Summer In The City
Those Summer Nights…
The perfect time of year to enjoy a catch-up, boogie with pals commencing… oh those summer nights! Summer in the city can be a little bit temperamental when it comes to the weather – however, we’re here today to recommend which products and methods will see you through a particularly hot-to-trot day, with makeup that still slays.
#1 Setting Spray all day. We’re talking EVERY step of the way. Spray your beauty blender before applying foundation for the ultimate long-wearing base. Spray it again before blending in your cream contour and cream blush. Spray it after applying your powders and brow products too. The only step to avoid spraying after is mascara (unless it’s waterproof, then you can). We recommend using our Fresh Face Fixation Setting Spray (only £4.99) for the ultimate day to night staying power. Pro Tip: Whilst doing your skincare, before you apply your makeup, put your setting spray in the fridge! Once you’re ready to use the setting spray it will be extremely cooling, a lovely bonus during a heatwave. A bonus is that the setting sprays are quite small, easy to fit in your mini-Y2K bag on a night out! 😉
#2 Set and Smooth. Whether you’re going for a dewy or a matte look, a little or a lot of powder products, a good translucent powder is key to keeping your base products from moving around your face. Apply a small amount with a little powder brush to areas where you’ve applied concealer for a light layer or apply a lot with a damp beauty blender to bake the concealed areas for a fuller coverage. Why don’t you try our Ready Set Smooth Translucent Powder (only £5.99)? Why don’t you take the setting spray out and your bestie takes the powder… sharing is caring! <3
#3 Cream Then Powder. More important than ever in this heat, is setting your cream products. If your skin type can handle not setting your cream products, and dewy is what you’re after then you don’t have to do this. But for a gorgeous matte finish that will keep your products in place all day, cream then powder is key. Our Mini Cream Eyeshadow Palettes (£6.99) are a perfect example of this – pigmented beyond your wildest dreams, these create a perfect base for eyeshadow lovers to be confident that their time and effort won’t just sweat off. Set with translucent powder or a similar powder colour to the shadows you’ve used, and enjoy your makeup look all day and night! The club is alive with the sound of… happy eyeshadow wearing queens!
