Finally we have had some nicer weather in the UK so today I thought I would show you what I have been reaching for when I want a nice light summery makeup look.
So I've been starting off with the Gosh CC cream I got this last summer and I absolutely love it. It's so hydrating a leaves the skin with a really lovely medium to light coverage however it can be built nicely without it caking up. I like to apply this with my fingers however it does also apply really well with both a beauty blender and a buffing brush. I've been applying a little bit of Urban Decay Naked skin concealer under my eyes for a little bit of concealing and highlight.
For the rest of my face I've been using Benefit Hoola pretty much all over my face to add some warmth to my skin, then using Clinique Berry pop on the apples of my cheeks for some colour. Berry pop is a stunning bright pink which ties in really well with the lip colour. It may look a little scary in the pan however it blends so beautifully. Finally for my face I finish everything off with the Balm's Mary-lou manizer which I basically once again put all over my face as I'm a little highlight obsessed at the moment.
For my eyes I've been keeping it super simple, a little bit of Urban Decay Primer potion to stop my eye makeup from creasing. Then shadow wise I've just been doing a super light wash of In the Spotlight which is one of the Makeup geek Foiled shadows. Finally for my eyes I've been finishing them off with lots of the MUA Volume mascara which is seriously incredible for it's teeny £2 price tag.
Brow wise I've been trying out Benefit Kabrow which I actually mentioned in my last post. I am just about getting to grips with using it and I really like it. It's brilliant for the warmer weather as it is pretty much smudge proof. I've been topping it off with my trusty Gimme brow just to make sure they don't move anywhere. Finally to finish off the look I've been using Bourjois Rouge edition in Pink pong which just really pulls the look together and adds that beautiful pop of colour.
