How to: Summer proof your face

As we all know, hot days and makeup don’t often mix but lucky for you, we’ve got the tricks and long-lasting products to stop your beauty from sliding, smudging and budging in the heat. Summer is no match for these super-strength saviours.

Start Fresh

The key to a flawless face is always starting with a clean slate. Yes beauties, that means ensuring you cleanse, tone and moisturise before applying your makeup in the mornings. The ModelCo natural skincare range has options to suit all skin types, and we especially love the ModelCo CREAM CLEANSER, REPLENISHING ROSE MIST FACIAL MIST and SOOTHING DAY & NIGHT MOISTURISER for gorgeous, glowing skin.

Keep your base in place

Avoid your makeup slipping during the day by using a primer. Apply it to moisturised skin and leave it to sit for 5 minutes before applying your foundation. It will act as a canvas for your makeup to adhere to. ModelCo FACE BASE Skin Primer is a cult classic ModelCo product that professionals and celebrities swear by.

Protect the skin you’re in

Sunscreen is the most important summer essential but opt for something lightweight and radiant so you feel like you’re wearing nothing at all. The tinted, mattifying formula of ModelCo DAILY FACE Mattifying Sunscreen and Lipbalm SPF50+ protects against UVA and UVB rays (but you wouldn’t know it, it looks so good) and ModelCo BODY BRONZE DRY TOUCH SPF50+ is an instant, wash-off bronzer with added SPF50+ protection so you look bronzed and glowing, not chalky.

Create a long-lasting glow

Swap your cheek powder for a long-lasting cream stain to give your face radiance that won’t disappear by mid-morning. Dab ModelCo CRÈME ROUGE into the centre of the cheeks and pair with the new ModelCo HIGHLIGHTING TRIO to give your face some contoured luminosity.

Avoid Panda Eyes

Instead of struggling with Panda Eyes all summer long, reach for a water-resistant mascara such as ModelCo LASHXTEND Lengthening Mascara The tube formula is resistant to crying, sweat and humidity – all well-known enemies of a perfectly applied coat, and simply washes off easily with warm water.

Opt for lightweight coverage

Heavy foundations can really suffocate the skin, especially in summer when skin tends to be oilier than usual. Beat the heat with a breathable, 3-in-1 base like ModelCo MINERAL POWDER which that works as a foundation, concealer and powder in one lightweight, blendable formula.

Complete the summer look: 

ModelCo PARTY PROOF Lipsticks are budgeproof, seriously. Be bold and try a popping pink on your pout for an on-trend, high-impact look. Because less is more when wearing this colour, take a cue from the runways and keep the neon to your lips only. Try: ModelCo PARTY PROOF Lipstick in ‘Parisian Pink’. Surprisingly wearable and incredibly flattering, the right orange will make your skin glow. ModelCo PARTY PROOF Lipstick in ‘Coachella Crush’ is the perfect matte orange shade to suit all skin tones.
