When it comes to make-up, many of us tend to pare down our routine in the summer. Enjoy this natural, easy and pretty make-up look.
Start with a cleanser and hydrating spray so you have a clean and fresh canvas to work on. Apply serum, moisturiser and a sunscreen for that poolside lounging. For evening cocktails, add a highlighting liquid to your décolletage, arms and legs.
Using a couple of drops of serum primer on the back of your hand, work in a little Aleph concealer/foundation so it becomes dewy and sheer, perfect for this summer look. Set through the T-zone and under eyes with the Aleph translucent powder, allowing the high points to appear dewy and fresh.
Dab a little Aleph cheek/lip tint in Ascend onto your cheeks and pat into your skin with your fingertips to create a “glow from within”. Add a touch of Aleph Radiance Moon to the same area to create a dewy sheen.
Apply Aleph eye pigment over the lid with a flat brush and blend out with your fingertip and under the outer corner of the eye. Then apply Aleph Radiance Sun through the centre of the lid. Curl lashes and add mascara using a tubular waterproof mascara for those hot summer days.
Keep brows minimal by using a styling wax to create a soft no-fuss brushed-up feel and to help keep in place all day.
Use your favourite shade to add just a hint of colour so as not to look overdone. Apply with a fingertip. I used two shades from Aleph called Ascend (peachy coral) and Grounded (soft nude).
Finish with a setting spray to keep your skin feeling hydrated. I used Hourglass Veil Soft Focus Setting Spray which is lightweight, hydrating and sets make-up for 24 hours.
