Although summer feels light years away, it is not only our bikini lines that we should be thinking about sorting out soon-ish. There’s also the fact that your winter make-up look just looks plain heavy in the sun. Unless you are Kate Moss, you need to leave black kohl rimmed eyes for the winter, along with the layers of foundation, and lighten your routine. So when the sun has finally arrived, you’ll be looking as though you have just come back from a tropical holiday – not stuck in light deprived/air conditioned office for the past 6 months.
Here’s how: If your skincare routine is leaving you feeling pasty, try the Bliss Triple Oxygen starter set.The fab minis firstly give you a great introduction to the line and, as they all work better as a team, you can brighten up your complexion in time for summer. There is an eye gel in the pack but the This Works Perfect Eyes Recovery Cream is ideal to de-puff and light enough to soak straight in – it really, really works and is one of my hero products.
Make-up wise, the best thing you could do is start again from the base up. Benefit’s Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow foundation will leave you with medium coverage, whilst looking and feeling barely there, and boasting an impressive inbuilt SPF 25. If you need concealer, Soap and Glory’s Kick Ass concealer is pretty hot to trot, and includes a setting powder in the cleverly-designed kit.
