Summer Beauty Essentials

August 11, 2017


Hello my lovelies!

I hope you're all having a wonderful summer! I realise I'm slightly late with this post as it's nearly the end of summer but I thought I'd squeeze it in anyway. 

Summer is all fun and games until your makeup is all dripping down our face. Don't you worry though, I've got you covered with some beauty essentials to keep you looking good this summer (or the couple of weeks that are left of it).

BB/CC Cream - Bourjois 123 Perfect Colour Correcting cream
This one is an all year favourite. I absolutely love BB creams, they're the everyday alternative to a full face of makeup. On days when you just don't feel like covering your face with makeup simply pat some BB cream on your T zone and under your eyes, and already your looking fresh and ready for your day. CC creams are very similar in that its a tinted moisturiser, the CC stands for colour correction which I specifically need. My face always has uneven tones, red patches, dark under eyes, it's all there. Simply evening that out I just feel more put together.

Warm Eye Shadows - Milani Everyday Eyes Earthy Elements Eye shadow Collection
With packing and moving back home, I've been very limited in terms of my eye shadow palettes as I still have everything in boxes. I've been living off three eyeshadow palettes, I know crazy! I hate not having the choice right there when I'm doing my makeup. However, out of the three, this one is hands down the one I've been reaching for the most over the past couple of weeks. The warm tones gives you the perfect summer look. Warm tones are also really popular now, yes I'm talking about the Heat palette which I haven't got yet, but the urge to splurge £40 will eventually take over.

Colourful Lippy -  Lush Strawberry Bombshell Lip Tint & Barry M Cor Balmy! Tinted Lip Balm
Nothing makes my day better than putting on a bright lippy. I still use the liquid lipstick because they are my life, however as the weather has been sunnier I've been opting for a more moisturising lippy. The Lush one is is always the showstopper, it says lip tint but I promise you, with enough layers that baby is so bright. People always ask me what I'm wearing it when I've got it on. I guess Fuchsia has just been this whole experience for me recently with us doing a photo shoot on the colour, check out the post here. The Barry M one is also a good one just to throw in your bag and put on when you're in need of moisture. The colour tint is just that awesome extra feature. 

Setting Spray - Makeup Forever Mist and Fix Setting Spray
A new step in my makeup routine, the setting spray. This one has been specifically helpful in the summer when my face just decides to get all sweaty. Sorry, dewy. When I first started using this I didn't really notice a difference however after trying it out for a while I really saw its true potential. You just notice that your makeup doesn't budge and stays perfect all day, it's a strange feeling. I've been working a lot over the summer too so you kinda wanna have makeup that can last your whole shift. 

That's it for today, thanks for reading, Dom x
