The sun finally made an appearance this weekend so I thought it was the perfect time to try out a new 'summer glow' makeup routine. For the past few weeks I've been using the By Terry Serum Terrybly Sunbooster and I absolutely love it! It's a serum that gives you a gradual natural tan as well as hydrating and protecting your skin. It smells absolutely gorgeous, like trees and grass (that's the only way I cant describe it). I was lucky enough to be given this at the Space NK press event but when I did some research on it and found out it was a whooping £65, I was a bit taken back. Even with this in mind, I've decided that I would repurchase it. It's such a lovely serum and it has given me a nice subtle glow whilst proving to be a great moisturiser.
So anyway, onto the makeup! I started by using my NARS Tinter Moisturiser, that not only gives good coverage but it is SPF30. I'm annoyingly in between shades, so I use both Finland and Alaska. I then used my Soleil tan de Chanel with my Real Techniques Stippling brush in the contours of my cheeks, on my temples and down my nose. My favourite highlighter for a summer glow is the Jemma Kidd Dewy Glow All over Radiance cream in 'Rose Gold'. I use my finger to apply this along the tops of my cheekbones, under my brows, down my nose and on my cupids bow. To add to the dewy look, I then use the Jemma Kidd cream blusher in 'Paw Paw', again using my finger to apply and blend in.
I tried to keep my eyes quite simple, because anything too heavy would ruin the overall look. For a shadow I used the Makeup Forever aqua cream in Pink Beige, which is a really subtle pink cream shimmer. I then used a Clinique high definition mascara in Black Brown, which is something very new to me. I always use black mascara, but I just thought brown would work better and would look more natural... and it did! I ended with the L'Oreal Rouge Caresse in Dating Coral as it's really moisturising and very summery.
Sorry there isn't photo of me with the final look, the lighting was awful, but I can promise that I looked fresh, dewy and glowing.
