The main trends to watch out for are healthy, beautiful, glowing skin. Subtle, radiant, low key, stunning.

Beauty and makeup trends for Summer 2018 are all about keeping your look as your own individual style. Even if it’s your signature though, it’s time to ditch the heavy make up for a more wearable, natural Summer look.

So, how to achieve this style and look you ask? Well, firstly, follow a simple but effective 5 minute skincare routine, twice a day, to keep your skin clean, exfoliated and hydrated.

Cleansing…We recommend:

We’ve spoken previously about how we love the LumiSpa for its total cleansing genius. It absolutely ticks every box. Cleanses, exfoliates, massages, stimulates your circulation, collagen and lymph drainage,…all in two minutes. You haven’t seen this yet? You NEED a demo so give us a call.

Exfoliation…We recommend:

Once or twice a week use an exfoliant to gently remove dead skin cells. This will make your skin feel smooth and helps your skin care products work much more effectively. Polishing Peel Skin Refinisher uses pumpkin enzymes to resurface, soften and polish the skin. If you can’t get to us for a microdermabrasion, this is a great alternative.

Moisturise…We recommend:

You need to apply a moisturiser morning and night that’s suitable for your skin conditions. It protects against dryness by binding moisture to your skin, supports your skin’s natural barrier function and provides antioxidant protection. Call us and book an appointment for a free consultation. Let’s take a look at your skin condition and we’ll listen to your main areas of concern whether it’s pigmentation, acne, sun damage, ageing, sensitivity or a combination.

Sunscreen…We recommend:

Sunscreen is not just for sunny days. Even if it’s cloudy, we are still exposed to UV rays which causes skin damage, ageing, burning and sensitivity. Get in the habit of applying a sunscreen after your moisturiser, every day, before you apply your makeup.

Let’s not forget the lips. Especially for the summertime, and when on holiday, we love Sunright® Lip Balm SPF15. Prone to getting cold sores from the sun? This moisturising formula will help your lips look and feel smooth and will guard your lips against chapping and protect them from sun and wind damage.

A good quality sunscreen is the best and cheapest anti ageing product you will EVER use.

MakeUp…We recommend:

Ok so, now you’ve prepped, you can apply a light, fresh makeup or even go bare!

Ditch the heavy foundation and try a BB or CC cream. They often contain an SPF, they help to colour correct your skin and diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles, giving you light, flawless coverage an healthy natural glow.

Or if you’re feeling a little pale? Another FaceUp Favourite is Sunright Insta Glow self tanning gel. It’s formulated for face and body and builds gradually into a natural looking tan. You will start seeing results as quickly as 15 minutes after application. It’s low-odour so no unpleasant biscuit smell and it glides effortlessly onto your skin for a smooth and even application. The gel dries quickly, leaving you ready to show off your radiant skin colour.

Apply mascara to separate and lengthen your lashes without clumping. We LOVE NuColour Curling Mascara with a long lasting curling power for a wide open eye effect.

Give your eyebrows a natural look. Book in with us for a wax and tint (you need a tint patch test a minimum of 48 hours before) for flawless looking brows.

For a light natural lip look, with a long wearing shine, try NuColour Contouring LipGloss. This clever little product contains an antioxidant for skin health and a peptide to stimulate collagen production to help you achieve fuller, more shapely lips in under 28 days.

The final effect? Minimal but amazing.
