Let’s start with beauty trends.

Face jewels and gems, festival season – we’re looking at you!
Glossy skin, as expected the dreamy ‘your skin but better’ remains for another season (no shock there).
Now we know what’s trending, let’s discuss how to actually keep these beauty looks flawless all day, everyday!
Which type of makeup is best in summer?
Whilst the clean girl inspo is starting to slow down in terms of fashion, it’s most definitely at it’s peak in terms of beauty.
The simple bushy brow and light skin tint finish is where it’s at this summer season.

Overall you’re aiming for lightweight beauty products that deliver a fresh everyday face.
How do you wear makeup in the summer?
The key to wearing and also ensuring your makeup stays all day during in summer is both your beauty prep and of course, setting spray.
You’ll want to use a lightweight primer alongside your daily SPF to allow your makeup to last throughout the heat.
It’s also good to use a setting spray as this will help hold your makeup all day.
Safe summer skin plus a flawless face? It’s a yes from us!
Fake tan is another easy option when wanting an effortless summer makeup routine.
You guessed it, our girl Molly-Mae and her iconic tanning drops!
Simply add a few drops to your regular moisturiser for a hint of colour.
This also brings us to the question of, should you wear foundation in the summer?
Overall it’s up to you and whichever makeup option you prefer/feel most comfortable with.
Whilst a skin tint or just fresh faced with a hint of tan can work for some, we know it’s not possible for all.
Maybe it’s a case of waking up with a breakout (which most definitely wasn’t on the agenda) or wanting to cover up acne scars.
Here are our top three summer picks when it comes to the best foundation for coverage during the warmer months!
Let’s Talk Lashes
If natural lashes are where it’s at then you’ll of 100% searched, what helps eyelashes grow faster?
Let’s face it, who hasn’t? We are all dreaming of our natural lashes looking like a fresh set of lash extensions.
We’d recommend starting with a lash serum – whilst this is no quick fix as it usually takes around 3 months until you notice any difference.

Last But Never Least, Lips!
Just like skin, we loveeee a glossy finish during the summer, especially when it defines and give a freshly plumed look but, which plumping lip gloss is best?
When it comes to the best lip plumping gloss it’s more about personal preference, do you love the tingling feeling or just prefer a high pigment gloss that gives the illusion of fuller lips?
