summer-proof makeup look

Who doesn’t want their makeup to last ALLL day long? I’ve created the ultimate makeup routine that means once I’ve applied my makeup in the morning, I’m good to go for the rest of the day – the only thing I touch up is my lipstick! Summer proof makeup is all about using the right products and a few clever makeup hacks to set your look in place. Here’s how I do my ultimate summer proof makeup look:

Your Step-by-Step Guide for the Ultimate Summer-Proof Makeup Look:

Step 1. Start by applying Complexion Perfection Pre-Makeup Base all over your face using your fingertips. If you tend to be oily, use the  Matte Perfection Primer to mattify and keep oil under control.

Tip: If you have combo skin, apply a mattifying primer to your T-zone and cheeks and use your usual primer everywhere else.

Step 2. Apply N.Y.M.P.H. all over your face using the Buff & Blend Brush.

Step 3. Apply 1 pump of #FauxFilter Foundation all over your face with the Buff & Blend Brush. For a flawless finish, follow by bouncing a damp Basic B Blending Sponge all over your face.

Step 4. Select a shade of Overachiever Concealer that is one or two shades lighter than your skin tone to brighten your face. Focus the concealer on your under eyes, and apply a small amount to your chin, the center of your nose and forehead, then blend it out using a damp Basic B Blending Sponge.

Step 5. Apply Tantour under the cheekbones, around the chin and forehead, and blend to desired bronzed effect using the shape end of the Sculpt & Shape Brush. (Check out how to contour to flatter your face shape here).

Tip: For a more sculpted look, choose a slightly deeper shade of Tantour.

Step 6. Set your look by using the bake end of our Bake & Blend Brush to apply a thick layer of Easy Bake Powder under the eyes. Leave it to set for 3 minutes, then use the blend end of the brush to dust off the excess powder. While you wait for your powder to set, dust a layer of powder across your T-zone and smile lines using the blend end of the Bake & Blend Brush.

Step 7. Complete the look by spraying our Basic B Blending Sponge with Resting Boss Face, then dip it into the creamy melted strobe shade of the 3D Highlighter Palette and bounce it all over your face to highlight, illuminate, and set your makeup.

Summer Proof Makeup Tips:
