gimmie glow

Who doesn't want that effortless summer glow, the 'no-make up' look that takes no time, but still defines your features perfectly? I've gathered some products that I've been reaching for a lot lately and work for me the best this time of the year. The Bourjois department have done an amazing job on creating lightweight, but good coverage foundations and the one I've been loving is the Happy Light, which contains translucent pigments for a glowing base.

For cheeks, the e.l.f. Candid Coral blush is more than perfect for a flush of colour, but if you're a fan of contouring, the darkest shade from the Makeup Revolution Cover & Conceal palette is a must, along with my beloved MAC No 129, to get chiseled cheekbones. I couldn't choose anything else than the Maybelline Color Tattoo in On and On Bronze, a creamy shadow for all over the lid, and under the eye if you fancy, like I do! Quick and easy!

For the inner corner and as a highlighter, one is the choice, MAC Soft and Gentle and to get voluminous lashes, the Oriflame Giordani Gold mascara will do the trick. It's not an all time favourite, but its wet formula follows the summer glow theme. Lastly, for the lips, I picked three because one lipstick is never enough! The Revlon Colorburst Lip Gloss in Bellini is a natural glossy shade, the Mac Creme D' Nude is a peachy nude and the Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Color in Heather Buff will work as a bold, but natural lip colour.
