Simple 10 Minute Summer Makeup Look

Hey hey! I don’t know about you, but I cannot stand a lot of makeup on my face during the warmer months; I always feel like I’m melting away. So I’ve condensed my makeup routine into only 10 minutes for those days where I have work or just want to look a bit more alive. Here are my steps to a simple summer makeup look:

  1. Moisturize, consider something with SPF already built in, if not remember to always apply sunscreen and protect your skin.
    1. Product of choice: “Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream” by REN
  2. Prime, I usually apply primer under the eyes and around the noise. Anywhere I want to smooth before correcting.
    1. Product of choice: “Photo Finish Foundation Primer” by Smashbox
  3. Concealer, during the warmer months I despise foundation, it’s just too heavy on the skin. The only time I would wear foundation during the warmer months is if I have an event to attend.
    1. Product of choice: “Aqua Luminous Perfecting Concealer” by Becca
  4. Setting Powder, make sure the concealer does not budge!
    1. Product of choice: “Stay Matte Pressed Powder” by Rimmel
  5. Mascara, adds a bit of a lift to the eye.
    1. Product of choice: “Voluminous Butterfly Sculpt” by L’Oreal
  6. White Eyeliner, in the waterline to make my eyes look a bit bigger.
    1. Product of choice: “Kohl” by Rimmel
  7. Highlighter & Blusher
    1. Product of choice: “Becca x Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette” by Becca
  8. Lips
    1. Product of choice: “Ultra HD Gel Lipcolour” by Revlon in the shade Vineyard


I am absolutely in love with the Becca concealer, its lightweight with a good amount of coverage and so hydrating. It covers my panda eyes and dark spots. This product has become a new fave and possibly even earned a repurchase in the future.

OMG I know it’s been some time since I’ve posted, but it’s all good because I am making my comeback with a hot new fave.

Mac is back! I know I have definitely said that on my blog in the past but I just can’t help it. Maybe this could be a new Mac Cosmetics series? As you may have heard or seen all over Instagram, Mac Cosmetics has launched another collection and this time is a perfect blow up of summer. Seriously, when you look at this collection, the packaging and the products, you just imagine summer time. The “Fruit Juicy” collection includes a bunch of fun lipsticks, lipglasses, eyeshadow palettes, powders, bronzers, lustre drops, a scented mac fix plus, makeup brushes and a makeup bag. I absolutely love the packaging of this collection, its super flowery and just screams warmer weather and fun in the sun. I was most excited for one palette, “Fruit A La La”, and I set my alarm early for the day of the launch and bought it immediately.


From the three palettes in this collection, this one is my fave. The colours are so pretty and vibrant. This palette comes with six shades, a deep brown, hot pink, fiery orange, a glittery copper, light grey, and satin beige. Looking at this palette at first the colours may seem a tad intimidating but they are so much fun to play with. The best thing about this palette is how well the shadows blend and how effortlessly you can create a colourful look. These shadows are long wear and smooth. When applying the glittery copper shade just be careful of a bit of fallout, it’s nothing crazy whatsoever but with glittery shadow you should always be cautious.


You will be able to see the great pigment in the picture where I swatched the shades. I did not find these shadows to be patchy or lacking pigment which was great because the colours are so beautiful.

I can definitely promise that this will be my go-to summer palette because I am so obsessed with pinks and oranges lately, whether is be this palette or a fiery orange lip, I am all for it! Let me know what you guys think of palette and the rest of the collection 🙂
