summer makeup tips and tricks tuesday | Bronzed glowy look

When I think of summer makeup I think of minimal makeup with a glowly flawless finish, especially if its a hot day because you dont want your makeup melting down your face, because I am sure that isn't a great look, so this is my summer makeup tips to ensure that your makeup is looking fresh throughout the day

The first thing is ensuring that you have a good primer, this could make the difference of your makeup staying in place much longer, it can also help your makeup apply smoothly and look flawless.

When it comes to summer think less is more and use lighter makeup on your face, for example ditch the full coverage foundation and opt for a lightweight BB cream or tinted moisturiser with spf, because that will not only protect your skin from the sun, but it also allows your skin to breathe which means that it is less likely to look flakey or patchy.

Remember in the summer you want a natural glow not shine, as this is going to make you look hot and flustered. To overcome the disco ball look carry around blotting papers, as they are easy to travel with, affordable and don't add any extra layers which could look cakey, I would also recommend some sort of ... like the hourglass ambient light powder which I feel are quite expensive but they makeup your skin glow. another similar products is the makeup revolution radiant light palette.

I am not a big fan of waterproof mascara probably because I am to lazy to spend time scrubbing my eyes to get it off, however during the summer waterproof mascara is your best friend, as this will make your mascara last much longer and not smudge down your face.

bronzer is a must have during the warmer summer months, especially bronzer with shimmer so that it adds a natural glow to the face. I would recommend a warm bronzer for summer but not to go overboard and just add to the high points of your face when the sun naturally hits such as forehead, cheekbones and chin, make sure not to cover your whole face in bronzer as this is going to make you look like an umpa lumpa which isn't an attractive look.
