Natural Summer Makeup FOTD

Friday, 25 July 2014

So recently it's been very humid, and basically a nightmare for makeup. It ends up down my face and all over my clothes pretty much. Rank.com. So I wanted to do a look that was really plain and simple to  suit the weather because nobody wants a full face caked on in the heat.

Face:
I applied some Benefit Porefessional on my cheeks to cover pores, and then went over my whole face with Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse in soft beige. I usually use a liquid foundation but when it's this humid I need something more substantial and mattifying to keep the shine away because I have an oily T-zone. I contoured using Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in medium/dark because its nice and matte again, and then highlighted the tops of my cheeks and under my brow bone with the Sleek FaceForm Contour Pallette, which I used a blush from as well on the apples of my cheeks. All of this together gave a very clean finish and no shine. I set it all with the Rimmel Stay Matte powder in translucent.

Brows:
I really lightly filled in my brows with Makeup Store Micropowder in the shade Deadly. I set it off with the Maybelline Brow Gel in dark brown.

Eyes:
For my eyes I just used the Naked Palette 2 powder Foxy just to brighten the eye up a bit, and then lots of layers of the L'oreal Mega Volume Miss Manga mascara to open my eyes right up. I didn't wear eyeliner to keep it all looking fresh and light.

Lips:
For my lips I coloured them in using a Max Factor Lipliner  in the shade 10 Ruby and then went over the inside with Topshop Lip Crayon in the shade Coy.
