Most Used This Summer :)

Hello Ladies hope everyone is having a beautiful summer and enjoying the sun to the fullest.
As you know summer is my favorite season so I take full advantage of it whenever I can.
When it comes to wearing makeup in the summer I tend to stay away from anything heavy especially during the day, I feel as if my face is melting off and I hate that feeling. It's as if no matter how much blotting powder you put on your skin still gets oily.
I've been doing a similar FOTD for work on a daily basis and
the items I reach for the most are:

I tried the orgasm blush by nars and it wasnt as pigmented
on my skin tone as I had wanted it to be so I went for super orgasm
and it is my go to summer blush with the perfect amount of shimmer.
At first the big chunks threw me off but it doesn't appear so chunky on the face so it's been complimenting me well. 


Fresh brew by mac gives the right amount of life to my lips without looking over done for
daytime. I tend to go back and forth between fresh brew and thalia by nyx. I love how moisturizing both lipsticks are
so you just apply and are on the run :).

MAC lustre drops

My favorite highlighters are the lustre drops by Mac.
I started off with bronze hero and had to get the whole collection of lustre drops.
I love using these as highlights especially in the summer for a dewy glow to the cheeks.
I've tried this on many skin tones and loved the outcome and how it brightens the entire face.

Blunt Eyeshadow by UD
My blunt eyeshadow is going to hit pan very soon as I have been using it daily lol.
It's so versatile as I use this as both a highlight for brow bone and inner corner as well
as an all over colour. When applied with black track fluid line it really gives the eyes a neutral pop, perfect
for day time as well.

Nails: Conney Island

Conney Island by OPI and Seasonal Peach by mac are my most used
nailpolishes for summer. I love the nudey pink look as it brings out such a classy feel.
Nicely manicured nails with about 2-3 coats of these polishes is just simply perfect.

Skin Exfoliant: Ocean Salt

Can anyone stop raving about ocean salt?? Because I definitely can't, this cleanser/exfoliant screams summer
and seaside. What can honestly be better than lime extracted in VODKA and sea salt, this exfoliant gives me such a clean
feel by deep cleansing and unclogging any pores and getting rid of blemishes.
During the summer I use up this ocean salt often after long days to feel refreshed.

Sultry Smokey Eye

Summer is here and I cant describe how beautiful it is, I rather it being 40 degrees than
have snow and ice where I cant feel my toes!! I hope all of you are having an amazing
summer so far, I cant stand being at home when its so nice out..well last weekend I had the chance to do my friends makeup for a reception she was attending.

She wore a beautiful black and silver saree which looked super sexy on her,
she had asked me to do a look which would pull together the outfit so...
I started off by primin her lids with painterly paint pot by MAC,
I primed her face with a palladio face primer so the makeup would stay
put throughout her night of dancing.

Eyes: I started off with blunt e/s by urban decay to brighten her eyes, I also placed this colour
on her brow bone. I then placed Mac silvering e/s on the lid of her eye and applied carbon to the outer corner. I blend carbon inwards to create a smokey effect.

Cheeks: Since shes obsessed with contouring ;) I made sure I contoured with a shimmer free bronzer
and then applied Lorac hot and spicy blush duo on the apples of her cheeks.

Lips: I finished off her lips with Coco Lust by Mac, a pro longwear lipstick.

Lastly I applied Ardell falsies which really brought out her eyes!
Hope you enjoy this look!
