Follow these easy steps for a flawless summer look!
1. Start off with a good sunscreen!
We love La Roshe Posay Clear or Tinted Sunscreen. It’s grease-proof, sheer, and gives you great coverage – SPF 50 is all you need!
Start off with a good face wash, getting all the excess oil and dirt out of your pores. Dry off with a clean cotton towel. Then apply the summer necessity: SUNSCREEN.
Useful info: It protects us from the sun’s harmful UV rays and in the long run, helps minimize wrinkles and blemishes that may be a result of the rays.
2. Apply The Base! Step By Step
We love Estee Lauder’s The Illuminator. It gives a smooth texture & glow. Also, it’s light when applied on the skin, perfect for the summer heat- a tad pricey, but a little bit goes a looong way!
For the summers, I like keeping the base lighter and aim for a natural glow.
- Apply a primer to achieve a smooth, even texture. Keep it light, just a touch will do.
- After the primer is set, I recommend going easy with the foundation.
3. Foundation Glows
Personally, during summers I switch to full coverage BB or CC creams. They carry a light SPF as well which is great for sun protection – always! I like using the ELF Cosmetics BB Cream or the Estee Lauder Double Wear All Day Glow.
Since Double Wear Glow seems to be out of stock in Pakistan at present, we give you
4. A Light Blush and Highlight!
Ok now it’s time for the blush! Take a light or baby pink shade – personal preference: L’Oreal Paris True Match Blush) and apply it with an upward stroke.
5. Now the eyes
Mascara does it for Super Luscious Lashes to carry off that ‘No Makeup’ Look! And no one does it better than Colossal Volume Express Mascara!
For the eyes, make sure to prime first. Then take a neutral shade, preferably a skin tone nude, and apply it gently on to the eyelids. Top it off with a generous layer of mascara.
You can also try L’Oreal Paris Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara. Which one’s your fav?
6. Last But Not The Least … Finish It Off With A Lip Tint!
Go with a pink lip tint or a light tone lip gloss to add that glossy effect!
