So as some of you may know.. The sunshine has at last arrived in the UK and is set to last a few days and us women, have to adapt our make up in order to not turn into snowmen!
My routine has changed quite a bit as I have normal/combination skin (oily t-zone) and wear a hijab.. The effects of the heat need to take a drastic change on my makeup!
Face primer is L’oreal Lumi Magique which has a pearl finish and looks excellent when lightly brushed on the high points of your face under foundation
Foundations are Bourjour Healthy Mix Serum (shade 54) and Bourjois Bio Detox (shade 52) which match up to a nice shade and also mix well together giving me a glow but not overly dewy finish
Concealerr has to be Vichy Dermablend Concealer which I have fallen in love with! I’m in shade number 11 Porcelain!
Eye liner for the winged look is Maybelline Gel Eyeliner in Black using their excellent brush which I love! And Avon Supershock in black in my waterline which I think makes light coloured eyes look ultra sexy in the sun!/li>;;;
Mascara is Maybelline Illegal Length in black because I don’t want something too thick which will mask my cat eye so choose a lengthening mascara which feminises my eyes
On my cheeks I use the Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain in shade 1 which looks like a red translucent liquid in the tube but this FOREVER in the heat and I feel it’s the eat for sunny days
Eye shadows are a mix of some of the colours from the the Sleek Au Nataurel palette whereby I mix the 4 middle colours to create a neutral coloured bright eye, highlight the brow bone with the matte white shadow and perhaps use the champagne colour in the inner corners to reflect some sun
Lips.. I’m going practical and loving the Body Shop Born Lippy in the Pomegranate flavour which also has the most gorgeous coral tint to it!
Thank you to my brother who told me of a Bodyshop treat going on ATM! Enter free50 at the checkout and get 50% off on your shop!
Quite easy to find and affordable products here! Take advantage of 3 for 2s cause there are a lot of same brands here and also.. Keep your eyes peeled for summer sales!
This make up also lasts for AGES and is so effortless! I wear my make up for around 16 hours!!! And it usually stays on quite well and the only thing I touch up on is lip balm! Definitely an easy one! For all you high enders.. I’ll give you alternatives!
P.S. If you want a powder.. Go for Rimmel Stay Matt! It’s really lightweight and comes in a versatile Translucent shade!
