Hello lovelies! I'm Megan from Thumbelina Lillie and today I'll be sharing what make-up I love using in these warmer months. A big thank you to Jade for asking me to guest post on her fabulous blog... Summer is definitely my favourite season; Not only because the sun brings a big smile to everyone's faces and I get the chance to wear some of my favourite pieces but because you can wear simple, easy and quick-to-apply make-up...

It's really important to wear some form of SPF on your face, especially in Summer! You need to protect your skin against the sun, even when it's not evident in the sky. For a base I use Benefit's 'You Rebel Lite'; An amazing tinted moisturiser with SPF 15 that gives a light coverage but still makes me feel comfortable. If you have oily skin or just get a tad oily in the summer like me, it's well worth using a powder to help reduce those oils. For this I use one of my favourite products, MAC's Mineralize Skinfinish Natural which also adds a tiny bit more coverage.

A waterproof mascara is ideal if you'll be splashing about in a pool, and if you are then I am well and truly jealous! I've recently found a love for Maybelline's 'The Falsies' as it creates great length and curl without giving you clumpy lashes. To add colour to your face I suggest using a cream blush as they give you a subtle and natural finish. I've been testing out some cream blushes and have loved using Revlon Photoready in 'Pinched', a beautiful coral shade. Because my face is simple, I love adding a bright lip. I know this may not be for everyone, but I feel my look is complete when wearing lipstick. MAC's 'Impassioned' has been my go-to recently due to it's vibrancy. 

Well there we have it folks! I'd love to know what make-up you wear in the Summer, so make sure you leave a comment below. Thanks again to Jade for this wonderful opportunity to guest post on her blog, I hope you enjoyed reading.

  1. I'm seeing MAC's Impassioned everywhere! I want it! It'll be perfect for summer, I agree.

  2. The revlon cream blush is gorgeous!

  3. I rarely makeup.
    Typically, summer makeup should pay attention to anything?
