As the sun gets more intense, nailing your makeup routine becomes crucial. If you don’t want your makeup melting off by 12pm, that is.
Global makeup artist for Napoleon Perdis, Shev Kelly, has prepped us with a step-by-step guide to creating the ultimate summer face. Cream products for the win.
Step 1: Prep and prime
Protect your face, neck and décolletage from the sun with a high, broad-spectrum SPF then prep your skin with an extra boost of hydration and subtle warmth using a bronzing primer. Keep your lips chap-free using a clear lip treatment/balm.
Step 2: Lashes and brows
Step 3: Base
Step 4: Cheeks
Step 5: Eyes
Create a beach-friendly golden glow using a cream highlighter in gold or bronze. Tap over the eyelids and inner corner of the eye.
Step 6: Lips
Add a hint of colour to your lips using a pink cheek stain tapped on with your fingertips.
