I am starting a new series, where every Sunday I will post a daily makeup, showing which looks I have been loving to wear through the week. Throughout the coming week I will be posting a series of summer related posts to celebrate the fact that my favourite season is upon us! So to kick things of, here is my one of my favourite summery makeup looks!
So for my base, I first applied the Smashbox Photo Finish Oil Free Primer, which is SO light on my skin but also keeps my makeup stay put all day. Then I went in my favourite No7 Essentially Natural Foundation which gives a perfect light coverage without making my skin feel clogged up with makeup. I mixed this with my No7 Skin Illuminator which helps give my skin a beautiful glow. Concealing was with the one and only Collection Lasting Perfection, which I used underneath the eyes and then to finish I used the MUA Blush in ‘Candyfloss’ which gave me a great baby pink flush.
For the eyes I started with my No7 Stay Perfect eyeshadow in ‘Starry Lights’, which I use pretty much everyday as a base. Then I used my MUA Eyeshadow Palette in ‘Glitter ball’, using the matte pink shade all over the lids then buffing the shimmering pink into my crease to give a subtle shimmery pink look. For brows I used my No7 Eyebrow Pencil to slightly fill in the brows and also to comb them through. To finish, I used my favourite Maybelline The Falsies Mascara to give my lashes some volume.
To finish, I simply used the No7 High Shine Lip Crayon, in ‘Delicate Pink’ on the lips. This is the finished look.
This look is lovely for summer, it is very girly with lots of pinks, while also being very versatile, it can be delicate throughout the day like I wore it, or can be built up to a more intense look for the evening. Please let me know what you think, and whether you would like to continue seeing some more Daily Makeup looks!
