Summer Makeup Shakeup

whenever summer rolls around here, it rolls aound with a bang. all of the suddens its 27 degrees, humid and sticky and i’m always in shock. i’m not the biggest summer person and because it just gets so humid here and i feel like i’m melting away, i always wish fro slightly cooler days. odd, i know. whenever seasons change i like to switch up my makeup routine just slightly so it fits in perfectly with the climate i’m dealing with. since its june already ( i know right ) i thought it would be nice to share my summer makeup with you. maybe you can find some pieces you’d like to add into your daily makeup routine or you might have some products i might love. so lets get stated:

don’t let it melt
i don’t know about you but i can’t deal with humid weather and a full face of makeup. it just makes me so mad and i, generally, am not very good with heat. so recently i started using a primer and it made such a difference. i use one from the ordinary and it makes my makeup go on so much smoother and it lasts longer. the ordinary is my favourite skincare brand which is why i trusted them with the primer as well. its so light and feels great. in the summer, i like to go for a lighter base because theres nothing worse than feeling hot with a full face on. the nars pure radiant tinted moisturizer is perfect for that. it gives a very light skin-like finish and makes me look very healthy and radiant and i love it. 
summe means bronzer for me so i can fake a tan because i don’t tan really easily which is why i’m usually still very pale in summer. a bit of bronzer on my cheeks, nose and forehead does the trick and i love the sleek blush in suede for that. its the perfect not too warm or red toned bronze shade and its so affordable too. with a good bronze goes and good glow. recently, i have been going for liquid illuminators as i feel like they can be built up easier and won’t make me look like a disco ball. the nars liquid illuminator in copacabana is perfect for that. its a lovely pink toned shade and i adore it.
for eyes i like to keep it simple with the new l’oréal miss baby roll mascara. it was a very weird twisted wand but its so good. no clumpey spirdery lashes but length and volume for days. its so good. my lipstick has stayed the same since the day i got it. charlotte tilburys pillow talk. it just is the perfect nude and i will probably never get tired of it. 
lately i have really been loving perfumes and scents and would love to expand my perfume collection. my summer favourite has to be a version of the very classic dolce & gabbana light blue. its the sunset in salina edition and it is just as fresh and airy as the original but with hints of orange and a it warmer. i just adore it.
so here we are, my summer makeup shakeup. what is your favourite product to use in summer? please let me know.
