Fresh Everyday Summer Makeup

Hi, I feel like I haven’t posted in ages! So, today I wanted to talk about my everyday fresh, summer makeup routine. These are the products I have been reaching for in the warmer weather. The Glossier Cloud paint in the shade Beam is my favourite blush for the summer, it’s super easy to apply and blends into the skin seamlessly. Leaving a natural-looking tint to the cheeks. For a primer, I have been loving the Estee Edit Radiance Activator. It’s like the Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow but a lighter champagne shade, this gives the most beautiful glow and I love to mix it with my foundation, moisturisers or use as a primer. It has added skin care benefits, that basically claim to make your skin glow over time. One of my favourite concealers is the Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define, it has full coverage for blemishes but is light enough for under the eyes and not to mention it costs £4!

For a cream bronzer, I have been using the Fenty Beauty Matchstix in the shade Almond. It’s a warm tan shade that adds warmth to the face and because it blends into the skin easily and seamlessly it looks natural, which for me is the aim for fresh summer makeup. Highlighter is always a must my top pick for a cream highlight would be Mac’s cream colour base in the shade Luna, this has a super dewy, luminous finish that lasts all day, and even looks better at the end of the day when it has mixed with the natural oils of your skin. For eyeshadow, in the summer I tend to go for long-wearing products because I have super oily eyelids, Glossier’s Lidstar in the shade Moon is my go to. It makes the eyes look glossy without slipping about or melting off and lasts a seriously long time. I don’t always wear mascara but when I do my go-to at the moment is Maybelline’s Total Temptation, a good all rounder mascara that adds volume and doesn’t flake off during the day. For brows, it has to be Glosser’s Boy Brow, it defines and fills in the brows in one simple step.

On my lips I usually use a lip balm or gloss, Glossier Cherry Balm Dotcom is a moisturising balm with a tint perfect for lips or cheeks.
