This season’s summer makeup trend is all about a minimalist, natural look so your summer beauty kit needs a makeover. Gone are the days of heavy make-up, or the need for it.

Summer Fresh Makeup

With a growing focus on keeping skin healthy so it looks beautiful, rather than using products to achieve this look, we are seeing more and more bare faces, with make-up used to highlight your favourite feature. Think a plain dress with great accessories.

Having said that, a little coverage is necessary sometimes and so there are great summer make up products to conceal small imperfections without masking your face.

 

KEEP IT LIGHT

Nude By Nature Mineral Powder

Mineral powders are great for summer as they are light-weight, reduce shine and even out skin tone whilst still looking incredibly natural.

Natural mineral powders are also non-comedenic, which means they won’t block up your pores and rinse away easily with a good cleanser meaning no nasty residue is left behind. Essential for your summer beauty kit.

Our picks: Nude By Nature Natural Cover, Youngblood Mineral Radiance, Becca Cosmetics Mineral Foundation Powder

BB Cream Gives Luminescent Skin

KEEP IT BRIGHT

The newest kid on the block in the summer makeup world is BB (Beauty Balm) Creams. These provide another kind lightweight, natural coverage whilst also working to brighten the complexion so no summer beauty kit should be without this.

They work to even skin texture and have a light reflecting quality that gives skin luminescent, dewy look, enhancing rather than masking your shin.

Our picks: Nude By Nature 5-in-1 BB Miracle Cream, Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream, Bloom Mineral Plus Sheer Mineral Tint

 

MAKE IT JUST RIGHT

Now for the ‘accessorisies’ for your summer beauty kit. The natural look of summer makeup doesn’t mean there is no colour or boldness to be had. During the day the fresh natural look is key but at night or for a party accessorising the natural look works like a charm.

A Bright Red Lip Accessories a Fresh Face

A bright red or pink lip on a fresh face puts adds some stunning summer colour to your look or bold black wing on an otherwise nude eyelid makes your eyes pop. Want to keep it simple but still add colour? Add a touch of mineral blush or cheek tint to define your cheekbones and enhance your natural summer glow.

Our picks: Napoleon Perdis China Doll Eyeliner in ‘Equinox’, M.A.C. Lipstick in ‘Dangerous’, Becca Beach Cheek Tint in Watermelon, Bloom Pure Mineral Blush in “Barrier Reef’

Summer makeup is all about balance so make sure your summer beauty kit has these essentials and you will nail it.  Boom.
