Summer Beauty Favourites
During the summer, I do like to tone down my makeup, keep it simple and light, depending on what I’m doing or how I’m feeling, but I’m a makeup addict, so I can’t possibly keep my makeup toned down all the way through summer.. So I’v found some amazing products, new and old, nearly all super affordable & easily available at your local drugstore, that are perfect for the summer depending on the look your wanting to achieve. ps ‘perfect’ is used a lot through this post.
Here are my favourite makeup products to use for either a natural summer look or an all out & bronze it up look.
– For a light, fresh look the new Rimmel #Insta Flawless is perfect. Personally, I prefer full coverage foundations, but I love a skin tint with a glow when I’m going more natural
– Maybelline’s Super Stay 24h is a foundation I’ve always loved, especially in the summer. Teamed with a setting powder this foundation lasts all day long and gives a high coverage
– To give you a subtle toned down look or a full on flawless look, the Collection Lasting Perfection is the one to go for. Ideal for days when your just not feeling foundation but you still want to cover a few blemishes.
– When your wanting a concealer to finish off your makeup look & last all day, the Maybelline 24h Concealer is the best
– Both the Younique Mineral Touch Pressed Powder and the Clinique Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder are musts for the summer. Both offer full coverage with minimal effort & keep your makeup in place all day. Perfect for those with a more oily skin type, especially in the summer.
– The new MUA Pixel Perfect Blush in Pink Blossom is foolproof when it comes to a achieving the perfect bronzed look. Since we’re all bronzed up, a natural pink tint is needed for the cheeks. It’s so beautiful & subtle.
– The Maybelline Studio Blush gives you a naturally blushed look, it’ll always be one of my faves.
– The Makeup Revolution Bronze, Shimmer & Highlight is faultless when it comes to adding that summer glow to your face with out too much shimmer. It looks natural and flawless.
– The Maybelline Bricks Bronzer Blondes is a nice mixture of mattes and shimmers so you can go all out and bronze yourself up while still being able to achieve a natural sun kissed look.
– As I mentioned in my Quick & Easy Contour post, The Maybelline Master Contour Duo Stick is simple, soft, natural looking & so easy to use for a no makeup, makeup look.
– The new Kate Sculpting Palette is ideal if your wanting to go in with the contouring & highlighting. It’s beautiful and powerful, with just the right amount of shimmer. Plus the blush is gorgeous.
– For a pretty pink, more toned down, perfect for summer look, I have 2 favourites: The Bourjois Smokey Eyes Trio in the colour Rose Vintage & the MUA Baked Trio in the colour Pink Sorbet. Both trios are so beautiful and natural and are both buildable for a full on smokey eye depending on what look your going for.
– For a summer bronzed look, nudes, golds & coppers are unquestionalable. One of my favourite quads is the Rimmel Glam Eyes Quad in the colour Sun Safari, it’s got the 4 perfect colours for summer
– The Rimmel Kate 42 is a beautiful nude that suits any natural summer makeup look. It’s soft, pretty & easily wearable
– Pinks are perfect for the summer, and easily worn with a natural look just to add a pop of colour. My fave pink shade right now has got to be the Collection Field Day lipstick in Fuchsia.
– I don’t really change up my mascara specifically for the summer. but if I had to choose one that would be perfect, I’d go for my all time favourite, Avon SuperShock Mascara (review here) You can achieve any look you want with this.
