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.
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.
