Summer Face of the Day ♥

I love Summer so much. I know a lot of people prefer wearing less make up in the summer or hot weather in general. Personally, i just switch to brighter colours. On one of the recent hot days, i spent the day with a friend in the sun and this is my face of make up! I went for a very natural face and lip look with a dramatic eye look which i love to do!

I feel like i need a primer in the hotter weather, to keep my make up in place, as we don't want it sliding off in places do we? (ew). I used my NYX Studio Primer in Anti-Redness to get my skintone less red and to keep my make up on for longer. I used my Rimmel Wake me up Foundation as it's so glowy and dewy. I don't like to set my foundation too much, i just use a really light hand with my MAC Mineralize Skin Natural. For blush i used my MUA Blush in Lolly. I think coral or peachy blushes look great in summer, i'm reaching for them more and more! For highlight, i kept it simple and subtle with my Soap and Glory Glow all out, which is great for a dewy finish that's subtle enough for the daytime. For bronzer, i used my NYC Sunny Bronzer so i didn't look quite so pastey! 

For eyes i wanted to go for a more dramatic look, with lots of bronze colours! First i used my Rimmel Exagerrate Eye primer. I used my MUA Undress me too palette. I used the shade Fiery all over my lid, with Obsessed in the outer third and crease and Corrupt in the outer V. For a browbone highlight, i used the shade Naked. For mascara, i had to use my Benefit They're Real, as it's just perfection. Next i used my Rimmel Scandal Eyes Kohl in Nude in my waterline to make my eyes look bigger and brighter. For eyeliner, i'm loving my Soap and Glory Supercat eyeliner pen. 

For lip, i wanted to go pretty simple as i'd gone for a dramatic eye look so used my new Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Pink Pop which is a gorgeous sheer hot pink. 

This is my Summer/Hot weather Face of the Day!
