I like to keep my makeup super simple with absolutely no fuss and normally a bright lip. In this post I chat about my every day summer makeup essentials that are key to me looking fresh and my complexion bright. For me the most important element is my skin as long as that looks fresh and dewy everything sort of falls into place. Of course you need a bright lip thrown in there too because that also ensures bright looking skin.

So here are my every day summer makeup essentials:

First up my base is really important for me and right now my go to is the Filorga Flash Nude Fluid which yay they have my shade in bronze. When it comes to summer I am normally super tanned so was so happy that out of the shades one actually works for me. If you didn’t catch my post on the foundation click here
to find out more. Its got a dewy finish and keeps my skin hydrated all day long. Even if my skin feels slightly dehydrated once I apply this its glowing just how I like it.

Bronzer is my number one beauty staple which I use all year round. Its great for warming up the complexion during winter or to enhance the sun kissed look during summer. I have fallen in love with the new Clarins Sunkissed limited edition bronzer so that is staying in my personal stash. The packaging is gorgeous and the bronzer just as gorgeous to enhance face by contouring and to really enhance my tan. Will be chatiing later this week about the summer collection so watch this space.

Another item I never leave home without is mascara am totally loving the Estee Lauder Sumptous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara. It really gives me volume lashes turning my non event lashes to gorgeous lashes. The mascara totally lifts and adds great volume and the applicator coats every lash top to bottom. A good mascara can totally make eyes look wide awake and help add that definition thats needed. Definitely a goodie to have in your makeup stash.

Last up I love a bight lip in summer because with a dewy complexion a bright matte lip looks amazing. Mac always has all the great shades for all year round. I am loving the Mac coral shade Tropic Tonic at the moment. It enhances my sun kissed glow and makes me appear fresher. Its definitely a hot colour for summer.
