Now that Summer’s *finally* rolled around, (well it has at the time of writing this anyway) I wanted to get out some new makeup products from my stash and fall back in love with them again.

The only new product here is the Benefit Ka’ Brow eyebrow product that I picked up fairly recently, and love! Its such a good colour for Blondes and definitely has a natural look to it. Even though it looks small, the pot has SO much product in and I can tell its doing to last me for quite some time. Its also pretty easy to use, despite what I orginally thought!

For foundation/base, I’ve fallen back in step with the Clinique foundation stick and a damp beauty blender. I haven’t used this pairing for ~aggggeeees~ but I’m definitely at least half way down the tube in terms of usage. I just swipe a few lines on my face and it blends in seamlessly. This way you can also stick to a much lighter coverage, or it builds easily if you want a bit more full coverage finish. It looks so natural and perfect for Summer I think. I’ve been using this with my Bourjois old favourite concealer for a bit of under-eye magic, whilst not being heavy in the slightest.

I’ve brought my L’oreal La Terra Glam Bronze back out, like I do every summer! I think the golden highlight-y colour just works perfect this time of year, and looks really pretty in the sun.

For my cheeks, I’ve been trying to use my Benefit Lolli-tint which is a purple/pink stain, for a ‘pop’ on the apples of my cheeks that always makes me look sooo much more awake and ready to face the day.

Lastly, I’ve fallen *back* in love with my fave ever eyeshadow palette from Smashbox, which is just incredible! It has the most perfect mix of shimmer and matte shades which compliment my skintone really well.
