From tropical tribal prints, sporty couture and maxis and midis being in-trend this season, pairing these bold and colourful trends with natural makeup will keep your face feeling light and airy during the summer without detracting attention from what you’re wearing. This subtle natural look, successfully achieved by Katy Perry (6), can be accomplished with just five makeup tools, all of which can be purchased in high street retailers at affordable prices.
Start off by using your usual everyday moisturiser which will leave your skin glowing without using foundation or pressed powder. The combination of volumizing mascara like Maybelline Great Lash (3) and my new favourite makeup discovery, MAC Kohl White Eyeliner Pencil (4) will undoubtedly make your eyes pop and brighten up your face as model Eva Marcille (1) demonstrates. To add colour to your face, use a small amount of a rosy coloured blusher to add colour to this natural look. Instead of a heavy lipstick, why not use a lip stain as an alternative? NYC Smooch Proof 16H Lip Stain (5) is kiss, smudge and waterproof and gives them a splash of summery shine, guaranteed to leave your lips feeling light without the need to reapply for 16 hours! This natural look is low maintenance, hassle free and therefore perfect for summer!
