Hot Summer Nights: 10 Minute Makeup

Best Summer Makeup Products

Fresh base, lots of lash, bold lip. Not too heavy, not too done. A super quick makeup look that leaves more time for long cold drinks on hot summer nights. 

Update your Long Summer Days look from day to night with five makeup products in just ten minutes. 

IT Cosmetics CC Cream

1-2 Minutes:

Reapply your base. Sticking to cream products by day means you can reapply without it getting cakey. Use a brush with the IT Cosmetics CC Cream to get greater coverage, but skip powder to keep it looking fresh. 

Clarins Instant Concealer

3-4 Minutes:

Top up your base with an illuminating concealer, like the Clarins Instant Concealer. Use under the eyes and then to highlight – cheekbones, centre of forehead, bridge of nose, Cupid’s bow, brow bones. 

Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzing Mousse

5-6 Minutes:

Add a little definition and colour with a contour or bronzer product in a cream formula. The Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Mousse is the ultimate summer bronzer with it’s longwear formula and cream to powder finish. 

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso

7-8 Minutes: 

A bare face and bright lip is a classic summer look, though not always a low maintenance one. Hot nights and cold drinks can turn a bold lip into a big smudgey mess. The matte finish of a liquid lipstick not only keeps colour in check, but looks modern. For the boldest and brightest of summer lip shades, try Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso, a fiery orangey red. 

Soap & Glory Thick & Fast Mascara

9-10 Minutes:

Leave lids bare but go big on lashes. Length and separation are key. Keep the eyelash look clean not clumpy. The Thick & Fast High Definition Mascara from Soap & Glory is ideal for long defined lashes. 

Five products, ten minutes. Little effort, big impact.
