Heatwave heroes, sweat-proof staples and smudge-proof superiors – these are the formulations we’re currently craving. There’s nothing worse than prepping for venturing out into the sunshine, for your makeup to slip within seconds. A simple spritz or shine-stopping powder can go a long way and these are three makeup bag swaps you should be making as the summer months roll in…
MILK MAKEUP – Hydro Grip Set + Refresh Spray
A spritz so fine that it distributes evenly onto your complexion without ruining makeup but also banishes all signs of cakey bases? Yes please. This refresh spray is perfect to lock in heavy duty makeup or simply for a little skin uplift throughout the day. LiB top tip – keep in the shower overnight and use before, during and after applying and skincare routine for the ultimate ahhh moment.
KVD Beauty – Dazzle Vegan Eyeshadow Stick
Sweaty eyelids (yes, it’s a thing) can only result in your painstaking eyeshadow blending going down the drain. This longwear shadow stick glides on with ease with a creamy but not-too-dewy formula and leaves your eyes looking prepped to perfection in seconds. A crease-proof way to simplify your routine and avoid unwanted smudging.
Garnier Ambre Solaire – Anti-Dryness Face Protecting Cream SPF50+
Sick of your skin drying out in the sun? It’s either one of two things, you’re not wearing enough SPF (shame on you) or you’re not nourishing your skin with enough hydration focused ingredients. Step forward Garnier… introducing a cream that protects your skin with SPF50+ that is also enriched with ingredients such glycerin that will quench even the most thirsty skin.
Maria Nila – Structure Repair Leave In Cream
New to the UK, Maria Nila has taken the vegan haircare world by storm with their innovative, natural and simplified take on haircare. The summer must have? Their Structure Repair Leave In Cream.
