FRESH, dewy skin is all the hype during the coming months. Here are some of my top picks that will change your makeup game this summer and give you the ultimate glow up.
La Roche-Posay Anthelios UVMUNE 400 hydrating cream SPF50 50ml: Topping up your SPF and keeping your skin hydrated is super important, especially in the hotter months. This SPF is brown girl friendly, as it doesn’t give off a white cast over the face. It does not peel also. There are so many brilliant, yet pricey SPF creams out there so it can get a little mind boggling, but this product is a good starting point priced at £16.72.
Pro tip: Let this sink into your skin for 15 minutes before applying your makeup.
Rare Beauty – soft pinch liquid blush: Celebrity owned beauty brand Rare beauty is iconic and known for its gorgeously pigmented liquid blushers. Soft pinch liquid blush by Selena Gomez comes with a flat wand, so you can easily map out the contours of the cheeks. This product has great staying power and a little goes a long way. Price pointed a £22, you can’t go wrong with this little gem.
Bobbi Brown – vitamin enriched skin tint: Wellknown for its vitamin enriched face base moisturiser, Bobbi Brown have now created a skin tint packed with all the goodness; shea butter and hyaluronic acid with a blend of vitamins. This product gives an instant glow that leaves a natural skin finish with even coverage. With 18 shades to choose from, this product is a win and a must have for your summer kit.
Mario Badescu facial spray with aloe herb and rosewater: Face mists are used to deliver instant hydration to the skin and are suitable for all skin types. You would commonly use a face mist before applying makeup. It can be used through the day to keep your skin hydrated. Face mists are not setting sprays so be sure to choose one that won’t disturb your makeup. Here’s my tried and tested recommendation. This product is a cult favourite and gives off dewy skin vibes. With a subtle rose scent, it leaves the skin looking radiant and reenergised. I like to keep my face mist in the fridge on superhot days.
Fenty Beauty – poutsicle hydrating lip tint: Lip tints are always a great and effortless way to complete a look, without trying too hard, especially if you are going for a barely-there makeup look. The award-winning product is a personal favourite. It glides on like a gloss, but leaves behind a beautiful flush of colour that keeps your lips feeling hydrated and soft all day.
