So, now that summer has arrived in England it’s all about the minimal make up – well for me. Today was the first time this year I’ve gone out in the heat with make up on so I thought I’d show you what I wore.
So, for summer I always like to wear as little base product as possible so, I only used half the amount of foundation I usually use. I also mixed the foundation with Benefit liquid highlighter in “Moonbeam” which is now discontinued (boo!) to give it a glowing finish. I skipped concealer because my under eyes actually looked presentable. I also didn’t bother concealing any of the light scarring on some parts of my face just because they are aren’t that bad and I was going for a natural look. Keeping with face products, for my cheeks I used a cream blush to give that extra dewiness. What I love about this cream blush is that it has no glitter or shimmer in it but has a glowiness to it. Moreover, the “soft cooper” really adds a a natural peachy colour to the cheeks which is the look what I was going for.
For my eyes I wanted to add that summer glow so I very subtlety put MAC “Swiss chocolate” eye shadow through the crease just for some definition and also to keep with the warm hues on the rest of my face. I always like to lay down my crease colour first so that I can control the dramaticness of the definition in the crease. Then on the lid I put down MAC “Expensive pink” eye shadow which is gorgeous because it’s the ultimate rose gold shadow, and even though it’s duo chrome you won’t look like you’ve walked out the 80’s. Obviously, I swished my MAC 217 around so it looked seamless. I skipped eyeliner and applied lashings of L’Oreal telescopic mascara which isn’t in the picture because I’m a divv. (Does anyone use that term anymore?)
For my lips I used Kiko’s glossy lip liner in 605 which is a straight up orange. Even though it’s a lip liner I wore it alone. I wore it sheerly because I wanted everything on “da face” to ties together rather than clash.
So that’s my peachy summer make up look very simple and quite natural. If anything was the focal point it was the glowing skin which I think is nice in Summer.
Tell me what’s your favourite make up look in summer? Do you like peachy make up?
