When it comes to summer we're all about exploring natural beauty and having a fresh face, letting our skin breathe in some of the summer weather. Here are some of our top tips on achieving a natural summer make-up look.

  1. Always use an SPF underneath make-up. Either opt for a moisturiser with built-in SPF or apply a separate product. This will help protect your skin against any sun damage, helping you to stay youthful-looking.
  2. When it comes to a make-up base, why not go for something with light coverage? Using a BB cream or a tinted moisturiser will allow you to achieve an even skin tone and cover imperfections without feeling heavy on your skin.
  3. Depending on your skin type you may want to use some form of powder. If you have oily/combination skin simply use a mattifying powder along your t-zone where you are most prone to oily spells. Drier skin types can skip this step.
  4. Add a subtle tint of colour to your cheeks with a soft peach blush. Peach helps warm your skin tone and create a pretty glow.
  5. Using a bronzer on your cheekbones and places where the sun would naturally hit can help create a sun kissed look; perfect for holidays or a night out.
  6. When it comes to the eyes; keep it simple. If you have oily skin apply a primer to your eyelids, normal skin types can skip this step.
  7. Opt for black or brown mascara that lengthens to help create soft, natural lashes.
  8. Try using a powder product to fill in those brows if you want to achieve a natural look. Full brows are on trend right now so simply shape your natural brows with tweezers.
  9. When it comes to the lips, preparation is key. Apply a lip balm that contains SPF to protect your lips as well as keeping them smooth all day long.
  10. Apply a soft colour to your lips for a natural look; tinted lip balms are great and easy to work with and we also love soft coral/peach tones for summer!
