Summery

Summary of the products from my collection, aiming to put the Sunflowers in the shade this Summer



bare minerals 'Neutralising' Primer ( part of 4 piece sampler set from TKMAXX, (gifted) £7.99 ) is a butter-yellow toned, non coverage product - so rather than turn the skin yellow, it slightly dulls/'neutralises' some of the redness. With neutral fair skin, I don't want anything too heavy or yellow to compete with that - but a light tint, and barrier works wonders. Smoothing, without feeling siliconey, it also boasts spf, although I use such a small amount, that I wouldn't rely on it to be my sole sunscreen.
Coupled with their oil control version in problem areas - that came from the same sampler set, and I discussed in my everyday makeup post - they are an unstoppable (to a certain celcius) duo.

I am also lucky enough to sample a selection of nars, thanks to the Cheek and Lip Palette circa 2015, and my overly generous cousins toasting me turning 21; the enclosed highlight in Albatros is what screams summer to me. Well maybe not on paper/in pan - looking stark white - but it's one of those deceiving, completely different from the pan products, as far from look chalky on the skin, it throws back gold. Being fair, this can be a bit too colourful - but lightly, it's gorgeously shiny and brings a new meaning to the phrase golden girls.
The RT Setting Brush (Amazon £2) has become my highlight's partner in shine, since it's more targeted than the one I used before, and the all over taper is a shape I generally like in brushes. With Albatros (and other bolder highlights) it's perfect to help work the shade in, to be more at one with the skin.
