So I thought I would do something very different today and walk through how I did my make up for today. The weather in England is super hot right now so I wanted to do a really fun glowy make up look with products that are more likely to last!
Hi! This is me without make up on, I hardly got any sleep last night due to the stickiness of the weather so my bags are full on! Also, the camera is making me look really dark but in the next shots it sort of shows my real pale skin colour!
As you can see my spots are horrible right now and they are little dots so I wanted to use a good foundation and primer to sort that out. For primer I used the Nivea Express Hydration Primer which I’ve mentioned in a blog post before and did a review on it. This is a nice primer which gives a nice layer over your pores for the foundation to stick to. For foundation I used Max Factor All Day Flawless Foundation in Beige. This foundation is pretty full coverage and has a primer and concealer already in it so can be used by itself, but because it was hot I decided to double up! Then I used a damp sponge to blend that in!
I decided to go straight to my eyes after this to avoid any fall down issues so for eye primer I used Maybelline Color Tatto 24 Hr in the shade Creme de Rose it has also been mentioned in a blog post as a dupe for Mac’s paint pot in painterly and is a great primer. I then set that with my white shade in my Morphe 35P palette and used the warm light brown shade all over the lid, then gradually built up with a warm dark brown shade in my crease which created the perfect tone for an orange-toned summer look. I then switched over to my Morphe 35S palette and used the two first colours in that palette to create a shimmery summer look. I also used the white shimmer in that palette in my inner corner to highlight this. This is what I looked like at this stage with foundation and all the colours on:
Now for concealer I used the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Light under my eyes and in the areas that I’d usually highlight to create a nice tone. Then set my face with Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Silky Beige and went onto my Sleek Contouring and Blush Kit in Light which was my last review! I used all three in this palette together and it looks so nice. I then added a beautiful bronzer which was the Revolution Vivid Baked Bronzer in Golden Days. This made it such a nice summery look and this bronzer is only about £3 in superdrug would recommend!
Last but not least is these products:
- Rimmel Soft Kohl Eye Liner in Jet Black
- Rimmer Super Long Lash Mascara in Brown Black
- Soap & Glory Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in Nudist
- Collection Work the Colour Brow Kit (Middle Shade)
Last but not least I set my look using the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray which will probably be reviewed soon and I will take pictures of how this look lasted in this heat!
Here’s a few pictures of everything together!
