Today is part 2 in the ‘My Friends Summer Saviours!’ series. This post focuses on Makeup products that my friends love and use daily to keep their skin at bay in the summer weather. Again, we have a mix of low and high-priced products. So, there will be something for everyone in today’s recommendations. Hope you enjoy and get inspiration from their suggestions.
NYX Professional Makeup Studio Perfect Primer
£10.00 from www.boot.com*
“This primer helps my makeup stay put all day. Very similar to the Smashbox Photo finish primer.”
Available in 3 shades, clear, green and lavender. This is a silky primer that is absorbed into the skin to create a perfect base for makeup.
Foundations & Concealers:
No7 City Light Tinted Moisturiser
£13.00 from www.boots.com*
“Gives me a little colour whilst keep my skin hydrated so I don’t go all dried up and shrivelled.”
I had several of my friends recommend this tinted moisturiser. It is a sheer cover tinted moisturiser that hydrates the skin whilst protecting it for environmental stresses.
Avon Nutraeffects Radiance Tinted Moisturiser SPF 20
£6.00 from www.avon.uk.com
Suitable for all skin tones, this tinted moisturiser increases luminosity, evens out skin tones and adds a radiant glow to the skin.
Lancôme Teint Visionnaire Foundation
£28.00 from www.lookfantastic.com
“I really like this at the moment, it also has concealer built into lid.”
A two-in-one concealer and foundation that delivers SPF 20 to protect skin from environmental aggressors. It conceals imperfections, but reduces the appearance of blemishes, fine lines and wrinkles gradually, whilst combating uneven skin tone.

Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illumination in Charming Pink
