Step into Summer! Go to Summer products

, , Leave a comment

This post has been a long time coming, it was originally a spring post! My wardrobe has brightened as have my go-to products. I don’t want to be burdened down with heavy make-up but in this climate it can be tough to walk outside and not have the rain wash it all right off again! Let’s step into summer…

 
Goodies!



I was kindly gifted these Physicians Formula goodies a while back after a conversation with Caroline in The Publicity Loft because I haven’t been able to get my hands on them. I’ve just recently found out Physician’s Formula are now available on my fave Irish online business – dolledup.ie. The eyeliners are my absolute fave, they are so easy to apply, not too creamy but smooth and they stay put all day. For night time looks I love lining my eye with the black first and going over with the Wet’N’Wild Mega Eyes Defining Marker to make sure nothing will budge.







 

I absolutely adore this palette and can’t wait to get my hands on more of these as they’re so compact and neat for your handbag or for travelling. You can mix the colours as they are extremely pigmented and a little bit goes a long way although you can build to a more dramatic look as well as creating any colour smoky eye you desire. You can even use the matte dark shade for eyebrows if you are dark like me and forget your brow products.

I always have a tub of this on hand for those days when you just want a lift and a bit of shimmer, you can apply it over or under your makeup – I choose under and usually just use it as a highlighter but you can use it all over. It works well with my combination skin also and feels like you’re only applying water to your face so it’s allowing your skin to breath.
I’m quite new to the world of primers but once Debbie of Decadent Beauty introduced me to this last November I won’t use anything else. It literally feels like you’re wearing nothing and makes even the heaviest duty makeup feel lightweight and keeps it in place. It also leaves your skin feeling so soft. I’m currently only on my second tube because you only use about a bean sized amount each time so it goes a really long way!
Everyone has been raving about this lately so I had to check it out. I won’t wear any other concealer any more this is just so good, and so easy to apply. There’s no mucking about or waiting for it to dry even though it seems quite wet and I’ve been getting complements on my skin since I started using it.
So there you go. Do you switch up your makeup routine for summer? Or the colours you use/wear? Have you any go-to products to brighten up your skin? Would love to know in the comments below.
Thank you for reading!
