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?

NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser£29.00

I have wanted to try the NARS Tinted Moisturiser for ages but have never been able to justify the price tag to myself but luckily I had some vouchers to spend and couldn’t resist picking this up. I was advised by the sales lady to go for the shade Finland which suits me perfectly, its the lightest shade which has both pink and yellow undertone.

Now as someone who normally loves the full coverage look I was surprised how much I loved the light weight coverage. It smoothes out the skin and provides enough coverage to cover redness but still let my freckles shine through. It also adds a subtle radiance to the skin and has the added bonus of SPF 30 which is great for a pale skinned girl like myself.

It is a hefty price tag but if unlike me you only want one base in your make-up kit this will last you ages as a little bit goes a long way and I will definitely be re-purchasing!

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation£31.00

Pale girls rejoice NARS are another company who loves us!

The NARS Sheer Glow is not really sheer at all, I would say it was more of a medium to full coverage which means it gets a tick from me. It gives you a flawless base with a satin finish perfect for us dry skin girls out there; it adds moisture to the skin as well as smoothing it out. However the Glow part of the name is true it gives your skin that glowing from within look without looking overly shiny.

I can wear two shades in this range first is Siberia the palest shade in the range it caters for people who have both yellow and pink undertones in their skin neutralising everything but I can also wear Mont Blanc (the second lightest shade) which is far easier to get a hold of on the counters. I love to apply this with the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush but this is also a great foundation to apply with your fingers.

If you struggle to find a foundation that matches your skin tone check out NARS!
