During summer I get really lazy when it comes to doing my makeup. I think its something to do with the warm weather (or the slightly warm but still cold weather of North Scotland that we like to call “summer”). I don’t know, but anyway the products I use in my everyday makeup routine definitely shrinks to about six/seven products and the feel of any heavy makeup on my face just feels gross to me. I also tend to wear my glasses a lot more during the summer so that also changes the way I do my makeup. So today I thought I would share with you my everyday summer make up routine which is just a really simple, no makeup makeup look.
So the first thing I do is debate whether or not I want to wear makeup that day. Seriously though, most days in summer I don’t wear makeup at all, but some days I choose to. Today I am going to be talking about the days when I do want to wear makeup because if not this post would be beyond boring as it would already be finished and we don’t want that now do we?
So I actually tend to start with my eyebrows when I’m doing my makeup during the summer months because sometimes I will just stick to eyebrows and mascara so if I start with them, I can choose to add to it or just leave it as is, if that makes sense. When I fill in my brows I tend to use Soap and Glory’s archery pencil in dark chocolate. I use this shade because although my hair is naturally blonde, it is currently pink so I prefer to use this shade instead of the blonde shade because it means I can adjust my brow colour to colour of my hair. Then I use my trusty Urban Decay perversion mascara and apply that to both my top and bottom lashes, just so it can make me look a bit more awake and less attacked by hay fever.
If I choose to add more to my makeup I will apply a pressed setting powder to act as a foundation. If you read my previous post on how to keep your makeup sweat proof you will know that I like to switch out any cream or liquid products for powder to keep my face looking matte and to stop any makeup meltage. I like to use the Rimmel stay matte powder in the shade transparent as it has a very light amount of pigment in it, which believe it or not, is the perfect shade of powder for my pale pale face. I then lightly contour and pack as much highlighter as I possibly can without looking like I applied glitter nail varnish to my face. Sometimes if I feel like it, I will add lipstick but I tend to just stick to lip balm and that’s me done.
