Hello there! Recently I have been experimenting to find a look that will last all through those hot summer days when your face feels like its about to melt off! This makeup is bright and natural-looking, and perfect for summer!
I didn’t use all these products for my look, what I have done is included a few different ones which you can choose between depending on your skin type and whether you prefer to use cream or powder products.
So let’s get into it then 🙂
First off, I applied rosehip Oil as a moisturiser which my skin has really been loving.
Then, after I had given it enough time to sink in I used my RMS lip2cheek in smile and placed it along the tops of my cheekbones. I was rather heavy-handed with this product because, I discovered this super awesome tip which I am really diggin’ right now: all you do is go over the top of the blush with your powder foundation to get a look that’s natural and ‘glowing from within’.
If you prefer powder blushes, or just want to try out an awesome natural blush, I HIGHLY recommend the Zuii Organic blush in ‘Melon’- a gorgeous coral-pink shade with just a hint of gold shimmer. Seriously I have been loving this blush for Spring and Summer, and I believe it has been touted as the natural dupe for the NARS Orgasm blush.
Next I went over my face with the Honeybee Gardens pressed powder in ‘Supernatural’. This colour is now perfect for my slightly tanned Summer skin, however in the Winter-time I use ‘Geisha’. Lemme just say- I freaking LOVE this powder!! It is so dense, gives AMAZING coverage, and yet still looks natural and slightly dewy, especially with well-moisturised skin underneath.
If you have really dry skin or prefer liquid foundation, I would recommend using RMS uncoverup along with the Terre d’Oc BB cream. I find that this BB cream is initially difficult to work into the skin, but as long as my face has been sufficiently moisturised, after an hour or two it ends up looking quite lovely, plus the colour is a perfect match at the moment. If you have really pale skin you probably won’t be able to use this, as Rose Petale is the lightest shade and it’s still rather dark 😦
Next up I lined the top and bottom of my eyes with my Dr. Hauschka eyeliner in 04. I find this preferable to a black eyeliner during the day as it looks more soft and natural to tie in with the rest of the makeup. Then I applied lashings of the Ere Perez Natural Waterproof Mascara, which I am STILL loving, especially in Summer when mascara is more likely to melt and transfer onto yo’ under-eye area (really not a good thing).
I used RMS uncoverup as an under-eye concealer with a small brush and also applied a bit of Living Luminizer to the inner corner of my eyes to make them pop. This product also works well when applied to the tops of the cheekbones and under the brow-bone.
After moisturising my lips with the Jurlique Lip Balm I went over it with my Zuii Organic lipstick in Pink Flesh, which is a beautiful nude-ish colour with just a hint of pink (hence the name lol). I find that this lipstick really compliments either blush and is also super moisturising. No dry lips here, girl!
Finally, if you wish to apply a bronzer, I have been loving Beach Bunny from Silk Naturals. The colour is definitely not orange and it has just a hint of shimmer to get you all in that fun Summer mood
Hope you like my go-to Summer makeup look! If you have any questions or would like me to review individual products, please feel free to leave a comment. 🙂
Have a lovely day, wherever you are!
