Summer Make Up Picks

Summer Make Up Picks

Seems ironic sharing my Summer Make Up Picks with you when Summer so far has consisted of constant rain. I'm nothing the biggest lover of summer (i don't enjoy being sweaty, thanks) but even I'm missing warm, sunny days. The make up I'd pick during Summer isn't all that much different from Spring but they are lovely natural products to give that golden glowy look.

Summer Make Up Picks

Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless Foundation
A matte foundation isn't normally one I'd opt for in the summertime, i usually go for a light tinted moisturiser type formula but I'm really loving this foundation at the moment. It does actually have quite a light, almost runny consistency. I like to apply this with a beauty blender and it leaves my skin looking amazing - it dries matte but i find it gives me quite a natural and flawless finish.

Sleek Solstice Highlighter Palette
This is a new addition to my collection and it's a beautiful palette. I adore a good highlighter and in summer i love it even more to give that healthy sun kissed look. This palette comes with three powders and a cream highlighter - I'm yet to use the cream one but i love the powders. I actually use all three and layer them up, it sounds excessive but the glow it leaves you with is stunning.

Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick in Boheme
I've mentioned this lipstick quite a few times on my blog, it's the perfect summery shade and formula. It has a very similar formula to a lip butter so it's very light and moisturising but still has the same pigmentation as a lipstick - it's a very low maintenance product as it's easy to reapply on the go but it's also one of those products that fades naturally. Boheme is a gorgeous corally, orange shades that has a slight red undertone to it.

Summer Make Up Picks

Benefit Fine One One
This is a multi purpose product which is one of the reasons i love it so much during the summer, it's so quick and easy and it does your blush and highlight in one. One sweep across the cheek, blend it out and your good to go.

Benefit Gimme Brow in Shade 5
I've become quite obsessed with doing my brows recently, especially with all the new Benefit Brow products that keep popping up as magazine freebies. I adore the Benefit Goof Proof but for Summer it's all about products that are quick and easy. Gimme Brow fills in the brows, grooms them and sets them in place all in one go. It's quick and easy and i love how it leaves my brows looking.

Collection Work the Colour Lip Butter in Cappuchino
Whilst i love my Chanel lipstick, sometimes i want a lip colour that will go with everything and this is perfect for that because it is a very subtle brown toned nude. As it's a lip butter it has a lovely moisturising formula and feels lovely on the lips.

Barry M Nail Paint in Almond
This isn't particularly summery but i still love it and i'll still be wearing in frequently over hte next few months. It's the perfect nude shade and it just gives you that really clean and neat look to your nails.

These are the products I'll be reaching for the most this Summer. What about you?

  1. I still haven't tried Benefit's Fine One One as I thought it'd be a bit gimmicky, but maybe I should give it a try for summer! I'm always looking for easy and quick products to give me glow without much effort. Love the look of that Chanel lipstick, too!
