Summer is right around the corner, in the summer my makeup is usually minimum because i’m on holiday or going to the pool. I just like to keep it simple espeically if I go a weekend away I like to pack as light as possible.
First of all always wear sunscreen, no matter what weather in fact; but always in the sun. I usually wear SPF 40 or over. Then I use the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer ( it has a really long name) this is my number one concealer because it’s so light weight but gives great coverage for spots and under eye circles.
I don’t really wear blush in the summer usless i’m going somewhere, so highlight is my go to. My favourite highlighter is Benefit watt’s up highlighter. This gives the most beautiful glow I seriously can’t get enough of this. I pop it on my cheek bones, bridge of the nose, brow bone and cupids bow and inner corner of the eyes. This makes you look like you have that perfect summers glow.
For brows it’s fairly simple, I use the l’oreal brow artist plumper in medium/light first to keep my brows in place. Now for an old favourite Soap&Glory archey, I use the brush end to fill in the gaps in my brow.
Eyeshadow I try to pack light because at the end of a hot summers day it’s melted off my eyes even with a primer.My favourite travel palette is The Urban Decay Naked Basics palette. I use foxy (pale yellow) all over the lid, naked 2 in the crease (grey shade) and occasionally faint on the lash line (warm tone brown). For when i’m going somewhere or just feel like it I use L’oreal colour riche gel-infused eye shadow in 500 GOLD MANIA this is a really bright metallic gold, because my eyes are blue this makes then pop.
The mascara I plan to take with me for summer is Kiko extreme sculpt mascara, I just recently done a Kiko haul with this in it. It resembles so much of the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, I thought I would take it With me. This really gives the lashes lots of volume.
In the summer I like to wear lip glosses and sheer lipsticks, I really love the balance me lipgloss for Glamour magazine. It has a sheer red finishes that gives you a slightly darker shade to your lips, it also smells and tastes of mint.
