The Summer Face: Cream Edition

Sometimes when the sun is shining I want to use hydrating cream based products to give my skin a really healthy glow.


An SPF is a must for the Spring time and I love using this light weight La Roche Posay Anthelios XL 50+ as it sinks into the skin becoming undetectable, allowing your makeup to sit perfectly on top. Read more about it here

I have spoken about my favourite duo here, but adding the L'Oreal Lumi Magique Primer to my NARS Sheer Glow lightens the consistency of the foundation and helps give it that radiant finish. 

To conceal I have been reaching for this creamy Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage recently as it can double up under the eyes as well as over blemishes and is small so fits into my makeup bag perfectly. 


For the cheeks I opt for this Bourjois Bronzing Primer which I absolutely love in the summer time, when blended it is the perfect healthy tanned colour. Although it can be used as a primer I use it as a normal bronzer. To add a spring feel I put a light coat of either the Topshop Cream Blush in Flush or the Revlon Cream Blush in Coral. Both are absolute favourites of mine as they blend so beautifully. 

To add that glow to the cheekbones I always reach for my Benefit High Beam as the bronzed tone to it helps to give that spring or summer glow. 


Keeping to the cream theme I use the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze. This is a cult product as an absolute favourite of mine. I will then go in with lashings of mascara. I love the L'Oreal Telescopic and the Bourjois One Second Volume, find out why here.  


I have been loving this Lord & Berry Lip Crayon in Cherry. It gives your look the perfect pop of bold colour and the creamy texture makes it the perfect hydrating lip. Read a full review here

What are your favourite cream products? 


  1. For some reason the idea of a cream blush kind of scares me - I imagine patchy blush and shudder, although I'm sure they're great as they get a lot of love! I like the Maybelline colour tattoos but I have to say I really really love the MAC paint pots - I use them religiously and find them to be such an easy option for all over shadow or as an eyeshadow base. Great post :) Xx

    1. You should definitely try the Topshop cream blushes as they apply and blend like a dream! I love the MAC Paint Pots too! x
