FOTD : Easy Minimal Make-up For Summer

I don't know about you but all this hot weather we've been having lately has been playing havoc with my usual make-up routine!
Major heat + humidity + a full face of make-up never really ends well does it?
 So I've been cutting back on my products for the last few days and wearing a minimal look which has turned out to work out so much better for me and my skin in this heat.
No-one wants to get home from work looking like Olaf next to a flame do they?

So here's a quick and easy summer minimal make-up look!
Products used :
Nip + Fab CC Eye Fix*
Seventeen Skin Wow 3 Way Highlighter
Nip + Fab CC Cream*
Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil
Sleek Contour Kit
Natural Collection Lash Length Mascara
L'oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara
Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Lips - 5
And here's the overall finished look! This is really light, minimal look for me but it's perfect for a day at work in the heat or for popping out to the shops or to my parents house.

Obviously I used my usual brushes and my beloved eyelash curlers to help me achieve it but it really is so simple and a such a quick look to complete!
I love the lip shade so much, the perfect tiny pop of colour without being too OTT with the simple eyes!

What do you think? Do you change your make-up in the summer?
(FULL review on the new Nip + Fab products coming soon!)

    Great post!
