We hope you’re enjoying these features as much as we are! Today on TLBG, we’ve been chatting to the very lovely Clair from beauty, lifestyle and DIY blog, All About Clair.
Here’s is what’s inside Clair’s summer make-up bag…
I keep saying it lately but with summer fast approaching, I’ve started changing up my daily make up routine to suit the season. I recently uploaded a post talking about everything I use on my base layer, which you can find here, so for this post I’m just going to stick to the fun things; eyes, lips, cheeks and scent.
For such a small area, I certainly use a lot of different products on my eyes! Whenever I’m applying eye shadow I always start with a MAC Paint Pot in Painterly to prime and ensure the looks stays on for longer. Then I go onto the actual shadow and my Urban Decay Naked palette is always my go to choice (although this could change when Naked Smoky comes out!). I like to sweep Toasted all over the lid, go in with Naked in the crease and brighten the corners of the eyes with Virgin. Finally I line my eyes in the outer corners with a Charlotte Tilbury Rock’N’Kohl Pencil in Barbarella Brown and finish the look off with my trusty Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara.
If you read my coral edit last week you’ll know that lately I’ve been reaching for the MAC blush in Melba for a summery glow. But I’ve also recently rediscovered Benefit Hervana Blush and I must admit that I’ve been using this more lately than not. I also don’t think you can beat a good high lighter and NARS Multiple in Copacabana is my first choice for creating an all over radiant glow.
In the summer months my lips tend to dry out so I’ve been making sure to apply this Burts Bees lip balm every morning and evening to stop any pesky dry lip situation occurring. On top of this, I’ve also been loving the Revlon Ultra HD Lipsticks lately. They are so pigmented, yet so hydrating and they smell absolutely gorgeous! My favourites are Hydrangea and Hibiscus.
Pretty much all of my everyday fragrances come from the Marc Jacobs range, I mean what’s not to love? They all smell gorgeous (although the jury’s still out on Lola for me I’m afraid) and the packaging is to die for. I’m currently reaching for Daisy Dream, which has a musky/fruity/floral smell (if that’s even a thing!) It really is perfect for summer and it is certainly taking pride of place within my day-to-day routine at the moment.
