The Summer Base

The Summer Base - Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick in Ibiza and Wonderglow, Jouer Matte Moisture Tint and Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer

Whilst I was on holiday last month, I discovered a great base combination that was perfect for summer nights. The combination of the following products gave me a glowy and luminous finish, yet gave good coverage that was light on the skin whilst giving me that sun kissed glow.

I primed my skin with the Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow, an instant soft focus beauty flash that gives the skin a beautiful radiant glow. It brightens the skin and leaves it looking luminous whilst blurring fine lines!

Following this, I apply the Jouer Matte Moisture Tint which is a great base for summer, it is a lightweight tinted moisturizer that blends easily with the fingertips. It gives great coverage for such a lightweight base and leaves a velvety matte finish to the skin. If you have combination to oily skin, this is the perfect choice for Summer. It also contains SPF 15 so protects your skin too. This is all I wore all last summer and will digging it out again this year for sure!

I then cover under eye circles and noticeable blemishes with my favorite do-it-all concealer, the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. This blends into the skin easily, gives great coverage and doesn’t leave it looking heavy at all, making it the perfect choice for the summer months.

To add the most authentic sun kissed glow to the skin, the Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick in Ibiza is just the best. Literally draw this on to the skin where the sun would hit your face (or alternatively as a contour) and blend with your fingertips. This literally melts into the skin leaving your skin bronzed in the most natural way. This is great for touch ups on-the-go too as no brushes are required.

Now that Summer has arrived in New York, these products are sure to be staples of mine throughout the hot weather, I cannot wait!
