It’s the best kind of summer weekend: you head out into the sunshine first thing, and don’t go back home until long after the sun has set. But that means you need to make sure your makeup stays on point, all day.
First up, you want a foundation that’s going to look fresh and flawless in the bright sunshine. Step forward Rimmel’s Match Perfection Foundation, £7.99, which blurs pores and gives you great coverage without weighing down your skin.
Finish off your base withMatch Perfection Concealer, £5.99, which not only hides any stubborn blemishes, but also highlights to define and lift your face. Focus under your eyes, around your nose and mouth, and along your brow bone to illuminate your skin in all the most flattering places.
Next, you want a healthy flush that locks down all day, and you’ll nail it with Rimmel’s new Royal Blush collection, £5.49. The creamy formula is easy to dab on and blend with your fingers or a brush, drying down for a powder finish that’s light as air and lasts for hours. Choose from the fruity Peach Jewel, the bright Coral Queen, or the classically rosy Majestic Pink.
And, if you plan on staying out, pack something that’ll switch your look from day to night, like one of the shades of Moisture Renew Lipstick, £6.49 each. They’re lightweight enough to wear all day, easy to apply, and give the punch of colour you crave. Try something soft for day – we love Oxford Street Fuchsia – then go for a rich, bold purple in the evening, like Dark Knight Waterl-oops!.
Finally, there’s one last step for an on-point summer weekend look, and that’s having nails which are perfectly polished in a colour that matches your outfit. Go for a manicure that lasts long past the weekend with Super Gel, £5.99, a no-light-needed formula which stays flawless for up to two weeks when you apply a colour and topcoat.
Now all you need to worry about is how to fill your weekend…
