Natural Face Makeup Look | My Current Routine

Natural Face Makeup Look

Summer is here which means time to switch up that base and add a little more sparkle. For me Summer makeup is all about having that flawless looking base without being heavy and adding a pop of colour. In the Summer my oily skin tends to be worse but recently since switching up my skincare routine, i have found it is less oily which makes it easier wearing certain products. 

Having the perfect base is key to any makeup look. I always use mattifying primers and lately i have been loving the Bourjois Happy Light Matte Primer. It is as it says lightweight but feels super moisturising for my skin without making me extra oily. It sets in well and preps my skin perfectly. I then move onto my new favourite Summer foundation and that is the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in the shade Santa Fe. I won a voucher for Nars and picked this foundation as i had heard amazing things. It gives medium to full coverage but still feels very light on my skin. 

Concealers are something i have love/hate relationships with. I often suffer with dark under eye circles but lately they don't seem to be as bad. For the days my under eye circles are behaving and playing ball i love to use the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer. I tend to use this more as a highlighter and slightly under my eyes. It is super creamy and blends like a dream! Powder is a must for me and right now the NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat is right up my street. It is a dupe for the MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation, gives a lovely flawless finish and keeps my makeup lasting all day.

I am quite pale, dark brown hair and blush eyes so i love pink blushes. The Body Shop Baked To Last Blush is perfect. It has a slight shimmer but gives a gorgeous pink tone to my cheeks which i love. Also i am loving The Body Shop Baked Bronzer which i use more as a highlighter and can see myself using this alot this Summer. 


  1. This sounds like it'd make for a lovely makeup look! I love the baked blushes from TBS, I've been wearing it a lot lately x


  2. The body shop blush looks super pretty! Love glowing blushers :)

  3. I need to try that NYX Stay Matte but not Flat powder, I've been lusting after the MAC Studio Fix but this is a bit cheaper! I'm all for anything that gives more coverage!

  5. I want to try the Bourjois primers, they have a luminous one as well, aren't they? I just picked up recently the L'Oreal true Match foundation and I'm amazed how lightweight it feels on the skin but gives a great coverage! x

  7. I've been wanting to try out the Nars sheerglow foundation for so long, but I really don't need another one right now! Struggles lol


  8. I need to try the Naked concealer. I love sheer glow but it’s a little heavy for me for everyday. I love Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturiser.

  9. I love the look of that body shop blusher!

  10. I do agree on the Bourjois Primer, I've just run out and started using the Max Factor one.
