Summer is just around the corner, and we know we’ve all been looking forward to the sun, sea and bronzed skin that comes with it.

With summer comes spontaneous trips, get-togethers, and parties. With summer comes the excuse to dress up, or dress down – if you’re sunbathing.

For those who wish to change their looks with the seasons, we have some fantastic summer looks for you to try out!

Prepping the skin

Preparing the skin is important, especially in the summer climate where the skin will need that extra bit of TLC. Let’s go through this process first.


Initially before applying the makeup products to the face, you’d start off with the initial cleansing process, for that you could use our daily polishing cleanser.

It’s easy to use, simply tap a bit of the powder out into your hand, and add water, rubbing until it foams up, then use it as you’d use a normal cleanser, this will clean your pores of any dead skin prior to the makeup application.

Our daily polishing cleanser is travel-friendly and suitable for all skin types.

We recommend two of our products for the moisturising process, our Oil Free Sunscreen with SPF 40, perfect for moisturising the skin as well as offering sun protection from both UVA and UVB rays.

We also recommend our Balancing Moisture Remedy moisturiser product, which offers exceptional moisturisation, hydrating the skin thoroughly, for those that aren’t going to be in the sun, but need to hydrate following a long day in the sun!

Our Balancing Moisture Remedy is suitable for all skin types.

For the base...

Now that your skin is prepped, before we move on to our summer makeup looks, we’ll quickly guide you on how to apply the base.

Start off with our tinted primer

We want to first apply primer to the skin, to allow for easy application of the products layered over the primer.

Tinted Primer SPF30

We suggest our natural Tinted Primer, which has an SPF of 30 and is the perfect primer suitable for acne-prone skin.

The application of foundation

Depending on your skin type, you’re going to need a type of foundation best suited to you.

Our pressed base mineral powder foundation is ideal for these who suffer from sensitive skin, rosacea breakouts, as well as for those with acne-prone skin, as it is non-comedogenic.

Pressed Base

This option would be best for those suffering from oily skin. Our powder foundation is also rich in minerals and free of talc and harmful parabens.

Alternatively, for those who wish to get a little bit more out of their foundation, we suggest our Satin Cream Foundation; This has a blend of antioxidant and Vitamins A, C, and E as well as Green Tea extract, to help nourish the skin, although the pressed base option would be better for oily skin sufferers.

Beige Light

Now onto the concealer

We’ll then follow up with the application of a concealer product, which in this case we’d recommend either our Oil Free Camouflage (suitable for oily skin sufferers) or our Under-Eye Concealer, both helping to conceal hyperpigmentation, rosacea and dark circles.
