What's On My Face #2

Throughout the summer I usually don't wear a lot of make up because I find it too much of a faff to have half of it sweated off later in the day. And even when I do want to fancy my face up a little bit I tend to stick to a simple look with minimal effort. It's just so much easier to throw this on my face and go.

Primer // Benefit Porefessional
I'm sure you've heard so much about this primer so I'll keep it short and sweet. This primer is so good at helping towards sweat-proofing my make up and keeps it solidly in place all day. This is just a little sample size but I will definitely be purchasing the full size.

Foundation // Rimmel Wake Me Up (Ivory)
I only bought this fairly recently but I love this foundation! It's great for summer as it gives a lovely healthy looking finish and the SPF 18 is also amazing.

Concealer // Seventeen Phwoaar Paint (Fair)
I won't bore you with the details for this one because I've already done a blog post about it here. But long story short, it does the job quite well.

Bronzer // Soap & Glory Solar Powder
This bronzer is amazing for paler skin, it doesn't look muddy on me at all. Because of this I can sweep this all over my face to give it a nice summer bronzed goddess glow (or so I like to think). Annoyingly though, I got this as part of a set for Christmas so it doesn't have it's own portable packaging making it not very handbag friendly. But other than that, it's my favourite bronzer at the moment.

Mascara // Maybelline Big Eyes Volum' Express Waterproof (Black)
I love a good waterproof mascara throughout the summer. Because I live so close to the sea, I usually go for a quick dip after work and with waterproof mascara I'm covered for any possible panda eye situations. I've actually had this mascara for a while now and didn't really like it when I first got it. I think it's one of those mascaras that are a lot better when they've dried out a bit.

Eyeshadow // Maybelline Colour Tattoo (Eternal Gold)
I like to think that this cream eyeshadow adds to my 'bronzed goddess' look. I love using these eyeshadows, they're so easy to apply - you literally just need a quick sweep over the eyelid - and they last all day. The colours are amazing and pigmented enough to be worn on their own, or you can use them as a base to create another look. I honestly can't rave enough about these!

Eyeliner // Soap & Glory Smoulder Kohl (Cocoa Bean)
The black version of this eyeliner was featured in my last What's On My Face post and what can I say? I just love them. They're easily smudge-able but can also keep a nice clean line.

Lips // Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick (Nudist)
This is just one of those lip products that looks so much nicer when you have a tan. Throughout the winter this colour just didn't look right but now I am loving it! It's pretty much been my go-to lip product recently. Wow, I've only just realised that is quite a few Soap & Glory products.

That's everything I've been putting on my face recently. What have you been loving?

  1. Beautiful post! I nominated you for the Liebster Award xx

  2. Minimal make up is my go to in the summer months too, especially with the heat we've been having here in the Uk of late.

    Some great products, as well as some new to me, ones here!
