This is my honest everyday Summer Makeup look! I tried to keep it as real as possible and just edited out my ‘ums’ and any long winded techniques. My brows take forever πŸ™‚

It’s nothing fancy or ground breaking, but this is generally what I do on a daily basis if I’m wearing makeup. The eye look might change a bit if I’m feeling fancier or lazier. The lip colour might change if I’m feeling a bold or bright lip, but the base tends to not really. I’ve found what works for my skin in the heat, so I don’t want to jinx it too much if I’m going out and about. If I know I’m staying close to home, then I can experiment and trial new products πŸ™‚

It all depends on what you feel most comfortable with. For me, brows and a bit of eyeshadow definition is a must. Eyeliner is not necessary so it’s not something I do day to day. Once I have a wash of colour on my lids I am happy enough. The main components of my everyday Summer makeup look, I’ve spoken about a lot before. I think this is an important aspect of this video though. You know I like these products and above all, you know I trust them.irish beauty blogger

I won’t get into everything, but some of the main products I used are in my June Favourites here. I have a review the Urban Decay Primer here, and of both the foundations I used here and here. Mac Springsheen blush has been a favourite for literally years and the highlighter from Pixi is a new, but very loved favourite.top irish beauty blog

And that is my ‘errand running’ everyday Summer makeup. If you watched the video, you’ll get the joke πŸ™‚

Thanks for tuning it. Tell me, what are some of your Summer makeup essentials?

I’m a teeny bit late with my June Favourites, apologies. I reckon this heat is making us all a bit loopy and unproductive though, right? πŸ™‚

June was my birthday month, and although life is a bit of a rollercoaster at the minute being by mam’s side while she’s so ill. (Fuck Cancer!), every awesome person around me made my birthday bloody awesome. I got treated to afternoon tea by my bestie, had a BBQ in my honour in the gorgeous sun and was just generally a spoiled brat.June Favourites Beauty

There wasn’t many stand out June Favourites for this year. But I managed to sit down and think of a few. One skincare, of course makeup and even an oul fashion fave that I got for my birthday.

Yep, I am talking about the giant sunglasses upon my face :). They’re from Quay and I got them on ASOS.top irish beauty blogger

I am on my second tube of the Pixi Rose Cream Cleanser, so I definitely thought that was worth chatting about a little bit.beauty blog irelandbeauty blogger ireland

I have a post with chats and swatches about the Too Faced Chocolate Gold Palette here if you want to see the colours in action.top irish beauty blog

The Clarins Summer Bronzer is something I’ve already harped on about before here too. I haven’t used another bronzer since getting it though, so it really had to be in my June Favourites.top irish beauty site

Then finally my go to lip combo for the past two weeks which I demonstrated on Instagram here.

Too Faced Chocolate Gold PaletteI asked on Instagram stories, would you want to see swatched of the new Too Faced Chocolate Gold Palette. It was pretty much an unanimous yes, so here we are.

Too Faced Chocolate Gold Palette

I know people like quick fixes these days and would probably prefer to see these on social media. But I am still a blogger through and through, and sure it means there’s a permanent reference and it looks a bit better in website form. Thanks for taking the extra click πŸ™‚top irish beauty blog

The Too Faced Chocolate Gold Palette is the next collection of eyeshadows in their chocolate bar family.

The minute you open it, the waft of cocoa greets you. These palettes look like chocolate and they literally smell like it too. The palette itself is really sturdy and comes with a large mirror in the lid.irish beauty blogger

There is sixteen shades within. Four mattes including a larger panned light skin colour shade, a cool toned brown, a slightly warmer brown and a black.Too faced cosmetics ireland

Rollin’in Dough, So Boujee, Cocoa Truffle, Decadent.

The other twelve are all foiled with Chocolate Gold of course, being the star of the show.

I totes tried to fit them all in one pic….it didn’t work, soz! The second picture does give you a closer look at the finish though, so I’m not too mad it didn’t work out.

You get different variants of metallic gold within this palette, which I very much like. I’m not always a full on yellow gold kinda gal. I do enjoy a more taupe or bronzed gold across the lid day to day. There’s generally very wearable colours in it and then there’s definitely a couple more ‘out there’ shades. I’m talking about you ‘Money Bags and ‘New Money’. Too Faced, in my humble opinion do metallic shadows really well. This palette definitely reflects that. The mattes for me are grand. You can build them up, but they are harder to work with. I will be for sure playing around more with this palette more on social media, so if you want to see the colours in action on the eyes, make sure you’re following me πŸ™‚

You can find the Too Faced Chocolate Gold Palette now in store or online from Debenhams. It retails for €47. Do you own any of the Chocolate Bar Palettes?
