Summers were made to be enjoyed so this is a beauty article focused on how to achieve a super quick and easy make- up look meant to bring out the star in you.
I am here to share some amazing products you need to dazzle everyone wearing the perfect make-up that stays with you from morning until dusk – the best thing about it? It doesn’t melt off your face and it is universally flattering!
The hero make-up products are of course primers, setting powders, creamy eyeshadows and sprays! But which ones? I will share a few finds that can help you create a lightweight, breathable make-up look. This way you can focus on having a fabulous day instead of retouching your powder.
So let’s dive into full-on radiant, gorgeous, epic goddess-like make-up below.
A good base is key when it comes to prepping your skin for a makeover:
PREP YOUR SKIN
Q+A Peptide Facial Serum
Gives your skin a boost and hydrates the deeper layers of the skin.
It is water-based and really safe to use. Not to mention it’s vegan, alcohol-free, fragrance-free and caters to any skin type.
Q+A Caffeine Eye Serum
This is a miracle product for dark circles and fine lines. I love because of the rollerball applicator, it saves me so much time in the morning. In addition to being cooling and smooth on my eyes, reducing the dreaded puffiness.
Skin Protector SPF 30 Primer by Ark Skincare
Follow up on skin prep with. It is quite a multi-tasker – Award-winning make-up primer, sunscreen and moisturiser, all in one.
START YOUR MAKE-UP
With the base now sorted, let’s start focusing on your face frame, adding foundation:
A staple in my make-up kit, Skin Base by Illamasqua is very smooth, blends easily onto the skin and has a supernatural effect with the greatest buildable coverage ever. Suits most skin types and leave a satiny glowy finish while being water-resistant. Set it with translucent powder (IT Cosmetics featured below) and make it summer-proof with a setting spray. The brilliant thing about it is that it doubles up as a concealer, I do not usually recommend using foundation instead of concealer, this being the only foundation I would make an exception for.
Add dimension to your face by using a newly-launched bronzer from Charlotte Tilbury. Airbrush Matte Bronzer is an instant success, feels luxurious and adds the much needed sun-kissed glow. It has its own refill, which makes it even more desirable.
