With a change in season comes an urge to refresh your look. In winter I love bold lips and eyes and a more matte makeup finish, but in summer I want to look fresh, dewy and lightweight. With a cleaner complexion I lean towards a soft feminine cheek and can't go past a creme blush to add colour with a dewy finish. When I worked for MAC Cosmetics I was forever preaching the benefits of creme over powder, no matter what your age it always looks great.

If you haven't made the jump to creme/cream yet here are some simple tips to get you on the way. Sometimes keeping it simple and using your fingers can be the easiest, but I've also included some of my favourite brushes to shop below if you prefer to keep it clean:) 


Now that you've got the tips these are some of my favourite products to get you on your way.
