Barefaced beauty: How to get that killer complexion this summer season

Where in this wonderful world is your vacay taking you this summer? Wherever your adventure resides, there's nothing more important than keeping your skin healthy, happy and looking flawless. How, you may ask? We'll let you in to some top secrets to that killer complexion this summer season.

READY. SET. SUMMER.

If you’re spending a few hours in the sun, it’s important to protect your skin. However, you shouldn’t have to swap your foundation for a greasy, pimple-producing sunscreen. Let your skin shine through with a sheer, lightweight, dewy complexion perfecter - we recommend bareMinerals COMPLEXION RESCUE™ TINTED HYDRATING GEL CREAM

The powerful hydration meets healthy-looking coverage. The best of a BB, a CC, and a tinted moisturiser...with a 215% increase in skin hydration after just one week*. With mineral-based SPF30, this is great summer coverup if you have skin that burns easily. It contains water-encapsulations, which gives skin an instant shot of hydration without silicones or oils to get in the way, so dehydrated summer skin will look instantly plump and dewy.

Create a soft glow on your cheeks with a warm, radiant cream color, such as Nars The Multiple in Portofino - Nars' iconic innovation, the multi-purpose stick for eyes, cheeks, lips and body. Its unique creamy formula and sheer color blends effortlessly to create shimmering accents; contours or dynamic highlights on all skin tones.  

Enhance your brow, but don’t make it look sculpted – remember the idea is to look barefaced goddess. Instead of Anastasia Beverly Hills' ever-famous DIPBROW® POMADE, opt for their award-winning ultra-slim, retractable pencil that creates precise, hair-like strokes. Brow Wiz®'s fine tip to spot-fill areas where brow hair is sparse, and the custom spooley end to blend for a flawless finish.

Finally, enhance your Eyelash Logic results with a waterproof mascara that packs a punch - Clinique's High Impact Waterproof Mascara, this mascara is a forever favourite of the nation. It doesn’t dry out lashes or slip off in high heat like many other high-end brands.

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT

The foods you eat should be packed full of vitamins and minerals! When food is nutritionally rich, your skins will be healthy, happy and will thank you for it with a killer complexion. Unsure on what to eat? Give this gorgeous Very Berry Smoothie a whirl!

Most importantly, have fun and show off your fabulous self this summer in the sun. There's nothing more gorgeous than a lady with confidence! ❤️

Why your skincare routine may be damaging your lashes…

Women around the globe rely on the magic of mascara to open up the eyes and define the eyelashes. However, many are not removing their makeup properly, or worse, forget to take their mascara off altogether; potentially causing irreversible lash follicle damage.

 

Eyelashes, like normal hair on your scalp, can dry up and become brittle if proper TLC is not given to them; this can lead to breakage, loss of lashes or the development of weaker roots. However, that is the least of your worries, failure to remover makeup can cause infections since sleeping with your mascara on heightens the probability of dirt/bacteria getting trapped within the eye area.

 

Before going to sleep, it has been said that washing your face is not enough as most eye makeup is produced with immense staying-power due to consumer demand. It is important to remember when removing eye makeup that there is no rush or any need to tug on the eyelashes in order to remove the mascara. Simply take a cotton ball and an eye makeup remover or, if you want something more organic, olive oil, then gently rub on to your lash area. Always remember to use different cotton balls per eye area to lessen the risk of spreading impurities or infection and use slow, gentle strokes instead of rubbing vigorously.

 

For lashes that make a statement, applying Eyelash Logic to the lash line after all makeup is removed helps recondition lashes and encourage them to grow longer, thicker and darker in a matter of weeks. Don’t believe us? Find out more here!
