This is my everyday makeup and I feel that it is perfect not just for summer but for any other seasons. You can just swap a few products here and there and voila, still the same look. Swap the foundation for a far less coverage or even a BB cream and this will be even more perfect for summer (I however like full coverage). Swap the blusher for a more neutral tone and you have a look for autumn. Swap the eyeshadow colours and you have a look to suit your mood or the weather.

Face and base.

. "That gal" brightening face primer - Benefit
.  Beautifully matte foundation in shade Calico - No7
. Stay Matte in 006 warm beige - Rimmel
. Blush in shade Guava - The Body Shop
. Browzings in medium - Benefit
. Lemon aid eyelid primer - Benefit

The face primer is a sample that I got off Ebay for only a few pence. I wanted to see if I would like it before I splashed out the cash for the full product, however I'm not fond of it and find it really does nothing for my skin. I think I have finally found my perfect foundation (or close to perfect as you can get) it's the perfect shade for me and I love the coverage it gives. The stay matte powder is a holy grail (just imagine me singing 'aaaah' with a halo placed around it). I love the finish it gives and I already have a backup for when this ends. Thie blush is a new(ish) product for me and at first I thought it was a bit too pink for my skin, however just a quick blend with my brush and it gives me a nice healthy rosy tint. Browzings is the only brow product I have tried and that was maybe a little over a year! (crikey) it's lasted so long and have nearly finished it with a backup waiting in my drawer. The eyelid primer is such a nice base for eyeshadow and goes on so smooth and is blend able and build able.


. Color 24hr tattoo in pink gold - Maybelline 
. Naked 2 in shades foxy, bootycall, tease and blackout - Urban Decay
. Scandaleyes in 005 Nude - Rimmel
. Eyeliner in black - The Body Shop
. Great lash in blackest black - Maybelline

This maybelline color tattoo is my go to nude subtle pink shade, I am in love and have sorry to say ditched the most loved 'on and on bronze' (sorry baby, I may be back to you soon), I just love the subtle colour it gives. The naked 2 pushes all my other palettes to the back of the boat. I use this all the time and especially the shades listed above. I think they all compliment each other perfectly for a lovely day time look. A bit of bootycall on the lid, tease in the crease, foxy in the inner corners and below the eyebrows and blackout as a subtle eyeliner. Perfecto. As well as white eyeliner a nude can also make your eyes pop! just put a tiny bit on the inner corner waterline and a little swipe across, add a bit of the black eyeliner at the outer waterline and onto your top waterline and you have a nice look. This is my favourite mascara (as seen in my August favourites) makes my eyelashes look so nice.


Hello Kitty Lip Balm in strawberry - Claires
Just Bitten kissable balm stain in crush - Revlon.

This lip balm is great, for starters it had a hello kitty face on it, secondly it's Paris themed, thirdly it does it's hydrating job and lastly it smells exactly like the strawberry medicine I was given when I was a small child. (I could and have just sat smelling it for hours). The just bitten is one of my favourite balm stains, it has a nice colour (not too dark and not too light), its hydrating, it's not sticky and has a good lasting time. Now just to get a few more shades and I'll be more then fine.
