The summer is not really the time to slap on thick layers of make-up, heavy false eyelashes and thick eyeshadow, as most people want to achieve a tanned summer glow that looks completely natural instead.
Of course, unless you’re as stunning as olive-skinned Jessica Alba or as striking as Charlize Theron, the chances are the make-up free look you want to achieve actually requires a number of products.
Let’s face it, not many of us wake up in the morning looking as effortlessly beautiful as Jennifer Lopez, but we can get halfway there by using the right skincare and make-up.
For a start, you need that golden glow, which you can get from using a good-quality tanning product like St Tropez Self Tan Luxe Body Serum.
Coco & Eve Sunny Honey Bronzing Face Drops also gives the appearance of sun-kissed skin.
To make it look like you’ve been relaxing by the beach for the last few weeks, use a bronzer to highlight your cheekbones and a bit of blush to add some colour to your cheeks.
Keep eye make-up subtle, opting for a brown eye pencil and natural tones for eye shadow if you have to use any.
The trick to achieving the gorgeous make-up-free look is to have subtle cosmetic procedures that take away the need for cover up or enhancement.
For instance, an eyelash lift means you can do away with mascara, while microblading in Hull lets you ditch the eyebrow pencil as you won’t have to fill in, or shape, your brows anymore.
Fillers or semi-permanent make-up on lips also allows you to leave your lipstick at home while on holiday, so you can make yourself look your best with only a handful of products.
