My Everyday Summer Makeup Routine!

It has been really sunny here in the UK over the last couple of weeks and on hot days I don't really like to wear much makeup. I have been using this routine on really hot days as I find it to be really comfortable and long lasting. I am not into much coverage, I just like my skin to look a little more even and brighter and this makeup just makes me look a lot better then if I wasn't wearing anything at all. Its very simple and glowy and super quick too.

First off I take the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue, on a Real Techniques Buffing Brush and buff it in all over the face. I will be doing a review on this in week or so. You want to use this method to really work it into the skin as it lasts a lot longer and looks more natural. Next I use the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer under the eyes and anywhere else that needs some extra cover. This is a perfect concealer for hot days as it is really long lasting but light weight at the same time. I only like to use a little bit of powder just in the T-zone as I have very dry skin. For this I use the Rimmel Clear Complexion Translucent Powder

For bronzer I love to use the Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel. This is the most beautiful cream bronzer and looks so natural, just like you have spent a day by the pool. For Blusher I use a little bit of the Revlon Cream Blusher in Pinched, just to add a little pop of colour. I use the same Real Techniques Buffing Brush to apply the cream products too as its quicker and it blends the products together nicely. I finish the face with a little bit of MAC Mineralize skinfinish in Soft and Gentle. 

For the eyes I don't wear much at all as they become very sensitive in the sun. I will go through my brows with the Benefit Gimme Brow, then apply only a tiny amount of Maybelline The Falsies mascara just to the tips of the lashes. Then to finish I mix and match with any lip gloss I happen to pick up. 

So that is my summer day makeup routine, for me this lasts all day and I don't have to worry about maintaining it or touching up either. I hope you like it it and please share yours too!

  3. For those hot, summer days it's best to go with a lighter makeup routine and we love your picks! Tinted creams are great to give you a little coverage without worrying about it running off in the heat, thanks for sharing!
