Simple Summer Makeup

 Hello all hope your doing well xxxx

When the weather is really hot I can hardly bear putting makeup on so I tend to keep it very simple and very light. I thought I would share some of my favourite summer makeup products which won't leave your skin feeling cakey or uncomfortable.


No7 Essentially Natural Founation is £9.95 and I have it in the shade Warm beige. This is a lovely light foundation with fairly good coverage (I personally do not like the high coverage look so this product is perfect) This foundation is apparently a dupe for the Dior BB cream not that I would know as I have never tried the Dior one! It comes in 12 shades which is quite a few compared to others of a similar price range. 
Bourjois Bronzing Primer is £9.99 and I usually use this as a tinted moisturizer when I don't want to wear any makeup but feel my skin needs a little colour. It is a really nice mousse like consistency and it is so soft on the skin. It is meant to be worn under your foundation to give a natural glow I have found that you can also use on top of your foundation as a normal bronzer. I love this product as I feel it is very versatile and it smell gorgeous.
Soap and Glory Kick Ass Concealer is £10.00 and I have had it for absolutely ages. Concealer is essential and this product has a beige toned concealer to cover blemishes and then a peachy toned one to conceal your under eyes and then a pressed translucent power on top.


Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo in 35-On and On bronze is £4.99 and these have been raved about in the beauty blogging world so I won't go on about them as you are probably sick of hearing about them all I shall say is I love this shade as it is very natural and easy to wear.
Maybelline The Falsies mascara is £7.99 and is a very good mascara; it curls really well and my lashes don't fall throught the day. I love the shape this mascara gives my lashes. You can either go for a natural look with a few sweeps of the wand or you can load up the product to give a more dramatic look (dramatic is such a cringy word sorry couldn't think of another word!!)


Revlon lip butter in Tutti Frutti is £7.99 and gives a nice light sheen of colour to the lips. It is a coral, orange colour which is very flattering and suits most skin tones. I also have one in Rasberry Pie but that is more of an Autumn shade. This is one of those lipsticks which you can just thrown in your bag and top up on the go with no mirror. I don't think it has any shimmer in it but I could be wrong.
Clinique Chubby Stick in whole lotta honey is £17.00 on Boots but is much cheaper here at home (around £12.00 I think) I was given this lipstick by my mom's best friend Jane and I blame her for my make up addiction, her house is like an Aladdin's cave of beauty products. She gave me this lipstick a couple of years ago and I am now on my third tube of it. It is the perfect "your lips but better" shade. I go off it occasionally and find something else to become obsessed with but then end up going back to it again!

Right that's all lovelies thanks for reading see you soon!!!!!
Lot's of love
