Summer Beauty

Summer Beauty 2018

In the summer time I like to wear minimal makeup as possible but of an evening when going out, I cant help myself and love creating a nice smokey eye look. The day time I like to wear a tinted moisturiser. The one I use is from Avon called True Nutra Effect Radiance Tinted Moisturiser SPF20. It normally costs £6 but currently on sale for £3 at the moment. The product appears to be white but once applied its gives you a nice tint and glow.

For the evening time I like to use Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette, it is very pigmented and has a creamy formula which makes it very easy to blend out when using a blending brush. If you are on a budget when it comes to cosmetics but still want to get a few products that are good quality, I highly recommend Makeup Revolution. They are reasonable priced, even the packaging is cute. You can get a £4 eyeshadow palette and their concealer has been compared to Tarte shape tape concealer. 

When it comes to lips I use the brand MAC. Mac Velvet Teddy has always been my favourite and goes with everything. Its a natural dark nude colour with a hint of pink. I love using this with Spice lip liner or the colour whirl. 

 

Top Three Beauty Products I Use Everyday

I thought I would share with you guys the top three beauty products that I LOVE and use everyday! Before applying my makeup I love using award winning manuka doctor gold dust firming serum. This adds a lovely glow to the skin and makes my skin look my healthy and fresh. I like to use serums as they have a less greasy feeling on the skin and they absorb faster. I have combination skin so using a serum is perfect as this will stop my face from looking and feeling oily.

  1. Manuka Doctor Gold Dust Firming Serum
  • Clinically proven, after just one application skin looks more radiant, smooth and more even toned
  • Clinically proven, in 28 days skin feels firmer and facial contours more defined
  • Noticeable long lasting moisturisation

2. MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick

For my everyday look, I always apply MAC velvet teddy lipstick, it moisturises my lips and has a nice scent. It is a very pretty colour and makes your lips have a bit of a tint which is what I love! Kylie Jenner is also a fan of this lipstick when she first got her lips enhanced this was her go to lipstick, in the picture below shows Kylie wearing the lipstick along with the lip liner by MAC in the colour SOAR.

3. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer

Nars radiant creamy concealer is perfect for concealing dark circles under the eyes and hiding imperfections. I love this concealer because it lasts through out the day, I do like to add a translucent powder over the top to give a nice smooth look to your skin. NARS Radiant creamy concealer has been voted the best concealer in the US.

Natural Makeup Look

For everyday makeup I try to keep it as natural as possible but I can’t help to add eyeshadow, I like using a brown colour as it makes my eye colour pop and still looks natural looking. I like to add a lipstick, I use MAC Velvet Teddy and Spice Lip Liner, I think they are a great combination to use.

For eyeshadow I used Gwen Stefani Urban Decay Palette. I applied Blonde all over my lid as a base and then took my crease brush and applied the colour zone and blended that into my crease. The colours in this palette are just fantastic and really pigmented. I like to use my MAC FIX + spray and apply this on my brush, this makes the eyeshadow pop and last longer. I have had this palette for some time now and I always use it. They have a variety of colours so I never get bored of using this. I applied Mascara and eyeliner to finish off my eye look.

For foundation I like to use my Born This Way Foundation by TooFaced, It has a great coverage and is great for all skin types. I have combination skin, which is oily around my T-zone and dry everywhere else on my face. For moisturiser I use my Manuka Doctor Gold Dust Firming Serum, this gives me a gorgeous glow and keeps my skin hydrated.
