I thought I'd do another quick Face of the Day post for you guys, seeing as it was quite popular last time. I have a lot of main stays in my routine, as when I find something that works I'm like a mule when it comes to changing things up. With my dry skin, this is especially important when I find a makeup routine that works.
For my dry skin, L'Oreal Lumi Magique Foundation just works. I don't know what it is, perhaps that it feels quite nourishing when I apply it? A light layer of this teamed with the Maybelline Fit Me Powder (something that hasn't left my vanity dresser since purchase) and Soap & Glory Glow All Out for a little radiance. A quick dab of Collection 2000 Concealer in all the troublesome places and buff it in with a Real Techniques Buffing Brush for real staying power.
This is the point where I pop on a little Caudalie Lip Conditioner to soften my lips ready for when I put my lip products on. I picked it up at my local Lloyds chemist only a month ago and it's nearly all gone!
A quick contour with my go to bronzer MAC Pro Longwear Bronzing Powder in Sun Dipped does wonders for my non existent cheekbones, but not so good for my heart when I know I hit pan a while back and have not found a replacement. Using a Real Techniques Blush Brush I apply NARS Orgasm to add a pinch of colour.
I tend to keep eyes bare when I wear a bold lip, so a few coats of Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express Mascara is all I need to really draw focus where it's needed. Shape and fill sparse brows with the Urban Decay Brow Box in Brown Sugar, moving onto the darker of the colours for a denser, rich colour.
To finish, a solid pop of colour for the lips. I love Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Heftiest Hibiscus, it's such a wearable everyday colour. A red for those that don't think they can pull off red!
What is your favourite lip colour for Summer?
