Hot Weather Beauty Tips
When the temperatures of summer start soaring, it's time to re-evaluate your daily beauty routine to keep you looking and feeling fresh. Our expert makeup artists share their top tips for daily skincare and makeup with subtle, shine-free results that are comfortable, breathable and long-lasting.
Skincare At Night - Keep It Simple
On the hottest days, pare back your routine - your skin will thank you for it. On hot and humid nights, use just a couple of drops of Superglow Serum, powered with Vitamin C and a fusion of natural extracts and innovative active molecules, all in a light-weight breathable formula. The backbone of your skincare regime, use daily at night to boost your skin's health, tautness and inner glow.
Skincare In The Morning - Go Oil-Free
During the day, opt for light, oil-free hydrator Rose Dew A multi-tastking moisturiser and makeup primer in one with Hyaluronic Acid and Aloe Vera to smooth and firm the skin with a weightless and breathable finish.
Be sure to apply any sunscreen well before Rose Dew, letting each layer sink in fully before moving on. This will enhance product performance and the appearance of your skin.
Complexion – Opt for Water-Based Formulas
Sheer Balancing Foundation offers a light, water-based formula that will keep skin feeling and looking fresh. Buildable light to medium coverage creates an even tone and makes the skin look brighter and healthier, whilst feeling like you're not wearing anything! Like a tinted moisturiser, but less shiny – this is our makeup artists’ favourite for a natural summer complexion.
Technique - Use Less Product
If you use foundation but find it looks 'made up' or 'shiny' in the summer, consider reducing the amount of product you use by half, then blending and sheering it out fully. (You can always add more!) Our Buffing Brush makes it easier to blend your base, and use less for more natural and comfortable results.
Shine Control - Mineral Powder
Powder often gets a bad rap, but we encourage you to look again - our ultra-fine Silk Touch formula in a handbag-friendly compact will ensure a shine-free finish. It’s a sheer translucent mineral powder to set makeup, gently mattify, and balance the complexion, which lasts superbly in the heat.
Freshen Up – Facial Spritz
Simple, but oh-so effective, our gentle hydrating and soothing Rose Hydramist with Pure Rose Otto is ideal for a fuss-free cool down, that calms and refines the skin at the same time. Use Rose Hydramist under and over make-up to refresh your look and your mood as soon as you feel your temperature rising, this on-the-go product is a must for the hot summer months – and for your beach bag.
