cruelty free summer look with boots.

Cruelty Free Summer Make Up From Boots - Being Little. blog review flatlay make up skincare products
• this post is an advertised collaboration with Boots, but all thoughts are my own •

Summer is here (although I don't think anyone has told the weather) which means a change in beauty routines for many of us. More focus on the prep and protection, and a little lighter on the make up. We want glowing skin which is allowed to breathe, rather than being caked in make up - especially if we get another heatwave this year... I'm crossing my fingers and hoping we get one soon! 


I got to choose a few lovely things from Boots to help me switch up my skincare & beauty for summer. They have some beautiful stuff for this season, including some amazing glitter make up if you are heading to a festival! I decided to only select things that were cruelty free, as I'm trying to gradually change out all my beauty bits for less harmful things.


Cruelty Free Summer Make Up From Boots - Being Little. blog skincare No7 SPF, Ole Henriksen banana bright primer review

First up, a bit of prep and care. The No7 goodies were thrown in as an extra, but an SPF for your face is always needed and incredibly important. This face primer from Ole Henriksen is amazing - it smells lovely and gives your face a fresh glow. I'm still feeling like I'm not tanned enough to go completely bare faced in public, but I'm sure that once I am, a little bit of this will be all I need. 

I don't know about you, but I also like to wear a lighter scent in summer, and Boots have so much choice in perfume! This Sanctuary body spray is lovely - floral and sweet - and lasts really well. It really reminds me of my teenage years, before I discovered my usual perfume. I love a bit of nostalgia. 


Cruelty Free Summer Make Up From Boots - Being Little. Face foundation loose mineral foundation BareMinerals, ELF bronzer review

Next up, for the face I went for this loose mineral foundation from bareMinerals. I'm not sure I've ever used a powder foundation before, but I like how light this feels on the skin. It almost feels like you're wearing nothing at all! The powder bronzer works really well alongside this too - having the paler shades in there is really working for my skin right now, and I can see it being versatile well into the summer months when I eventually get a little more colour on my face.


Cruelty Free Summer Make Up From Boots - Being Little. eye products No7, Barry M palette review

For my eyes, I like to keep it pretty simple in the summer. A bit of definition in my eyebrows is always needed, as you can see from the photo below, they disappear a little without any make up at all! I usually love a brow gel, but this No7 eyebrow pencil gives a soft and natural look too. One end is the pencil, and the other end has a spoolie to brush and blend it in. 

Waterproof mascara is a must - whether you're jumping in a body of water, or just simply getting a little hot day to day, you want to know that you're not going to end up with smudgy mascara all around your eyes. This one is great because it also gives good length to your lashes!

A simple bit of eyeshadow to make your eyes pop is the perfect finishing touch. This Barry M palette of nudes is lovely - a couple of light, shimmery shades, and a bunch of different pinks and browns. I went for a mixture of a couple, along with a bit of the dark gold from the bronzer, which really complements blue eyes. The slight shimmer of the bronze Stay Perfect eyeliner makes it really lovely to use along the lower lash line. 


As you can see through the progression below, these few products give me that glowy, sun-kissed skin, without overdoing it. And that's what a summer make up look is all about for me! No fuss.


What's your go to for a summer look? What products are you excited to use this summer?

  1. Another great post; I recognise that E.L.F bronzer in my own collection, and really rate it for paler skin tones. Your blog photography is very artistic too. Do you have any tips for keeping photos so sharp? Hope you are having a lovely week! :-) xx
