For my everyday makeup I like to keep it simple and easy so I can get out the door when I’m in a rush. My summer makeup is still simple but I like to bring on the glow, this is also my holiday makeup routine too.
I don’t wear foundation everyday because I don’t have time, I also don’t in summer because of the heat my face usually melts off by the end of the day. So I always wear concealer.
The Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer is my must concealer, it looks like skin and never creases or cakes. Also it is slighly lighter than my skin tone so perfect for under my eyes to highlight and cover my dark circles. The Seventeen Stay Time concealer is my new favourite for blemishes, it is the same colour as my skin so covers blemishes without drawing attention to them and stays all day. Not to mention it only costs £4.99.
Again my old favourite well used Rimmel Stay Matte powder is my go to for summer , as it keeps me matte the longest. I like to use the shade transparent and also use this to bake under my eyes to help stop creasing.
I like to contour but I never seem to have time to on an everyday basis, but when I have time I love to make my cheek bones stand out more. I like to use the NYX contour palette and the shade sculpt is my favourite from this palette as it’s the perfect cool tone brown.
I got the Naked Flushed palette in Native on saturday, and i love it ! the bronzer is a nice warm tone brown to add warmth to my pale skin. The blush is a barbie pink that blends out to give a nice healthy flush, and the highlighter is stunning and makes you glow! (review will be soon)
I love bronzed eye looks especially in summer, my palette of choice for this is the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. It has the most beautiful gold called creme brûlée that looks amazingly metallic on the lid and champagne truffle is just stunning for the inner corner and brow bone.
Also if I want a dewy finish to my highlight or just want an over all glow, I love to use the NYX Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator in sunbeam. This is great under your powder highlighter to get that super highlighted look or on it’s own. I sometimes like to apply it before I start my base to add an extra dewy touch.
To me brows are super important right now my go-to simple brow routine is Benefit Goof Proof brow pencil in shade 2, I think this is absolutely amazing and makes the brows look full but natural. I then go in with l’oreal brow artist plumper in medium/dark to add extra fullness and colour, they stay in place all day.
Mascara lately has been the Eyeko Black Magic mascara, it lifts and defines lashes. Lashes look wispy and don’t feel very hard. Curls the lashes without the need for an eyelash curler (extra room in my holiday makeup bag!)
My must have lip duo for summer is Model Co Illusion lip liner and NYX (can you tell I’m into NYX at the moment 😉) soft matte lip cream in Athens. The Model Co lip liner is basically a nude shade very similar to my own lip colour, l like to use this to make my lips look plumper and help the lip cream last longer too. NYX soft matte lip cream in Athens is a muted soft coral/pink that’s the perfect summer lippy, lasts all day and doesn’t feel drying on the lips.
