Lunchtime live -Summer Makeup Inspiration Guide

Fresh summer inspo!

Today I am taking you through a quick summer routine using our Summer Packs. All these beautiful products have been trialled and tested and are very carefully curated to give us women, safe and reliable products for our skin. We all love that summer, dewy and glowing look just use these these tips and tricks - anyone can easily create this.

Hi! I'm Amanda Ramsay @amandaramsaymakeup your over 40s makeup expert and I'm going to give you my step-by-step guide of Summer Makeup Inspiration! If you missed the video tutorial, you can watch now

Firstly I am using the Summer BB Pack. This pack includes the Ere Perez Moringa All Beauty Cream, Mii Cosmetics Liquid Luminizer, La Mav BB cream and the Makeup Weapon Dome Brush. In short - everything you need for a dewy base that feels fresh, and weightless!

Mix your certified organic mineral and vitamin packed BB cream, with a lightweight luminous delicious moisturiser Ere Perez Moringa All-beauty Cream and a Luminous Liquid Luminiser together on the back of your hand using a densley packed vegan bristle foundation brush. Play around with how much you need of each, depending on the finish you're going for. More luminsier equals more glow. more moisturiser equals a tinted moisturiser, barely-there finish. Buff into your skin using the brush right down the neckline and behind and around the ears.

This trio is going to give you a nice, fresh, luminous Summer look whilst evening out your skin tone for a barely there look that you can build to be a bit more glam.

La Mav BB Cream is packed with Hyaluronic Acid, Kakadu Plum (vitamin C) so it's a beautiful extension to your skincare. Giving you excellent coverage yet feels weightless. It's certified organic.


In this cute lil pack you get 2 foolproof eye shadow crayons and a soft pointed blending brush to help in application and blending of the eye crayons + a FREE mini beauty tea (while stocks last)!

Thankyou Mii Cosmetics for these life changing Eye Crayons!! They are an absolute game changer as they are a long wear eyeshadow that sets. No need to prime, just apply straight to the lid and get instant colour! With a variety of colours, you can create so many different looks from neutral/daytime to the more dramatic. Simply combine the 2 colours – using the lighter colour washed all over your eyelid, and the darker eyeshadow on the outer corner of eye. Blend a little darker shadow under your lower lash line too with the detailing brush.

These incredible longwear eyeshadows don't move, they stay put. Great for watery eyes as they set so it won’t smudge.

The great thing about this pack is that it’s so easy to gift. (Or just keep for yourself!) All you need to know is the recipients eye colour and skin tone. AND the Festive Eyes Kit comes with a FREE La Mav Organics Herbal Beauty tea (while stocks last)!


Lashes and brows

Next we need to define the eyelashes and brows. Using an eyelash curler will help to open up the eye. I love the Makeup Weapons Lash Curler.

Then load your lashes with mascara. This Inika mascara is 100% natural and took a lot of trialling to find. This one is great for sensitive eyes and is buildable for more dramatic looks. It also assists in the growth of your lashes which an extra bonus too!

Beautifying Brow Wand

Fill in your brows – fill in those little gaps with mii cosmetics beautifying brow wand. This is an easy to use product to fine tune the brows and make them appear fuller and fluffy.


In this pack you get a Peachy lip liner from Ragesim Beauty and a Limited Edition Nude Coral Blush Lipgloss shade. These are limited edition so be sure to get in quick for these little beauties! Plus you get a FREE mini Beauty tea too (while stocks last).

Always prep your lips with lip balm. I love Clemence Ultimate Lips. Make sure you sharpen your lip liner before use. You can use this liner with other shades of Lipstick as well but the peachy tone of the gloss works perfectly together. It’s probably suited best to blondes’ and silver haired girls. Think Summer 60’s kinda vibe combo.

This duo leaves you with a velvety not sticky feel and is genuinely hydrating.


Finishing Touches

Well we are almost there but we all need a little colour on those cheeks to help create some contrast. I love Healthy Carrot Pot from Ere Perez. This product castor oil based and 100% natural has a natural pigment. Adding a little touch of that on the cheek bones is the finishing touch of this easy peasy summer look!

One More Thing – SUNSCREEN

Such an important step in our makeup routine which we ALL need to be vigilant in following. I have found a great product Naked Sundays Glow Finish. You simply spray it over your face after you pop your makeup on, its 50+ last for 2 hours and soooo easy to use. No excuses! And it even gives you hydration and a glow too!

Aus made and a lady start up, get on it girls!

So what do you think, Reckon you can do that one? I know you can! You can get a fancy looking makeup with minimal products all whilst hydrating and caring for your skin. This versatile selection of products are perfect for yourself or easy to choose for loved one for that special Chrissy gift.

Tune in next week’s lunchtime live as we have a very special guest! Bridget Carmody from Clemence Organics will be joining me to chat all things body!
