Want to nail that fresh and glowing makeup look for summer? Here are 7 beauty treats we think you'd love:

Moonshot Microfit Cushion SPF 50+ PA+++, RM110

In the heat-inducing weather of summer, an ultra-lightweight foundation works best. Our pick for the season is this cushion compact by Moonshot, a delightfully light foundation to keep skin hydrated with a natural to medium coverage. It gives a cooling effect on the skin upon application, and the non-oxdising formula earns it extra brownie points in our books.


Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush, RM105

This adorable heart-shaped blush that works as good as it looks isn't new in Too Faced's repertoire, but this summer rings in a new sparkling shade of peach that is too pretty to refuse. The three colour swatches blend beautifully for a sweet, flattering flush, perfect for date nights (or days). 


Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Collection, RM215

Another peachy addition to Too Faced summer rendezvous, this limited edition eye shadow palette is just as its name suggests—a luscious collection of fresh-picked shades that charms with the juicy scent and antioxidant-rich essence of peach. A versatile palette to add to your beauty kit, the 18 shades of pink, coral, bronze and purple hues will help you create a plethora of fresh summer looks with ease.


Eyeko Black Magic Liquid Eyeliner, RM105

Richly pigmented and fade-proof, this Eyeko liquid eyeliner glides on smoothly in a single stroke, perfect for an effortless cat-eye. Our favourite thing about this eyeliner is the Widelash feature, which enhances lash growth, promoting longer and more voluminous frames for your peepers. How can one say no to that?


Tarte Tarteist Glossy Lip Paint, RM75

There's no question: you've got to have the perfect pout. To complete that overall summer glow, paint those lips with a nourishing, glossy liquid lipstick. We love this one by Tarte for its soothing and longwearing formula with a comfortable, non-sticky finish. Get an irresistible high-shine pout with one of its nine nude and plum shades, because there's bound to be one that fits your complexion to a T!


3CE Pink Rumour Satin Veil Loose Powder, RM125

When all that is done, finish off with the 3CE Pink Rumour Satin Veil Loose Powder. This light setting powder seals your makeup in with longwearing satin glow, while keeping the skin smooth and moist—radiant complexion made easy-peasy.


Sephora Color Hit Nail Polish - Tropical Pastel Collection, RM18 each

Lastly, do your digits for an extra pop of colour to complement your bright summer getup. Nothing spells fun in the sun quite like these lovely pastel hues, and the mini sizes make them perfect to bring along on a tropical holiday.
