Makeup look book: Summer – Day to night


Recently I filmed a GRWM over on my YouTube, so I thought I would go into a little more detail of the look here. I wanted to do a look that I could wear all day, and then freshen up a little for the evening time as I was heading out to a bar opening. The bar just screamed summer, so I really wanted a bright and perfect summer glow look for the occasion.

The Perfect base

I started off with my current favourite foundation. This was the Illamasqua liquid foundation. I applied a heavier amount than I usually would for a daytime look, but as it needed to last and the weather was quite warm, I really wanted to make sure the coverage stuck.


After this was blended in, I used my NYX HD concealer and the NYX highlight and contour palette to brighten my under eye and add some definition to my face.

Summer Eyes & Glow


For my eyeshadow I really didn’t want it to be too heavy as I was going to be in work during the day, but also wanted something that I could build up later on. Using the morphe 35W palette I layered soft picks and oranges to achieve a bright and summery look for my eyes, that could easily transition into a night time look with a few darker shades on the outer corner! For mascara I used the NYX more to love mascara and added a few coats to last me until the evening time.

Of course for my brows I used the Anastasia Beverly hills dip brow pomade, but I have talked about using this on a previous post here. To get that gorgeous summer glow we all want to have at this time of year I used the Rosie Huntington-Whiteley highlighter in the shade Rose. The last touch was adding the Urban Decay Setting spray to ensure that everything was set, and would last all night!
