SUMMER MAKEUP


Summer is the time to show off your natural glow and let your skin bask in the glorious sun rays, (with SPF on of course!) however, if you can’t live without a beat face, here are some products that you should consider using to keep you flawless.

SPF


Whatever your SPF of choice is, make sure it’s above SPF30. Click here are some recommendations.


Primer

Too Faced Hangover 3-in-1 Primer Spray


You don’t want heavy products on your face in warm weather, but in order to make your makeup last, you still need a primer. A spray primer that leaves a super light coating is best.

Translucent Powder

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder


Putting a light layer of powder on your face before your foundation helps your makeup last longer, as the powder will absorb oil and moisture.

Foundation

NARS Soft Matte Complete Foundation


This lightweight and matte foundation is perfect for hot weather. A powder foundation would be even better, but I prefer liquid.

Concealer

Too Faced Born This Way Multi-Sculpting Concealer


A long wearing concealer that won’t dry your skin out is essential for a face beat.

Finishing Powder

MAC Mineralise Skin Finish Natural


A lightweight powder that will lock in the liquid products you applied, is essential to prevent your makeup from breaking down under the sun. This one leaves a beautiful finish and can be worn alone.

Blush, Bronzer & Contour


You can use any powder for these steps, as powder lasts longer than cream products in hot weather.

Lip Liner

MAC Lip Pencil


Some lip pencils bleed and can really ruin your makeup; it’s worse in hot climates. MAC’s lip pencil is great at staying in place and stopping your lip products from smearing outside your lip line.

Lipstick

MAC Matte or Retro Matte


Matte lipsticks last longer and are therefore ideal for warm temperatures. There is a risk of your lips drying out so you may prefer a lip gloss, however, MAC has perfected the matte lip formula and they are very comfortable to wear.

Lipgloss

Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb


Lipgloss doesn’t last as long as lipstick, but it keeps your lips moisturised and Gloss Bomb specifically isn’t at all sticky, making it comfortable to wear.

Setting Spray

Urban Decay All Nighter Spray


This step is crucial to rocking a beat face in hot weather. This setting spray in particular also helps control sweat.
