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?

  14. Such a pretty summer look! Love it. It's natural and looks like I'd perfectly fit me as well. That Hoola thing from Benefit is on my list too btw. Seems to be such a nice product.
