Summer Make Up Menu

Although it is gloomy and grey outside at the moment, at Raining Cake HQ, I am all about the summer make up. As with every year, I opt for lighter bases, golden eyes and pink lips. So in this season’s make up menu, I have chosen all of my current favourites for today’s post.

I started off by priming my skin with The Body Shop’s Instablur (*), followed by a layer of Caudalie’s Vinoperfect Tinted Moisturizer (*). Setting with a dusting of Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder (*), I then lightly contoured with Charlotte Tibury’s Bronze & Glow. For my eyes, after priming with The Body Shop’s Instablur Eye (*), I applied shades Cream, Gold and LT.Bronze from the Lorac Pro Palette to my eye lids. Liner-wise, I used my most-loved Soap & Glory Supercat Liner, on my lashes, the Bourjois Volume Glamour Max Holidays Mascara and on my brows, the Delilah Brow Line Eyebrow Pencil in Sable (*). Lastly, on my cheeks, I opted for the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Tipsy and for my lips, the Chantecaille Lip Chic in Moroccan Rose (*).

Do you like the finished look? What is on your make up menu this summer?

    I've started wearing eyeliner now which is a massive thing for me as I can never keep a steady hand but I really like it and its green!
