10 Absolute Best Makeup Products You Need This Summer

Sometimes it can be hard finding the best makeup products you need for the summer that will both make you look radiant and summer ready, but also long wearing and durable! Makeup mishaps are a big no no in summer, so here are 10 makeup products you need this summer to avoid any makeup mares and will have you looking amazing AF, at ALL times!

1. Tinted SPF Lip Balm

A tinted lip balm, WITH SPF (!!), is the perfect addition to your summer makeup bag must haves. Not only will your lips look radiant and hydrated, but they’ll also be being protected against the summer heat. This is super important as the skin on your lips is very fragile and sensitive therefore prone to burning, so lather up!

2. Tinted Moisturiser

Having a little less coverage during the summer months is ideal to combat the cakey, sweaty base that the summer heat can sometimes cause when applying layer after layer of foundation, concealer and setting powder. Applying a thin, hydrating and protective tinted moisturiser during summer will leave you looking super healthy and glowy as well as reducing chances of breakouts! (thick foundation base + summer sweat = skincare disaster!)

3. Sunscreen!

Again, protecting your skin is super important. Applying a small amount of sunscreen to your face before applying any makeup will not only keep you protected throughout the day but it will also act like a natural highlighter, win win!

4. Bronzer

Dusting a light coating of bronzer across your natural contour lines will give you that sun-kissed, “did you just get back from a holiday?!” glow you’ve been yearning for all winter. Bronzers with a natural shimmer in them can really boost your skin game, giving you a healthy looking beaming base. Dust a little over the bridge of your nose to achieve that slightly sunburnt look, to truly trick everyone into thinking you just got back from a vacation!

5. Brown Mascara

Using a dark brown mascara, as opposed to the regular old black one you’ve been using during the winter, will give you much more natural looking eyelashes and won’t look strange with the more sparsely applied base, which sometimes black mascara can.

6. Highlighter

Applying a natural champagne coloured highlighter to fairer skin, or a slightly more yellow toned highlighter on darker skin tones, across the natural high points on your face will truly breath so much life into your face and give you the sun-kissed glow you want to achieve. Applying highlighter as well as a light dusting of bronzer will also make you look snatched AF!

7. Primer

A generous spritz of primer across your face before applying your base will be the ultimate weapon against melting makeup in the summer heat whilst also hydrating and soothing your skin if you’ve been in the sun a little too long.
