I recently discovered that I have been using the wrong shade of foundation, something I would never have realised if I hadn’t bought the lighter shade by accident!! It got me thinking about how to condense my make up routine to be as quick and as natural as possible. With trends like contouring and baking still all the rage on Instagram, it’s easy for our morning routines to last a couple of hours nowadays. But if you’re anything like me, you’d prefer to spend that extra time in bed. And now that summer is on the way I’d rather opt for a lighter look and not risk my face sliding off in the warm weather! So I’ve teamed up with Pixi Beauty (who are known for their amazing skincare) to create a more manageable summertime routine using a few of their makeup products.
Mesmerizing Mineral Palette in Copper Peach
As soon as I saw this palette I knew I would love it. Any eyeshadow that is brown/copper/gold is made for me! It has 6 different shades in a mix of matte and shimmer colours. I prefer to use the lighter shimmer shades to highlight my brow bone and the inner corners of my eyes and the dark matte brown on my lid. If copper or brown isn’t really your thing don’t worry, Pixi Beauty have this palette in a variety of shades to compliment all eye colours.

Lengthy Fibre Mascara
Although this is a natural summer look, I still like to make the most of at least one feature and for me I always opt for the eyes. This mascara makes it so easy for your eyes to stand out because it adds about 10x more length than other mascara’s I’ve tried. You can almost see the fibres on the brush when you open the tube; they look like little lashes waiting to catch on to your own. It isn’t a wet mascara either so there’s no danger of clumping. Another impressive feature is that it washes off with minimal effort when you cleanse your face. So no more panda eyes before bed!

Glowtion Day Dew
If you love strobing or just highlighters in general then this product is a must have for you. Glowtion is such a cool name! When you rub the lotion in it starts to give an iridescent glow which blends in to your skin and kind of blurs away imperfections at the same time. It means you could get away with wearing this and just a touch of concealer or if you’re feeling brave then maybe this is all you need for your summer glow!

Mattlustre Lipstick in Peach Blossom
This lipstick is like a burst of colour. It’s matte texture makes the colour really intense so if you wanted your lips to be the feature of this look you can certainly achieve it with this shade! For my look I sheered it down by dabbing it over moisturised lips to create a more subtle look. Often dabbing lipstick on gives it a more natural finish rather than sweeping it on.

Quick Fix Bronzer
Quick fix is definitely an appropriate name for this bronzer. It comes with a built-in puff and mirror on the lid so that you don’t need any extra brushes or fiddly bits. All you do is dab the puff on your face where you want to apply the bronzer and it comes out automatically which makes it ideal to carry in my makeup bag. It’s one of those bronzers that suit all skin shades and types so you don’t need to worry about looking tangoed!
