Everyday Makeup Look | Summer 2020

AD | Hello my lovelies, happy Monday, I hope that you're all doing amazing and having a wonderful start to your week! I don't know about anyone else but whenever it's the spring and summer months I literally just want to throw some makeup on and get out and enjoy the sunshine but I also want makeup that is going to stay put and last all day long and into the summer evenings so I've teamed up with Lotil * and wanted to share with you my go-to Summer makeup look for 2020 and why you need to include Lotil's Lip Care SPF30 Balm * into your daily makeup or skincare routine.

- FACE -

Thankfully due to the fact that the months in lockdown I have concentrated more on my skincare routine and have only been wearing a little makeup now and again whenever I've needed to jump on a quick video call for my blogging management, I've not needed loads of makeup and have been wearing the barest face.

I haven't worn foundation in about a year or so as my skin has been doing really wonderful - I personally think it's all the meditation I've been doing but that's for another post maybe. I've only been wearing concealer if I've had one of them lurky period spots, you know the ones that stick around under the skin for about a week getting bigger and bigger, turning brighter red and then just going away? Them ones. My go-to concealer right now is Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Infinite Longwear Concealer, it is a perfect shade for my Snow White pale skin.

- EYES -

I adore eyeshadow and have so many palettes that I always struggle on which ones to choose from when doing my makeup, however, my favourite ever palettes are always by Makeup Revolution. My favourite palette at the moment is Makeup Revolution's X Imogenation The Eyeshadow Palette, I've been using the shade '2Nice' in my crease and shade 'Angel' in my tear duct. These shades seem to brighten my blue eyes up whenever I've needed to look like I haven't been awake all night watching Netflix and brightening up above my eyes seems to hide them horrible bags under my eyes.

As for eyeliner, since it's the summertime, I've been using a bright blue shade from Barry M Cosmetics' Bold Blue Waterproof Eyeliner in shade 'oasis blue' paired with my favourite mascara, the Barry M Cosmetics "ShowGirl" Extra Volumising Black Mascara, You can really take lashes from wimpy to WOW in an instant with this mascara, the mega plush brush in this mascara lifts up and fans out every lash, providing Va Va Volume! The extra black, bold formula plumps even the sparsest lashes into daringly thick ones. I adore it this mascara so much!

- LIPS -

For months now I've been using Lotil Lip Cares Lip Balm * in my everyday routine. Lotil Lip Care is an effective treatment for dry lips, it contains all the skin moisturising and other benefits of Lotil Cream to help combat sore, chapped and cracked lips, with added SPF 30 will help protect your lips. This product is dermatologically tested and PABA free. It feels super soft on the lips and doesn't go flaky or make lips feel dry or greasy after use, perfection for the warmer summer months.
