Summer days call for fuss-free make-up – heavy foundations need not apply.
The S/S ’17 runways were dominated by natural-looking ‘no make-up make-up’, with smatterings of freckles and glowing skin. Keep make-up to a minimum to mirror the look – simply smooth on one of the tinted moisturisers,, CC creams and BB creams below, add a swipe of lip gloss and mascara and you’re good to go – the beach is calling.
If you like a matte finish (all the better for keeping shine at bay), this NARS beauty fits the brief. It offers a touch more coverage than your average tinted moisturiser and blends like a dream.
This is golden summer glow in a bottle (or, tube). The dewy finish looks completely natural – and it helps that there are 10 shades to choose from. SPF 30 protects and marine botanicals hydrate.
If party season has taken its toll on your complexion, this radiant-finish BB cream is a must. Wear alone for hydration, SPF 20 sun protection and a never-fail dullness antidote.
Dry skin types should stick to the original Garnier BB Cream, but we love this oil-free version for summer. Designed for oily and combination skin, the non-comedogenic formula works to minimise pores and has a dreamy soft-focus finish.
Is it skincare? Is it make-up? It’s both. This hard-working CC cream contains hyaluronic acid (only our favourite hydrating ingredient ever) and marine extracts to soothe sensitive skin, protect against environmental pollutants and provide a natural-looking base.
