This is a very simple summery look I did today. I had about 20 mins to apply it. I thought it was fresh and easy so I wanted to share with you all.
The products are listed below.

Hope you like..

(I’ll include a pic of the brushes I used too)


No 7 instant illusions ‘Rapid Radiance Balm’ – since I’ve reviewed this I’ve been using it all the time, I use it as a primer. It works brilliantly under my foundation. Or some days I wear alone.

Buff HD foundation – I use C35 (Hessions salon , Drumcondra or Clontarf)

Blank Canvas contouring & highlighting pallet – I use this for everything , setting my foundation. Contouring cheek bones etc, the peachy one I use as blush.. The white I use as eye shadow base. (FYI the discount code PIPPA still stands. 10% off any purchase over €15)

Sleek ‘face form’
I love the pink blush in this, it has a slight shimmer, I mix that with the peach from BC pallet.
The highlighter I use for under the brow bone, down the nose, and on the Cupid’s bow.


Bellapierre powder shadow in ‘Earth’
I got this in this months glossybox – something new I’d never tried. I love it. You can buy online or in house of Frasier I think.

Mac- ‘all that glitters’ & ‘smoked sepia’ eye shadow , I mixed a tiny but of this on the crease of my eye lids.

Maybelline Master Kajal kohl liner. It’s the same one that I was raving about a few weeks ago on here. I’m using it all the time and loving it. I’ve no time or patience for liquid liners, I always make a mess unless I take loads of time.

Rimmel Lash Accelerator endless mascara.
I reviewed this a few weeks ago too.

Eyebrows. I’ve been using this eyebrow pencil from Aldi! I know I can’t believe how good it is.
It’s from their Lacura range , I use the ‘blonde’ shade.
I will say though ,the brush on the end isn’t amazing , it’s okay, it does the job. I use my Blank Canvas eye brow brush instead to brush it out with.

Lips. I love this tinted lip balm.
It’s by Butter, it’s called ‘Apricot Sunray’ .. It’s so lovely and moisturising. A perfect summery shade to have. Available from Avoca.
