My Quick Light Summer Makeup Routine

My Quick Light Summer Makeup Routine

In this hot summer weather, I get quite lazy with my makeup routine. I don’t actually wear make up every day and when I do I tend to want to just apply it quick and move on. However, I still want my makeup to look good and stay in place all day. This is the makeup routine I have been reaching towards over the past few weeks so thought I would share it with you as I know many of my friends and followers are always looking for quick and easy products to use on a daily basis.

Mac Prep and Prime Skin Base Visage – a creamy primer to add a glowing base under my powder.

Mac Studio Fix Plus Powder – really lightweight and quick to use. I just buff it onto my skin with a big fluffy brush. It keeps my face matt all day and stays in place.

Rimmel Natural Bronzing Powder – this is a nice bronzer to add a subtle sun-kissed glow to my skin. I wear shade Sun Bronze 22.

Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow Palette (Blusher & highlighter) – this has a coral blusher that I love and is perfect for summer. The highlighter is very subtle and doesn’t shimmer too much. It simply adds a nice highlight ideal for every day. You can read my full review of this palette here.

Eyeshadow –  I have used this palette literally everyday since I bought it last year. It is just so versatile for any look. The colours are gorgeous and the pigmentation is fantastic. On a daily basis I just apply the colour Georgia all over my lid and blend it out. It is really quick to apply and adds subtle shade to the eye. You can see my full review of the palette here.

Anastasia Brow Wiz – This is such a quick and easy brow product. It leaves my brows looking natural.

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray – I apply this setting spray as it takes away the powdery look that can be left behind with a powder foundation. It also keeps my makeup in place all day. You can read my full review of this spray here.

YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils – I apply this last after my setting spray. I add a quick coat of this black mascara to open up my eyes. You can read my full review of this mascara here.
