Summer Sun Make Up Tips...

Summer, like winter, requires its own special beauty tricks!

Rather than using a foundation can can feel a little heavy in the summer heat, try a tinted moisturiser to cover up any rednes ! Always choose one that has a SPF, most have an SPF of 15 to protect your skin.

You can now get tinted sun screen products for your face that will have a higher SPF. These are better for holidays as they will protect you skin from harmful UV rays.

Dont be afraid of shine dewy skin is gorgeous. Don't overpowder your face because you're afraid it's a grease pit. Instead, try blotting papers.

Go for natural colors on your eyes and lips — pink, peach, gold, and bronze offset a summery skin tone. Avoid anything too sticky or creamy, after all, it is in summer that your eyeshadow becomes a greasy pool in your eyelid creases.... Plus it will attract sand and break down faster in the sun.

In terms of mascara, i'd opt for a waterproof one to keep them looking longer and thicker even whatever you are doing! Us if you're anything like me the sun makes my eyes water and i end up wiping half of it off!

Tip: If you find sun screens clog your pores and cause break outs, go for an oil free product.
