Prep, set and for­get for make-up that sur­vives the sum­mer swel­ter. Kailo Well­ness Medispa make-up artist Kylie Gillmeis­ter says less is def­i­nitely more when it comes to a look that can han­dle the heat.

“Get rid of heavy liq­uid foun­da­tions and find a pow­der or con­cealer that pro­vides all­day full cov­er­age,” she says.

“My ul­ti­mate sum­mer es­sen­tials are a good lip con­di­tioner, Ul­traceu­ti­cals UV Pro­tec­tive Daily Mois­turiser with SPF30 and a bot­tle of wa­ter.”

For a nat­u­ral look that will go the dis­tance, start with strong foun­da­tions.

“Pre­par­ing your base prop­erly is es­sen­tial in hot weather,” Kylie says.

“Make sure you use a primer for longevity that also of­fers a mat­ti­fy­ing ef­fect, such as Is­sada’s Calm Balm, and set with a pow­der that of­fers stay­ing power. Use Is­sada’s Min­eral Baked Foun­da­tion to touch up your make-up through­out the day.”

Look for pur­pose-de­signed prod­ucts to stop the sum­mer slide.

“In­vest­ing in a good set­ting spray is a great idea,” Kylie says.

“I love Ur­ban De­cay All Nighter be­cause your make-up just will not budge.

“The Eye of Horus God­dess Mas­cara is a great match for this spray be­cause it pro­vides nat­u­ral wa­ter­proof pro­tec­tion while still giv­ing you in­cred­i­ble vol­ume.”

While thick, white for­mu­las may have turned you off sun­screen in the past, there’s a more make-up friendly way to en­sure you’re pro­tected.

“Choose a mois­turiser with sun­screen. At Kailo we rec­om­mend Ul­traceu­ti­cals UV Pro­tec­tive Daily Mois­turiser with SPF30 as a daily must-wear shield against sun dam­age,” Kylie says.

“Us­ing a min­eral-based foun­da­tion or pow­der can of­fer sun pro­tec­tion too.

“It’s a great way to keep things nat­u­ral while also pro­tect­ing you against sun dam­age and pre­ma­ture age­ing.”

Stick with the bare es­sen­tials and let that healthy hol­i­day glow show.

“I tend to go for warm, golden hues — light foun­da­tion and just a cream bronzer to give that sum­mer glow,” Kylie says.

“With freshly done eye­brows and a lash lift and tint, there’s not much need for eye make-up. Fin­ish off with one of your favourite lip­sticks. Turn it into more of a night look by switch­ing to a bold red lip and a winged eye­liner.”
