Despite the fact that recently the weather seems to have been experiencing worse mood swings than a gal at that time of the month, it is still summer girls. A time that calls for a light-weight glowing complexion that feels barely there on the skin.
I’ve been loving my super quick (like, literally 5 minutes 30 seconds) make up routine at the moment and my make up bag has never been smaller! Unsurprisingly, the smaller I make my make up bag the better my skin actually gets, its able to breath in the brief moments of sunshine and heat while still giving me a fresh finish!
Lets open it up gals..
Drunk Elephant- drops of sunshine- I always start off with this little babe. I mix one pump with my moisturiser and massage all around my face to give me that post holiday glow!
No 7- BB Cream (fair)- I like to pop a small amount (2x pea size) on the back of my hand and dot this in my T Zone and centre of my cheeks. Then I use my fingers to blend outwards as I like the majority of coverage in the centre of my face where I tend to get redness.
RMS Beauty- Uncover up (11.5 + 33)- Using a (very old) real techniques brush, I like to buff a small amount of this concealer to my chin and nose in the lighter shade, and if I need a little coverage over some spotty guests on the outer sides I’ll use shade 33.
Mac- Medium Tan Bronze- A quick bronzing over my face where the sun would naturally hit always warms up the face.
Glossier- Cloud Paint (Puff)- I love the dewy finish to this blush so I’ll use my fingers to pop some on the apples of my cheeks and just below my brow bone (sometimes it helps to buff with that same real techniques brush if I’ve put a little too much on!)
RMS Beauty- Peach Illuminator- Using fingers or the RMS beauty brush ill pop this peach glow to the high points of my face for a summer glow.
Glossier- Boy Brow (Brown)- Textured brow dreams with this babe and I love how small the brush is!
Mac-Medium Tan Bronze- I like to pop that same bronzer over my lids for a wash of colour on the eyes (subtle, of course).
Maybeline- Lash Sensation Mascara- Im not fussy with lashes so as long as I get lovely whispy definition, i’m a happy gal.
Drunk Elephant- Balm- Very moisturising for the lips and smells incredible!
Charlotte Tilbury- Pillow Talk / English beauty- 2 of my favourite lip colours for day to day!
IF IM FEELING EXTRA:
Charlotte Tilbury- The Classic pencil liner (brown)- I LOVE a soft brown feline flick that’s smoked out for a naturally beautiful definition for the eyes, usually I’ll add this for a little extra love if i’m heading out for lunch or dinner or doing something that requires a little more!
I would love to hear what you are LOVING right now so send me your summer make up favourites!
