Updated Spring & Summer Makeup Routine ❤

Summer Makeup Routine
Hi Lovelies!
Hope you are all doing really well? I'm so happy it's the weekend and I've had quite a nice relaxed Saturday to be honest. The past few nights I've been having issues with blogger uploading my pictures blurry and it's been doing my head in! I'm not one to give in though, so i kept researching until I found a solution. I think it may be a blogger glitch, so I'm hoping it's going to be fixed soon. At the moment I have to go in and out of the html coding, so I apologise if I'm not on top of my picture game. I'm not sure about you, but at the first sign of Spring I like to try and update my make-up routine with a few more spring/summer inspired beauty products. So, I thought I would go ahead and show you how i'm updating my routine this spring/summer.I hope you enjoy this post lovelies and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below. If you would like to get a quicker response then you can always use my social media icons too!
Summer Makeup Routine
The Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow is quite a hybrid product in the sense that it's kind of a mixture between skincare and make-up! Even though the spring/summer normally brings more healthy looking skin anyway, I always like to have something to offer a helping hand. It really does give that very much coveted 'lit from within' look which makes it the perfect way to perk up your make-up, but also to give you a few cheeky skincare benefits too! It's a great product to have in your make-up routine for an instant lift. (Full Review Coming Soon)

Ha! I had to get this product in once again and yes I've admitted I'm completely obsessed/smitten with this foundation and I'm pretty sure I always will be. I don't tend to use it much in the Winter time, but come Spring I can't wait to feel it's light weight and totally skin like texture on my face. It's got the added bonus of SPF15 which makes it a gorgeous foundation to wear throughout Spring/Summer. I always like to swap out my fuller coverage foundations for a lighter option and the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation is a great way to get the feeling of a tinted moisturiser, but the coverage of a light foundation!

I always love to add the Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel back into my make-up routine in the Spring. It's a great multi-use bronzer and can be used as a base product, contour or even to apply a bit of colour to your neck and decollete area! It can sometimes look a little scary in the pot, but seriously it has so many uses and it's a really great bronzer in general. I always take this on holiday with me, as it's got me out of a few sticky situations where parts of my body haven't quite matched! We've all been there right?

If I had to recommend a bronzer/highlight duo this would be it. It's a little pricey, but it's certainly been in my routine since purchasing it a little while ago. The bronze shade it just perfect to achieve perfect definition and the champagne like highlighter shade definitely gives a 'Filmstar Glow' This duo is a great way to start adding a touch of glamour to your spring/summer make-up look, plus it has a seriously amazing mirror.

With the warmer weather on it's way it's not unusual for skin to start producing more oil, so it's a good idea to have a powder at hand to keep any oil/shine at bay. I always opt for the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders, as they are amazing at keeping your foundation in place without taking away your skins natural luminosity. 

I always feel like Spring is here when I start adding more peachy/coral lipsticks into my daily make-up routine. In the winter they just don't suit me, but I think a nice 'Coral' shade is a great way to update your make-up bag for spring!

I always feel like a gloss is a more summery make-up product, as in the Winter I find that the wind and rain is just a little too much to deal with. A gloss like the Chanel Glossimer is a great way to add more dimension to your lips and a touch of sass too, which is always a nice touch for the warmer months.

Another great way to update your make-up bag for Spring is by using a flesh colour eyeliner in the inner corners of your eyes and also along your water line. Even if your feeling a little tired, it will give your eyes an instant lift.

    1. The Ambient Lighting Palette is beautiful! It's pretty expensive, but there is pretty much everything you need in there! The lightest shade is perfect for a highlighter, the middle toned shade is great for an all over setting powder and the darker shade is amazing for adding warmth! :) Thanks for the comment X

  2. I've been having the same issue with blogger recently, it's so annoying having to add them in as html and takes so much longer! I love all of your spring/summer picks and they're pretty much all on my wish list, especially that Chanel foundation! Great post :) xx

    1. I totally agree! It can be used for SO much. I've used it on my neck/chest area so many times to blend it when I do a more bronzed look on my face and I haven't tanned :) X
