My glowy summer makeup

When it comes to my makeup, I am not a fan of heavy full coverage foundations, even more so in the warmer months I like to go for a light coverage, my skin but better finish with a bit of a glow to it. So if that is your bag, stick around because I am gonna share the makeup products I have been choosing recently.

My glowy summer makeup

I recently made an asos order of makeup something I hadn't done before I purchased a mascara, which I have already reviewed and a cc cream, powder and setting spray which I am going to talk about in this post.

Like I said when it comes to base makeup in summer, I like lightweight products, luckily due to a new skincare regime, which I will talk about another time, my skin is looking pretty damn good. I start with a little concealer on any redness, I like the makeup revolution conceal and define, and some barry m colour correction under my eyes and blend. Then that's when I go in with 3ina cc cream, I have shade 103 for reference. I pop a small amount I'm talking probably less than pea size on a oval brush, dot over my face and blend, you really do not need much product at all, to achieve a glowy skin like finish. 

As this product is so glowy, which I like, I don't like to add to many powder products on top, so use a cream blush, and liquid highlighter. I do add a little powder bronzer at this stage to help give my face definition.

Of course I fill in my brows and then normally reach for either my naked heat palette or too faced sweet peach both perfect eye palettes for a summer makeup look, whack on the aforementioned mascara, Pop on some lippie, either a nude or an orange/red. Then give my chin, nose and forehead a quick dusting of Nip & fab banana setting powder, This is the softest powder ever and works a dream at setting my makeup, without making me to matte, meaning I'm glowy rather than shiney! spritz with Mac prep and prime and that's it, simples!!
