Summer Make Up Essentials

10 Aug 2016



Hello everyone, today's post is all about my everyday summer make up essentials and what make up I use when the weather starts to get a little warmer. I try to avoid using liquid foundation when the sun is out as I hate the feeling of a 'sweaty face'. I also struggle to tan my face so its always very pale compared to my neck and chest so I try to put as little on my face as possible. 

The time balm concealer is great for covering spots but sometimes I use it to cover my under eye circles as its one of my darker concealers. Before applying it to my face i add one drop of the body shop tea tree oil into the pot concealer to loosen the consistency and make it easier to apply. I then powder with the soap and glory kick ass powder as it is light and doesn't make the concealed areas appear orange. I bronze using the rimmel natural bronzer to give a sunkissed look and apply this all over my face, concentrating on my tzone, temples and cheeks. I use the benefit high beam on the high points of my face. I use benefit's gimme brow and brush that through my brows and then apply 2 coats of maybelline lash sensational mascara to my top lashes. I then finish by applying nyx butter gloss to my lips.
