My Summer Make-Up Essentials

I'm back! I don't know how long it's been since I last wrote a blog post, but I know it's been a really long time. Life has been busy, university has taken over amongst other things. If you want to see what I've been up to over the last year, you can go and check out my Instagram or Twitter as I've still been using those platforms. But I do still want to try to blog, and so today I thought I'd talk about the make-up products I love using now the weather has been a lot warmer.

First up is the Collection Primed & Ready Primer. I always use a primer before applying foundation as my skin can be quite oily and if I don't then my make-up is prone to slowly melting off during the day, especially in the sun. This one is also 'powered by Witch' to keep the skin clear. As it is a silicone primer which doesn't feel all that natural, it's nice to know it's still good for my skin. Next is the Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer. This is new to my collection, and I have it in the lightest shade. I use this just under my eyes to give a nice brightening look.

Then I have the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade Istanbul. I only bought this the other week but I already love it! It's a pretty pink colour and goes on really creamy but then dries down to a matte finish. I've tended to lean more towards matte lips recently so I've loved using this. A product that I've loved for a while now is the Rimmel Brow This Way in Medium Brown. I've stopped filling in my brows with pencil as I just found it started to look too over the top, and so now I just use this to give my brows a natural but still full look. I honestly wouldn't go back to how I did them before, this takes all of two minutes and I love the outcome.

Next is a new blusher for me, the Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Lovely Pink. I've used my Nars blush religiously for about a year now but I've started switching it out occasionally for this one and I really like it. It gives a subtle pink glow to the cheeks, perfect for summer. And lastly is another cheeks product which is probably one of my favourite products in the whole of my collection - the Sleek Highlighting Palette in Solstice. I tend to use the cream and pink shades and mix them together and they make for such a gorgeous highlighter look. They have a few different variations of this palette and I'd definitely recommend them.

I hope you enjoyed my first post back in a while. If it goes down well, I have some plans for other posts I could do, such as university related ones. Let me know what you think!
