Default Repair outdoor light fixture

My light has separate from the brick facing. What do I use to reveal it, and how do I get it to sit flush. The fixture was installed when the house was built 7 years ago. It is a brick front and everything is recessed.

If the light was installed with a round "light box" inside the wall then the screws have pulled loose from it. You can try re-tightening the screws (usually only two). Sometimes, these screws get stripped if the light gets hit or bashed. In that case, you might need to get a slightly thicker screw (not necessarily longer).

Let us know how things went.
