Everyday Summer Drugstore Makeup

This summer I have been going for quite a light base, a bronze eye and a nude lip for my every day makeup. I thought I should go through my summer makeup routine as I did my spring makeup a few months ago and I want to make it a seasonal thing. So even though summer may be over in 1 week (*cries*) this is what I have been wearing most makeup wearing days!

I'll usually prime my skin to make sure my makeup lasts all day, one of my favourite primers is the Maybelline Baby Skin Primer, however I also love using the Body Shop Instablur Primer. I don't want to wear a thick and heavy layer of foundation, so  BB Cream has been the one for me recently. I love the Body Shop All In One BB Cream and I find it works best when I use a flat foundation bruas it allows me to get lots of coverage and an even layer. Under my eyes I used the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer, and I'll go ahead and set this all with the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder.

I always use the Sleek Face Form Palette it's my absolute favourite. It comes with a blush, contour and a highlight all in one palette which is so handy. I really like the blush shade, it's almost rose gold as it is pink with golden undertones. So pretty!

My every day eyebrow product is the Rimmel Brow Pencil and I just simply fill in my eyebrows but very naturally. Recently I have been loving wearing bronze and golden shades on my eyes, so as an eyeshadow base I use the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze. This is a cream eyeshadow but also works as an eyeshadow base! For a bit more colour, I tend to go in with some eyeshadow, I have been using this MUA Heaven and Earth eyeshadow palette quite a lot as it has a lot of natural bronze shades, it is also very cheap and affordable! Finally for mascara, I used my new favourite which is the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara. I cannot recommend this mascara enough, it's amazing!

I tend to go for a nude shade on my lips, as this makeup is a drugstore makeup look, I decided to go with the Revlon Lacquer Balm in Demure. This is such an old favourite of mine but I still love it! It gives a really natural pinky nude shade!

And that is everything! I hope you liked this post and thank you for reading!


  1. It's crazy how many of these products that I own! I have been using Instablur recently, which I love, but I'd love to try out the Maybelline Baby Skin Primer. Sleek do such incredible palettes - mine is really old and is basically empty, so I might have to treat myself to a sparkling new one sometime soon! Love this look :) x x x

  2. You've mentioned some really great products! There are so many fab products available at the drugstore these days x


  3. I also love a BB cream in summer, I love bodyshop products so I might give the BB cream a try :) thanks for sharing these items! x


  4. This sounds like a lovely makeup up look, I love wearing BB creams - especially my Garnier one. I must start wearing my Body Shop again as so many people say good things about it xo

  5. I really want to get on the Bodyshop bb cream-train because it sounds so amazing! This post inspired me to try something a little different with my makeup :)

  7. I just finished Porefessional and have been looking for a drugstore alternative as it's a bit more than my budget. I will definitely be popping into The Body Shop to try the Instablur Primer, I've never even heard of it before!
