Summer Sun|FOTD


MAC Painterly|NARS Tinted Moisturiser|Sleek Contour Kit|Clinique High Impact|Maybelline Fit Me!|Carmex|No7 Skin Illuminator.

Summer calls for less make-up on a day to day basis, I don’t know why it just does and these products really haven’t left my face since the sun started shining.


If I wear a base at all I will reach for my NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser mixed with the No7 Skin Illuminator which adds a very subtle glow from within look to your skin. The concealer that I can’t stop reaching for is an old classic the Maybelline Fit Me! it’s a perfect colour match, not to thick but still creamy enough to glide on seamlessly. To contour out those cheekbones I am loving the Sleek Contour Kit its not too muddy on my fair skin and blends easily. The Contour Kit also comes with a highlighter which adds a little more shimmer to the face without letting you look like a glitter ball.

Finishing Touches

MAC Painterly Paint Pot as a base all over the lid, to get rid of any discolouration on the lid and then lashings of mascara, i’m currently using the Clinique High Impact Mascara which adds a lot of length to the lashes. Due to laziness i’ve just been applying Carmex to my lips to keep them moisturised.

Do you wear more or less make-up in the summer?

Nude Eye Bases



Painterly|On and On Bronze|Permanent Taupe|Creamy Beige.

I love neutrals and I don’t care who know it. They suit my pale skin and means your lipstick and clothes will never clash. I also love one swipe wonders, here are my four favourites – surprise surprise three of them are Maybelline Colour Tattoo’s.

MAC Painterly Paint Pot is an eye primer but also cancels out any discolouration on the lids for the days when you want nothing coloured on your lids but a smooth base for your eyeliner. A slightly more pricey product but a little bit goes a long way.

When I want a coloured eyeshadow base or easy eye look I reach for my Maybelline Colour Tattoos and have a variety of colours. On and On Bronze is instant glamour in a tub, a shimmering bronze colour which adds warmth to your eyes. Permanent Taupe is a grey taupe colour – funny that. It’s matte and is the perfect base for a smokey eye. Another matte although it has a more satin finish is the shade Creamy Beige this is the perfect one swipe wonder and again adds warmth to your make up.
