I dislike Summer, a lot. The heat and the stickiness drives me nuts. However the bonus of Summer is minimal make up (cough… effort) so here is what I have been using pretty much every day to make me look a little more human.
The Manna Glo Iluminator – I have been using this mainly on my cheeks to give myself a glow… and following this up with the Bourjois Healthy Mix concealer under my eyes and on any blemishes (I have a few at the moment… hormones) blend this out with the Real Techniques buffing brush.
Taking my Spectrum blush brush A05 I swipe my Nars Laguna in a 3 shape on my face so it looks a little less round.
Bit of Benetint on my cheeks to make me look alive and I also put this on my lips too so they look healthier finishing those with some Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream.
I spruce the brows up with this Kiko Milano Precision eyebrow pencil. This is a great pencil, really pleased I picked this up… he fills in the sparse areas with minimal effort.. they probably look like rubbish but still… I made some effort haha.
For the eyes I have been using the L’Oréal Baby Roll Mega Volume mascara in waterproof.. I cry… a lot… mainly at cat videos on YouTube, wedding proposals, baby announcements and random adverts… I’m a bit of a sensitive sausage.
What are your Summer staples? XO
