Time to review what I have been loving the most over the last four weeks...
 
I have really been enjoying quite a few makeup products this last month and so I thought that I would include a little FOTD in this post to show you what look I have been creating with the products seen above. I have been using my Nars Sheer Glow foundation as my main base which creates a very flawless look regardless. However, when I have been teaming it up with my new Mac Pro-Longwear Concealer (review) my skin looks so much better. It is a medium cover in terms of concealer, but because of the liquid formula it blends seamlessly into my foundation and provides a flawless dewy face that isn't too heavy yet hides every imperfection.
 
I have also really enjoyed using my Nars Matte Multiple in ALTAI (review) as a cream bronzer as well as my Topshop Cream Blush in Head Over Heels (review) as I find that the two cream products blend really well into my base adding to that flawless dewy appearance. I think in summer it is nicer to have lighter make up that isn't too heavy with lots of powder based products. I feel like it provides a fresher, more natural look to my makeup.
 
I was given a sample of the Nars Blush in Orgasm and although I loved the colour, I found that it was too shimmery and glitzy on my cheeks. It is a peachy, pink blush with flecks of gold and I thought that it looked a bit too much as a face product. As an eye shadow however - I have not put this bad boy down! I was watching a Lily Pebbles video and she used a glittery, peachy eye shadow which looked great with her completion and eye colour. As I have fairly pale skin and dark eyes and hair I thought that I would give Orgasm a second chance - as an eyeshadow - and I really enjoyed the outcome.
 
To finish my summery make up look I have been applying Mac's Real Doll Lipstick (review) which is a gorgeous soft pink that makes your teeth look white, your skin looked tanned and your lips look plump and full. On my nails I literally haven't taken off the No.7 Stay Perfect Nail Varnish in Duck Egg. I usually opt for quite girly pinks or reds for my nails but I have been loving this bright blue as I think it looks so fresh and summery.
 
 
What have you been loving this past month - makeup or otherwise?
