So why not check out this summer makeup hacks that I will share.

Here are our tips for speeding up your natural summer makeup routine. So you can spend more time doing the things you enjoy.

BB Cream

No one wants a makeup bag overflowing. Especially if they are heading away for the weekend or to the gym, beach or bach. BB Cream is a handy helper when it comes to packing light summer makeup must have.

  • Acts as a moisturizer, sunblock, concealer and illuminator in one single tube.
  • Saves time applying everything and get flawless skin in one swipe.
  • Use BB Cream with SPF for sun protection.
  • And of course, choose a product that says noncomedogenic so it won’t clog your pores.

Tinted eyelashes from a salon feels terrible! The tints always get into my eyes. So I spend 15 minutes trying to cope with the burning sensation before I can wash it out. That is why I like eyelash and brow tinting kits I can use it home. When you do it yourself you can apply the solution like a mascara with your eyes open. And this means no pain – as long as you apply it carefully. Another summer makeup collectible.

This is another great product that won’t let you down, even while swimming and splashing on the beach. You can tint your eyelashes and eyebrows at home. So you look great even in the water or after a sweat session at the gym.

  • Get 4-6 weeks wear without smudging or fading away when in water.
  • 100% waterproof and very easy to use.
  • 10 times cheaper than a salon treatment.
  • 1000 hours worth of wear in every box
  • Use to tint your eyelashes and eyebrows
  • No need to worry about panda eyes or brows

Gradual Tanner

Everyone is a fan of looking divinely bronzed during summer. But I bet nobody wants to stay under the sun for so long. So one solution is to use fake tanning products. And Gradual Tanner is a moisturizer that slowly builds up into a golden tan color. Therefore, no extra effort. Just apply like a moisturiser and go about your day. It also lightly builds up colour. So no tell tale signs that you used a fake tanning product. A great addition to your summer makeup secrets!
