Summer Evening Make-Up Look

Hello There! So some of you (if anyone actually reads this!) may have noticed I've been a bit quiet on the blog front recently! I've been away for the week on holiday to Gran Canaria so gave the blogging world a little break, albeit I have posted regularly on Instagram. If you fancy having a nosey you can fine me here.

Whilst I was away we ate in the restaurant and watched the evening entertainment most nights, and even popped out for a wander other nights. I have mastered my perfect holiday evening make-up look and only really switched up my lipstick when I wanted to look a bit different.

I decided I should share with you my Summer Evening Make-Up look here on the blog as an instagram picture just isn't enough right?!

Hope I didn't scare you there with this extreme close up! But I wanted to capture the details as well as show how the make-up looks from an acceptable arms length!

For The Face

For my face I used Estee Lauder Double Wear very sparingly, this foundation is my holy grail make-up product and I can't go anywhere without it. It can be a bit heavy hence why I used it very sparingly, just enough to give a thin covering. I then used Collection's Illuminating Touch concealer in shade 1 'Naked'. I usually use the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, however, for a holiday look I decided to opt for something more dewy and glowing. This concealer really brightens up the face and gives off the perfect summer glow. I used Collection Translucent Powder to dab along my T-Zone and keep the shine at bay. I then went in with a Make-Up Revolution offering of their; bronzer, a peach toned blush from their 'Sugar & Spice Pallette, then to top it off I added a subtle sheen to my cheekbones using their Vivid Baked Highlighter in the shade 'Peach Lights'. For my face I wanted a natural, sun kissed glow.

For The Eyes

For my eye make-up I have used Urban Decay's Naked 2 Palette; taking the shade 'Bootycall' which is a peachy champagne colour all over the lid, then popping a bit of 'Half Baked' down the centre of the lid, which is a stunning gold shade and finishing with 'Tease' in the crease, which is a mid tone matte brown. This creates a lovely warm golden smokey effect and really makes blue eyes pop. For my winged liner I opted for Primark's felt pen and finished off with Maybelline's 'The Falsies' Mascara. I used a couple of coats to create the desired effect.

For The Lips

For this night I used MAC 'Girl About Town', but I also took 'Chatterbox' and 'Morange' Too.

Et Voila! My perfect Summer Evening Make-Up Look is complete! A dewy bronze base with a golden smoky eye and a fuchsia lip.

What's your go to summer make-up products?
