Hope you are all doing really well? I’ve just got through a 7 day week with a major event at work, so I’m glad for a day off today. I'm sorry I've been a little absent recently, but we've had two major events in close proximity at work, So I've really put all my time and energy into them. However, I really want to start getting into posting more make-up looks, as I love spending time on my make-up but I hardly ever take any snaps of the finished result (Maybe a few shameless Instagram Selfies here and there ha) The weather has been a little all over the place in the UK, but it's definitely getting warmer! So I thought I would go ahead and show you the make-up I'm wearing at the moment. Now I do love a bit of SPF built into my foundations and I like to try and incorporate a few SPF related products into my routine when the weather is warmer. I’m not a fan of applying a separate SPF lotion prior to my make-up application, as I find that it can leave my skin feeling a little greasy and uncomfortable, So I'm hoping you will enjoy this look lovelies. I would love to hear from you in the comments section below and don't forget you can always get in contact via my social media icons just to the right hand side of my blog.
After experiencing pretty bad sunburn under my eyes a few years ago I always try to be that little extra cautious about my eye area. After I've finished my skincare routine I apply my Clinique Superdefense Eye Cream, which I have been loving the past month. My favourite thing about this eye-cream is the fact it has a beautiful flesh tone tint, which makes it instantly brightening! It's also really light and comfortable and I've found it great under my concealer too. However, the most important part about this eye-cream is the fact it has a pretty impressive SPF20 which is the perfect solution to sore and uncomfortable eyes.
Sometimes I wake up in the morning feeling like my skin is still asleep! So I love to apply my Estee Lauder Daywear Tinted Moisturiser, which starts off as a grey formula and warms up to your exact skin tone. Even though it doesn't add coverage it really gives my skin a boost like nothing else, plus it's great under all of my foundations to give that coveted lit from within look.
Recently I have been loving the Clinique Even Better Foundation and I've had numerous comments on how good my skin looks, which of course is a good sign with any new foundation. I must admit I have only used a few Clinique products (Foundation not being one of them) and I've been truly impressed with this foundation. It has SPF15 and it's also oil free which is great for the summer, as during the summer my skin does get a little more oily. As I mentioned in my intro I'm not a fan of SPF lotions, so having an SPF in my foundation is a really big bonus. This foundation has moderate to full coverage, which is fantastic for work day's. Despite it having such good coverage, I never feel uncomfortable when wearing this foundation.
Working in the hospitality industry means that I need to look 'well groomed' at all times and there is one thing that makes me feel totally meh and that is dark circles, so I've been using my new NARS Radiant Concealer to cover up any pesky darkness.
I've mentioned this a few times, but for good reason! It's such a nice mascara that doesn't feel heavy at all. I must admit I'm a fan of more natural looking lashes and this is perfect for that kind of look!
This pretty much lives in my bag and it's become a real staple for me. Now you might be thinking why do you need a bronzer/highlighter for a natural summer look, but as most of you are probably aware we don't get the best weather in the UK (even in the summer) So I love to have this product on hand to help me achieve a naturally sculpted look
This is another CT favourite of mine, as it adds the most beautiful Pinky/Peach glow. It's really pigmented and instantly brightens the complexion.
Despite being a total lipstick addict... recently I've been rocking my own lip colour and the NUXE Reve De Miel Balm is the perfect way to add just a touch of shine to my lips. Plus its luxe formula even helps to give my lips a little more fullness.
This is a complete summer staple for me and I get a few bottles each year without fail. I sometimes spritz it onto bare skin if I'm having a few issues with redness or spots and I find that it's really amazing for calming down uncomfortable skin. I also love to spray it over my make-up a few times a day to refresh me and it's also great for making your make-up look alive again too!
I hope you have enjoyed this blog post lovelies. I find this look completely foolproof and it's also a really good look to wear to work or day's out. It's perfected without looking un-natural, plus it sticks around all day! I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below. Do you use any of these products?
