My Daily Summer Makeup


I got into a bit of a routine this summer (give or take a concealer or lip gloss here and there) and this is more or less the everyday makeup look I've resorted to when I'm not aiming for something special nor looking for remarkable staying power - with the NARS Tinted Moisturizer I have to carry some sort of powder compact to blot away the shine in the T-zone as the day goes by. 

All in all, this look is easy and takes me about 10 minutes to do each morning. I've been wearing it to school (oh the joys of summer courses), work, or just stepping out for coffee with friends. Here's how it goes down:



Products used:
NARS Tinted Moisturizer in shade "Alaska"
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection concealer in shade #3 (only available in the UK)
MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner in "Petting Pink"
Dior Matte Bronzer in shade 02 "Honey" (discontinued)

    1. I use the Quo Professional Bronzer Brush. It's similar to the sephora #44 brush (maybe a tinny bit bigger).

  5. Which pressed powder do you use to take down shine? I find I don't like a lot of pressed powders, but loose ones are really messy to carry around.

    1. I hate most pressed powders too. I don't have one that I really love at the moment, just trying to use up my MAC Careblend (that I wouldn't recommend), and the Shiseido Mattifying Compact..

  7. wondering if the NARS tinted primer is good or not??
    is it moisturizing???
    I'm considering to buy this after testing at the counter...
    but then it's really pricey, so really wanna make sure if it suits me!

    thanks!

    1. hi! yes, it is quite moisturizing... I have oily skin so that doesn't really work so well for me but if you have more normal/dry combination skin I think you will really like it. great colour selection too!

  8. and one thing... I've been using Bobbi Brown Mineral powder for some time, and I absolutely love it. it's so light in texture and it is so sheer. and it doesn't dry up my skin and emphasize my flakes.

    love it!
