaded lip color. This lip balm is great to wear under or over a lipstick that tends to be more dry. Also works great over a lip liner too. The color may scare you in the tube but fear not as it gives a nice sheer color.

As you can see in the swatch photo-below  the color is very wearable for a everyday lip color, without looking weird or  to bright. I have pale skin with yellow tones but my lips are very pink -red color . So this actually makes my natural lip color just look better.  The color is a purple with some pink under tones that give the purple color a good balance. (below your find a closer look of  swatches )

Love the product for how easy it is to apply right off the tube. You don’t need a mirror to put  this  on. So it makes it a great go-to product for  those go-to-go days as one is out in the beach or  touring around in a city.



Bright Eyed + Bushy Tailed eyeshadow

This product is not only a eyeshadow but also a eyeliner . Which is great as you have two products in one & it means one product less to add to your  vacation makeup bag.  The color is a deep dark brown with purple tones to it . It makes a great color to make a smokey eye look.  And a great staple to have to make many looks too.

In the swatch you can see that its a dark brown with some blue sparkly . The sparkly are very little and actually add some edge to the color. This color is very pretty over pinks and it look great on its own when blend out .  In terms of a eyeliner I love as it is not so over powering like black is and this one is more wearable for a day  & night look.


Allure eyeshadow

Allure eyeshadow is what I call a basic eye color must have because its a cream color that works for any look . It’s a great warm pink cream color that works well for the inner corner’s of the eye & makes  a great eyeshadow blending color . To create a every day smoky eye I would just put Bright eye +bushy tailed  blend it well all over the eye  and blend it out with allure to soften the dark color.

Swatch of Allure eyeshadow

The color is a pretty cream with pink undertones . As you can see in the photo below the color kind off blend it with my pale skin( sorry for that :(, tried to make the color stand out ) .


Perk Blush

Perk blush is a very pretty coral pink blush.  This color is also lip save , which means that you can mix it with a lip balm and make it as a lip color too :). This color is beautifully to wear as it give the face a warm tone with out looking like a clown . It just brighten the whole look.
