The sunshine and warm weather we’ve been having this week has made me want to ditch my usual makeup routine and go for something a bit brighter and lighter. I want to try and avoid using foundation as much as possible this summer, so a good concealer and a BB cream/tinted moisturiser will be essential. My favourite foundation is by Estee Lauder (Double Wear Light) so I’m hoping their DayWear BB cream will be up to standard. I haven’t read many reviews of it on blogs though, so if you’ve done a review/read one recently please point me in the right direction!
As you can probably tell, I love all things coral and peach in the summer. I’ve never tried any of the NARS blushes but they’re extremely popular with bloggers so I think I must be missing out! This shade looks so pretty and summery. I hardly ever bother painting my finger nails because I’m lazy and have horrible stubby wee nails, but I do always like to keep my toes looking nice in the summer so a nice bright nail polish, like Chanel’s Distraction, is high on my wishlist at the moment too.
When the sun comes out, it makes me want to douse myself in highlighters for some reason! At the moment I’m loving Benefit Girl Meets Pearl and the Lily Lolo Mineral Shimmer I mentioned in my Lily Lolo review. My sample pot of Stardust has almost run out, so I will definitely be purchasing the full sized version soon. I’ve been wanting the Eye Bright pencil for ages now but have never got round to ordering it. I think it would be perfect for summer though as I can never be bothered to do proper eye makeup when it’s hot, so something to make my eyes look big, bright and wide awake would be great.
Have you tried any of these products? What’s on your summer makeup wishlist?
