Everyday Summer Makeup
I have been planning on posting an everyday summer makeup look for a while now and I've finally got round to it! During the summer I prefer to go for a more minimalistic look because I can't handle a full face of makeup in hot weather (although this isn't usually an issue in England!).
Firstly, I apply the Benefit That Gal Brightening Face Primer all over my face (I forgot to include this product in the last photo!). After letting this sink in for a few minutes, I then use the Vichy Idealia BB Creme - I apply this with my fingers rather than using a brush because it gives quite light coverage so doesn't really need blending in. If I have any blemishes then I dab the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer on to them and blend with my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. Using my Real Techniques Blush Brush, I apply the Benefit Hoola Bronzer to my cheeks and up round the sides of my face and forehead. Next, I use The Balm's Mary-Lou Manizer above my cheek bones, on my brow bones, down my nose, and on my cupid's bow to give my skin more of a glow. I curled my eyelashes to give them a bit more of a lift before apply the Benefit Roller Lash Mascara. Sometimes I don't bother with my eyebrows but when I took these photos I decided to use the Maybelline Brow Drama to make my eyebrows more defined. Finally, I applied the Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker XL Extreme Plump Lipgloss to finish my look - it's a lovely nude gloss that gives a 'my lips but better' finish.
I hope you enjoyed this sort of post! What are your favourite products to use in the summer?
