Summer is Coming

A little bit of sun and I feel like the whole country goes into Summer mode, well I know that I do. I live for the warmer months and in turn, glowy and bronzed makeup. Seen as we’ve had the teeniest bit of sunshine, I thought I’d show you my current go to makeup that’s easing me into the summer months.

I’ve started the fake tanning routine, mainly because I was running out of lighter foundation and I’m too stingy to buy more (I have a wedding to pay for after all). I feel that when your base is a bit more bronzer, you can get away with wearing more bronzed products without it looking overkill and with this look, I used my favourite summer palette – the Jeffree Star Thirsty palette. It’s perfect for creating a summer glowy look.

I hope you enjoy this look and I’d love to know if you’ve started pulling the summer colours out too!
