An Edit of Summer Makeup Must-haves

With summer around the corner, we’re making some updates in our makeup collections. Whether you’re planning holidays or just want to know more about the key beauty trends to try, we’ve curated an edit of the products that embody all things summer.

The Tinted Primer

A primer and self tan in one? We’re sold. The Vita Liberata Beauty Blur Sunless Glow is ideal for busy people, combining a bronzing primer with a gradual self-tanner. It allows effortless makeup application with a luminous natural finish. The St Tropez Tinted Primer works in a similar way, developing within 4 to 8 hours to create a believable faux glow. To intensify the bronze, apply a light layer of the new Kevyn Aucoin The Neo Bronzer.

The Wet-look Highlight

The wet-look highlight emanates from the ‘Glass Skin’ trend, and glossy highlighting going nowhere this season. The Kevyn Aucoin Glass Glow Face Highlighter comes in three shades, allowing you cheat your way to luminous skin and to pay homage to this incredible K-Beauty creation. Mix in this liquid illuminator with your primer, foundation, or add sparingly to the high points of the face. The new Pixi On the Glow Moisture Stick is also a great way to achieve a wet look highlight, adding hydrating and glow to the face, lips, hair and body.

The Long-Lasting Foundation

Summer soirées and hotter days put your makeup to the test. By opting for a long-wearing high coverage foundation with a naturally luminous finish, you can enjoy the perfect summer base. We love the new Pixi Beauty Balm, a hybrid skincare-makeup formula with multiple skincare benefits. For a lighter but equally flawless coverage, the Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation is our go-to. To lock in the coverage, we advise using a setting spray such as the Nip + Fab Makeup Mattifying Fixing Mist.

The Dazzling Glitter Eye

We love wearing glitter throughout the year, but summer is when we amp up the shimmer. Along with the Illamasqua Nude Collection Unveiled Artistry Palette, the new Iconic Chromes have been on our radar since launch. For best results, use your finger to apply this full pigment cream shimmer.
