As the warmer weather approaches, so does the pairing back of heavy foundation. Let your skin breathe and take a fresh approach with the right base and application that will leave your skin to shine. 

Ross Andrewartha, Chadstone’s Official Beauty Insider, recommends beginning with a luscious moisturiser to keep your skin hydrated and enhance your natural beauty. Then, focus on coverage only where needed and complete your look with dustings of golden brown where the sunlight hits your face.

Summer is all about being playful, with colour not limited to clothes. Elevate your look with pops of bright on the lip or eye.

Ross’ tip: Match your lip colour to tones on your outfit, makeup is your final accessory!


STEP ONE: Moisturise

Indulge your skin with a layer of good quality moisturiser. This will keep you looking and feeling hydrated during the summer days. A great base of a moisturiser is the essential first step to build a natural glow, don’t underestimate the importance of skin prep – especially during warmer weather!

STEP TWO: Illuminate

Shine light onto your skin by adding luminosity to your next layer. An illuminating primer will give your skin an instant refreshed complexion.

STEP THREE: Foundation

With the right foundation and gentle application you will allow your skin to breathe whilst still adding that layer of desired coverage. Less is more this Summer, embrace your natural beauty.

STEP FOUR: Conceal and Bronze

Add extra perfection and dimension, by concealing the eye and bronzing the cheekbone. Ross' Tip: The right application relies heavily on the tools you are working with. Ross finds the Real Techniques brushes an inexpensive addition to your make up bag that don't comprise a professional finish.

STEP 5: Glow

Each step of this look contributes to celebrating your natural skin. For that final touch of radiance, add a golden highlighter to the top of your facial peaks. The sun will automatically gravitate to these features for a showstopper look!

STEP 6: Bold Lip

Speak volumes without saying a word – complete your look with a lip colour in the same tone of your outfit. Nothing says confidence more than a statement lipstick – have fun with it!
