It appears as though summer has arrived in the UK (don’t shout about it though, you might scare it off), which means it’s time to reassess our beauty routines. Summer beauty is all about easy, natural and radiant looking skin with fun pops of colour.
Take a look at our easy beauty swaps to get you ready for summer:
Swap rich moisturisers for something lighter
The heat of summer can make our skin produce more oil than usual, so (unless you have very dry skin) you may want to put the heavy moisturiser away and opt for something lighter that helps to fight shine.
Swap foundation for a BB cream
Having foundation slide down your face while you’re outside on your lunch break is never a good look. Try using a lighter formula like a BB cream that tackles multiple sins at once.
Swap powder blusher with a cream blusher
Powder formulas can look chalky, so embrace your natural summer glow by using a dewy cream or gel. Remember, a little goes a long way with liquid formulas, so use sparingly.
Swap harsh eyeliner with soft definition
Liquid black eyeliner can look fantastic – but during the day, in the height of summer, it can look a bit much. Keep your look natural and easy by lining your eyes with a softer brown pencil instead.

Swap wine-hued lipstick for glossy brights
Dark, berry coloured lips are more suited to autumnal palettes, so you may want to try something a little different for summer. Keep it natural with a tinted lip balm or have fun with bright, citrus colours.
