I'm going to skip the whole favourites thing this month and just focus on a few make up products that I've been using pretty much everyday throughout June. With it being Summer I've been all about a bronzey look with a lot of blinding highlight, settled down a little with matte eyes.

I've been loving the Kat Von D Lock It primer, this is a hydrating primer so it's going to help achieve a glowy/dewy skin look. It's also very light and feels weightless on the skin which is perfect for the hot weather so you don't feel too claggy. But also the clue is in the name, it's all about 'locking' your make up down so hopefully this should prevent the sun melting your foundation away.

My Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit palette has been getting a lot of love recently, I've been turning to the bronzer in the palette to add some really nice warmth to my face, this bronzer is giving me such a healthy and glowy bronze that doesn't look cakey or too faux. It's such a finely milled powder with a hint of glitz, but overall it's quite sheer'y and it can be built up if you wish. I focus this mostly on my forehead and work it into the hairline so it looks more natural, bronze goddess perfection.

To add my pop of highlight which is always essential no matter what the weather or season, I've been using and abusing my Laura Mercier Indiscretion powder, this is similar to MAC's Soft & Gentle which I recently ran out of, but this is just that little bit better and obviously it looks gorgeous in pan. It looks a little dark but it still works on my pale skin, it gives a gorgeous golden glow to the cheekbones with little flecks of shimmer. I've been applying this with a fan brush to really diffuse the colour and hit precise points.

Last but not least, my beloved Tartelette Amazonian Clay eyeshadow palette, I've had this for a long time now but It's my only palette with all matte shades. I find that because my bronzer and highlighter, (and skin, actually,) are all quite dewy and glowy a matte eye really kind of softens the look and makes it more day appropriate, and I don't want my face just looking all greasy and shimmery. I've been using the nude shades in the palette all over the lid and then the medium to dark browns in the crease and outer v. I've been using the black shade 'Smokeshow,' to line my eyes and add a really delicate and light flick.

What products do you love to use in the Summer for a healthy glow and some bronzed up umpfh?
