Summer Makeup

BB Creams, CC creams, foundations the list goes on, so many face products available on the market. As of recent i have been using my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation, but since summer is coming, I switched back to my favourite BB cream.

As for bb creams my favourite one would have to be the Holika Holika Aqua Petit BB Cream. It is very light weight making it best to wear in the hotter months, it's also very long lasting on my skin and gives a matte finish, therefore a light dust of powder is enough to set the BB cream.

Unfortunately the BB Cream only comes in 2 shades, which are both very light. I hope that in the future they expand their shade range. (I use shade 1, i believe that shade 2 is pink toned)

To apply the BB cream there are many ways, the BB cream itself comes with a sponge, but I prefer using my fingers or a brush.

The brush I use is the Ecotools Skin Perfecting Brush* – especially made for BB and CC cream application.

Ecotools - Each brush is contoured for smooth and flawless application, the dual fibre brush are made with soft, cruelty-free bristles, recycled aluminum ferrules and sleek bamboo handles.

As for the brush, the angled edge brush is ideal for precise coverage around the nose and under eye areas, i found that application was a breeze since the smaller brush made blending much more easier in between hard to reach areas such as the nose, round the mouth and eye area. Also the packaging is super pretty. 

Also i just wanted to show you guys something i recently discovered. It's the Ecotools Pure Complexion Facial Sponge*.  Firstly in the packaging there is a hard dry sponge, the sponge is used to remove impurities such as dirt, oil and makeup which leaves the skin smooth and refreshed. When i soaked the sponge in water i was super amazed as to how soft the sponge was. As i used the sponge to gently wash my face, i found it to be quite relaxing on the skin. I would highly recommend everyone to check this sponge out. 

Do you change your foundation in the hotter months?

      Thanks for reading

  2. I keep changing my foundation depending on the season. In colder seasons I go for high coverage ones but in hotter seasons I try to stay away from foundation and use bb creams. I haven't heard this brand before, it is shame that they only have 2 shades available. I haven't tried the sponge from ecotools, I will check it out! x

  3. Eco Tools Brushes are amazing, I love them! So beautiful to use on the skin.
