Barely There Summer Heatwave Make Up

So the summer holidays are in full swing and we’re having a massive heat wave here in the UK. I wouldn’t often say this but I honestly think it’s too hot to wear make up. For me, with my skin type it is anyway. There’s a fine line between a dewy glow and a full on sweaty, hot mess. There’s nothing wrong with going bare faced, but it’s just not my style unless I’m really desperate or short of time, (or on a tropical holiday, but that’s not likely to happen any time soon.)

These are the products I’ve been using to make myself look presentable.

Garnier Miracle Cream SPF 20. This is a really nice product and a great multi tasker. It’s anti aging, (has retinol and SPF 20), and also has a little bit of coverage. It just makes me look more alive very quickly. You can order it here.

Essence make me brow Eyebrow Mascara. I use this to just quickly give me some form of eyebrow, ha ha. You can get it from Wilko or from Amazon.

Revolution Baked Bronzer .I’m not very tanned on my face so I use a bronzer to make me look less pale. I use this one at the moment.

Sleek Solstice Highlighter Palette. Last but not least, who can resist a quick sweep of highlighter? I use this at the moment, you can order it here.

Enjoy the heat and stay safe. Let’s face it, it’s not going to last long! MC x
