Summer Staying Power

Summer Staying Power

You don't have to be a beauty expert to know that warmer weather means shinier skin. But with a few tips from our Pro Artists, you can stay in control of the glow, keeping your look fresh and naturally radiant, no matter what the forecast throws at us!

Colour Pops
Summer is the perfect time to play with colour - a bright lip or cheek is fresh and vibrant, and means you can go with minimal makeup on the rest of the face. Pair with a sheer foundation and lashings of waterproof mascara.

Natural radiance
Your skin's natural oils add a dewy look to your makeup. So while a gentle highlight is fine, hold back on that illuminator to avoid shining a little too brightly.

Blot it out
Come prepared with a pack of beauty blotting papers (or even tissues do the job). If you're looking a little shiny at any point, a little blot will mattify things.

Prep like a pro
Cleanse and lightly moisturise skin before applying makeup. If skin is very oily, a mattifying moisturiser is a good idea. Start your makeup with a primer, which helps makeup to stay in place. Make sure you prep the eyelids too!

Set the Scene
Apply a translucent powder over your foundation, paying special attention to oily areas, like the T-zone. While a little re-powder is fine throughout the day, be wary of applying too frequently as it could start to look 'cakey'.

Once you've finished your makeup, spritz setting spray over your whole face. For ultra staying powder, mist over skin before primer as well. Our spray is perfect to refresh your skin and makeup throughout the day and feels amazing on hot skin!
