Summer Makeup Routine


So it's summer and the  the sun is out (Occasionally, you will understand if you are from England haha!) so the makeup routine changes. If like me you get way too hot wearing a full face and just feel like its melting every time you eave the house I have got you covered. Its a simple and elegant mix of products that will leave you feeling glamorous for even the hottest of days.

I am not actually going to be explaining my exact routine but I thought that I would share the products I use with you and just why I like them. 

Face - 


My first and most important step for the flawless foundation look is using a moisturizer, I find that this helps keep the face looking fresh and ready for what you have to throw at it. I have been using the Garnier Moisturizer matte for combination and oily skin, I have found that this helps to keep that unwanted shine away!
Then I go ahead and use my Infallible 24H-Matte foundation, It is a good coverage and works amazingly. To finish I use my stay matte powder by Rimmel, I will never use any other powder as this works just fine. For Bronzer I use my Hoola by Benefit to give me the tanned look ready fro the summer months ahead.

Eyes - 


I first use my Mac painterly paint pot to make sure everything is covered and primed, Ready to add some colour. 

I have chosen two of my most used products as I would be writing forever otherwise haha!
My naked basics 2 pallet quickly became my favorite as it's compact and has some lovely natural colours perfect for everyday. 
My second it Sin also by urban Decay, A simple rose gold to brighten up the eyes

The eye liner I use it the Super Liner Superstar, That's a mouthful, by L'Oreal, It is a felt tip liner that has good precision, this would be great for any beginners that are just starting out with makeup. 

For lashes it has been Roller Lash by Benefit, It gives length and volume, what more can you ask for!

Brow's, I assume this comes under eyes, or maybe it should have its own heading? I have been using the sleek pallet in dark to achieve the brows I want.

Lips - 

Any nude, Pink, Coral lipstick that I own at the minute, it changes everyday depending on how im feeling at the time. 

I hope you enjoyed reading about the products I have been using, In the summer I am not as adventurous and tend to stay as natural as possible!

Until next time
