Having said that, in an effort to be a little less plastered in make up than I normally am, I tried to pare down the amount of products I normally use and keep things fairly natural. I did say I 'tried' though, some might say that there are still a lot of products here - ahhh, what the hell! :)
So to begin with I prepped my skin with the Charlotte Tilbury Eye Rescue and a tiny bit of Sunday Riley Tidal Cream.
Next I used the Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow as a glowy base followed by a tiny bit of the Maybelline Dream Bronze BB Cream This evens out my skin tone and adds a bit more 'bronze' to the face so it matches my body! To finish my base I used a little bit of the Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer in 02 Beige under the eyes, around the nose and on my chin.
For bronzer, I chose the Bagsy Ray of Sunshine Perfect Glow Bronzing Powder to add a bit of definition to the face. This is an almost matte bronzer and very similar to the Tom Ford pricey version! For blush, I used my go-to holiday favourite, The Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush in 'Tipsy' (difficult to get in the UK - you might have to get it shipped from the US) For highlight it had to be the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in 'Champagne Pop' bought for me by Stacey as a Birthday present and still much loved!
For brows I used my trusty Maybelline Satin Brow Pencil (and it's just run out, I'll definitely be repurchasing!) For the eyes I used the Dior Eyeshadow Palette in 'Sundeck'. This isn't widely available any more but you might still be able to get hold of it online if you're lucky. It's one of my favourite eyeshadow palettes for the Summer and I have Sandra to thank for this recommendation a couple of years ago! I've hit pan on some of the colours so that should give you some indication of how much I like it!
On to lashes, I used my two absolute favourites, the Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara (see my previous blogpost for more details on this!) and the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara
For the lips, my new Summer 'combo' - Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in 'Pink Venus' and Charlotte Tilbury 'Coachella Coral' Lipstick. This combination screams 'Summer' and I'm totally in love with it at the moment!
And here it is, the finished look!
What are your Summer go-to make up products? Any good recommendations? :)
