The warm weather has finally blessed us with it's presence and with regards to makeup, I've fully embraced the glow. Light and bright bases, a healthy flush to my cheeks, a generous helping of highlight and a nice balmy lip is the look I'm repeatedly sporting, have a look at some of my current everyday favourites.


No7 High Shine Lip Crayon in Delicate Pink £9 | Aren't lip crayons wonderful? Balmy, travel friendly and really low maintenance, this pinky shade is the perfect transition-to-summer hue, it's got just the right level of intensity to brighten up your face, I could just do this, a tinted moisturiser and brows and be out the door. I really enjoy the formula of these No7 crayons (the nude shade is beautiful too), they're definitely as good as the high end alternatives.

Hourglass Ambient Blush in Luminous Flush £32 | How late to the party am I with these? I picked up Luminous Flush a little while back and I can't put it down! It gives a lovely rose/coral flush with a golden satin finish that's so desperately flattering on the cheeks, and the powder formula lasts really well on the cheeks through hot weather.

Missha M Magic Cushion £10.50 | I've got my cushion foundations on rotation at the moment, I can't get enough of their lightweight coverage and from-within glow . The M Magic cushion from Missha is more liquidy than some of my others but sets to a 'healthy skin' finish that looks light and just like your own skin. C21 is a great match for my NC20-25 skin, it's an excellent and affordable alternative for more expensive cushions like Amore Pacific or my beloved IOPE Air cushion (review here).

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light £38 | Since the onset of warmer weather, and my skin not looking so deathly pale, I've been really enjoying sweeping this almost all over my face, concentrating on the backs of my cheeks, nose and hairline, to warm up my complexion. Seeing as my Hera UV Mist cushion (review here) is a tad light, this is the perfect product to make everything meld together, and the NARS Yachiyo brush is my weapon of choice - tapered brushes FTW.


Kevyn Aucoin Creamy Sculpting Duo £22.50 | I'm still in love with this dinky little palette (have a look at my full review here), it's creamy texture blends so beautifully on top of cushion foundations, which are all I'm reaching for at the moment. The contour pan gives just the right shade and intensity of shadow, I just dab a teeny bit underneath my cheekbones and smudge any remainder around my hairline. The highlight is just as perfect, natural and beautiful, rather like the RMS Living Luminizer.

Josie Maran Illuminizing Wand $28 | This little stick is perfect for drawing an effortless glow onto your cheekbones. More golden than some of my other highlighters, the argan oil infused cream glides on and blends effortlessly on my skin. This plus Luminous Flush from above is the most beautiful combination for light-olive-tan skins, I'm absolutely loving it.


Kiko Wanderlust Kabuki Brush £17 | I love everything about this kabuki brush. It's a pewtery-rose gold to start with, and the bristles themselves are great quality, so soft and dense. We've had a few near torrid days in the Home Counties and sticky liquid foundations are the last thing I want on a day like that. Instead, I've been buffing some of my beautiful Dior Nude Air loose powder around my face with this kabuki and it does such a wonderful job.
