Come summer time and all we long for is a tall glass of lemonade with sunglasses over our faces. There’s a lot more to the season than just putting away our sweaters and trench coats, especially when it comes to our beauty routine. Our skin desires lighter textures and natural finishes that sit pretty. As you transition to the new season, our makeup tips and tricks will show you how to make the shift for your makeup routine as well.

Switch primer for facial mist

Primer is a magic wand to seal your pores and prolong the run time of your makeup. However, during the humid months, it’s best left out of your regime since it will clog your pores which tend to perspire profusely. Opt for a facial mist instead, a product which definitely doesn’t get the recognition it deserves. Not only will a spritz of facial mist wake up your skin and breathe life into tired skin, it will also provide a refreshed base for your makeup.

Switch heavy coverage for a weightless base

While a good base serves as the foundation of a good makeup look, summer calls for an natural, barely there face. Put away those full coverage foundations and take a lighter route by choosing the Lakmé 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation instead. It’s the perfect summer companion as the foundation will sit weightlessly on the skin and allow your natural texture to show through while giving it a flawless finish.

Switch lipstick for tinted lip balm

There’s a lot to love about a pout that’s full of colour but what’s more desirable during the summer is nourished lips with a tint of colour. Stash away those lip colours and bring out those tinted lip balms. We’re pulling out the Lakmé Lip Love Care to take on the sun with its SPF quotient. The dual core balm will nourish and protect your lips while puckering up your pout with a hint of colour!

Switch hairspray for serum

We’ve gotten acclimated to styling our hair and spritzing it with hairspray as we head out of the house. It’s all about embracing natural hair texture and with a shiny flair. Give your hair a helping hand by running the Toni & Guy Shine Gloss Serum through it. It will leave your hair smooth and frizz-free for you to take on the summer with a head of bouncy, ultra shiny hair!
