I’m back from my holidays and thought I’d show you how I do my summer basemakeup! If you read my Summer Makeup Update post (here) then you’ll know that I prefer a lighter base, and this is the steps I do to give me the perfect summertime base!
After moisturising and priming with a pore minimising primer I use Soleil Tan De Chanel with a dense contour brush to bronze my skin, I then use the BareMinerals Original Mineral Foundation in the shade Light with a really large fluffy brush to blend the foundation all over my skin. This foundation has SPF 15 so it’s great for the summer!
To add some definition to my face I use Too Faced Cocoa Contour Palette, I use Medium Cocoa with a dab of Dark Cocoa to contour and then I go over that (lightly) with more of Medium Cocoa to blend and bronze my skin. I like to use Light Cocoa under my contour to lighten the area and in a triangle shape to lighten that area as well. After that I use a duo fibre brush to remove any excess powder and blend further.
To highlight I use MAC Mineralise Skinfinish Soft and Gentle on a large fan brush on the tops of my cheekbones and then I go in with a small highlighting brush and thebalm Mary-Lou Manizer to highlight the tip of my nose, along the tops of my cheekbones again and my cupids bow! To add a hit of colour and blend my contour and highlight together I use Benefits Dandelion blush.
I really like the finish this this gives!
I really love how this base looks and I do find it to be quite long wearing. It is the perfect base for multiple eye looks!
What is you’re go to foundation for the summer?
Hope to see you around,
