Last week I shared my summer body skincare picks with you and I thought I’d show you what I’m turning to for my summer makeup. These is my day to day look that’s pretty simple and natural, nothing too fancy but perfect for the office.
Skin 79 Purple BB Cream – This is a consistent summer favourite for me. It’s easy to apply and gives great coverage as well as protecting skin with SPF40. You can’t beat a BB cream for glowy summer skin. You can see my full review of this here.
Makeup Forever HD Powder – I’ve developed a real love for this powder. It does a great job of setting makeup without looking cakey and does blur out skin particularly around my nose. I just ran out of it a few days ago and I miss it already!
Buff Sheer Glo in Movie Star – I like my makeup to look fresh and dewy for summer and this highlighter from Buff Makeup is just gorgeous. It’s a cool highlighter with no hint of shimmer or glitter which suits me. I apply it to my cheekbones and cupids bow for a fresh look. You can see my full review of this here.
NYC BB Beautifying Blushable Cream Stick – I had this knocking around my stash for a while but it’s just lovely. The pigment is really strong but easily blended out to leave a fresh hint of colour. It has great staying power as well. These are also great value at just €3.49.
NYX Butter Gloss in Peaches and Cream – I’m not a big lipstick wearer so I prefer a gloss type finish. I can’t believe I only just got around to trying the butter glosses a few weeks ago! I feel like the last person to the party on these. They’re lovely and moisturising with a great hint of colour for just €6.49.
Kiko Long Lasting Eyeshadow Sticks – I’m keeping with the cream product trend here! These Kiko sticks have a great consistency and are so easy to apply to eyelids. I’ve been wearing shade Rosy Brown (05) which is a nice burgundy tinted brown.
