My Summer Makeup of Choice

July 3rd  •  Posted in Beauty

I’m not being a huge makeup girl recently, I only wear makeup once or twice a week and always stick to the same products. I’m not even buying new ones since a while which is a shocking news but true, I just feel I already have everything I need and being that I don’t wear makeup all that often, I like to stick to some faithful products I know they always work wonders and won’t disappoint me. Also now that the temperature are rising I don’t really like to apply way too much stuff on my face, and this is why I’m sticking to this minimal routine religiously…

I wouldn’t wear a foundation at all if only I had clear skin, but unfortunately having acne prone oily skin in summertime means I need to cover a lot of bad skin situations. I try to keep it quite light and simple though, and for that I’m loving the Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream (£9.99), which is a super lightweight offering with a great coverage and three different pigments to cover fatigue signs, redness and spots. These is a great base for summertime, very lightweight but with a nice coverage, and I really like the finish and the texture it gives to my skin. For any touch up on spots and acne scars, but also to cover those bad dark circles of mine, I’m back in love with my NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (£22) a very creamy offering which goes on super smoothly covering everything up and leaving a nice natural texture, this never ever creases on me and it lasts a really long time on as well.

As for blush I’m a fan of cream formulas all the way in summertime as I find they last a lot longer on the cheeks and look better: I’m loving the Bourjois Cream Blush in 02 Healthy Glow (£7.99), which is a super lovely peachy shade that give a nice healthy look to those pale cheeks of mine. This Bourjois blushes have the best lightweight cream-to-powder texture and give the most natural glowy look out of all the cream blushes I tried. On my lips I’m building a love affair with the Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Lovelight (£15), a beautiful sheer peachy colour containing tons of golden shimmers which just look so nice, natural but shiny on my lips this summer. I love the hydrating formula which always feels rich and smooth on my lips, and the subtle pink/peachy color which simply pairs with everything I wear and it’s never too much. As for my lashes I love a good waterproof mascara all the year around but especially in summertime when I don’t want anything to smudge around my eye area: I’m a fan of the L’Oreal False Lash Telescopic Mascara (£10.99) waterproof version, which is great to separate and blacken my lashes and hold the curl perfectly which is all I can ask from a mascara!

What is your makeup of choice this summer?
