Summer Makeup Picks

Summer may be creeping to an end but I'm still having a last fling with some pretty makeup. So before I start reaching for autumn hues here's 5 of my favourites I'm been wearing this summer.

For extra wow factor the Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Fuschia Flash may make me look like a barbie, but I love this shade of pink as it's so bright and neon! It's very daring but I find a bold lippie really does lift your complexion, as it's a blue tone pink I find it suits my colouring quite well. It has a semi matte finish, be sure to apply with a steady hand!

For flushed cheeks with a slight shimmer, NARS Orgasm is my go to blush for a sexy flush with it's rosey pink pigment. Use a light hand and you cheek bones will be nice and enhanced without trying to hard. It also lasts for ages, I havn't even hit pan on this baby yet.

Even though my skin gets a bit shiny now and then, I still opt for a liquid highlighter in the summer as I like how it adds a natural glow to my skin. This Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal is from Becca Cosmetics is a lovely pearly iridescent shade. I dab it lightly on the tops of my cheekbones and it's effortless shimmer in a tube. Love it.

Apart from Nars and Urban Decay, one of my favourite eye shadow brands has to be L'Oreal. They do fantastic single shades, like this Color Infallible one in Hourglass Beige. This champagne shade is shimmery without being glittery and once applied on your lids or in the inner corners of your eyes, catches the light and really lifts your eye look. The eye shadow pot is loosely packed pigment powder and comes with a stopper to pack all the shadow in.

I finally picked up one of Tanya Burr's lip glosses whilst browsing the aisles of Superdrug, I chose the popular Picnic in the Park. It's a soft pink, very pretty and girly - wearable for everyday. The sponge tip is a bit bendy for me, I thought it would be more firmer but the colour and formula is great. Not sticky and smells like sweets, what's not to love? Think I need to pick up a few more...
