1 Summer is the perfect time to give your face a rest from the more sophisticated makeup routines of the rest of the year. Focus instead on healthy, hydrated skin maintained with thorough cleansing, a moisturising day and night cream and regular application of SPF.
2 We love the fresh look seen on American designer Vera Wang’s spring catwalk – a glow-drenched complexion, shining as if you had just finished an easy run along the beach. Work the sun-kissed magic by prepping your skin with a BB cream for barely there coverage. This summer, we can’t get enough of the smart all-in-one products! The season’s faithful friends even your skin tone and hydrate at the same time.
3 Bronzer is another must-have product for creating an easy-breezy summer look. Sweep lightly over your cheeks and high points with a big, soft brush. The result is ultra-sophisticated and natural.
4 Intensify your eyes with a waterproof mascara that will last all day long on the beach. For an extra touch of warm glamour, dab on a bit of gold-shimmering lip gloss and you will have captured the sun-smooched look.
1 Get your skin ready for the rays with a body peel in the shower with a hydrating, fine-grained peeling creme. Give a little extra TLC to elbows and feet, where the skin can easily get dry and flaky.
2 The last step in your summer routine should be a moisturising SPF. Plump for an all-in-one product that hydrates and protects and you won’t have to carry around too much stuff in your summer makeup bag or beach bag.
3 Moisture is the key to radiantly beautiful summer skin, so you should always end a day on the beach with a cooling and nourishing after sun product to soften your skin and make your tan last longer.
