WHAT THE BEAUTY EX­PERTS RE­ALLY USE

How do a top blog­ger and a der­ma­tol­o­gist change up their Summer skin­care rou­tines? What’s the celebrity make-up artist’s se­cret for melt-proof looks and de-puff­ing eyes? We asked some of our favourite women-in-the-know to spill the beans…

Things I avoid at this time of year are treat­ments or prod­ucts that can heighten the skin’s sen­si­tiv­ity and sus­cep­ti­bil­ity to sun­burn, such as chem­i­cal peels, resur­fac­ing masks or liq­uid ex­fo­liants. At the beach, I al­ways use SPF50 or more on my face. I also swear by Elemis Sun­wise Tan Ac­cel­er­a­tor, £24. Use it in place of your body mois­turiser for a week be­fore you go on holiday to stim­u­late skin’s nat­u­ral pro­duc­tion of melanin be­fore sun ex­po­sure. Not only does it make sure your skin is prepped, but it helps make your tan deeper and last longer. It’s also cru­cial to ex­fo­li­ate well

‘Try more VI­BRANT LIP colour to LIFT your WHOLE FACE’

Prep­ping, prim­ing and a brighter colour pal­ette are key, says ME­GAN MOSLEY, Beauty Buyer at John Lewis

[con­tin­ued from pre­vi­ous page] be­fore you go away: my favourite’s the De­cléor 1000 Grain Body Ex­fo­lia­tor [1], £28.

I like my skin­care lighter in Summer, so I switch from a cream to a gel mois­turiser. I also swap liq­uid foun­da­tion for a glow primer such as Char­lotte Til­bury Won­der­glow Face Primer, £38.50. I’ll then use Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Pow­der [2], £40, which has an SPF for a lighter cov­er­age on my skin. It’s a good idea to change your blusher to a warmer tone, too, and try a more vi­brant lip colour – a co­ral, or­ange or brighter pink.

To help make-up last when it’s warmer, prepa­ra­tion and set­ting are key. Us­ing a primer boosts the stay­ing power of your base. As well as Char­lotte Til­bury, Laura Mercier and Tom Ford do good ones. If you’re plan­ning to wear eye­shadow, Ur­ban De­cay does a great Eye­shadow Primer Po­tion, from £9, that will pre­vent creas­ing through­out the day. Once you’ve ap­plied your make-up, set­ting pow­der keeps you look­ing fresh faced. I swear by Laura

Mercier Translu­cent Loose Set­ting Pow­der, £29, but if you pre­fer pressed

pow­ders, the Char­lotte Til­bury Air­brush Flaw­less Fin­ish Pow­der, £33, and Hour­glass Am­bi­ent Light­ing Pow­ders, £40, are fan­tas­tic.

My bare legs se­cret

My best tip comes from Gilbert Soliz, Global Make-up Artist for Marc Ja­cobs Beauty. He taught me to take some il­lu­mi­nat­ing primer in my hands, rub them to­gether, then run them down just the cen­tre of my legs. It makes them ap­pear elon­gated.
