What's in my everyday summer makeup bag

Hello lovely people, so I thought today I would share with you the makeup I've been wearing on a day to day basis over the summer. To be honest it is basically my base routine that you can then add to. So here goes...

To start with I use Maybelline dream pure BB cream. As it is the summer I hate using anything too heavy on my skin so I love this BB cream as it gives a light coverage that you can build on it. I think this BB cream is a must have for summer. After that I will apply Rimmel Match Perfection 2-in-1 concealer and highlighter, under my eyes and anywhere I want to highlight basically. On blemishes I use the natural collection cover up stick. At the moment I have it in fair, which is a bit light for my skin but to be honest I haven't had many blemishes this summer. Then to set all of that I will use the Rimmel Stay matte powder in transparent with my No7 face brush. I will then quickly fill in my brows using Maybelline Master shape in shade Dark Blonde.

 On my eyes I don't tend to use much especially for a day to day look so I just add a bit of Maybelline Falsies volume express mascara. For the summer I purchased the waterproof one however normally I would just use the normal version. Then to finish off the look I would normally apply the Palmer's Moisturizing Lip Balm which is great and has vitamin E in and an SPF of 15, however I recently purchased some Maybelline Baby lips and am using the peach kiss one as it gives a really nice subtle colour to the lips, which is perfect for everyday.
This is the finished look! As I said before it is really minimal makeup, so may not be to everyone's taste, however it is definitely a look you can build on if you want to.

I hope you enjoyed this and let me know what you think.
