Summer Make-up Look

Hey guys,

The sun is still shining yay!!  I know I keep going on about it but seriously when do we ever get weather like this in London?!  So unfair I'm stuck at work though.  However, that doesn't mean we can't still dress and look summery in the office so here is a make-up look that I created.  I think this look is very versatile and can be worn for everyday or you could glam it up if you wanted for a summer night out.

To start off I primed my skin with Body Shop tea tree pore minimiser all over my skin.  Then I took Benefit You Rebel tinted moisturiser and also buffed that over my skin.  I wanted to use a tinted moisturiser instead of a foundation as I felt foundation can sometimes be a bit heavy in the summer and I wanted something light on my skin that didn't look like I'd caked it on.

Then I took Garnier roll on concealer under my eye and Rimmel Stay Matte powder over my t-zone and undereye to set the make-up.

After this I used Gunmetal from the Naked palette all over my eyelids.  I then took Naked and worked this in the crease and outer corner, making sure to blend it all in.  Then I took a matte black by Mac (Nehru) and pulled this along my lashline and outer corner, again blending it all in.  Then I used Dior Blackout mascara on my lashes and a little Virgin from the Naked palette for my inner corner.

After that I started on my eyebrows.  I have quite thick, dark eyebrows so I don't really need to fill them in much so instead I just brush through them with MUA eyebrow gel and then again take Virgin and put that along the brow bone.

I then went back to the eyes and drew the thinest line of liquid eyeliner.  I didn't want to make the eyes look too dark and heavy as this is a summer look and would look too harsh and 'clubbing' like.  I used my Barry M Wink marker pen as it's dead easy to use and I haven't got the steadiest of hands!  Once this was dry I used a pencil brush to just smug it across slightly.

Then I took Benefit Thrrrob blusher on my cheeks.  This is a really pretty cool pink colour and perfect for summer.  Definitely one of my favourite blushers as I'm a real lover of pink blushers.  After that I used Fake Bake Bronzy Babe on my cheek bones as a highlighter.  This bronzer has a real shimmer in it so I only really like to use it as a highlighter and it looks lovely on the collar bones also!

Lastly I put Mac Impassioned on my lips and some vaseline for a bit of shine.  I'm not really a fan of lipglosses so I prefer to use vaseline instead :)
