New Favourite Summery FOTD

Yes, I change my face, just slightly less than I change my knickers, but with all the make-up out there, life is too short for just one face, right?

Anyway, I'm sure you are all aware that summer decided to make an appearance in old blighty last week, and I decided to go for a more dewy look, meaning no powder!!!



Base:
Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation
Maybellne Dream Lumi Touch Concealer
Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer

Eyes:
Stila Nautral Eyes Palette: Bare//Sandstone
Max Factor High Definition Mascara
Sleek Brow Kit

Face:
Chanel Bronze Universal
Benefit Watts Up Highlighter

Lips:
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain




I have fallen back in love with my Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation, and have been mixing two shades to give ze perfect shade for my skin. I've been applying it with my Real Techniques Stippling brush instead of a sponge, and I'm again loving the effect it gives. Although I do still love just the concealer look, I find for a dewy finish, this foundation is the shiz!

I've also started properly using my Chanel Bronze Universal, as I hadn't found the perfect way to use it before without me looking tangoed, but after watching Lauren's video here, I've found a big fat Kabuki places it on my skin perfectly. 



 I've also forgone blush, and just gone straight to highlight for an over all sunkissed, glowly look (at least that is how it looks in my head.)

 I've also kept it simple on the eyes, as I really wanted a 'oh, I just roll out of the bed looking this natural, bronzed and glowy.' I think people buy it, but again that may just be in my head.



Have you changed your make-up for the weather?

P.S I feel the need to point out, I am hygienic and change my underwear a lot, probably more than I need to, just in case you now I think I am unclean haha!

      I love how you have a new face every week. You should do an un-laura face next week. Green eyeshadow i say ;)

    4. Ooh this is a relief :) I'm going to hold on for boots as long as I can because I wouldn't have to pay for it there, keep eyeing it on asos though!
      I agree with the green idea ;) xxxx

  5. This is a really gorgeous summer makeup look! I'm totally buying the idea that you just wake up looking like that!! I've actually just gone a whole week without makeup (don't worry it's just been me and my granny so I haven't shocked too many people!) and I've got to admit it feels pretty good and I'm a little bit reluctant to have to go back to covering my face in slap again! Oh well, maybe I'll employ an even lighter version of my current summer face routine!

    1. AW thank you Alice :)
      Haha, I always try to have at least one no make-up day a week, especially if I have nothing to do! I bet it's doing wonders for your skin. I also think sometimes we get way too heavy with make-up and it's good to have a step back and realise there are some items we just don't really need!!

  6. your skin looks really healthy and natural, maybe i should opt out of powder for a little while and try wearing a little less make up :) i've got a love hate relationship with my rimmel wake me up, but it makes your skin look amazing! i think i apply too much so going to try using a little less and see if it looks better :)

    1. Thanks Kelly :)
      Yes, me too, I find a little dabbbed on then really blended in is the best way, or with a damp sponge :)
      Thank you

      Yes, it is a lot of money and a risk too! I think it's a lovely product to have though!

  11. This make-up looks lovely on you indeed! Yeah I changed my usual make-up. I used to use a compact powder and eyeliner, but I cut out the powder and I'm not using as much eyeliner as I normally do!

    xoxo, Laura
