As we head into the warmer months, it’s time to switch up your makeup look. Say goodbye to your full-coverage foundations, cooler tones, matte finishes and deep lip colours, and make way for a natural summer glow! Read on for our top tips on how to give your complexion a radiant and healthy appearance.
How to Achieve a Natural Summer Glow:
Before you even start to apply your summer makeup, it’s time to prepare your canvas. If you haven’t yet bought one of our Spring Seasonal Special Facials, you have just a few weeks left to secure yours. Choose from the Sothys Seasonal Facial or the Ultraceuticals Azyme. Both of these facials will deliver a much-needed dose of radiance to winter-weary skin, helping you on your way to that wonderful, dewy look that is such an integral part of a natural summer glow.
Now Spring Clean your Makeup Bag:
Bag your Base:
It’s time to say goodbye to your winter full-coverage foundation. Instead, opt for a lightweight tinted moisturizer or BB cream that provides sheer coverage and a subtle glow. These types of product even out your skin tone without feeling heavy. We love Jane Iredale’s Dream Tint® Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15. This calming and soothing base hydrates and provides sheer to medium coverage. But it also helps prevent trans-epidermal water loss.
Choose your Bronzer:
It’s time to add a little shimmer as we head into summer. But when you apply your bronzer, do so only where the sun would naturally tint your skin. (Even though we don’t let that happen and all wear our SPF!) Apply to your forehead and down your nose, a sweep across your cheekbones and don’t forget your neck and decolletage.
Remember, when applying bronzer, less is often more. It’s better to start with a small amount and build up gradually to achieve the desired level of warmth and definition. Additionally, choose a bronzer shade that complements your skin tone. For a natural look, opt for a shade that is only a shade or two darker than your natural skin colour.
Add some Shimmer:
Shimmery eyeshadows, highlighters, and glosses are great for summer, helping to create a luminous, dewy look. Pop in to view our range of Jane Iredale PurePressed® Eye Shadows. Whether you choose a single, triple or palette we’re sure you’ll find a lustrous eyeshadow that glides on and stays on, with just the right amount of sparkle!
Brighten up your Lips:
Summer calls for fresh lip colors. Choose pinks, oranges, and bright reds, to reflect the lively, colorful spirit of the season. Or choose natural nudes for a perfect “I’m not wearing any makeup” look!
