KEEPING IT COOL

Long lasting summer base

I’ve been teasing you with my new favourite base routine on my Instagram Stories for a while now. It’s summer friendly, cooling, sweat-proof & long lasting. If you’re looking for a dewy finish that can survive a long day in the office and after work drinks, I’m here to deliver all the newness. Intrigued? Then keep on reading...


I’m so cool man!

Cooling face primer

Waking up in the summertime usually means I’m feeling hot and bothered. SportFX Cooling Primer and Recovery Gel* has been designed for active women that work out a lot more than me, but I’m using its cooling powers for good, okay?! In contact with skin, it delivers cooling sensation without the tingle which is super nice! It’s also hydrating and applies like a dream. At only £9.99 it won’t break a bank but it’ll not only prep your skin for makeup but also help it last a little longer. Yay! Get yours as part of Latest in Beauty Summer 2019 The Beauty Heroes box* now | £30 (worth £138)

Cool as a cucumber!

Cooling foundation

Keeping with the cooling theme, Stila Soufflé Skin Perfecting Colour* also delivers a bit of a cooling sensation and it’s super easy to apply. Here comes a foundation that’s actually perfect to apply with fingers, in fact, it’s recommended. A delicate mousse blends in quickly and delivers light coverage, perfect for summer days. I’m actually pretty obsessed with it. I apply it with hands and only go over with a sponge after. I personally don’t like a finish with a brush or sponge only application. If you want flawless skin with this one, go old school. The finish is worth it. And let’s not forget about the packaging! It’s my prized possession and looks absolutely stunning on my vanity! Available now on Stila UK, Look Fantastic and Beauty Bay | £30.00.

Stay with me.

The only setting spray

Summer days are meant for no powder, am I right? My days are pretty long & I rarely get a chance to touch up so my base needs to last for at least 10-13 hours each day. Huda Beauty Resting Boss Face has my back as it delivers truly incredible staying power. It’s not perfect - the overpowering scent and feel of hairspray aren’t for everyone, but I learnt to deal with it. It’s frankly the best setting spray I’ve ever tried and delivers every day. I can’t be without it! Available now on Cult Beauty, Feel Unique and Selfridges | £28.00

Here it is, my summer base routine that not only looks very natural but also stays put all day. I no longer need to compromise when heatwave hits.
