How To Get That Summer Makeup Glow In 5 Simple Steps

 

 

Summer VS Makeup! 

We all like to look our best, but with holiday season finally here the last thing we want is to cake our face with layers of cosmetic products, So in this blog i am going to go through 5 quick fixes for summer makeup 

So first things first

Skincare 

Everyone one knows the 3 key steps, cleanse, tone & moisturise but not everyone knows you should change your products according to season. 

When the seasons change so does our skin to adapt to the change of weather.

in the winter/ autumn months most of us like to keep skin super hydrated and its just as important during the summer, sometimes our products can just feel to heavy in the warm weather,  Changing your heavy moisturiser to a lightweight serum like The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension £5.00, suitable for all skin types and is popular for its skin brightening properties, super hydrating and targets uneven skin tone can help create that dewy skin base everyone is trying to achieve. 

 

Finish with a lightweight moisturiser like Simple Kind To Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser £1.50 

Easily absorbed and suitable for all skin types.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Second Is Primer 

Primer is extremely important especially in the summer when your makeup is in fear of sliding off, so to combat this apply a primer before your foundation.

Now primers come in many types for many purposes such as...

  • Hydrating

  • pore filling

  • mattifying

  • anti-aging

  • colour correcting

so chose your primer according to your skin type and needs, but by adding this step you can enhance the longevity of your makeup and create a great base even before foundation.

 

 

 

 

Third Is Foundation          

 

Choosing the correct foundation or BB cream is important, ideally you want something light and easy to apply so go for something like Urban Decay Naked Skin £28.50 its super light weight, has light to medium coverage and is buildable.

If you are more of a BB cream type of person go for something like bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel £23.80 because its a gel its really light weight and easy to blend, feels like applying your daily serum and gives a gorgeous dewy effect it also has a medium coverage and also has an SPF30 ideal to protect from summer rays.        

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fourth Cheeks & Eyes

 

So after achieving the perfect summer base you want something simple and quick to apply to finish off your look so this is why i chose the Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look In A Palette £49.00 but is an all rounder with gorgeous versatile colours that compliment very skin tone, includes 3 eye colours, 2 cheek colours, 1 highlighter and 1 bronze. I AM IN LOVEEEEEE!!!

 

 

 

Fifth Is Lips 

 

To complete any summer look i suggest adding a pop of colour and something moisturising like Benefit Posiebalm Hydrating Tinted Lip balm in Poppy Tint £15.50 also doubles up as a lip conditioner.
