My Summer Go-To Makeup

YOU GUYS – IT’S FINALLY SUMMER!!!! For me my favourite things about summer are: dresses, colour, fun nail polish, sunshine, swimming, tanning, and of course bronzer & lip sticks! So I thought I’d share my updated summer look. I mostly wear this on the weekends when I want to wear a bit of colour on my lips and cheeks, but still keep it looking fresh!


I like to keep things light and fresh for the hot weather, so I like to use a BB cream – the one I’ve been using and really liking recently is the Maybelline BB Fresh. And is sooo cooling and refreshing when you first apply it.

I them use my trusty Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. This is so good for under the eyes – instantly makes me look awake (who doesn’t like that!). And set everything with my beloved Maybelline Stay Matte Powder.

I have recently been loving colour on my cheeks, and the next two products do it beautifully. I have been using the darker (bronzier?) colours in the Palladio Mosaic Powder compact as my bronzer, and then topping it with NYX HD Blush in Pink The Town. If I can be bothered, I will also use the highlight shade in my NYX Contour & Highlight palette, and the contour shade directly underneath it as well.

Don’t forget the brows, in which I use my NYX Cake Powder in Brunette. I will also sometimes sweep the bronzer across my eyelids, and then to finish the eyes with my FAVE – Rimmel Lash Sensational mascara.

I have been obsessed with the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Instanbul lately, if you haven’t noticed it’s basically been in every blog post recently (oops).


And there we have it. This makeup look literally takes me about 7-10 mins, and is sooo easy for when you’re in a hurry.

Let me know what some of your favourite products are to wear in the summer!

Love, Courtney
