Summer proof your makeup routine

Summer proof your beauty routine with simple changes to stop smeared and smudged makeup.

• Wear sunscreen… applying makeup over hot burnt skin will be harder than waiting for sunscreen to sink in 🥵

• Use a primer. Designed to keep your makeup in place, apply as the first step post skincare.

• Less is more… with less product there’s less chance of it shifting

• Try sheerer versions of your favourite shades for a fresh look that will be easy to fix

• Blot away excess moisture… I’m a fan of using a fine veil of translucent powder when you first do your makeup but continually reapplying throughout the day may leave you looking cakey… carry blotting paper for a quick fix up throughout the day

• Use smudgeproof products on your eyes, if you find even they are no match for the hot temperatures try blotting before application and setting with translucent powder (or colour matched power for eyeliner) before you leave the house.

Work with your skintone and the cosmetic effect that you want to achieve. We are all lucky that we have unique faces.. play up the features you love and play down those you don't.
