Yves Rocher Summer Collection + Makeup Look

Yves Rocher Summer Makeup Look

There's no denying I am a creature of habit - once I find something I really enjoy, I will keep reaching for it on the daily. My comfort zone when it comes to makeup revolves around me sticking to neutral and warm tones, such as purples, browns and bronze shades. However, once summer hits, I am all for trying new colours and challenging myself to create something I have never done before. Yves Rocher has come out with an amazing summer collection (as they always do), and I have partnered with them to share some of my favourites from their recent launch. I also created a vibrant look that focuses on the eyes yet is still simple to achieve, requiring only a few products (using old favourites and new ones) in a few easy steps.

Yves Rocher Summer Collection Makeup Look

As a base, I used the Zéro Défaut Flawless Skin Foundation* ($28) in Beige 100 which I have been reaching for a lot recently since becoming a couple of shades darker (hello summer sun)! I had not used it for a while and forgot how much I loved it. Made with soy extract and botanical mineral pigments, the formula feels very light on the skin and it provides medium coverage that is easily buildable and does an excellent job at covering my imperfections and redness.

To set my liquid foundation, I dusted a bit of the Light & Luminous Loose Powder* ($30) in Beige on my T-zone. I generally prefer pressed setting powders, but something about this one makes my skin look extra nice. It contains rice extract and cornflower water to provide radiance and looks very natural on the skin and is basically undetectable so you do not have to worry about looking caky throughout the day.

I then reached for the Duo Bronzing Powder* ($30) in Medium Veil, the second lightest shade of four. I used the lighter shade to bronze my face using a big fluffy brush, and went in with a thinner brush to define the hollows of my cheeks and the sides of my nose. Made with Tiaré flower extract which is known for its soothing properties, the powders blend with ease. It also has a scent reminiscent of summer. The new packaging now contains 47% less plastic, and the pan is quite big so I see this product lasting me quite a long time.

To add a bit of colour to my cheeks, I reached for the Botanical Color Blush* ($20) in Pink Peach. Since I went for a more dramatic eye look, I wanted to keep the rest of my makeup more subtle to balance it out. Available in 10 shades, the formula is buildable yet pigmented and leaves a nice flush of colour. Enriched with rosehip oil, it applies smoothly and does not look powdery or chalky.

For the eyes, I wanted to play with bolder colours, and opted for three of their new Botanical Color Jumbos* ($20): Matte Yellow Mimosa, Matte Pink Nymphaea and Pearly Hazel Wood. I focused the yellow on the inner corner of my eye, a touch of pink near the center and hazel on the outer corner and slightly in the crease. What I love about these pencils is that they can be used as an eye shadow or liner. They can be a little stiff to work with at first, but once the product melts on contact with the skin, they glide on much more easily. Made with nourishing apricot oil and cedar wood from a sustainable forest, the 15 jumbos in this line come in either pearly of matte finishes.

I then created a wing using the Vertige Felt-tip Liner in Paradise Blue* ($17), a striking, electric shade. The tip is super easy to work with to create a sharp line as well as build on thickness. It is also ultra-pigmented and long lasting and does not feather.

Yves Rocher Radiant Lip and Cheek Crayon Coral

For the lips I went for a natural shade, the Radiant Lip and Cheek Crayon* ($13) in Coral. It has a sheer, slightly shimmery finish and is super hydrating, like a lip balm thanks to shea butter and mango butter. It comes in a twist tube so no need for sharpening!

Yves Rocher Solaire Peau Parfaite Chic Bohemian Summer Collection

I've also been upping my sun protection game and the Solaire Peau Parfaite SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion* ($32) is water and sweat resistant for 80 minutes. This one does not have a heavy scent and is non-greasy and non-comedogenic, as well as being free of perfume, colorants and parabens. I use it both on my face and body and despite being white it is easy to spread and blend in without it leaving a film behind.

The Chic & Bohemian Summer Collection includes three scented products: the Eau de Toilette* ($19), Perfumed Shower Gel* ($3.95) and Perfumed Hair Mist* ($12). The scent is fruity and fresh with notes of citrus and mint - definitely very summer appropriate! The Eau de Toilette, packaged in a glass bottle, is quite strong at first but dissipates after a few minutes. The Shower Gel contains cornflower water from organic farming and comes in a recycled plastic bottle, with 98% of ingredients being from natural origin, just like the hair mist which is of alcohol and botanical origin. You can use each individually or use all three on a given day to smell like summer from head to toe!
And there you have, my top picks from Yves Rocher's summer launches!

What do you think of the makeup look? Do you enjoy playing with more vibrant colours in the summer?

  46. I don't use much for makeup and when I do, I do not use much for my eyes. It isn't that I am afraid to, it is that I just don't feel comfortable doing it because I never really learned how.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I like your blue eyeliner! It reminds me of the runway show few years ago.

    ReplyDelete

  49. I've done a quick search on Yves Rocher, because I am always looking for high quality vegan products. I was disappointed to learn that they sell to mainland china and by law are required to test on animals.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I am a book geeky and not a master of beauty and fashion but more and more I am trying and stepping out of my comfort zone. I am like you, I like the neutrals and purple. That blue looks fantastic on you. It feels 90's to me and that is coming back apparently!
