Simple Summer Make Up

A little summer glow goes a long way, so we like our holiday beauty to be all about radiant skin and just the right amount of make-up for a barely there bronzed look. Laura shares her four-step routine for the perfect simple summer face.

Summer make-up is all about radiant skin, so start with a lightweight moisturiser, followed by a touch of tinted moisturiser. We can’t recommend Erborian CC Crème enough; it works for all skin tones so you needn’t worry about colour matching. It will instantly smooth out your skin getting rid of any blotches, giving you better results than any camera filter on the market!

Follow with an all-over-the-face application of bronzer – don’t bother with blush, which may make you look sunburnt, instead focus on the cheeks with a little extra bronzer to give them more definition. We love Bobbi Brown’s Natural Bronzer; it goes on super-matt, which is much better than all-over shimmer (we prefer to apply that to eyes later).

To achieve that golden, sun-kissed look, we love Charlotte Tilbury’s Eyes To Mesmerize in Bette. It’s a cream eyeshadow that comes in a little pot – just dab your finger in the silky cream and swish it over your eyelids, staying as close to the centre of your eyelid as possible for a super-natural wet look. You might like to follow with a coat of mascara or just a quick eyelash curl for an even more natural look.

Although we love a red lip, we prefer to  give our lips a barely there touch in the summer with a nude lipstick. Victoria Beckham has made an art of achieving a nude lip and her Nude Spice Matte Lipstick gives just the right amount of colour and moisture.
