Summer Beauty Musts
Summer complexions, call for a less-is-more approach. Bare, sun-kissed skin is meant to glow, highlighted only with bronzer, embellished only with flashes of colour, covered only with SPF. Heavy creams, full-coverage foundations and dark red lips are replaced with lightweight moisturisers, sun protection and bright pops of peach and coral. Along with summer's leg-baring outfits and pedicure flaunting sandals, consider these products to be your summer essentials.
Heliocare by Cantabria Labs Heliocare 360 Mineral Tolerance Fluid SPF50
The best beauty secret is and always will be sunscreen. It's your best defense against fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots and sun damage. This SPF50 is perfect for everyone, even the sensitive skin souls.
Stay In Place Liner
Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Gel Eyeliner
This eyeliner glides on perfectly, stays put all day, and it is so easy to apply, correct and clean if you make a mistake.
Perricone MD No Makeup Blush
This blush delivers a sheer wash of colour to enliven the face, in the most natural way.
The Complexion Perfector
NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30
Tinted moisturiser helps add a wash of even glow without feeling too heavy on the skin.
The Complexion Brightener
ILIA Liquid Light Serum Highlighter
Even if you aren't wearing makeup, adding a bit of highlighter to the tops of cheekbones, eyelids and along the nose adds dimension to the face. Highlighter, a touch of mascara and a great lip gives you an easy, polished summer look.
Loving Tan Deluxe Face Tan
This goes on like a moisturiser that you can put on at night. It has a nice texture, and you will wake up looking refreshed and sun-kissed with a very natural, even tan.
The Lash Maximizer
Kevyn Aucoin The Volume Mascara
Mascara is a definite desert island product. A face just isn't done without mascara. I love the rich carbon black of this product and the fullness and definition it gives.
The Lip To Consider
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil
Not too bold, not too light but has to be fresh and feel like summer captured in makeup. The texture is great for the summer months, like lipstick without stickiness.
