Summer makeup looks perfect the sunkissed look

639 673 Vanity Van

First in our blog series of summer looks our team have come up with some simple summer makeup hints and tips so you can recreate the latest looks.

The key to summer makeup starts with that elusive lit-from-within dewy skin glow. We all want it, and we’ve all at some point or another tried to get it by slathering on glitter filled makeup products that promise a J low glow – but end up looking more like a disco ball!. Dewy skin looks natural and youthful – to master this look you will need a good quality foundation and an excellent skincare regime. Ensure you exfoliate, use a hydrating moisturiser and drink plenty of water.

summer makeupBegin by using a glowing primer to ensure the skin glows from underneath your foundation. Sparingly apply a lightweight foundation or bb cream using a tapping motion and a damp beauty blender – blend, blend and blend some more.

For areas that require more coverage apply a liquid concealer dabbing gently with a finger for perfect coverage. Set any shiny areas with a translucent pressed powder. Add some liquid bronzer to areas that naturally catch the sun to warm up the skin and give a super sun-kissed glow. Finish with some rosy peachy pink cream blush to the apple of the cheeks and dab the same colour onto the lips for a natural lip stain. A touch of highlighter on areas which catch the light such as the tops of the cheekbones, bridge of the nose and just above the brows and cupids bow will offer that sun-kissed shimmer – however, remember for this look less is more!

Apply an eyeshadow primer to your lids before applying any eye makeup – without a primer your shadow will crease. For an easy eye look, apply a wash of shimmery eyeshadow all over the lids, use a neutral, bronze tone, finishing the look with your favourite mascara.

Set the look with a finishing spray to hold the summer glow in place for those balmy evenings. Allowing your inner beauty to shine through…

Even with the pressure of her role as a royal to be and planning a royal wedding Meghan Markle manages to keep her skin radiant and glowing and her natural make up look on flick. We have delved into Meghan’s beauty routine to try and understand her secrets and can reveal some of her favourite makeup and beauty products…

1. Kate Somerville Quench hydrating face serum – whether she’s hanging out with Prince Harry or spending Christmas dinner with Queen Elizabeth II, Meghan Markle always has a glow about her.

2. Laura Mercia illuminating primer. – Meghan doesn’t wear foundation unless she’s filming so uses this cult product after moisturiser to give her skin a dewy glow. Lydia Sellers her former hair and make up artists said even when she has to be made up she has been known to ask ‘Can we just make sure my freckles are peeking through? I don’t want a ton of foundation,'” so she used the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation with a Beautyblender to create her dewy look.

3. Diorshow Iconic Mascara – Meghan eyes are arguably one of her best features, and in order to accentuate them she swears by using an eyelash curler first to open up the eyes then lashings of Dior mascara adding volume and definition.

4. Charlotte Tilbury’s matte revolution lipstick – in very Victoria, is Meghans go to. Its a beautiful natural taupe nude shade to compliment her glowing skin. These days for that extra royal touch she also loves to add a little shine to her lips. We cannot wait to see what look she goes for at the Royal Wedding.

5. Nars Orgasm blusher – Megan even has her naughty side – she once told Beautybanter that she can’t live without Nars’ Orgasm, the “perfect rosy flush tone that brightens the face.” We love this about her!

6. Tea tea oil – Meghan revealed she can’t travel without it! It’s not the most glamorous thing, but if you get a cut, a mosquito bite, a sudden breakout, no matter what it is ‘it’s my little cure all Meghan said.

7. Kerestase relax treatment – Hair wise the press went wild when she wore a low messy bun that looked like she had done it herself for her engagement photos – we love her relaxed style. Her hair and make up artist used Oribes volumizing spray to prep the hair and give it a boost and a Kerestase relax treatment to keep things smooth.

So for this weekends Royal Wedding celebrations in honour of this natural beauty bring out your inner princess Megan and rock a natural dewy look with stunning voluminous lashes, a rosy flush and nude shiny lips.
