Can I borrow some blusher?’

‘Um no’

‘Bronzer?’

‘I can offer you concealer or mascara and an array of lip products! That’s it’

My make-up bag is a mess and proves exactly which make-up products I value.

Star items include my MAC Lip Liner in Whirl which is my go to colour throughout the year, Maybelline The Eraser Eye; super high coverage and blends really easily and Miss Sporty Studio Lash Mascara perfect for getting my peepers in check for multiple occasions.

Are you a make-up hoarder or a minimalist?

July Favourites|2015

Illamasqua Shadow in Stealth|got2b Tame&Shining Styling Oil|Soap&Glory Feel Good Factor|BarryM Gelly Nail Paint in Cotton|Rimmel Lasting Finish Liner in Spice.

July is over what!? I don’t think I have really stopped this month i’ve been filming on location quite a lot which has been great fun but again early mornings have meant not too much make-up. However I have been loving the Illamasqua Eye Shadow in Stealth which is a gorgeous matte cream colour which really helps to brighten up your eyes especially if it’s layered over a cream base. I have also been in love with the Rimmel Lip Liner in Spice which is a 90’s brown/red nude and very flattering with my pale skin.

I’m still not over my white nail obsession and turned to BarryM for a new one and thought I would try out the Gelly Hi-Shine formula. The lasting power of this with a top coat is insane and it’s super opaque after just one coat! My hair has been very much abused recently and so i’ve been trying to look after it with some styling oil mainly to get rid of the dryness and to tame the flyways, got2b Styling Oil is a really nice product which isn’t too greasy but still gets the job done and really smooths and provides shine to my hair. Lastly in July I was loving Soap&Glory Feel Good Factor which is a facial suncream with an SPF 25 which is amazing, it doesn’t leave your face feeling greasy and protects it from the sun.

What were you loving in the month of July?

M.A.C Studio Fix Fluid£22.00

Things got a little bit pose central whilst taking blog photos but this foundation makes your skin look so flawless its hard not to give your best blue steel.

I used to be a huge fan of the full coverage foundation and although most of the time now i’m more of a natural finish some occasions call for some fake tan and a full coverage foundation which is when I reach for this beauty. It’s really easy to blend and instantly smoothes and perfects the skin without looking cakey, a great wear time and with the added bonus of SP15.

Now normally i’m not a big fan of M.A.C foundations as they don’t match my pale skin but when i’ve got a tan NW25 is perfect and doesn’t make me look like i’ve been tangoed.

Are you a M.A.C foundation fan?

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.

Base

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?

No7 Skin Illuminator|Review

No7 Skin Illuminator in Peach£11.00

As the weather gets brighter I am looking for products that are going to brighten up my still winter dull skin, one of my favourite products to do this with is the N07 Skin Illuminator available exclusively to Boots. Its a gold shimmer highlighter, that I like to mix in with my foundation to add a subtle glow to my skin – no disco balls around! You could also use this as just a cheek highlight if you want even more of a subtle shimmer.

NARS does a similar product called Illuminator and the shade laguna is very similar to the No7 Peach but instead of spending £23 you only have to spend £11.
