Well hello December! I can’t believe that 2018 is already coming to an end. With Summer upon us, and Christmas only a couple of weeks away it’s a perfect time to update our beauty kits so that we are ready for the heat. Swap out your full coverage foundation with a tinted moisturiser or a CC or BB cream Summer is all about less-is-more beauty so use a lighter coverage complexion base while the weather is warm. Lighter coverage skin products will keep you looking fresher, and they will often have added ingredients with skincare benefits not always found in heavier foundations. Break out the bronzer We all know that the sun is a major factor in ageing our skin, so a bronzer is a great way of creating a sexy summer glow. Bronzer should be applied to the areas that the sun hits the most, and where you would tan the most (if you weren’t wearing sunscreen) – typically the cheekbones, temples, and the bridge of your nose. Use a large fluffy brush to apply the powder where you need it. Give your cheeks a rosy glow with a liquid blush Leave the powder blush for another day and buff a liquid blush on for a youthful glow. It will blend into your skin looking more natural than a powder blush. Find your signature nail colour Summer is the best time to play with pops of colour. From turquoise to neon have fun finding your perfect colour Or get the perfect summer nude nail A nude nail never goes out of style. Once you’ve found your perfect nude you’ll be set for summer Become friends with your lash curler Curling your lashes before applying your mascara will give you the appearance of larger, more open eyes, and can make a huge difference to your makeup application. Use a refreshing face mist throughout the day To keep your cool use a refreshing mist during the day. As with all skincare products look for one that doesn’t contain any alcohol to avoid drying out your skin.
