spring/summer makeup picks

Over the past few weeks I've been reaching for the same beauty products, I wasn't really aware I actually switched up my makeup when the seasons change but I'm all for a dewy healthy glow at the moment! To start with, the base of my choice has been the YSL touch√© √©clat foundation mainly because it's so light on my skin & there is nothing worse than cakey makeup, especially when we experience warm weather. I also love the radiance it adds to my skin, it helps perk up my dull skin tone & gives me that wide awake & fresh look. I'm kinda new to bronzers but have become addicted to wearing it every day now. My skin resembles the colour of a ghost so adding a brown powder to my skin scared me, but I'm so glad I've actually tried it! I apply the Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer with a small contour brush to add a little more definition to my cheek bones & then take a big fluffy brush to blend it all in & add a bit around my temples & jawline to give me some much needed colour! NYX Powder Blush in Peach has literally been on my cheeks everyday since I bought it last month. It's such a pretty shade & I find it really flattering against my pale complexion. Collection Work the Colour Eyeshadow Pencil in Vanilla Sky is a shimmery champagne eye shadow which is fuss free to apply, simply 'scribble' all over your eyelid & blend it with a brush or finger. I don't like to wear too much eyeshadow at the moment, I prefer a subtle wash of colour, a cat flick & a couple of coats of mascara & shimmery nudes are always a safe option, they go with everything!  As a pastel obsessive I've been trying to step out of my comfort & wear some more bright & daring nail polish. My favourite shade at the moment is Speed Dial by Ciate. It looks like it would be quite 'in your face' but it's actually an amazing coral based orange on my nails & I can imagine it would compliment a tan really well. A summer makeup routine wouldn't be complete without a highlighter, when the sun is shining you want the light to reflect of all the right places & 'highlight' those areas! MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle is the highlighter I regularly use on top of my cheekbones & also on my brow bone. Finally, I've been obsessed with Marc Jacobs Honey perfume, it's such a Summery scent, I've even been wearing it on rainy days to bring a bit of sunshine into my life!

What are your favourite makeup & fragrances for the Spring & Summer time?

  3. Soft and Gentle is the perfect shade for summer. My favourite summer item is the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Fragrance, it just smells like summer.
