❤️ Subtle Summery Look ❤️


Summery Makeup Look

Hello everyone! 
Today I want to share with you a subtle summery makeup look that's simple, wearable and bearable in the recent heatwave England has been having for the last few days!


For the face I use very little products as during the hot weather nothing is better than keeping as much of your face makeup free as you can.

Because of this I just apply the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer in the shade Ivory to areas such as; under the eyes, Ontop of the nose, centre of the chin and in between the brows. 

* no foundation*

I then just brush the four pink shades as shown above from the Revolution Blush palette 'Golden Sugar' along my cheeks which adds a nice subtle highlight.
To give my cheeks a subtle pinky glow I swipe a few strokes of colour from the Rose Gold Sleek blusher.


Before I add any colour to the eyes I prime them with my urban decay primer potion.

Eye shadow

1. I begin with the shade 'Booty Call' all over the lid and brow bone from the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette as a shimmery base.
2. I then apply 'Moonlight' from the Tanya Burr Galaxy Eye palette all over the lid.
3. Moving onto the Urban Decay 'Smoked' palette I apply the shade 'Rockstar' into the crease keeping this very subtle.

4. Seeing as I can't go anywhere without a cat flick I glide the Rimmel London Exaggerate Liquid Eye Liner along my upper lid, keeping it close to the waterline as possible and drawing a long flick at the end. I didn't aim to make the line too thick as I was trying to keep everything subtle.
5. I also draw a line on my bottom waterline with the Urban Decay glide on eye pencil in the colour 'Stag'. However, I did not draw this all the way into the inner corner as I like to keep a slight gap so my eyes don't appear too closed up.


I use two mascaras
1. The first one I use to separate the lashes is my Maybelline Lash Sensational on the top and bottom layer of lashes.
2. I then volumize and add length to the lashes with the L'Oreal Miss Manga Mega Volume mascara 'Black Angel'.


1. For the brows I firstly swipe my beloved shade 'mushroom' from the Urban Decay 'Smoked' palette.
2. I then draw a subtle line along the bottom using the Maybelline Brow Satin pencil to sharpen them up.
3. Seeing as my brows now look a bit too dark round the edges and soft in the middle I darken them up with the shade Backdoor also from the 'Smoked' palette.
4. To finish them up and hold them in place all day I apply a few brushes of the Benefit brow gel.


Onto the big finale! You could go two ways about it here in terms of what you would wear this look for. Either subtle or bold depending on the occasion. 
Here are the two products I would opt for:

Both of these lip products are matte free as I wouldn't personally opt for a matte lip product in the hot weather as it makes my lips feel sticky. I prefer a moisturizing product that is easy to apply and doesn't feel too heavy.

These two lip options give you a choice as to whether you're feeling daring enough to add a pop of colour to your lips or if you would prefer to keep the look subtle all round with a softer lip shade.

Due to the possibility of the weather melting my makeup off my face I hold it in place with The Body Shop Vitamin E Hydrating Face Mist.
(It's also really cooling on the face especially when the weather is hot!)

The Finished Look!

Thankyou for reading this post on how to create a subtle summery makeup look which is bearable, wearable and possibly colour popping if you choose a bold lip!
