Summer Makeup bag

22 May 2014


With the weather getting hotter my makeup bag has gradually been reducing, I can't stand having a face full of makeup on a hot day so I like to turn my makeup bag into a few light summer products for the hotter months.

Starting with a base i'm loving the L'oreal nude magique blur primer to give skin a smooth, poreless, blemish free base to start with. I also love that this helps makeup stay a little bit longer in the heat. I then use my Nars sheer glow foundation with its light coverage its great for a hot day as you don't feel weighed down with foundation, but it still gives you a beautiful glow and a good coverage to event out skin tone. I've been using the L'oreal nude magique BB powder to keep shine at bay through out the day, my skins been a little bit oily in recent weeks and this helps to carry on with a lovely completion throughout the day!

For a subtle hint of colour I use Macs Dainty blusher on the apples of my checks, this is a beautiful light pink shade with a little bit of shimmer to bring out cheek bones. I keep my eyebrows the same all year round, I use Soap and Glory's archery brow pencil to fill them in and Benefit's gimme brow to set them into place for the day. I then use a generous coating of L'oreal's miss manga mascara to give my lashes volume and thickness. I suffer with really bad allergies and hay fever so all summer long you can find me with my eyes streaming, so I tent to stay clear of eyeliner and shadow most days, sadly.

What are your favourite products this summer?
