Simple Summer Glow-y Makeup {Cruelty-Free}

Summer is the time of glow-y, dewy, bronze-y makeup. I never wear loads of makeup anyway but the feeling of your makeup gradually melting off your face is not pleasant. Although this isn’t ‘sweat’ proof or summer proof makeup, this is a super simple dewy makeup look which is perfect for everyday wear in summer. So let’s get into it…..



Primer: Too Faced Hangover Primer. This primer is perfect for if your skin gets really dry in the summer time, as it adds moisture as well as smooths over them pores.

Foundation: Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow in Shade Fair 1. I honestly hate wearing foundation in the summer time, but this foundation is more like a BB cream and feels so light when wearing.

Concealer: Collection 100 in the shade Fair 1. This is a dupe for the Nars creamy concealer and since Nars have turned to the dark side {they are no longer cruelty free} I would go ahead and grab this. It’s honestly great for brightening under the eyes and for covering imperfections.

Powder: RMCA Powder. This is the best translucent powder ever, it’s sold on amazon but it comes in a huge pot so it will last you forever!!!!

Bronzer: Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow in Shade Fair. This contour shade is great if you have fairer skin like me and the CT bronzer’s are very blendable which is also great.

Highlight: ABH Glow Kit ‘That Glow’. For my highlight I mixed the shade moonstone with summer. This is believe to be the perfect highlight for my skin tone, plus, ABH highlighters are super pigmented. So a win win really.

Base colour: Illamasqua Vintage Metallix Pot in the shade ‘Courtier’. This is a really pretty base colour, it has a lil bit of shimmer {but not too much ya know} so it’s perfect for the bottom colour on ya lid.

Eyes: ABH Modern Renaissance Palette. This palette is worth every single penny. The main thing I love about these shadows is that there isn’t a huge amount of fall out in the matte shades {which is a constant burden} and the shimmers are soooo pigmented. I used a combination of the shades ‘Tempera’, ‘Golden Ochre’, ‘Raw Sienna’ and ‘Burnt Orange’ as all my transition and crease shades. I then took ‘Primavera’ as my lid colour. This eye look is sooo simple and gives that gorgeous burnt orange eye look which a lot of MUA’s are creating at the moment.

Brows: ABH Brow wiz in the shade ‘Blonde’. If you are looking for decent brow products, then ABH is the place to begin. The brow wiz is honestly worth every penny so go out and buy it. {do it for the brows guys come on}


For my lips all I did was add a touch of Colourpop’s Ultra glossy lip in the shade ‘My Jam’. I wanted this makeup to be as simple and lightweight as possible so no heavy liquid lipsticks or lipsticks in general.
