Striking pigments for your summer make-up bag

I am feeling so inspired by the colour movement that we are seeing on Instagram at the moment. Make-up artists from all over the world, amateur and professional, are getting bolder and brighter in their quest to enjoy cosmetics.

I’ve picked some of my favourite colour pieces for those of you who love to play with colour like I do.

SugarpillSugarpill Cosmetics Pro Palette
Unfortunately this is not currently available to buy, but the shadows that it includes are available separately or in palettes of four. Sugarpill eyeshadows are of an insane pigmentation; the tiniest brush of your finger against a pan will result in an electric wash of colour! If you like to create long lasting vivid eye looks, look no further than these. Be sure to check out @SugarpillMakeup and @Shrinkle for inspiration on how best to work these colours.

Illamasqua’s blushers are by far the best that you will ever find. Whether you go for Powder Blusher (they will last all day) or Cream Blusher (the best for blending) you will find an unrivalled selection of colours and finishes. This duo from the I’mPerfection collection contains two of my favourite shades, Hussy (a warm pink) and Lover (a soft peach) and will match almost every lip colour under the sun. If you decide to experiment post your look with the hashtag #Illamasqua and it may even be shared on the @Illamasqua page.

MBRLime Crime Lipstick
Lime Crime are one of my favourite brands for lipstick as their pigments are so strong but the consistency is so creamy. My favourite shade is this one, My Beautiful Rocket, a bright orange. You might also like to try their Carousel Gloss (pictured here) for a full, glistening finish. Visit @LimeCrime for fan photos galore.

PeachesPeaches and Cream eyelashes
Without a doubt, you will not find better lashes than at Peaches. With so many styles to choose from and an impeccable quality, these should be a staple in your make-up bag whether it is summer or winter. Please note: Peaches also sell lots of other lash styles at their salon, but it is their own brand lashes that I like the best. Go for a No.9 lash and you will never look back. Follow the girls @PeachesMakeup.

BowPeaches and Cream Marebow
Speaking of Peaches, Mary Donnelly makes the best hair accessories in the world. From bespoke hair bows to custom made flower garlands, Mare’s accessories will transform your summer look from barely there to beautiful. Choose from the selection on their website or pop into the Liverpool salon to arrange a custom made piece.

Most importantly… join in the colour movement! Follow me on Instagram @MixedGemsUK and tag me in your colour posts, I would love to see what you create.
