3 Step ‘No-Makeup, Makeup’ For A Natural Summer Glow
Our guide to ‘barely-there’ natural summer makeup, created with some of our favourite makeup products with added skin benefitting ingredients. Keep on reading to discover how we create our best sun-kissed bronze and the summer lip tints we’ve always got packed in our bags!
Your 'barely there' base.
We never like our face makeup to look ‘cakey’ or heavy, and especially not in the hot summer months, it just doesn’t feel good on the skin! For a glowy summer look, we use a small amount mixed in with our favourite moisturiser or serum. To prep the skin, we’d recommend using a hydrating serum before makeup, something like Oio Lab’s Multi-Dimensional Hydrating Facial Serum.
Otherwise all of the serums below are amazing at hydrating and setting you up with the perfect base for a no makeup glow!
Using Hydrosols For Extra Hydration and Glow!
If you prefer not to layer up your base makeup, simply prep the skin with a spritz of natural floral water – we love these ones from Vertly andBe Here Farm! Hydrosols contain the same aromatherapeutic benefits as their essential oil counterpart, however, they are almost entirely water based and can therefore be applied liberally to the entire body though we use it for our faces mostly! Each hydrosol provides a generous dose of hydration to the skin along with all of the beneficial properties the plant is known for. They are wonderful to keep hydrated in the summer and get you all the nutrients of the plants.
And finally, a hint of lip colour.
For us, summer makeup has to be easy and effortless. We want a lip colour we can apply when we’re out and about without needing to check it in a mirror! To nourish and heal the lips (with a hint of colour) we recommend Vertly’s lip tints. Their balm like formula is super creamy and formulated from organic ingredients. Whether you prefer a coral, red, mauve, or nude shade, Henne will have one to suit!
It’s worth mentioning, conventional lipsticks are full of scary ingredients. Read more about that here! Do your body and our Earth a favour, and try Juni Cosmetics’ amazing organic lipstick range. Not only are they pigmented and creamy, but they are ultra-hydrating. Juni lipsticks are formulated with argan oil, which is wonderful for hydrating and protecting the lips – perfect for all year round.
