Quick summery make-up looks

When it comes to summer make-up I don't want to spend a lot of time on it, frankly I would rather be outside making the most of good weather (or exploring my surroundings if I am on holiday). When I am travelling, I tend to pack just a small amount of make-up, preferably multi-use products. I tend to mainly wear lippy on its own, but I want to have options  just in case.

The following two looks take about 5-10 minutes, and are very easy.

Day time (or understated evening) look.

Products used:

1. W3ll people Universalist no.6 (blood orange) I used this on the eye lids and on the cheeks for a pop of colour.

2. Ilia beauty sway bronzer. Used on the eye lids ( from the midway point to the outer corner) and a little on the inner corners of the eyes. Also a little on the cheekbones, for a hint of shimmery bronze effect.

3. Ilia beauty mascara in macao. To finish off the eye look and add a little sparkle to the lashes.

4. Ilia beauty lipstick in Voila + lip gloss in White rabbit. Bright lip with a little shimmer to bring the look together.

I really like how the oranges and the browns work together, you could also add a little brown eyeliner if you want more definition for the evening.

Evening look.

Products used:

1. RMS eyeshadow in solar. All over the lid and on the inner corners of the eyes.

2. Himalaya herbals black kohl. Any soft black pencil will work just as well, eye like these kohls because you don't nee to sharpen them, great option for makeup on the go. Draw a line like you would normally on the upper eyelid (I normally do from midway to the outer corner) then carefully smudge it into the shadow with your finger for a soft smoky look. Then line under the lower lash line (from outer corner to the middle), if the line is a little to thick, remove some colour with a cotton bud.

3. Une all in one mascara. To finish the eye look.

4. Ilia crayon in Karma chameleon. Use this on lips and cheeks. For the application on the cheeks, I draw a little circle on the back of my hand, lift of a little colour with my finger and then blend like any other cream blush. It stays on all day and has a matt appearance on the cheeks.

 Probably one of my favourite evening looks, black and gold really complement each other and coral lipstick is still my number one choice for summer months.
