My Summertime Look And A Few Bargain Finds

summer makeup


Did Summer start? Has it been and gone? Did I sleep through till winter? 

Im trying not to feel too bogged down about the fact that we have quite simply, not had very much of a summer. Perhaps it's just being fashionable late? Either way, I'm holding off on the rustic autumnal tones, and still rooting for the sexy shimmery bronze shades that make you think of sun, sea and sex on the beach (the drink!).

Whilst on the subject of sex on the beach, please ignore my slightly come to bed eyes in the pictures below! 
I was obviously trying to lure the Sun back into our lives...

Seduction of the sun aside. I've been playing around with some new makeup bits, that will be perfect for if the sun does ever decide to come out to play again.


A girl can live in hope.

Primark Primer Water - 

The find of the Summer! For £2 (TWO POUNDS!!) this actually might be the best bit of makeup kit I own. Ive been drenching my face with this, and then really buffing foundation into the skin, to give it that real 'natural but done' look. 
Not only does my skin look flawless, but it gives such a healthy sheen it. My skin tends to hold foundation fairly well, but with this underneath, my skin looks like my makeup has just been freshly applied. 
Stocking up!

Primark Glow Highlighter Stick -

Primani are really pulling it out the bag in the beauty department right now.
This gorgeous little stick won't give you that full on mega watt highlight, but instead gives a beautiful subtle glossy sheen to the skin, which I'm loving right now. 
If you want something a little bit more natural looking, then this is your girl. 

*Cougar 6 Shade Of Nudes -

This is a perfect little compact of super blendable eyeshadows. All the shades have that lovely warm undertone, making all colour eyes pop. You get 6 shadows in this compact, making it great to travel with. All the shades are shimmer, making follo proof to blend.

Makeup revolution rose quartz light gradient highlight

Makeup Revolution Rose Quartz Light -

Now I dont wanna start any rumors here, but this looks like a dupe of a certain Kevyn Aucoin Neo Bronzer.... I'll let you investigate for yourselves, but either way this is the perfect 'Ive been out in the sun, now I'm looking a bit healthy' shade.

  1. I've never heard of primer water before but it sounds like I need to give the Primark one a go!
