Want a lippy that doesn’t budge? Liquid lipsticks are the only way to go. With the pigment punch of a regular lipstick, their powder formulas lock in place once they’ve dried and usually need an oil-based remover to get them off. NEW Stila Shine Fever Lip Vinyl in Amp It Up does all that and creates a soft sheen.
When it comes to summer shadow, go big and go bold. Why? Because, if you can’t rock a bright colour in the sunshine – with all that natural light enhancement – then when can you? Choose a shade that you’re naturally drawn to, and create a bold shape that sweeps your entire lid so it can been seen. Finish with lashings of mascara – waterproof, of course. L’Oréal Paris Bambi Eye False Lash Waterproof Mascara is a Health & Beauty favourite.
When the sun comes out, you won’t want hair on your neck making you even hotter. Enter the hair equivalent of air-con: the top knot. Give it a style update with a reverse French plait. It’s the same technique as a regular one, but start from the nape of your neck and work up to the crown, before twisting into a knot shape of your choice.
Blusher brings a summer look to life, adding dimension to tanned skin and creating the illusion of a flush of colour for when the sun might not be shining. Powders, however, need to be teamed with a cream for staying power. So, smooth on a pop of colour with a balm and let it settle. Then top with a coordinating powder to set and you’re good to go!
As the temperature heats up, one fact remains: you want your base to last. Begin with a primer – we love NEW Benefit The Porefessional Hydrate Primer (22ml) for a hydration hit. A full-coverage foundation will look flat in bright sunshine and anything too sheer has a tendency to appear sweaty. Opt for medium coverage you can build up or buff out to make slightly lighter. NEW Givenchy Teint Couture Everwear Foundation SPF20 (30ml) is ideal. Lock everything in place with Urban Decay All Nighter Make-Up Setting Spray (118ml) EXCLUSIVE.
