My Summer Face

 My skin has been a lot better recently, so I've been turning down the Double Wear in favour of the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream. This offers a light coverage but still manages to even out my skin tone. It doesn't cover up any blemishes so this is where the MAC Studio Finish Concealer comes in which honestly covers everything and stays put all day. I use this on my undereyes but then I layer on the L'Oreal Lumi Magique Concealer Pen to highlight and brighten up my eye area. I also put this down the centre of my nose just to add a bit of highlight. To complete my base, I dust over a bit of my MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural just to set everything and to keep the shine at bay.

For my eyes I've been using my Maybelline Color Tattoo in Pink Gold as a base and then I've been using my MUA Heaven and Earth Palette. I use the first colour as a highlight, the third all over the lid and then the fifth on the bottom row in the crease to add a bit of definition. I then curl my eyelashes and apply Benefit's They're Real mascara*. CONTROVERSIAL OPINION: I know this is highly praised but I'm honestly just using it to use it up, I much prefer my cheaper Maybelline mascaras! I also use a MAC eyeshadow in Espresso to fill in my brows. I don't feel right unless I've done my brows!

On the apple of my cheeks, I've been applying NARS Orgasm for a flush of colour and a bit of a shimmer. Then, if I feel like I need it, I've also been using MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft & Gentle to add a bit of a highlight to my cheekbones, nose and cupid's bow. To finish off the look, I've been going for a more neutral lip shade such as Oriflame's Giordani Gold Voluptous Lipstick in Chiffon Rose*.
