Summer is full of wonderful things, and ditching the full coverage products is one of them. Below is our collection of summer-ready, lightweight cosmetics with staying power to fill your makeup bag with this season.
Hourglass Cosmetics Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick
This product will cover any redness or rosacea without catching on dry patches. The packaging is fuss-free, ideal for traveling and super chic.
Chantecaille Just Skin Tinted Moisturizer
If a full face of foundation feels stifling to you in the summer heat, it’s best to opt for a tinted moisturizer. One of the best on the market right now is the Victoria Beckham Beauty Golden Rejuvenating Priming Moisturizer, in collaboration with Augustinus Baber. With its cell-boosting qualities and glowy rather than glittery formula, you’ll be left with a unified and luminous complexion. Alternatively, try the L’Oreal Paris Skin Paradise Tinted Moisturiser with SPF20 for a more budget-friendly yet dewy and mega-hydrated finish.
Benefit Boi-ing Airbrush Concealer
The Boi-ing Concealer is all you need for summer. With 10 hours of waterproof wear and a sheer yet buildable result, there is no better way to perfect your skin without it feel heavy/cakey.
Fenty beauty cream blush
The way forward this summer, cream blushes are ideal to stand the test of time in the heat. Fenty’s formula is lightweight, smooth and is beautifully enhancing on the skin for that natural flushed look.
Yves Saint Laurent Couture Brow
Feathery brows are all the rage this summer and the Couture Brow will help you fix, structure and intensify your eyebrows for long-lasting results.
Glossier Pro Tip Eyeliner
A super easy-to-use eyeliner. It’s densely pigmented, buildable, dries quickly and stays put for up to 12 hours.
Lancome Juicy Shaker Lip Gloss
Who doesn’t love a hydrating lipgloss for the summer? Lancome’s gloss will give you a pop of colour whilst nourishing dry skin. The packaging is pretty cool, too.
