Summer Makeup Inspiration: Bright, Fresh and Dewy

I feel like summer is the perfect time when you can be super lazy with your makeup routine and look really good doing it. There is something about the warmer and brighter weather that gives way to simplicity and freshness, I am a big fan. For me, summer makeup is all about light fresh dewy base, bold and bright lips with some colour on the eyes (but not together). 

Simplifying your makeup routine doesn't have to mean that your makeup looks should be boring, I really like adding hints of bright colours. Something like the blue eyeliner (which I am really liking at the moment) is perfect for adding some colour to your look without overdoing it. 

I love, actually borderline obsessed with dewy, highlighter all year around but there is something really pretty about super dewy skin in the summer. A lot of the runway looks were all about the glow, and everything else was kept pretty simple, you know I am definitely going to be piling on the highlighter (slight exaggeration).

What changes do you make to your summer makeup routine?

P.S My tips for getting things done, without leaving it for to long. 



  1. I love changing my lipsticks for lighter more coral shades in the summer! x

  2. Totally with you! I love dewy skin, but I always feel like I look like I am just sweating (which let's be real, I am). And the bright lips are soooo good with a basically nude face!

    Love this post! not sure how i feel about dewy make up though.


  6. So much love for this post but especially that first picture... how gorgeous are the model's glowy peachy skin? Love! :)


  7. I love piling on my makeup but the hot weather forces me to cut back. I still love a soft brown smokey eye and a sheer lip balm :D

  8. Dewy skin with a healthy glow is perfect for summer and my favourite kind of bases are definitely bb/cc creams as well as liquid highlighters x
