BEAUTY NOTE: BARE IT

This summer I've decided to ditch the foundation. I work in an office all day and in the end it's barely on my face anyway, as well as with the humid weather we've had I would rather be bare than risk it clogging up my pores. Don't get me wrong, I love makeup and admit there was a time I could never leave the house without it due to having terrible acne in my teens. But since those days are behind me (amen to that!) I'm putting more effort into highlighting my other features and letting my skin take a nice big breath!

So what do I do instead? I make sure my brows are nicely filled in and sweep on some liquid eyeliner, currently using Stilla which I'm really liking, and of course a coat or two of mascara. To keep the dewy natural look going a little bit of lip balm goes a long with with Grown Alchemy in a yummy watermelon flavour.
