First things first, please excuse the shameless selfie and poor quality picture! I am still hunting for a better camera and someone to help me take photos! I thought I would do a 'my face today post' just to show you a makeup look I have been loving creating recently. I am by no means a makeup artist and I am not claiming my makeup is perfect, I just like this bright, summery look.

When I have a brighter colour on my lips, I usually tend to favour a simple eye with neutral tones. Just so that my face doesn't look too overpowering or 'made-up', especially in the day. Today I have used my MUA 'Undress Me Too' eyeshadow palette, I have picked a natural skin colour tone and a medium brown shade for my crease with a highlighting shade in the inner corners of my eyes and underneath my brow bone. I have used my Collection 2000 (now re-branded to 'Collection') liquid eyeliner, to create a very basic teeny-tiny wing.

For foundation I have used my holy-grail 'I will never find anything better',  Maybelline 'Satin-Liquid' foundation. I have contoured lightly, using my Bourjois blush and YSL bronzer, I spent more time than usual blending just so the look appeared more 'natural'.

Finally on my lips I have Sleeks lipstick in Fuchsia, an extremely vibrant purpley-pink. I find that I always have to line my lips when I am using a brighter colour, so just used a Model Co natural shade lip liner. (A great tip if you want to tone down a bright colour is to use a brown shade for lip liner before applying the lipstick!)


Have you got a favourite look for summer?

Hope you're all enjoying the sunny weather!
