My Summer Make Up Favourites

Picking out summer make up has always been one of my favourite things to do as soon as spring hits. I always feel uber excited deciding on the lovely pinkier tones for my eyes and cheeks as well as the lighter bases for my face. Now that autumn is upon us, I wanted to squeeze out that last bit of summer by sharing my make up favourites for the season with you all.

As soon as the hot weather hits, I always switch my base to something a lot more lighter and my number one choice is always Caudalie's Radiance Tinted Moisturiser in Medium. It's super light, easy to apply and contains SPF which is always very important. Along with the Becca Ever Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, they work amazingly together to create a base that lasts. I took this combination with me on both my recent sun holidays and absolutely loved it. To keep my skin matte throughout the day, I usually opt for the Bareminerals Bareskin Perfecting Veil, which is a lightweight powder with reflective particles to keep my skin looking radiant at all times. Finishing off my base, I have never let the Becca x Jacyln Hill Shimmering Perfector in Champagne Pop out of my sight since I got it last year, so it was an obvious choice for my spring/summer make up face. I also discovered my love for the Too Faced 'Sweethearts' Blush in Flush Blush which leaves my skin with the most prettiest flush of colour.

For my eyes, I've gone for something more pinkier and sweeter and the Bareminerals READY Eyeshadow Palette from the Lovescape collection is perfect for creating that no-effort look. The touch of shimmer in the eyeshadows are pretty and the colours of each shadow is super pigmented and lasts ages on my eyelids. Over to eyeliner and lashes, this Dolce & Gabbana combo is my absolute favourite! The Intense Liquid Liner is so rich in colour and precise in application, I literally cannot fault it at all. It's also waterproof which made it perfect for my holidays. A layer of the Intense Waterproof Mascara is all that is needed to complete my summer make up face thanks to it's water and humidity proof formula. Lastly, for my brows, I haven't stopped using the Ardell Brow Pomade which is easy to apply, highly pigmented and blends effortlessly. The spoolie brush that comes with the set is a godsend in distributing the product evenly on to my brows and creates the most natural look.

    The Two Faced Sweethearts blush is so adorable! It’s definitely on my wishlist. For summer I love to keep it as simple as possible and lately I’ve been wearing only mascara on my eyes and skipping eyeshadow! 🙂
