My Youtube channel has had a little touch of pink blossom over there with my new makeup video. In a chatty, get ready with me style, I talk you through how I created this really simple, everyday pink makeup look, while this post will serve as a resource to enable you to discover more about the awesome brands that I’ve been using all heatwave long!
This summer, I’ve been loving switching out my foundation for theOrigins VitaZing tinted moisturiser with SPF 15, which saves me on another step in my routine by giving me the sun protection I need along with evening out my skin tone and providing a really light, natural base.
To conceal and brighten under my eyes, on my nose and across my cupids bow, I use the Charlotte Tilbury The Retoucher in Shade 1 Fair quite technically bopped in using a Beauty Blender (preferably damp but ya know, sometimes cba).
I tackle spots and blemishes with the Chanel Longwear Concealer in Shade 20 but that’s few and far between because d’ya know what? Unless they’re a really angry monster of a blemish, I’m alright just leaving them be. This is my skin and I love to see it looking natural rather than being completely covered with a heavy, full coverage base… now you wouldn’t have heard me say that in the Double Wear days would you?
To set my base in place, this summer I have turned to the Chanel Ultrawear Flawless Compact Foundation, which I only truly began to appreciate once I started wearing it over the top of the VitaZing. It leaves my skin looking matte and flawless without looking cakey and my Anastasia Beverly Hills Powder Contour Kit blends effortlessly over the top, darkening the contours of my face and bringing the higher points forward before finishing up with a pop of colour from the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Tipsy on my cheeks.
The glow up doesn’t stop there though as I go in with the Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighter in Warm Glow that I also work across my lids with the contour kit in tow for some naturally sculpted light and glow.
For my brows, the Benefit Gimmie Brow in Shade 3 does the trick at lightly defining my brows and holding them in place while the Benefit They’re Real Mascara in Black gives me some serious definition on my lashes while I’m missing my Essential Beauty Lash Extensions (my full set appointment cannot come quick enough!!).
To absorb any excess oil and to set the whole look in place, I turn to the Urban Decay dupe duo from Rimmel, the Insta Fix & Matte Pressed Powder and the Rimmel Insta Fix & Go Spray before adding the pièce de résistance, theBenefit They’re Real Double The Lip in Pink Thrills that I bought as part of a travel minis set back in May. I love how the darker and lighter shades within this lipstick act as a liner and lipstick in one, giving me a fuller looking pout with minimal effort!
Finishing up my look with my hair couldn’t have been easier. The curls I’d put in the day before lasted pretty well so it was just a case of letting down my hair, brushing through with the Denman Tangle Tamer Ultra which glides through the hair effortlessly (great for if you have kids who whinge when having their hair brushed too!) and then applying a small amount of the SHOW Beauty Hair Oil through the mid lengths and ends.
The result? Effortless, natural and pretty perfect for summer!
