Here are our top tips on how to ensure you look and feel fabulous in the heat!
Up the SPF
Ideally you should protect your skin from damaging UV rays all year round, but during the Summer it’s even more important to do so. You don’t have to slather on heavy-duty sun cream to do this, many brands now have SPF in their facial moisturisers that are lightweight and non-greasy, so you won’t even realise you’re wearing any!
When we’re hot, make-up can have a tendency to slide around our face a little, meaning by the end of the day we’re looking more melted than marvellous!
After your SPF, use our Velvet Perfection Foundation Primer to keep your skin looking satiny smooth whilst fresh and natural all day. Water based, it acts as a buffer to toxic outside elements and eases the application of your foundation or tinted moisturiser. It is an essential tool for make-up artist results with minimum fuss.
At Savvy Style, we swear by our Colour Me Beautiful Morning Light Foundation for most of the year, but come the Summer it’s our Tinted Moisturiser that we are wearing everyday and packing in the suitcase! For a super-lightweight feel and extra hydration, you can’t go wrong with this fabulous product as it’s packed with conditioners and has light diffusing properties to unify your skin tone and correct imperfections. Plus #15 protection!
Next, pop some of our Eye Base underneath your eye shadow to prep your eyes for smoother eye-shadow application that will ensure your colour holds for hours with no creasing.
This fabulous little product can also be worn alone if you wish, as it goes on sheer, allowing you to subtly brighten your eyes for a natural daytime look. Tip! Works a treat under lipsticks too!
Usually a lipstick lover? Us too! However, we hate having to reapply it over and over. Solution? Our new Colour Renew lipstick literally "melts on your lips" with self renewing spheres to give you that "just applied" look for hours longer. Gorgeous range of colours too!
Looking for something a little lighter during the Summer? Try a lip gloss for a subtle pop of colour and understated look this season. Our Lip Gloss is perfect to pop in your beach bag to take you from the pool to the cocktail bar!
This Summer citrus hues are on everyone's lips. Which is the best one for you?
Sometimes you feel a wee bit too hot and get a wee bit too shiny! Our Mineral based Loose Powder works a treat at keeping you fresh while stopping all breakthroughs. A soft natural matte finish which conditions and provides antioxidant protection.
If you are looking for a healthier golden glow, try our Beige!
