My Everyday Summer Makeup 2016

Hi everyone,
For today's post I wanted to share with you my everyday makeup routine for summer. When it's summer, I tend to go very natural and bronzed. This is the basic routine, but sometimes I might add in a highlighter or some eyeliner, but the products in this post are what I have been wearing recently, and is my go to look. Let's begin!

I have really been enjoying the Freedom Pro Studio Fixing Spray as a primer. It makes my skin glow and it isn't as heavy as my other primers. I find that it does take a while to sink in, but I will just do my eyes to fill in the time, but for the sake of this post I will just continue with the base makeup. Once the spray has set I will then go in with the L'Oreal True Match, I tend to just use one pump and that will cover my whole face. This foundation has spf 17 in, which is great for summer, and it gives a very nice satin finish. For concealer I use the Rimmel Wake Me Up and the Collection Lasting Perfection mixed, I usually just put the concealer in the places where I highlight; under my eyes, chin, bridge of my nose and my forehead. A new step I have added into my everyday makeup routine is cream contour. I have recently been using the Maybelline Contour Stick in the places I want to sculpt. Then I will just blend that in with my foundation brush until I am happy.
I will then set that concealer with the highlight shade out of my Seventeen Define and Conquer Contour Kit. I tend to pack in on a very dense brush and almost "bake" with it. I will then set my face with the same powder but with a more fluffy brush and also wipe off the "bake". For blush I have recently been using the Natural Collection Blush in Peach Melba, it is a matte peach shade that just looks very natural on the cheeks. It goes with every makeup look and I really like the formula. Finally for bronzer I use the contour shade out of the Seventeen Define and Conquer Contour Kit, I know this shade is suppose to be used for contouring but it is a little too warm for me. I will take this on a fluffy brush and just take it around the perimeter of my face and a bit down my nose.

During summer, I like to keep my eyes pretty basic. As a base I will Take the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Barely Beige and just put it on all over my lid. I will then pop a bit of the contour shade out of the Seventeen Define and Conquer Contour Kit in the crease and lower lash line. To brighten the eyes a little I will take the highlight shade out of the same duo on my brow bone and inner corner. To finish, I will curl my eyelashes and do a few coats of the Maybelline Colossal Go Extreme Waterproof Mascara on my upper and lower lashes.

For brows keeping it basic, I just fill in the spars areas of my brow in with the Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil and set it with the Primark Clear Brow Gel.

On an everyday basis, I will just stick to a gloss on my lips with a bit of pigment to it. My current favorite is the Victoria Secret Lip Gloss in the shade Totally Hot. It is super glossy and gives my lips a lovely pink tint.

I really hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know whether you would like these posts to be a seasonal thing. Have a great day!
