Summer Day Face

So the Summer weather has been a bit hit and miss this year for London… but my current daily make-up favourites have stayed pretty consistent! So here’s a little face of the day for what my favourites have been for a summer face!


Trying to keep it simple with the products, I’ve been using:
Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Relax Complex*: I think this makes a fantastic smoothing/perfecting base before foundation.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation: Depending how much coverage I want, sometimes I just apply almost like concealer in the areas I need it, other times I go for the all-over face look.
Soap and Glory Arch De Triumph: To fill in brows and give a bit of  definition. I add a bit of the lighter highlighter to the brow bone area too. Sometimes I’ll pop a bit of brow gel on top too, usually the MAC one.
YSL Touche Eclat*: Just a touch under the eyes to brighten without needing a heavy concealer
Lancome Hypnose Star Mascara*: Loving this, for the review check here
YSL Terre Saharienne Collector Edition No2 ‘Healthy Glow’*: Another absolute love, this could very well be my product of the Summer – for swatches/review click here
Laura Mercier Pink Tourmaline Mosaic*: For a bit of a glow I ad a really light dusting of this, I try and avoid the white one for  daytime as it’s a little too glowy for natural day light, but the pinky/brown shades are gorgeous. Reminded me to use highlighters more as I’ve been in a habit of avoiding for daytime! 
Also, not pictured but in the product photo, but I’m wearing YSL Rouge Volupte in shade 107* – my lipsticks of choice recently have alternated between this and Topshop make-up ‘Pillow Talk’ (post coming soon!) – anything easy to apply and forget about basically! I currently have my eye on the peachy shade, Fauborg Peach and tempted to get involved with the cobuy that’s currently live and get it for £17.50…but on a lip product spending ban!
Still loving wearing my hair in beachy waves too!

    Think you look absolutely gorgeous.

    Your summer looks makes you look really sunny and bright (even thought the London weather has been a bit mismatch at best).

    Do you also use your YSL touché éclat on your nose and on dark ares of you face to get this look or did you only use it under your eyes

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to
    be running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post
    to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon.
    Many thanks
