Full Speed Into Summer.

I hope I don't jinx it but are we finally getting the Summer we're long overdue? Let's hope so.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, I travelled to Exeter both days. With it being so hot and stuck on a packed train for 2 hours each day, I opted for minimal makeup.

I already showed you Tuesday's in my previous post. Here's Wednesday:


Face:
Illamasqua Matte Primer.
M.A.C Matchmaster Foundation - 1.
Benefit Boi-ing - Light.
HD Brows - Dark Brown (Vamp Palette)*.
M.A.C Powder Blush - Well Dressed.
M.A.C Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Light.

Eyes:
Urban Decay Primer Potion.
M.A.C Eyeshadow - Phloof! (inner corner/brow highlight, all over lid).
Illamasqua Precision Ink - Glister.
Nouveau Lashes Noir Mascara*.

Lips:
M.A.C Sheen Supreme Lipstick - Full Speed.

I didn't use too much colour but it still looks Summery and colourful. I think that's partly down to having bright hair and the addition of a big oversized flower clip.

I love how this all comes together. Full Speed is one of my ultimate Summer lip shades. It's a really opaque, bright watermelon coral with just a hint of pink. The formula on the Sheen Supreme lippies are very slick and moisturising but tend to have a lot more 'slip' than your average lipstick. I find the best way to apply it is blotting it onto your lip to leave a glossy stain.

Would it make me really vain if I said I'm in love with my brows here? I have an almost hate/hate relationship with them and have always suffered with severe brow envy with everyone else but I finally have decent brows myself!

What are your favourite Summer looks to wear?
