Hello, Summer!

Hope you are enjoying the longest day of the year.  Finally, the season we dreamed of during the dark and cold days of winter is with us.  It’s time to take full advantage of the Vitamin D and warm temps.
Less always seems to be more in summer, which is why this is the perfect season to lighten up your makeup, opting for a tinted moisturiser instead of foundation, so you don’t find yourself melting during the day.  My summer routine pares down to a touch of concealer and of course, bronzer. With tinted lashes, I often skip the mascara.  

Help! I'm melting!!!

With summer comes the expectation of lots of sunshine and hot, humid days.  At least in the summer that I know best.  However, when I started to write this piece, I had just been caught in a hailstorm.  In July. 

While I usually love applying “my face”, in warmer times, it can be hard to work up motivation for a full face of make-up.  Particularly as I find that foundation and powder can melt in the heat, leaving my skin looking patchy, which is not exactly the look I’m going for.  Often, my choice is simply moisturiser and sunscreen, but on the days when I don’t want to be bare faced, I have found a reliable combination of products to keep me covered and cool.
