Hello Peaches,

Well that is one weird title for a post.My imagination might be running a little wild, but lets be honest... every girl wants this figurative "SUMMER PROOF MAKEUP FACE".So after years and years of "research",trials and tests I have finally found a few things that really work in the heat of June and the humidity of Mon son.So,ladies the next time you go shopping be sure to take along this list of "Summer Arsenal" for some reference.


The day starts with washing our pretty faces.In summers a lot of responsibility relies on the shoulders nozzle of your face wash.A good face wash will not only clean your skin to pores,but prevent the dryness and rebound oiliness.My favorites are:

1)-Neutrogena Deep Clean Face wash

2)-Clean n Clear morning burst Face Wash

3)-Cetaphil Gentle Face Wash

I like to spritz my face with Rose water for extra hydration and a little matt look.It keep my skin fresh and prevents rebound oiliness.


1)-St  Ives collagen elastin moisturizer


2)-Clean and Clear moisturizer

3)-Boscia Oil Free Moisturizer


Laroch Posey Antihelios 60 Light Sunscreen Fluid

Clarins UV Plus Day SunScreen

Blue Lizard Sunblock

Spectraban Sunblock SPF 40


You can skip it if your sunscreen has it(like spectraban) or you can use Smashbox face Primer.Or Monistat Antichafing gel as Primer.


My best ever discovery to date has been...Mineral Hygienic mineral makeup.The makeup is vegan suitable,toxin free,bismuth oxychloride free and offers a 100% shade match with a money back gaurentee if thats not the case.It is so fine milled that it settles on skin and give a very natural finish.Keep a very light hand while using the minerals and use concealer for coverage.This is because if overdone it can look made up or powdery.

However,when I am wearing the minerals no one can ever guess if its makeup.There is a subtle glow and even-ness on my face which doesn't fade as the day passes.That fresh after shower look stays with me thanks to this brand.

Fresh applied.Note the glow and the exact match

After 7 hours at work

Another good brand If you find your match is Revlon Colorstay makeup with soft Flex for oily to combo skin.This foundation is un beatable when it comes to affordability with quality and longevity.It blurs pores so beautifully that its hard to believes I have large open pores.

Bourjois 123 Perfect has been a love for a long time for me.

Every oily can use it and they will love it.If you want a matte foundation and something to blur those pores go for this one.


You might not need it but a very faint pink with glow can of course do you loads of good.My personal favorite is:

ELF HD blushes in very very minuscule quantity can do great too.Light hand is the key.


Setting powder can do magic for you in seconds.I like three of these.

Mineral Hygeinics Sheer Matt 

Diana Of London Wet n dry Pan cake.(Especially if you have large pores).


Seriously girls...more people should know about this one.This spray locks and seals your makeup like really seal it.There are two on my favorite list.

Urban Decay De Slick

Skinidinivea No more Shine.

Use the spray and you will thank your stars for landing on my blog :)

So thats all that you need for your "Summer Face" girls.Ofcourse never underestimate the power of a good makeup cleanser like Nivea Cleansing milk or Bioderma Sensibio and ofcourse a good scrub.

If you have problems of excess oiliness you can try a thin mask of "Milk of Magnesia" twice weekly."Egg white and honey Mask" or tea tree oil.
