New Makeup Favourites for Summer

This is simple one, the makeup I've been slapping on my face since the sun has made its appearance. I've actually been using most of these for a few months now, but they have totally become staples in my makeup bag.

I usually wear a light base anyway, but in summer I find it essential and the new one I've been giving a go is the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream. It's a strange texture, but once blended in leaves my skin looking so natural. I've opted for a shade darker than I would normally go for seeing as I've been fake tanning, and it's such a gorgeous base. I can see myself purchasing my normal pale shade when the tan fades away!

For powder it's got to be the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light - it sets my base and gets rid of shine yet still makes my skin glow. I've always gone for cheap and cheerful powders in the past, but I'm so glad I chose to splurge on this as I truly love the way it makes my skin look. Another Hourglass purchase is the Ambient Lighting Blush in Mood Exposure. This is one of those shades that looks a bit dull in the pan, but on the cheeks it is such a natural colour and a perfect non-offensive, goes with anything kind of shade.

As I wrote in a recent post, I've been going through a bit of a lipstick rut recently, in that most of my collection isn't calling to me anymore. A recent purchase, however, is Soap & Glory's Sexy Mother Pucker Lipstick in Rosy Chic. It's a matte rosy pink shade that I find flattering and that perks my face up, especially with some faux glow going on. I like that it's one of those bright-but-not-bright shades that can be worn any time.

And lastly, comes Urban Decay's All Nighter Setting Spray. This is the first setting spray I've ever used and I'm already converted - it is a must to set the makeup and to make it all mesh together. I find that my makeup just looks so much better once this has been applied, and the longevity is great. It'll be put to the test when I'm in America, though!
