Summer is all about a dewy and glowy base, which I am all about so I have been rocking this look a lot recently. I thought I would share the products I have been loving and using to create an easy and natural makeup look, perfect for the summer. Warning this post contains a lot of MAC, you can tell I’m obsessed.
Nivea Light Moisturising Day Cream- Normal and Combination Skin
To prime my skin and leave it feeling hydrated I had use the Nivea Light Moisturising Day Cream. It doesn’t feel heavy on my skin, making it easy to apply my foundation over the top which creates the perfect base. It also contains SPF, so works in protecting my skin in the summer months. I love love love!
MAC Studio Fix- NW13
It’s not surprise that I have fallen back in love with this foundation after not using it for such a long time, as it is an amazing full coverage foundation which blurs any imperfections, yet leaves your skin glowing. It also contains SPF, so as well as looking good on my skin it also benefits it from damage due to the sun.
Rimmel Brow This Way Pencil
As you may have seen from my haul and first impressions post- see here I recently purchased this eyebrow pencil and I have been loving it since. I tend to prefer to use pencils to fill in my eyebrows as I feel it looks more natural yet also leaves them defined. For £2.99 it’s such a steal and doesn’t melt off your face or print onto your sunglasses, which is a bonus in the summer heat.
NYC Big Bold Volume Mascara
I am totally loving this mascara recently, it leaves my lashes looking so much longer and adds a lot of volume without crumbling or leaving marks underneath my eyes. My eyes stand out so much more when I wear this mascara. I am so impressed.
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer- Fair
This is one of my all time favourite concealers, and I am sure you will have heard every beauty blogger and youtuber rave on about how good it is so I wont ramble on too much about it. It’s so full coverage, hiding those dark under eye circles which I really need as it stops me looking like a panda and blurring any imperfections. It’s also super brightening, which is why I love using this in the Summer.
MAC Mineralize Skin finish- Medium
I love the Mineralize Skinfinish range from MAC and this powder is one of my favourites. It is super mattifying, which is great when you have oily skin like me, as it keeps your makeup in tact all day. This is essential in the Summer as it leaves me makeup in tact for the whole day.
Maybelline Master Sculpt- Light to Medium
This is one of my drugstore favourite bronzer/powder contour products, as it’s just the right shade to add some colour into your face to stop you from looking like Caspar the ghost especially if your skin is like mine, yet also defines your cheekbones.
MAC Strobe Cream
Damn, the MAC strobe cream leaves me looking like a highlighter goddess. I love using this on the tip of my nose, on the top of my cheekbones, in my cupids bow and under my brow bone to highlight these areas and boy does it glimmer. It’s great for during the Summer to enhance that sun kissed look and I will totally be purchasing the full sized product.
Urban Decay De Slick Setting Spray
The Urban Decay Setting Sprays are my ultimate favourite setting spray, as they work wonders in keeping your makeup in place. It is certainly an essential for me in the summer months, as it stops my makeup from melting of my face from the heat, I couldn’t live without this stuff.
