High End Makeup - Summer Look

I have been posting quite a few posts about fashion, but hardly any about beauty and makeup!

Today's post is going to be about Spring/Summer Makeup I would personally pick up to show off some tanned skin. I tend to use totally different makeup when it comes to summer time, simply because, skin colour changes, trend colours are totally different and I simply love a sunkissed look!! well who doesn't?

My favourite high-end makeup choices for the coming season are... 

High End Summer makeup

Estée Lauder Eyeshadow Palette 
Estée Lauder Blush
YSL Lipstick
YSL Mascara
Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner 

The Estee Lauder Metallic Eyeshadow palette is simply beautiful; apart from the amazing packaging, it has the ideal shades to create a fresh Summer look. The shades it contains can be easily used to create both day and evening looks. And finally, the best thing about these metallic shades is that they can be used dry or wet to intensify the looks one would want to obtain.

To finish off the eyes, I would use the amazing Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Forest, which is a dark brown colour - which would not look too harsh on the eyes. Apart from this gel eyeliner being long -lasting and waterproof; it has one of the best pigmentation and also the best reviews around! 

As for the lashes - the YSL Singulier Nuit Blanche in No1 1 Vibrant Black, which has amazing pigmentation, is waterproof, promises to give thick and long lashes and has jojoba oil as one of the ingredients to protect and nourish the lashes! And lets face it - we need all the protection we can get in the Summer months!

As for the blush....the Estee Lauder Blush in Sensuous Rose - amazing pigment to keep that natural glow. And to finish off a sheer YSL Candy Volupte No 2, to keep the look light and fresh.

What do you think of these choices?

Are you looking forward to the Summer months?

  3. The only thing I change for the summer make-up routine is my lipstick. I really should buy a new blush, and some eyeshadow colours!

  4. That Estee Lauder palette looks perfect. And I bet the YSL mascara is amazing. *checks price*
