Your failsafe guide to flawlessly natural summer skin
It is possible to achieve a glowy luminous complexion, even when it’s steamy outside.
While we all love kicking back and enjoying the glorious weather and warm sunshine of summer, the sunny season is not always a beach for our skin.
These simple get-lit tricks will keep you glowing, no matter the temperature.
1. Prep your skin
Pollution, sunscreen and sweat can all clog your pores in summer, leaving skin feeling dull and congested and making it harder for moisturisers to work effectively.
The all-important cleanse and exfoliate steps in your skincare routine are crucial to ensure your skin is primed for your favourite moisturiser application. Follow with a primer to create a silky-smooth canvas ready for make-up application.
2. Create your base
Summer is all about creating the natural “no makeup” look, so opt for a lightweight foundation to even out skin tone while keeping you looking fresh and glowy.
Revlon’s new Colorstay Light Cover Foundation is a long-lasting and high-performance liquid foundation with SPF 30 protection, offering 12 hours of luminous, natural-look coverage.
Free of nasties, Revlon Colorstay Light Cover Foundation is also infused with concentrated pomegranate to boost skin’s hydration by 56 per cent throughout the day.
It comes in eight on-point shades and has a buildable texture that hides blemishes while letting your skin peek through for the perfect “no makeup” makeup look.
3. Add some lustre
Once your base is in place, it’s time to up your radiance factor.
Revlon Skinlights Face Glow Illuminator in Sunrise Lustre is a cult liquid product that can be used in multiple ways to brighten and illuminate the complexion.
Use it underneath your base as an illuminating primer, mix it with your foundation for a subtle all-over glow or use as a highlighter on cheekbones and eyes for a little goddess-like extra radiance.
Then use a large brush to apply ultra-blendable Revlon Skinlights Bronzer in Cannes Tan for that beautiful, fresh, sun-kissed glow.
4. The finishing touches
Now for a pop of colour with a gentle sweep of Revlon Glow Powder Blush.
Micro-fine and buildable in perfect shades that look fresh all day, these smooth powder-blush formulas can be built in intensity depending on whether it’s night or day.
Add eye-catching lashes with Revlon Volumazing WaterProof Mascara with 24 hours of no smudging or flaking, so you can avoid the dreaded panda eyes.
And finally, complete your sweat-proof summer look with beautiful kissable lips.
Either go full gloss with Revlon Super Lustrous The Gloss in summer shades Blissed Out or Lean In, or for a subtle hint of colour with a conditioning oil complex, try Revlon Kiss Glow Lip Oil hydrating tint.
