Summer beauty is a little lighter than any other time of the year as the warmer weather requires us to rethink our formulas. Heavier bases and dark shades make way for lighter formulas and brighter pops of colour, and we couldn’t be happier.
Heavy foundation for tinted moisturiser
Swap your heavy and full coverage foundation for a lighter formula, such as a tinted moisturiser or BB cream. Your skin sweats a lot more in the warmer weather, so you need a base which lets it breathe, so chances of breakouts are reduced.
One of our favourite products is the Chantecaille Just Skin Tinted Moisturiser, which has the added benefit of an SPF 15. Super lightweight yet builable, it contains a botanical blend of extracts which feed the skin with nutrition as it evens out its tone.
Alternatively, if you suffer from acne or pigmentation and do feel better wearing a fuller coverage foundation, try one which has a radiant and lightweight finish, such as the Estée Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup. It has the same wear longevity as the original, but leaves a glowing and lightweight luminosity behind.
