With the very hot weather we have been having recently here in the UK my makeup wearing has been kept to a minimum. Any heavy makeup would just melt off of my face, which is never a good look, so my makeup has to be lightweight and very simple. With that in mind I thought that today I could tell you about some of my favourite products to wear if I really feel like wearing makeup on a hot summers day.
In this summer weather foundation and even tinted moisturisers can be too heavy so I have liked to just conceal under my eyes and then move onto the rest of my makeup. For concealer I have been using the No7 Instant Radiance Under Eye Concealer as it is really lightweight and doesn't crease under my eyes or melt off of my face. Powder is very important for me in this weather as I don't want to look like a greasy mess, however I also don't want to look completely matte. The perfect powder for this is the Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder as it gets rid of any oil without flattening your skin and making it appear really matte. I also like to add a bit of blush and bronzer just to make my complexion appear more healthy. I really like using the NARS Bronzing Powder in Laguna and the Bourjois Cream Blush in Rose Tender.
For eyes I love using cream products in the summer months and two of my favourites are the Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner in Birthday Suit and the By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Misty Rock. Both of these shades are perfect for both day and night and can be worn alone or with each other to create a gorgeous shimmery look. I don't have a waterproof mascara at the moment so any suggestions would be very useful.
For brows I am still following my usually routine but if I am having a very minimal makeup day then the Maybelline Brow Drama as it adds a little bit of colour to the brows and sets them in place.
Finally for lips, two of my favourites are the Bourjois Colour Boost in Peach on the Beach and the Maybelline Colour Sensational Shine Gloss in Glorious Grapefruit. Both peachy pinks and both glossy so perfect for the warmer weather.
