The 'Barely There'

During the summer (not that we are having much one in the UK!) in the day time I like to keep my makeup very simple and focus on a very natural look, as I find that as it starts to get a bit hotter, I like to let my skin breath and prefer to not have a full face of makeup melting in the heat, especially when at the beach.

Although I wish I was, I am not the type of person that is confident enough to not wear any makeup at all, so over the years I have come up with a 'barely there' look, using enough makeup to conceal any skin concerns, but still keeping it very natural.

Here's the look I go for

Ignore the wonky side of my face, I took this photo with my iphone and I am not the steadiest of people, giving me a blurred side to my face ha!

I concentrate on making my skin look healthy and cover any blemishes or redness using;

Foundation- Clinique Super Balanced Makeup 'Beige Chiffon'
Concealer- Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection 'Medium' & MAC Studio Finish NC20
Powder- Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder 'Transparent'

Applied using;
Real Techniques Stippling Brush
ELF Powder Brush

I then fill in any sparse areas of my eyebrows, which I find really helps to frame my face using;

HD Brows Palette 'BombShell' using 'Medium Blonde & Ash Blonde' (I find these colours mixed are a perfect colour for my brows, even being a brunette!)

Applied Using;
Royal and Langnickel Eyebrow Brush C490

I then curl my eye lashes, and add the slightest coat of mascara just to darken my lashes;

Eyelash Curlers- Primark
Mascara- Maybelline The Falsies Waterproof 'Black'

I then usually put on a lipbalm, in this case, Creme Brule Vaseline, and I am good to go!

Do you have a 'barely there' go to look for summer? Or do you prefer to wear lots of colour?
