I have decided to updat my make up routine for the summer (not that it feels like it!). For the summer I like to have more of a glow and use long lasting products which I know won’t budge through out the day.
I like to keep things pretty matte in the summer and know that my make up isn’t going to run down face. I absolutly love the Stay Matte Primer from Rimmel, I recently re discovered this and have fallen in love! I then apply the Loreal Infallible Matte foundation using a damp beauty blender over my face and blend it down my neck. This foundation is great in the summer, it does not go shiny at all! I then set my make up using my ever so brilliant Rimmel Stay Matte powder which is the only setting powder I ever own, and I actually have 3 on the go right now.
To contour my face I use the bottom middle shade of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit in Light. Then to add some colour to face I have been loving the Ambient Lighting Edit palette from Hourglass. Up until last week I had never used the bronzer shade! But now I love that colour so much I use it daily! It gives such a pretty golden sunkissed glow. I then use the middle blush shade and then to highlight I use the top middle shade.
Recently I have been switching up my mascara pretty much daily, but of course the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara is my favourite.
For eye shadow I like to keep it fairly light but have a pop of colour. All over my lid I used the 4th shade on the 2nd row for some shimmer and then I used the purple matte shade above it in the crease to add dimension. I the. Use the last shade on the 2nd row as a liner as this gives a softer look rather than using a liquid liner. And then I highlight my inner corner of my eye and brow bone using the first bottom highlight shade.
And the final touch, brows. For a natural looking brow I like to use a powder as it gives a softer look. I have been using the Milani Brow Fix in blonde and then setting them using the More Brows brow mascara from Model Co. This just makes my brows look so put together and they do not budge!
