Summer Face

Rediscovering the beauty that is Shiseido Sun Protection Liquid Foundation has led me to build my go-to summer make-up around it.

Firstly, this foundation is dreamy. Not only is it waterproof with a high SPF but, it has the most silky, incredible finish and I consistently get compliments on my skin when I am wearing it. Highly, highly recommend as a sunny weather base.

As with every summer, I have returned my focus to Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel. This is the ultimate product to leave skin looking sunkissed and radiant. This year I have been enjoying using it with the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush for a more precise application around the cheekbones. The redder undertones of this bronzer give a really natural just-come-in-from-the-sun effect, even on paler skintones.

Blush and highlighter are both new-to-me products from BECCA. The Beach Tint* in Raspberry is a new shade for SS15 and it's gorgeous. I think we all feel obliged to turn to bright pinks and peaches when summertime hits but, this raspberry lip and cheek stain is absolutely killing it for me. It wears really well, especially on the cheeks when buffed in with the Real Techniques Stippling Brush, and isn't at all as drying as some other stains (Benetint I'm looking at you).

Dee wrote about the BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector* a couple of weeks ago and I echo all her sentiments. This is a beautiful product and nothing else I have competes. Yes, the pump dispenses way too much product so, I have taken to opening the tube and taking a little from the inside. A small duo-fibre brush is the best for a flawless finish.
