Monthly Makeup Must-Haves

Posted on July 31 2018

The WRITTEN team is treading in uncommon territory. This month the interns decided to share with you their newfound loves and recent discoveries, so make sure to check out their beauty must-haves. 


Abby Costache’s must have-

Forgo powder blushes and say good riddance to the fallout which makes a once clean makeup bag riddled with debris. Summer and it’s humidity offer the perfect time to switch to a cream blush. It won’t cake-up but instead will give you the glowy dew you often strive for yet fail to achieve due to all the mattifying products you use in aim to subdue the oiliness puddling on your skin.

Not only do cream blushes blend seamlessly with your base makeup and add a great colour to your cheeks, they’re also a phenomenal multitasking product. From rosying the cheeks, to adding some colour to your pout, and popping on a fun shade onto your eyelids, it’s the best 3-in-1 product creating the perfect monochromatic look. I once was team powder and can’t imagine going back after falling for these cream products.

Check to products listed below to shop Abby’s favourites.

Clinique, Chubby Stick 

Revlon, Insta Blush

Bobbi Brown, Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks


Taylor Clarey’s must have-

Summer is all about staying fresh and bright. A staple that I cannot go without during any time of the year is a multi-use facial spray. Whether you need a hydrating base to your makeup or a rejuvenating mist to the skin, this will be the trick. It’s easy to get stuck in the habit of matte everything, especially while making a transition into the new season. Rather than using a sticky setting spray, bring your matte look to life with a natural, dewy look. When your skin needs an extra lift, facial sprays will give you the satisfying feeling of being awake and ready - and that reflects on your skin! These sprays are nearly incredible. To tone, set, hydrate, rejuvenate… keeping a small spray bottle in your bag is just as necessary as an extra gloss. Stay cool in the heat and amp up your makeup game.
