For the past 3 weeks I’ve been in the south of France and I was really restrained when it came to choosing the make up I would take. I brought so many books (plus all of the stuff I needed for blogging) that my suitcase space was seriously limited. So here are my summer make up staples – the products I’ve worn pretty much every day and have loved.

If you follow my blog you will know that I am a huge fan of full coverage make up. My rosacea redness makes me very self-conscious and I feel more like myself when I know I can apply a full face of make up. But I know that not everyone can (or wants to) wear a lot of make up. So I have pulled together the products that would work as a rosacea cover ups for men and those who prefer a lighter look.

When I was given the new La Roche Posay Effaclar BB Blur* at an event I thought it sounded interesting but I was put off by the ‘BB’ aspect. I’m a huge fan of Japanese BB creams but the UK versions are a totally different beast: light coverage, dewy and nowhere near suitable for covering my rosacea redness. However, I am happy to say I was very wrong about this little tube of magic.
