The sun is finally making an appearance and so is the glowy makeup looks. I have put together a Summer Lust List of amazing beauty, makeup and goodies from Boots to enjoy this summer. In this post, I show you what products I am using to create a glowy makeup look, as well as my fave summer perfume. Keep reading to see more.
Summer Lust List
I picked some items that are great Summer makeup choices to create a full look. The pieces are a great selection of natural nude shades and perfect products for summer. Below I show them in closer detail and will talk about the finished look later in the post. The e.l.f eyeshadow palette is probably one of my favourites as it’s a great everyday eyeshadow palette but also great for traveling and holidays. With gorgeous shimmery and glitter shades that help create the ultimate glowy look. The light shadows can also double up as a highlighter for the inner corner of the eye and cheekbones.
I also picked up this Barry M ‘In The Buff’ palette which is even more muted than the E.L.F palette. This is great for every day, for eye looks that are simple and easy to do. I would use this on holiday to give my eyes more natural depth when it’s hot, for a ‘no make up’ make up look.
For the rest of the makeup look, I also got a selection of items to go with the eyeshadow palettes. No7 waterproof mascara is amazing in muggy heats and for a holiday so you can go in the pool no problem. The Max Factor lipstick is a beautiful sheen finish and is a gorgeous subtle rosy pink colour. I love how it looks on my lips and is a great choice for summer.
Lastly, I had to include my fragrance of choice for the summer and that just has to be Flowerbomb Bloom by Viktor & Rolf! It’s a gorgeous floral scent which is very feminine and pretty. This is a great fragrance for anyone who loves something subtle and sweet.
Glowy Makeup Look
For the makeup look, I started by creating depth with darker browns on the outer corner. Then I used the highlight shade in the E.LF Palette, and with my little finger glided it over the inner corner and lid.
I then used the NO7 eyebrow pencil to lightly define the shape of my brows. I love the angled shape of the product making it easy to apply and create a good even shape at the start of my brows, which is always something I struggle with.
Then moving on to mascara, the waterproof NO7 Extreme Length mascara is incredible. I love how it elongated my small lashes and opened up my eyes. The fact is waterproof is great as well because I can take it on holiday.
The Max Factor lipstick is a great sheen finish but lasted really well. The simple pink muted shade is a lovely everyday glowy look, great on lighter skin tones.
Summer makeup for me is either all glowy vibes or glitter makeup! This look is super natural, sunkissed and glowy. I love the eyeshadow palettes that have a hint of shimmer to them, great for a subtle bit of glitter and glow. Overall the look is the perfect everyday makeup and the items are awesome for a holiday. Overall I would highly recommend the items I picked out especially the E.L.F eyeshadow palette and Max Factor lipstick, I can see myself getting a lot of use out of them. What do you think? Let me know in the comments.
As previously mentioned I love this perfume, so if you are looking for something new and fancy a floral summer scent then definitely try this one. It will be my goto over the next few months.
