1. keep moisturised. As well as helping the skin recover from sun rays, moisturisers can also help makeup last longer in the humid summer weather. The Korres Moisturising cream is perfect for keeping skin hydrated. It offers valuable water-binding ingredients that enhance the skin's NMF (Natural Moisturising Factor). It’s available in summery scents like Almond Blossom and wild rose, perfect after a long day sat in the sun. 

2. Use a bronzer to give a bright summer glow. Don’t like sunbathing but still want that summer tan? Fake it! use a powder bronzer that matches your natural skin tone along with the Ecotools Domed Bronzer brush to give an even finish to your look.

3.Play with vibrant colours. Whether its a summer holiday or a festival you’re going to, bright makeup can give a summery feel to your overall look and can also brighten the face and give a youthful glow to the skin. A punchy blush applied to the apples of the cheeks is a perfect place to start. The Elizabeth Arden Radiance blush in Pink Pop is an excellent colour for that summer look. We recommend the Real Techniques finishing brush to apply. 

4. Put the thick lipsticks to the side. Instead of wearing thick, high coverage lipsticks in summer, opt for a lighter lip balm or lip stain. Burts Bees lip shimmer is available in a large variety of peachy and pink shades and contains Shea Butter and antioxidant-rich Fruit Oils to moisturise, nourish and soften lips naturally.

5. use makeup sponges instead of brushes to apply makeup. Try using the Ecotools foam applicator brush or Real Techniques iconic beauty blender to lightly apply foundation, dampen the sponge in water before use to avoid putting the makeup on too thick. Applying too much makeup can lead to the makeup moving around in the summer heat, so makeup sponges are a quick and easy tool to use to apply a thin and even layer of makeup on the face.
