With the ar­rival of sum­mer and the ther­mome­ter set to rise it can be a bat­tle to keep your make-up look­ing fresh.

But never fear — I have you cov­ered with some tips to help keep you look­ing great, even when the weather is work­ing against you.

PRIMER

This light­weight layer acts as a base to help foun­da­tion ap­ply smoother and hold make-up in place for longer.

LESS IS MORE

Dur­ing sum­mer avoid heavy foun­da­tion as they tend to crease and look cakey. In­stead, opt for a tinted mois­turis­ers and con­cealer where needed.

EX­PER­I­MENT WITH COLOUR

Sum­mer is a great time to ex­plore the bolder colours of your make-up pal­ettes. Vi­brant colours can help brighten a face and cre­ate a youth­ful glow. Hes­i­tant to stray from your neu­tral palette? Try ad­ding a brighter blush to the ap­ples of your cheeks.

SET­TING YOUR EYE­SHADOW

Avoid us­ing eye creams in warmer weather as they tend to break down in the heat. In­stead, ap­ply eye primer to the lid and set with a pow­der eye­shadow. The same goes for eye­lin­ers. Be­gin by ap­ply your pen­cil or gel liner, then us­ing a small an­gled brush press dark eye­shadow over the liner to set it for longer wear.

IN­VEST IN A WA­TER­PROOF MAS­CARA

Give your eyes def­i­ni­tion with a long-last­ing mas­cara that length­ens and ac­cen­tu­ates your lashes all with­out the fear of smudg­ing. No more rac­coon eyes.

USE BLUSH OR LIP STAINS

These stains are great for longevity in hot weather. They are ap­plied with fin­gers or a sep­a­rate make-up sponge. They of­fer sheer cov­er­age that can be built up, mak­ing them su­per ver­sa­tile.

BRONZER

Add warmth, di­men­sion and glow to your skin by ap­ply­ing bronzer to the ar­eas of the face where the sun would nat­u­ral fall: fore­head, cheek­bones, chin, nose. We rec­om­mend pow­der bronz­ers with vary­ing shades as they are eas­ier to ap­ply and you can match your skin tone as your dark­ener over the sum­mer.

STOP THE SHINE

Blot­ting pa­per is a girl’s best friend when it comes to re­mov­ing un­wanted shine. Sim­ply pat your face with blot­ting pa­per. This will ab­sorb the ex­cess oil from your skin then fol­low up with a translu­cent set­ting pow­der.

TRANSLU­CENT SET­TING POW­DER

Set­ting pow­der helps to min­imise shine and lock in foun­da­tion and con­cealer leav­ing you with smoother look­ing skin. Use a fluffy pow­der brush to ap­ply translu­cent pow­der over the face to set your make-up.
