Let’s face it, summer is here, and it’s about to melt all your enthusiasm to step out. But don’t let the sun’s flare dampen your spirit. You can still go for socially distanced brunches with your pals, gelato dates with bae, or even a quick drive down to a beach town. While planning your summer looks, save yourself from a sweaty, cakey disaster and turn to the season’s make-up essentials that keep the look intact. Head to the new beauty destination, TATA CLiQ, to stock up on these essentials now!
For Your Face
Every trickle of sweat on your face melts away some of your makeup with it, trickle by trickle. To avoid looking like a weather-worn mess, go for products that are lightweight and non-greasy. A word to the wise: apply sunscreen generously while prepping the skin, then layer it with our must-have makeup bases to look fresh all day.
1. Faces Canada Weightless Matte Finish Foundation
Toss aside the heavy foundations and turn to this lightweight formula that blends seamlessly and doesn’t cake up even after hours of being in the sun.
2. Ciate London Glow-To Illuminating Blush – Pinch Me
A good blush gives that flushed look that adds to your natural radiance. Take this powder formula as one of the leading examples of how to get your blush game right for up to 12 hours, even in humid weather.
For Your Eyes
We’re taking it as a given that you’re flaunting your trendy sunnies, but even then, eye makeup needs your attention. Here, summer-proof eye make-up equals waterproof make-up, whether it’s mascara or eye shadow. Add these two to the cart for eyes that enchant.
1. Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Boost Waterproof Mascara
Runny mascara can transform you from ravishing to a raccoon in a matter of seconds. Our current seasonal favourite by Essence offers a voluminous long-lash look without a bit of a smear, even if you jump into a pool.
2. Ciate London Partner in Prime Eye Primer
The key to a lasting eyeshadow is a killer eye primer, right? Dab this primer on your lids to create a creaseless, lasting base for your eye shadow to cling on to. Pro tip: Brush it off with some powder for a long-wearing, intense colour game.
For Your Lips
We love our mattes, but it’s best to avoid them in the summers. And glossy ones look nothing less than some melting raspberry sorbet smudged all over. Turn to these lip picks for getting the summer pout right and thriving throughout the day.
1. Revlon Kiss Cushion Lip Tint Berry Lit
It’s all about sheer, natural, berry-kissed lip tints this summer, like this long-lasting, sheer formula. Bonus: it’s moisturising and promises a hydrating effect.
2. Colorbar Definer Lip Liner Rosy Red
If you love lip liners, then this weightless waterproof pencil is your best bet. Match the liner with your lipstick shade, and marvel at how easily this liner glides. Conscious beauty-lovers can take heart as it’s cruelty-free.
