Benefit 15 hour Primer
Garnier 5 second Perfect Blur
This combo should erase any traces of fine lines from my 30 year old forehead and ensures my make-up stays put in the 40 degree + heat!
Bare Minerals in Medium
By Terry Or de Rose Teint Supreme (from Space.NK sale)
I wanted a light option for a cream foundation and a powder which I think works well in the heat.
YSL Touche Eclat in II
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Medium
Lancome Waterproof Under Eye Concealer
The ever-popular Collection concealer covers blemishes perfectly, while the waterproof Lancome and Touche Eclat will work together to banish under-eye dark circles.
I chose the Laura Mercier as I love using a cream bronzer for a natural contour, whereas the powder is essential to help tone down my oiliness.
NARS Cactus Flower
Soap & Glory Cheekmate
This was tough to narrow down - I love blusher! I have gone for a couple of cream options as they give a lovely glow, and again, the powder option is to help when it gets too hot!
YSL Dare to Glow Fatal Red
Estee Lauder Powder Gelee in Topaz Chameleon
I love this cream highlighter for a gorgeous sheen on the cheekbones; it is a lovely flattering colour and works well with a tan. The Estee Lauder gelee is one of my all time favourite products, soo beautiful!
By Terry Powder
Make Up Store HD Powder
I bought the By Terry from the Space.NK sale for an absolute steal. My favourite thing about it is the microfibre puff - the softest I've ever used.
Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer
Part of my fab gift from my Aunt who works for Smashbox in New Zealand. Keeps shadows put.
MAC 4 palette in Brulee, All That Glitters, Bronze and Espresso
A good range of neutral, buildable colours that will look good with a tan.
L'oreal False Lash Telescopic Waterproof
Of course it has to be this - makes my lashes as long as They're Real but has amazing waterproofness as an added bonus.
GOSH Brow Kit
This bargain from GOSH does the job, no frills. I have tinted my eyebrows so this is just a back up really.
L'Oreal Luminizer for Brown Eyes
This is new, so I hope I will like it!
Nude Eyeliner from Illamasqua
To give a wide, fresh-eyed look
Bourjois Paris Colour Boost Lip Crayon in Orange Punch
Rimmel Exaggerate in Eastend Snob
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella
A nude liner, a chunky bright coral and a deep red.
YSL Rouge per Couture (don't know the colour)
My favourite lip colour this summer - hot pinky, corally colours and a neutral option too.
Bourjois Effet 3D in Coral Artistic
Just to emphasise the corally-orange.
An absolute must-have, the Korres lip butter in Jasmine. I am going to try and find an SPF balm too, I'm sure I have one somewhere!
Urban Decay Lip Primer Potion
I love this as much as the eye primer.
Boots No. 7
I have used these for years. Fab. I heat them with my hair dryer to set the curl.
Real Techniques - Expert Face Brush, Stippling Brush, Eye Brushes
Eco-Tools Bamboo - fan, eye brushes
Lancome - angled powder brush
MAC - blush brush and eye blending brush
A good selection from my favourite brush brands, though I left my Body Shop ones out this time, I need to replace my Face and Body Brush.
