Soon our bronzed skin is a distant memory, but what if we could look like this all year round? Follow these 5 tips to continue to look glowing all year long.
The concept of primer has only developed in recent years, but we have found that it can be detrimental to your final make up look and is a staple for your makeup bag.
The primer creates an extra layer between the makeup and your skin, making it even out your skin tone and smooth the surface helping your makeup look to last all night long and sit nicely on the skin. It can also act as a moisturiser stopping your makeup from coming off and protecting it from drying out your skin!
Primers are created to target specific concerns, whether that be pore-minimising or hydration! Putting this on before your foundation helps your skin look naturally flawless, and gives you that dewy summer glow.
A major mistake commonly made when choosing foundation, is that you choose something that is not targeted to your skin type. One of the most important things is that you are using a foundation that is complementary to what your skin needs.
Whether that’s using a liquid foundation with an oily base for dry skin, or an oil-free foundation if you need to control your midday shiny t-zone. It is important that we make these considerations when choosing our base to make sure that our final look is natural and without imperfections.
Ignoring your skin type could leave your skin feeling dry and cracking or a sweating oily mess, meaning that you can definitely kiss that bronzed goddess goodbye.
Oils, Oils, Oils! It is important that we are constantly keeping our skin hydrated in our everyday skin care routine.
A simple and easy way to do this is using natural oils!. This could be applied before bedtime to allow your skin to soak in it as you sleep. Oils as simple as rosehip, avocado or even argan oil can be put on your skin overnight to help you get that dewy summery look.
More complex serums and oils can also be used to keep your skin moisturised and hydrated, to visibly calm redness and irritation in the skin.
Either way, you’ll wake up the next day with your skin feel hydrated and smooth!
Lastly, highlighter plays an important role on completing your final makeup look. Using this product can create your soft summer glow, and allows you to put emphasis on ideal areas that naturally catch the light.
Applying highlighter to your cheekbones, the tip of your nose or even your across your chest! Will allow you to accentuate key areas and leave you feeling like a glowing and glittery goddess. And remember, you can never have too much highlighter!
