With so many amazing potions and elixirs that promise great results, it should be exciting, but selecting which product to opt for can actually be quite overwhelming.
Instep gives you a lowdown of some of the most desirable summer makeup products that will not only rock your dressing table but will also revolutionize your beauty routine.
Benefit Hello Happy Flawless Brightening Foundation
Let’s start off with this weightless foundation. This season skip the full-coverage foundation and opt for Benefit’s Hello Happy Flawless Brightening Foundation. It evens out skin tone and blurs imperfections. Special photochromic pigments instantly brighten, while hyaluronic acid helps the skin stay hydrated and glowy all day long. With a natural-matte finish and light-to-medium coverage, it looks like bare skin and feels like nothing at all.
CoverGirl Tru Blend Undercover Concealer
This product gives you everything you want from a concealer. It is highly pigmented, matte, plus it’s cruelty-free and vegan. The best part is that it’s long-lasting and is available in 30 shades. Its full-coverage formula instantly covers up blemishes and areas of hyper-pigmentation.
Tarte Unleashed Eyeshadow Palette
This vivacious 15-shade matte and metallic eyeshadow palette is vegan, and perfect for creating striking looks. This party palette includes a generous spectrum of neutrals as well as vivid shades of orange, teal, and pink that would even give peacock envy. The oversized pans in this palette give you a lot to play with.
Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm Face Palette
It is time to take your glow to the next level with this face palette from Charlotte Tilbury. It gives the best warm highlight ever. With two highlight shades, one blush and one bronzer, it’s the only palette you need this summer. The product contains lustrous pearl pigments that give your skin a lit-from-within glow and a dreamy rainbow-effect finish. Apart from that it has smoothing polymers which give a gorgeous, soft-focus finish.
Too Faced Damn Girl Mascara
This is the follow-up to Too Faced’s top-reigning Better Than Sex Mascara. Damn Girl is a high-intensity mascara for maximum drama and lift. Its revolutionary creamy mousse formula is developed with a special blend of whipped melting waxes that deliver an immediate full load of extreme volume without feeling heavy. The innovative formula is impressively volumizing, lengthening and locks in 24 hours of smudge-and flake-resistant curl.
Giorgio Armani Beauty Lip Maestro Freeze
Lip Maestro Freeze’s velvety formula has a hint of a pearlescent base that gives its matte finish a subtly luxe dimension. Lips appear instantly plumped and radiant. The sensual, non-sticky texture offers hours of hydration and comfort. Concentrated pigments permeate the gel formula, offering an intense, illuminating lip stain. A single swipe is enough to instantly create definition and add a touch of light for red carpet-ready lips.
BareMinerals Dew Mist Setting Spray
This product is perfect if you want your makeup to last longer in this scorching weather. The setting spray locks makeup in place and hydrates skin, while giving a fresh, natural looking glow. The formula also provides instant hydration. It is a setting spray and moisturizing facial spray that you can use any time during the day to refresh your makeup look.
Essie Summer Nail Collection
The neon trend is all the rage this summer. Be it lids or nails, neon hues look sporty and futuristic in the best of ways. Let your nails take centre stage. Go for an instant street-style update with a neon nail colour - think neon yellow, neon green or neon pink. Remember it’s all about having a bit of fun. Essie has launched its nail lacquer collection that comprises six season-appropriate shades, such as ‘Soles on Fire’ (bright orange), ‘Strike a Rose’ (hot pink), and ‘Tangoed in Love’ (electric purple). Wear on either feet or hands on short, well groomed nails.
