My Sunny Day Face!

Hey everyone, its Sunday again and again and its been quite sunny outside too :) I don't wear much makeup at the weekend or when its sunny so I thought I would do a combination of the two... my sunny day face! I like to keep it really natural and minimal and also quite glowy so I don't wear any powder. 

No7 Sun Cream for sunspot prone skin spf30
MAC Studio Sculpt foundation
MAC Mineralize Concealer
Revlon Cream Blusher in Pinched
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector

I started by applying the sun cream, I always use a sun cream pacifically for the face as I think its better. This one in particular helps prevent sun spots which I get and also sits really well under makeup. I then applied the foundation all over the face, I concentrated on the centre of the face where I wanted more coverage then blended out. I like this foundation as it is really dewy and I find it doesn't move around when I don't use powder. Next I used a little concealer to cover my dark circles. I then applied the liquid highlighter to areas that catch the sun. First the top of the cheekbones round to the temple and under the brows. One spot on the centre of the nose, the centre of the forehead and the cupids bow. This highlighter is amazing and I am using it most days to add a beautiful glow to my skin. Using cream products also looks a lot more natural than using powders, however if you have oily skin you can set with a powder. I finished with applying the cream blusher to the apples of the cheeks and blended it back and up into the highlighter.

*I like to use my finger to apply creams and liquids over foundation as I think the warmth of the fingers blends it better and it doesn't move the foundation around

Maybelline Mega Plush Mascara
Benefit Bow Zings
Benefit Gimme Brow

I added a little shape to my brows with the brow powder and then set them with the Gimme brow. I just touched the mascara to my eyelashes top and bottom just to make my eyes look a little bit wider.

*Wanted a really minimal look and im really liking bare eyes at the moment, I think it looks really nice with a nice shaped brow :) plus with hay fever starting the less on my eyes the better!

Bourjois 3D effet lip gloss in 52
I applied just the gloss all over the lip just to add a little sparkle, this one has a sheer orange tint to it which complements the blusher too!

So there it is, something really easy and natural I think it looks really pretty and its nice and comfortable to wear out in the sun too.
