Guest Blog Post - My Summer Face

Hello to all of Natalie’s lovely readers,

As I am ambushing (well not quite) her blog while she was away I thought I would take this opportunity to do a post on some products I think I will be using a LOT this Summer.
I am always after an easy, light coverage make-up in the summer. I don’t like to have make-up dripping from my face but I also like to make sure I have enough coverage that can give me that naturally sun-kissed look.

The first product within my Summer face to rave about is Origins VitaZing. After hearing almost every beauty blogger talk about how amazing Origins VitaZing is, I thought I would give it a go. This product is certainly worth the hype. While it is essentially a moisturiser, I see it as being much more than that. You blend it onto your skin and as you start to rub it in you instantly notice a slight tan colour coming out that blends with your skin tone. You don’t look orange, you just look like you have an even skin tone with a really subtle glow.
I have been wearing the same products on my face for the past week so I thought I would share them with you.

Firstly we have Origins VitaZing which is simply amazing and totally worth £22.50.
Then we have MAC’s Blush in Well Dressed which is one of my all-time favourites. It is so easy and wearable and creates a lovely flush to the cheek. It is a light pink but it doesn’t make you look like you are a doll.

Then there’s concealer. My favourite for the past 8 months has been MAC’s studio finish concealer. I am in the colour NW15 and I absolutely love it. Even for summer, it is perfect coverage.

Then finally we have Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder in number 52. I love this bronzer. It has some subtle shimmer and is so easy to apply on the face. I use my Sigma F25 brush and I can easily say it is such an easy product to work with. The bonus is that it looks like chocolate and smells like coconut – amazing!

Overall I would recommend all products I have mentioned and I fully plan on this being my Summer face routine. What is going to be in yours?

  1. I've heard so many good things about this Origins Vitazing but to be honest the price has always put me off. It is steep, but I'm so curious to try it! Defo one to hide from the bf if i do buy it! lol xx
