Summer Makeup Favourites

Wednesday, 26 July 2017

I'm not one to try loads of different makeup products, but these are the products that I've been using over the past couple of months!



 CC Cream- Loreal Glam Nude
Having never tried a CC Cream before, when I picked this up I didn't know what to expect. But I was amazed at the results of this from the first time I used it. It's the PERFECT summer base, it's so extremely light that you can't even feel it on. It blends like a dream and if you pop on some concealer and powder it's the perfect summer 'face' makeup. I have lots of hyper pigmentation and scars left over from acne, and whilst this doesn't cover them it certainly evens out my skin and gives me a healthy glow. I'd certainly feel comfortable going out with just this on - makeup wise of course.. 
This is definitely light to medium coverage but if you're after a super light summer base, that is quick and easy to apply this bad boy is for you. 

Foundation- Loreal True Match 
I've mentioned this foundation before, but I picked it up at boots in a mad rush so when my favourite foundation was out of stock. But safe to say I love this. It's got a great coverage and it's definitely buildable. What I've been doing at the moment, when I want more of a flawless base. For example if I'm going out-out. I'll apply a light layer of my CC Cream, then a light covering of this foundation, buffing it in with my favourite real techniques makeup brush. To add a little more coverage, before going in with concealer and then powder.

Concealer- Loreal True Match
After loving the foundation so much I thought I'd try the concealer to go with it. I think that the product is great, and it applies really easy. However this is a little to yellow for my skin tone and it's quite pricey for how little you get in the tube. I would re-purchase this, but only if my favourite concealer ( Rimmel- Match Perfection) is out of stock. 

Since trying this lip liner, I've pretty much used it every day. So it's safe to say it's been a summer favourite of mine! This is easily the creamiest, easiest to apply lip liner I've tried. I love it so much that I'm picking another one up this week. The only downside to this is that there's not as much product as there would be in a pencil liner. 

I've had this bronzer for a couple of summers now, but I've fallen back in love with it over the past couple of weeks. It's a lovely shade to pop on with a big fluffy brush to add that summer glow to your cheeks. A must have for holiday.

Would a summer makeup favourites post be complete without a glowy highlighter? I think not. A little of this product goes a long way. So a light dusting on your fan brush is plenty for your cheeks and under your brows. It's a bargain too!

Cream Eyeshadow- Rosie for Autograph
This was a birthday present a year or so ago, and it's perfect for an easy summer look. This is 100% coming with me to Corfu in a couple of weeks! Pop this on, and a lick of mascara and you're set to go!


What are your summer makeup favourites?
