With the arrival of summer, it’s the best time to ditch the heavy make-up you’ve been using and update your beauty routine. Think lightweight products, but not forgetting the all-important sunscreen. A nude lip is also a must as well as some waterproof mascara. Read on to find out what must-have products will be in my summer make up bag this year.

Facial Sunscreen

With the sun intermittently appearing day in, day out, it’s very important not to forget the sunscreen. I currently use the Antipodes Immortal SPF15 Face & Body Moisturiser daily and it's so moisturising, yet lightweight, making it perfect for the summer.

Matte Foundation

When the weather gets warmer, humidity levels rise also. A long-wear, matte foundation will be your best friend in these situations and I have the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Stick Foundation all packed and ready to go always.

Long Wear Powder

Sometimes, face mists just don’t cut the mustard and in order to keep your make up in place all day, invest in a good powder for those hot, hot days to give your skin a more natural look without being cakey. I absolutely love the Becca Cosmetics Multi Tasking Perfecting Powder which always gives my skin a soft and smooth finish.

Waterproof Mascara

A waterproof mascara is much needed during the hot weather because it ensures that you won’t go home with panda eyes at the end of the day. An all-important holiday essential also, and my NYX Doll Eye Waterproof Mascara never disappoints.

Nude Lipstick

A nude colour never fails for a summer make up look and goes with almost all outfits during the summer time. It’s easy to wear and doesn’t look too out of place when it comes off either. My current go-to is a shade called Raw Sugar from the Estee Lauder Pure Color Love Lipstick range.

    Nice makeup. Looks very fresh! When it is sunny I like to keep a glossy makeup stick in my handbag. I’m currently loving the Isadora Glossy Glow Stick in Dewy Champagne 🙂

    I like your invisible makeup. Are you deliberately not using rouge?
