The sun is out, the days are long, and you’re looking forward to a glorious summer of looking totally gorgeous. If you want to make sure you stay fabulously radiant all through summer, then make sure you’ve got your hands on these essential beauty must-haves!
What summer beauty essentials do you need for this years heat waves?
- Pre-tanning prep
Before you can step out looking like a bronze goddess, prep your skin first! That means you need to brush away that nasty cold-weather, dull and dry skin. An all over exfoliating scrub is perfect – choose something with lots of natural oils or butters with it, to moisturise your skin and leave you perfectly soft.
- Multitask like a pro
You don’t want to slather on tons of makeup in the heat – but that doesn’t mean you need to retire your makeup brush sets until autumn either! A cream rouge is a brilliant multitasker – use it to give your lips a subtle hint of colour, and your cheeks a delicate blush. You can even give your eyelids a delicate glow, for a bright and pretty effect. Use the brushes from a professional makeup brush set to multitask to best effect.
- Instant highlighter
To get those beautiful high cheekbones with a sundrenched effect, choose a radiant highlighter. Use a small brush to accent your cheeks and brow bones, to get a lovely, gentle dewy complexion all day. Warm, golden tones are ideal for olive toned and darker skin, while a fresh, cool highlighter is perfect for accentuating a paler complexion. You can even mix it into with a tinted moisturiser for an all-over glow.
- Summer pout
Whether you prefer to rock a beautiful, natural pout in the summer, or love to go bold and bright – choosing a lip colour to see you through the summer is an absolute essential. There’s no easier way to transform your look from day to night – simply apply your favourite lippy, and you’re ready for summer night drinks, barbeques with friends, and al fresco dinners beneath the stars. To keep your lips looking perfect, use a lip brush – you can find them in Nanshy’s makeup brush sets, and the few extra seconds you spend to apply will totally be worth it.
- Get set
Hate looking clammy and sweaty in the heat? Want the flawless face for all the weddings and parties you’ve got lined up this summer? One answer – setting powder. This finishing powder will keep your makeup in place and more importantly, keep it looking fresh and dewy, no matter how high the temperatures spike. Use a kabuki brush – you’ll find one in a professional makeup brush set – to apply and ensure there is no excess powder on the skin.
