Everyday Summer Makeup

We have had some brilliant weather recently and it is safe to say I am loving it! In the warmer weather ideally I would prefer to wear no makeup at all but my skin has not been kind to me recently so I have been wearing some light makeup.  This is my current, everyday makeup.

I cannot use most suncreams on my face as they give me a nasty reaction so I have to rely on SPF in my makeup.  The Bourjois CC cream is just perfect for this time of year, its light and contains SPF 15.  This is lower than I would like for my face but at the moment I have not found a higher SPF that my face will tolerate so it will do for now.

My concealer, yes you guessed it, still the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer in Fair.  If it’s not broken why fix it?! As I don’t tan, the shade fair suits me all year round. I lightly set with the Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder before adding some of the Soap and Glory Solar Powder Bronzer to lightly contour and bronze.  I also run this over my lid and into the crease for a little bit of colour and definition.  My blush of choice is Havana by Benefit.  This is a slightly more peachy shade with a gentle shimmer.  I love this shade for summer as it looks beautiful when the sun hits.  I have topped up the glow with the Balm Mary Lou Manizer on my cheek bones and brow bones.

For my brows I have been using the Milani Brow Fit in Light.  This is an oldie but a goodie.  I am in need of a new brow product. I want to try some of the Benefit brow products, have you?   Which one would you recommend?  I keep looking at them but cannot decide.  I have been setting my brows with the NYX Brow Mascara but this too is running out.

My Mascara of choice is still the Tanya Burr Selfielash mascara.  Its a nice natural everyday mascara and also holds up well in the heat. For my lips I prefer to just apply some lip balm.  The one that is always in my handbag is this one my Pixi in a nude shade.

Have you been enjoying the hot weather?
