stay fresh and pretty all summer long

The first step in a ba­sic regime is to make sure make-up will ad­here to your skin by us­ing a good cleanser to re­move any oil or per­spi­ra­tion. “My sug­ges­tion for a ba­sic regime is a cleanser, eye cream, treat­ment serum and mois­turiser,” says Gil­lian Adams from Gil­lian Adams Salon & Spa in Tur­ra­murra, Syd­ney. “Then ap­ply treat­ment serum, mois­turiser, eye cream and make-up.

“Once the ba­sics are cov­ered, it’s time to start adding ad­di­tional prod­ucts to el­e­vate your regime for the sea­son – masks, ex­fo­li­at­ing prod­ucts and the in­jec­tion of power in­gre­di­ents such a wa­ter­rich hyaluronic acid, Vi­ta­min A and Vi­ta­min C, which will keep your skin’s hy­dra­tion lev­els high and re­fine the com­plex­ion for glow­ing skin.

“Vis­it­ing a skin ther­a­pist will help you iden­tify what your skin needs and al­low for the best prod­ucts to be pre­scribed.”

To hide hot, flushed cheeks, Gil­lian rec­om­mends min­eral-based make-up which al­lows skin to breathe. “Min­eral makeup is gen­er­ally lighter on the skin and is de­signed to be lay­ered onto the skin. It does not con­tain co­mod­e­genic in­gre­di­ents, which can sit in the skin’s pores and cause clog­ging.”

Make-up artist Liv Lun­delius says get­ting a natural-look­ing base is all in the skin preparation. “A light­weight hy­drat­ing serum that locks in mois­ture can plump the skin with­out leav­ing a shiny residue. Then use a mul­ti­task­ing BB cream with sun pro­tec­tion that will last through the hottest days – some can even be worn on the beach,” she says.

For some­thing a lit­tle more glam­orous? “En­hance your bronzed skin with warm high­lights on top of your cheek­bones, bronze smokey eyes and a glossy lip to add just enough sheen and light to con­trast darker skin­tones.”
