For many people, summer is the best time of year, but melting makeup, sticky lipstick and smeared eyes are just the worst. Use these tips to keep your face looking fresh and pretty:
1. Base to base
Make BB creams and an oil-free foundation your new best friends. Use them along with your oil-free moisturiser in the morning, for perfect coverage that will keep you looking fresh throughout the day.
2. Skip the shimmer
As much as we all love a dewy glow from time to time, it’s a big no-no in hot and humid weather conditions. Avoid cream foundations or anything too luminous, as these will make your face appear sweaty and gross.
3. Keep things light
This will keep your makeup from caking and creasing during the course of the day, then repeat after us: ‘Less is more.’ Your BB cream and oil-free foundation are all you need.
4. Bronze believably
To create a more natural look, apply a powder bronzer to where the sun will naturally hit your face: forehead, cheekbones, chin and nose. Opt for a bronzer with varying shades that will blend together for the best results.
5. Play with vibrant colours
Just as you would wear a bold printed top or bright bag, this is the perfect time to have fun with your bright make-up palettes and lipsticks. Opt for a punchy blush on your cheeks if vibrant colours are not your forte or a beautiful red lipstick.
