Summer Makeup Lovin'

If I'm being honest I'm totally not one for wearing a full on face of makeup in summer just because it's to bloody hot (especially with this mini heatwave we seem to be having recently... I mean the last thing I want to be doing is sitting in front of a mirror for god knows how long for it to just drip off or go patchy anyway!) Recently I've been loving this mix of products because all in all it literally takes 10 minutes max to put on my face and that I bloomin love.
Starting with the L'Oreal Paris Cushion Foundation I use a real techniques buffing brush and just do a light layer of this all over making sure to take it down my neck. This foundation is such a light coverage that it might not be for everyone but for me its just enough. It still hides any redness I have but doesn't look heavy or cakey. The best bit though is even if gets patchy or comes off in the hot weather, its so easy to apply you can just throw it in your bag and retouch it throughout the day without stressing to much.
I then go in with a quick and easy bronzer. I either reach for my trusty Charlotte Tilbury Bronze & Glow or my Benefit Hoola. I use my Real Techniques Bold Metal 301 brush with either product if I want a quick contour but for an all over bronze I'll use my Bobbi Brown Face Blender Brush which makes it soooo unbelievably easy.
I then go in with highlighter, if I'm using my Bronze & Glow I'll stick to the highlighter in that but to go my with Hoola I use the theBalm Mary Lou Manizer Luminizer to add a little glow on my cheekbones and down my nose. You HAVE to have some sort of highlight going on in summer whether its subtle or bold you know!?
For eyes if I'm being really lazy most days I just slap on some mascara (normally my new fave Maybelline Big Shot) and I'm good to go but if I do have a spare few minutes I use my Charlotte Tilbury Eyes To Mesmerise in 'Bette' for a quick wash of golden shimmer. I love these cream shadows because no matter how hot it gets, they last all day and don't crease at all! I then sometimes just blend it out with a shade in my Zoeva Matte palette but its not essential.
