Sheer Beauty Products For Summer.

sheer summer beauty products
During summer months not only does my wardrobe change from heavy knitwear to lighter sheer clothing, my beauty products change in the same way. I like to switch from heavy coverage to sheer, more lightweight beauty products which are more comfortable for those hot summer days. 

Base products have to be comfortable and super glowy for me during summer and the BareMinerals Complexion Rescue is one of my go-to's. Giving just enough coverage to even out my skin tone this tinted moisturiser makes my skin look so healthy and glowing. I love that it looks so natural, like I am not wearing any face makeup and as it also has skin care benefits, I feel like I am giving my skin a boost during hot weather. The complexion rescue is very hydrating and refreshing which is definitely a plus point when it is hot outside. 

I don't really suffer with dark under eye circles, and having sensitive eyes especially when it is bright outside I don't like to use heavy under eye products. I like to use the MAC Mineralize Concealer as it is really light weight and comfortable under the eyes. It is a great under eye concealer for everyday wear, it brightens my under eyes without looking or feeling too heavy. It is not the fullest coverage however it is enough for me and being so light, it lasts all day without settling in and fine lines or drying out. 

Brows are important to me especially when I am not wearing much makeup, I still like them to be defined and filled in however on a hot summer day a full strong brow is not really my thing. I like to use the Benefit Gimme Brow in the shade light/medium to run through my brows, as it fills them in just enough and keeps them in a defined shape all day. 

To add a pop of colour to my base and of course an added glow I love the Revlon Highlighting Palette. I use the shade Rose Glow as a sheer blush which looks really natural, it also gives a beautiful highlight to she cheeks which looks really pretty in the sunlight. 

You guys probably know by now especially from my tutorials that I love a matte liquid lip! During summer I do find myself switching to the opposite and my favourite summer lip product is the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector . This sheer gloss adds a pretty pop of colour and glossy finish which is super comfortable. My lips get very dry in the summer and this is so moisturising its a little more than just wearing a lip balm and all the shades are so pretty, I have a couple but my favourite of all is 02 Apricot Shimmer. 

Sheer beauty products are my most used over the summer, its all about comfort and light weight makeup which adds colour and still lets my natural features show through. What are your favourite beauty and makeup products for summer?
