Switching Up For Summer

It's that time of the year! When suddenly the sun starts shining and you are faced with having to change up not only your wardrobe, but you face wardrobe as well. Suddenly foundation feels too heavy on your skin and you want a natural, bare-faced glow to let the sun shine through to give you a natural bit of colour. I love this time of the year and being able to wear a BB cream instead of a foundation. Therefore, I thought I would share with you my top 3 BB creams which will let you transition into summer beautifully! 

First up is Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream. Heralded as an '8-in-1 Skin Perfector', it is one of my favourite products for the summer months. This BB cream is really light and gives just a little bit of coverage to make it look like you aren’t wearing anything at all. This is great for holidays and the summer months when your skin is already looking great and blemish-free from the sun. It gives the face a really flawless glow and is the perfect shade for me. It also contains SPF 30 so you don't really need to wear anything else with it. I love this stuff and I am currently on my second bottle and will continue to repurchase this again and again. 
Next is this beauty from Kiehls. Although it is called a BB cream, I would say it is more of a foundation as it is slightly thicker than BB creams I would normally use. The texture is really light yet luxurious and smoothes onto the skin perfectly. I just apply with my fingers as I would any other foundation/BB cream, and this seems to work perfectly. The cream does a great job of covering up blemishes and imperfections and giving my skin a really healthy glow. It is thick enough to cover yet light enough to look really natural and like you are not wearing much make-up. It is the perfect base for concealer and powder, plus it has SPF 50 in it! At £23.50, it is slightly pricey if you're on a budget but definitely worth it for a flawless complexion that is going to do your skin some good! I would highly recommend.
Finally comes the Garnier Miracle SkinProtector BB Cream. Again, this has quite a thick consistently and I would say verging on a foundation. It is quite thick to apply however it then sinks into the skin and adapts to your skin colour for a really natural finish. I would wear this just by itself on holiday with no need for extra concealer or powder. However, make sure you apply a moisturiser with SPF underneath this as it doesn’t contain any! 
Have you tried any of these? How do you switch up your make up routine for summer?
