Summer Makeup But Not Sweaty Makeup

We're getting the sun back and I can't wait to have a bit of chill-out and enjoy some sun. The weather always brings out my inspiration for clothes and makeup, but with the warm weather comes a lot of sweating that your makeup can't always handle. Each year I try new ways to make sure my makeup stays on, and I think I've managed to crack the code. I love really going for a bit of bronzer and focusing on the eyes but that doesn't mean my base can't still look good. I thought I'd share some of my tips and products I've been using to tackle that summer heat. 

First up is prepping your face, for me I normally try to wash and moisturise my face first thing in the morning when it gets hot.
