Dewy skin is in. It’s not shine babes, this face is glossy. Summer ’17 is about embracing the sheen. When the humidity is high, we all end up ‘dewy’ anyway. You can’t beat the heat.
Forget traditional beauty advice – oil-free moisturiser, primer, powder. Forgo full coverage. The best summer makeup tip? Wear less of it. Fix a five minute fresh face that’s quick and easy to reapply on long summer days.
IT Cosmetics CC Cream, £30. Lighter in consistency than foundation, but with good coverage. Natural looking dewy finish, with SPF 50.
Brighten undereyes with a light, liquid concealer, like the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer, £5.99.
Use the excellent No7 Cream Blush and Highlighters, £10, to add colour and glow. Dupes for more pricey rivals, easy and speedy.
Mascara of choice. Waterproof if you get smudges. Clinique High Impact Mascara, £18, gives natural looking length and separation.
Tinted lip balm. The Benefit Posiebalm, £15.50, adds the perfect hint of pink.
Creams, balms, sheen. A light, laid-back, low-maintenance five minute face for long summer days.
