As a busy mum of three I am always looking for ways and products to speed up my makeup routine and the latest solution I have come up with is applying a primer with SPF and a powder foundation to create a lightweight but long-wear base, perfect for summer, followed by a pop of blush, a swipe of eye enhancing mascara and a touch of brightening lipstick...all in 5 minutes!
Here are the products I have used to create my quick summer look:
Nars Pro-Prime Multi Protective Primer SPF 30, which I chose in place of a standard moisturizer with SPF because it prevents the powder foundation from sinking into pores better than a moisturizer does. (Review here)
Laura Geller Balance N Brighten powder foundation in Fair, which I chose for its buildable coverage and luminosity (review here)
Laura Geller Blush N Brighten Blush in Roseberry, which I chose for its beautiful rosy shade (review here)
Laura Geller Double-Dipped Lipstick in Carribean Kiss (pink side), which I chose for its brightening colour
Benefit They Are Real Mascara, which I chose for its smudge proof quality (review here)
Here is a picture of my summer look:
