I do not fair well in heat; raise the temperature by one or two degrees and I start to suffer. So during summer, if I can be convinced to put make-up on at all, it's as light as I can possibly apply it. Most days I will stick with the Shu Uemura BB Perfector with a little NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, mattified with MAC Blot Powder, maybe a sweep of eye liner and mascara.. and that's it.

For occasions that call for a little more effort, I've been wearing a smokey eye using the lightest shade from the Oriflame Eyebrow Kit. It is way too light for my brows anyway and its tawny colour works beautifully as an eye shadow. I add a glow to my cheekbones with Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight or a little colour with Tarte Dollface. A good lip balm in summer is a must but when I reach for other lip products its almost always Christian Dior Lip Glow (of course) or Korres Mango Lip Butter, both of which provide natural, summery flushes of colour.
