Let’s face it, summer’s the best season. Deep down, we all believe that. But our make-up doesn’t… What can we say? Some of us just aren’t built to cope with the heat. Que Grainne McCoy coming to our rescue with her essential summer make-up tips! If you’re interested in keeping your base in place during the warmer months, just keep on reading!

1. Less is more – on hotter days, keep your base make-up light and airy. A BB/CC cream is perfect for summer, with buildable coverage with a lightweight finish!
2. Mattifying primer is a must – it creates a barrier between the skin and foundation which will stop sweating. An absolute essential during the annual summer heatwave!
3. Incorporate SPF into your make-up routine; it’s very important to protect your skin from potential sun damage. Yes, even in Ireland! SPF is included in certain foundations and primers, so keep an eye out for those!
4. Setting spray will help make up last longer – we recommend Urban Decay’s All Nighter Setting Spray.

A bonus beauty tip for coping during the summer months – to stop your feet slipping about in sandals or sliders, use deodorant on your feet! Who would’ve thought?
