My Summer Go To Make Up Look

My Summer Make Up | Tea And Beauty

I love summer, the birds are all out and you can go for long walks in the park and visit the ducks, hopefully you also get some nice weather. Lets be honest England is a bit hit and miss these days, however I am glad we have a sudden burst of lovely weather. I am trying not to moan but it is rather on the muggy side. I wish it would be hot during the day but cool off at night, as this is my problem I am struggling to sleep. But along with summer comes gorgeous summer make up. I like to go for a nice light look, and nothing particularly to heavy.

I always start off with my NYX Colour Correcting Concealer Pallete. I got this a few weeks ago and I absolutely love it. On the odd time I haven't used it I have really noticed the difference. This will cover red patches, acne scarring and under eye bags.

Next up I go with a light weight foundation and I have been loving the Collection Illuminating Touch Foundation. It goes on really well and isn't to heavy, I hate heavy foundation in the summer, nobody wants foundation caking or running off your face whilst you are hot and sweaty. I also use Collection's Lasting Perfection Powder Foundation to set my face, plus I like to go for a matte base.

For my concealer I have teamed my NYX Pallete with Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer. I love this as it has a great little brush you can just dot it or swipe it on with and either tap it in with your finger or even use a concealer brush or sponge. It gives me that bright eyed, wide awake look even after a bad nights sleep.

Now my eyebrows I have been switching about a bit recently. If you saw my post on xameliax you would have seen that I have been using the Fab Brows Brow Kit. I have been loving this, it is great in this hot weather or for when you are going to the gym. It is a semi permanent brow kit that is water proof and sweat proof. This makes it perfect for the hot summer weather. However when it's not so hot I tend to go with my trusty Benefit Brow products. I have Gimme Brow, Goof Proof and Ready, Set Brow. I absolutely love these products, I was only really starting to use them this year and they have been amazing. Whether I am using the Fab Brows kit or the Benefit products I always use Ready, Set Brow to keep my hairs in place.

For my eyes this year I have been using the Maybelline Blushed Nudes Pallete. In fact I think it's the only think I have been using. It has really beautiful shades of pink, rose gold and browns. The great thing is you can use them all individually or mix and match the colours. I finish off with a coat of No7 Lash Impact Mascara. This gives my lashes great volume.

As for my cheeks I use Collection Gorgeous Glow on my cheeks, which gives a beautiful pinky/coral shade with a lovely hint of shimmer. The more you put on the more shimmer there is but I only lightly put mine on just to make it look like I have caught a little bit of sun. My highlighter I have been sticking with Revolution Makeup Vivid Baked Highlighter. I just swirl a powder brush around it and sweep it across the tops of my cheeks, forehead and down my nose for a beautiful dewy, healthy look.

My lipsticks again I tend to swap about my go to colours this year seem to be Maybelline in Magnetic Magenta, Barry M in Truffle Shuffle and Revlon in Fire and Ice. Depending on my mood I will go with the vivid pink, nude or red lip.

What is your go to summer make up look?
