Last weekend I was very lucky to go along to the Southampton Bloggers Meet! Having been so busy recently I hadn't been to a blog event in ages and was very excited to meet some new lovely faces. Becky from BeckyBedbug very kindly offered me a lift so after a successful journey down the M3 it was time to meet up with everyone at Revolution in Southampton.

Clarins Aquatic Treasures Summer Bronzing Compact

Clarins Aquatic Treasures bronzer

With every new product launch, Clarins impresses me more and more. The summer Aquatic Treasures collection is absolutely beautiful and, for me, the product that stands out most is this bronzer.

It has a very intricate design and its best feature is that fact it is split into four quarters, each slightly varying in shade, so it suits all skin tones. I find that swirling all four shades together is too dark for me so I just mix the two lightest shades and use the darker as a contour, as each shades have a matte finish. Due to the size of the palette it is so easy to just use one shade if you wish.

I usually prefer to have a bit of shimmer in my bronzers but this is perfect for just adding a bit of warmth to my skin. This bronzer costs £30, which I think is great value because it is a very large compact and will see you through for a long time.

Clinique Cheek Pop Blush

Clinique has recently added some brand new shades to its range of Cheek Pop Blushes which are super sheer and soft for summer! The cute range of blushes first came of the scene last year and I picked up a very bright fuschia pink so I decided to pick up one of the softer shades when it was released.

Get the glow; my favourite illuminators

Last month I jetted off on a wonderful holiday to Crete! Arriving at the airport nice and early I had plenty of time for a spend up in duty free and, luckily, enough Boots points for a few last minute makeup purchases before boarding the plane to help me get my holiday glow! I went for Soap & Glory's Hocus Focus flaw-softening illuminator and Glow All Out luminizing powder. I also took my Clinique chubby stick highlighter on holiday with me.

Hocus Focus is a wonderful liquid illuminator and looks great mixed in with foundation to add a little glow. Glow All Out is a pink-toned shimmery powder, so I like to use this over my foundation on my cheeks.
The Clinique chubby stick is a handy little tool. Rather than spend time faffing with pouring out liquid and dabbing it on my cheeks I can just draw along my cheekbones and browbones and voila!

Korres CC Cream

Korres CC Cream

Summer, foundation and I just don't mix well together. As soon as it gets remotely warm my face is cakey, sweaty mess and any makeup I had on is sliding down to my chin by lunchtime. During the day I prefer to go for mineral makeup - I love BareMinerals - but in the evening I like a bit more coverage something to give me a glow. In comes Korres CC Cream.
