SUMMER MAKEUP ROUTINE

Summer time here in Hong Kong is quite unbearable as it gets  pretty hot and humid. The minute you step out your face starts to sweat and gets very sticky. So during the summer I tend to use lighter bases and switch to powder based foundations. If not the minute I step out my makeup starts melting and becomes such a mess, with a powder base it lasts much longer. Today I'm going to share my updated makeup routine that I tend to wear most of the time during summer. Its slightly different to my Everyday Makeup Routine.

During winter I tend to use The Body Shop BB Cream and the Maybelline BB Cream as my base (in the night I use a foundation) but in the summer I prefer pressed powders and my go are the MAC Studio Fix and MAC Studio careblend. Powder foundations last so much better on my oily skin in summer, foundations tends to melt much faster on me. I use concealer and my go to is the NYX HD Photogenic Concealer, has very good coverage. It lasts all day when set with a powder and never gets patchy. 

My mascara has been the Maybelline Hyper Curl at the moment. If I do a cat eye I use the Kate Tokyo Pen Liner, its easy to use and you can draw a very fine line close to the lash line. When it comes to lining the water line I always reach for the Clio Gel Liner, it lasts all day and doesn't smudge. I try to never leave the house without doing my eyebrows and I have been using my VDL brow pencil as its the perfect colour and the pencil lasts all day long.

My blusher depends on my mood but my go it MAC Love Thing as its very pigmented and perfect for the day time as well. As for the lips I have been using a variety sticking mostly to dark colours. I wear dark lips even in the summer. My favourite are my MAC Lipsticks as they last long and don't dry my lips out.

So there goes my everyday makeup look, I know its a bit boring and very simple but that's exactly how I like it. Its easy to do and doesn't take a lot of time as so when I have to get ready in the morning I don't need to get up earlier than I have to. What is your go to look that you use everyday?
