Summer is coming so bring me colour

Wednesday, 17th April, 2019 4:15pm

As I sit in my office, I am looking out at torrential rain and wind and wishing for balmy summer evenings.

Ordinarily by now I would have had my first seasonal pedicure but that has not happened because the weather is still saying October.

You know what isn’t saying October though? My makeup bag, as it is filled with colour and bronzy hues.

I am loving the Cutex nail polishes lately, they come in a variety of colours and shades and look great on long nails or toes.

Summer is the time that we lighten up a bit on coverage and darken up the complexion with bronzer. Art Deco's limited edition All Seasons Bronzing Powder is a multi-coloured bronzer that creates a natural, sun-kissed look. With three combined colours, use separately or together to highlight and bronze.

Each colour contains subtle pearl pigments, which reflect the light and create a gorgeous glow.

The velvety, long-lasting texture is easy to apply and melts into the skin, almost as if you’re not wearing any make-up, it is a nice big size for €35 too.

Also, from Art Deco is the new, limited edition Tan in a Tube, a subtly tinted bronzing mousse with nourishing vitamin E. The light texture, with its high 85 per cent water-content, gives you an extraordinary freshness boost. Sugar molecules from millet juice give the skin a visible lifting effect.

The delicate, rich freshly scented mousse gives you a natural tanned summer complexion the whole year round. It is great for matching your tan too, especially if you shy away from facial tanners usually.

With warmer weather and blooming flowers on the horizon, it’s a great time to spring into new, bold makeup looks. Electric yellow, saffron-inspired red, mint green, bubble-gum pink – Huda Beauty’s revolutionary Matte & Metal Melted Shadows (€25) are available in ten super-pigmented shades that combine matte and metal finishes. The doe foot applicator allows for traditional liquid shadow application but has a defined edge to apply the shadow as an eyeliner too. I love slicking the metallic under my bottom lash for a pop of colour and a real Arabian nights look, especially if you opt for the bolder colours. Complete the look with some Inglot AMC eyeliner, available in a variety of colours including the blackest of black, it makes lashes look longer and fuller and is the best product for tight lining the eye area.

For the best matte lip at the pharmacy, sign your lips in statement colour with new L’Oreal Paris Rouge Signature Liquid Lip Ink. It's a collection of 12 ultra-matte lip inks that combine uber bold colour with a super-lightweight finish, for the ultimate bare-lip sensation.

Long-lasting no longer means flaky, thick, heavy and uncomfortable matte finish. The oil-in-water formula lets lips breathe, leaving a memorable mark but a forgettable feel for the ultimate all-day comfort. You don’t need a lot and the applicator means it is simple to get the perfect cupids bow.

Be daring and choose a bright red.

IsaDora Active Foundation (€19.95) is a great one for all skin types as the coverage is buildable. It’s sweat-proof, humidity-proof and water-proof. It’s a long lasting foundation and perfect for an active lifestyle and during sports. It is also hg proof or transfer proof (tested on cotton and acrylic) and contains stable colour pigments that don’t change over time and has a soft, elastic texture with a velvety finish with a second skin feel and is oil free.

It is so nice on the skin and isn’t aging the way some long wear ones can be. There is a good variety of colours available, too.

Fuschia Mineral Foundation (€45) is mineral magic. Derived from all-natural ingredients, this vegan and cruelty free foundation is makeup in its purest form. Providing incredible, gradually buildable coverage, with no harsh chemicals, preservatives, alcohol or dyes, the mineral foundation gives the skin a beautiful, healthy glow, effortlessly. Its adaptive nature means it warms to the skin and harnesses the natural oils present to create radiant finish for every individual, making it suitable for all skin types and all ages. This foundation is available in seven shades and is best applied to dry skin and built up gradually.

So now that you have ditched the dull lets colour up and treat ourselves to some decadence!
