Hi guys! I’m Lily from Pint Sized Beauty. As the weather gets hotter, the amount of products I feature in my makeup routine tends to dwindle. I like to opt for a long lasting, sweat-proof base that highlights and defines the areas I need to. Today’s post is all about my five product Summer face.
Although I’m an advocate for radiance boosting, skin smoothing primers, in the Summer you can never beat the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray*. It’s perfect for when you’re in a rush or when you just want a light spritz to prep your skin. It prolongs the wear on my foundation, stops it from slipping and keep my makeup looking tip-top all day long.
Next up is base product and this is where I like to opt for a lightweight offering that works as both a concealer and foundation. This means I don’t need to think too much about the products I’m applying, I just dab my Beauty Blender into my L’Oreal Nude Magique Foundation and I’m good to go.
Although I love blusher, in the Summer, I find that my cheeks are already quite flushed, so when only reaching for five products I tend to skip it. Bronzer on the other hand is a must for me and I’ve been grabbing the Clarins Bronzing Compact every day. It adds warmth and definition to your complexion in just a few swipes.
When it comes to eye makeup, I struggle to narrow it down to just one product, but as bronzer can easily be used to define the eyes, mascara is a must. I’ve been using a wide variety at the moment, but it’s Maybelline Lash Sensational that has stolen my heart once again. Super long lasting, volumising and lengthening – Everything you need in a Summer mascara.
For brows, I can’t be without the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow as the smudge proof formula stays put, helps to define my face and genuinely makes me look a little more human. You can also use this on your lash line for a soft, smoky eye look.
Lastly is lips and despite having a handful of products floating at the bottom of my bag, it’s the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments that I have been reaching for recently. They come in an array of shades to suit any makeup look and are comfortable enough for everyday wear.
What products are you using this Summer?
