Summer Makeup Looks

We love the summer, but we know there’s nothing to love about make-up melting off your face. Our summer make up tips will keep your make-up looking fresh all season.

HOT WEATHER MAKE-UP TIPS

Hotter weather can cause make-up to crease and cake. Applying a light layer of primer – after your moisturiser but before your foundation – to help make-up stay in place, even on the hottest days. Primers can also helps to reduce shine and minimise the appearance of pores.
For lighter summer make-up, swap your foundation for a BB cream or CC cream, like our illuminating Instaglow CC Cream.

BRONZE YOUR MAKE-UP LOOK

Bronzer is a staple of any summer make-up look. It not only adds a touch of warmth to your skin, it helps your eyes look brighter and your teeth seem whiter. To keep it looking natural, apply it to the high points of your face like your cheekbones, chin, forehead and nose, where the sun would naturally hit your face.

SUMMER EYE MAKE-UP

Bold eyeshadow is a great go-to look for winter nights, but you don’t need to miss out on eye make-up in summer. Our creamy Eye Colour Sticks glide on easily for a fuss-free application, and the waterproof, high-pigment finish means they’ll stay put. Use them for flicks, shapes and shading.

TIPS FOR GLOWING SUMMER SKIN

For a subtle glow, we love our Shimmer Waves for summer make-up. Your blush, contour, highlight and eyeshadow all in one, it’s a brilliant multi-purpose palette to see you through the season.

If you have oily skin, you may want to avoid anything too shimmery or luminous, as the extra humidity could cause your skin to appear shiny. Treat yourself to a combination Lip & Cheek Stain for long-lasting colour that won’t cake or melt.
