Now that the blitz has gone, ok slight exaggeration there but hey no one likes winter and boy am I glad its gone! It’s time to make some changes in your beauty regimen for summer. Here are 7 beauty essentials for summer
1. Mattifying Primer
If you already use primers, that’s great but opt for one that’s mattifying because this Aussie heat will have your makeup dripping down your face. My favorite is Mac Prep + Prime.
Listen, If I’m going to expend blood, sweat and tears it’s not going to be over if my makeup is going to withstand the rigors of the day. So get yourself some blotting paper and take it with you everywhere! The Clean & Clear Instant Oil Absorbing Oil Sheets are great, inexpensive too!
3. Waterproof Formulas
Sweat is part water and you don’t want racoon eyes by the time 5 o’clock rolls by. So switch to waterproof mascara,eyeliner,foundation,eyeshadow, lipstick, blusher- Basically, what I’m trying to say here is waterproof everything! Try Mac’s Zoom Waterfast Lash Mascara
4. Mineral Makeup
I hardly wear makeup during the hot months of summer but when I do its very minimal and light and the best way to get this is by using mineral makeup makeup. Its very light and doesn’t make you look cakey. I love Nude by Nature, they have wide range mineral makeup to choose from
This is non-negotiable. No matter what the weather, slap that sunscreen on! Even if its a cold and cloudy day you can risk the chances of premature aging skin if you don’t apply sunscreen. Moisturisers with SPF are great to, try La Clinica’s Sunscreen Lotion
6.Pretty Paws & Claws
People will hardly notice you are sweating when your nails look amazing! It’s scientifically proven. Ok, fine, it’s not, but I still say book an appointment with Jax and she will have your nails looking awesome.
7. Moisturisring Hair Treatment
With all the swimming and heat from the sun, your hair is going to get dryer than the Sahara Desert . So give your hair some tender loving care and apply a hair moisturising treatment once a week. The O&M Seven Day Miracle masque is great for an once a week treatment, it gives your hair a shot of intense moisture that it needs with the blend of unique organic oils. We actually stock O&M at Esstudio too! Continue reading
