My Makeup: Subtle & Summery

Base: Rimmel Fix and Perfect Pro Primer / YSL Touche Eclat Foundation / Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer / Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer / Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzer / Maybelline 'Apricot' Dream Touch Blush / Benefit Sunbeam / BareMinerals Brow Powder / Creme brulee Vaseline
Eyes & Lips: Benefit 'Birthday Suit' Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow / Urban Decay 'Chopper' and 'Tease'  Powder Eyeshadow from the Naked2 Palette / Maybelline Gel Liner / Next Volumising Mascara / MAC 'Shy Girl' Lipstick / No.7 'Coral Reef' BB for Lips / Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist

This is pretty much my go to summer face at the moment- glowy skin, a subtle shimmer on the eyes, peachy lips and cheeks and we're done (yes that's right, no thick liquid liner in sight. Shock horror!). I've found that since getting back from my holiday to Spain I've needed to use my neglected YSL Touche Eclat foundation to get my perfect tanned skin tone colour match and because it's just so beautifully lightweight and glowy, perfect if you still want a bit of coverage in this heat. As much as I love the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation and think it's a great drugstore dupe, the formula is a lot thicker and the shades are a bit too pink toned for this time of year so I'm putting it at the back of the makeup box until normal British weather- aka rain, rain, cloud, more rain- resumes. As I was typing out the list of products above I realised that there are soooo many which have constantly appeared in  my make up posts since the very beginning of my blog and don't show any signs of going anywhere soon (hello holy grail status)- the Collection concealer, Bourjous bronzer, BareMinerals brow powder, Maybelline Lumi Touch concealer and gel liner are just a few of them. I'd really recommend trying all of these out at once as well as the few new sunny additions such as Benefit Sunbeam highlighter and my new favourite peachy lip combo, MAC 'shy girl' and No'7 BB for lips in 'coral reef'. I'm not usually much of a gloss girl but I've been reaching for this new 'BB for lips' release nearly everyday since I bought it. Full raving review to follow!

Sorry for being a bit absent over the weekend, I had planned to do some blogging but I got a bit ill and decided to just chill out in the sun with my boyf and girlies and also took a trip to see Monsters University at the cinema (I also had a happy meal for dinner afterwards just so I could get a minion toy, big kid much) I was back at my internship today but tomorrow I'm off to Sheffield for my graduation! My Nan treated me to a new dress and heels for the big occasion so there will definitely be an outfit post going up later this week...

What's your go to summer make up?
