Woodland Walks & Makeup
We are very lucky to be surrounded by the outstanding beauty of the Surrey Hills. There is always somewhere glorious to walk, from farmlands, meadows, parks and deep woodland. I love this part of the world it’s simply magical. Right, back to the makeup! I am someone who is all or nothing when it comes to makeup and most often than not, I will be wearing a full face. Without sounding like a broken record, makeup makes me feel put together, confidant and happier in myself. I find I am open to doing a lot more when I have my makeup on. For example if I was bare faced all day and then my partner suggest we go for a drink at the local pub, I am less likely to want to go and there is no way I will put makeup on at the end of the day just to go out. I put my makeup on in the morning and if I still haven’t by lunchtime it’s unlikely I will. I am a creature of habit and I like to apply makeup on a freshly cleansed skin after my sunscreen. Once it’s on it’s on, I never touch up ever, only my lipstick and even that is rare.
I am really into my shimmer shadows at the moment and love doubling them up as a crease contour too! I think it’s fab for Summer and gives the look and overall glow. I have been mixing my two favourite foundations together to create the perfect base that looks fresh and lasts all day not touch up guaranteed! I set with one of my three favourite powders depending my my skin, lately It’s been Laura Mercier Translucent. I always finish with a setting spray and my favourite is Urban Decay All Nighter.
How about you? Are you a full face or not a lot of makeup kind of person? What does makeup mean to you if anything? and lastly what are some of your go-to products for Summer?!
