Best for beachy days or occasions with a tropical feel, the gorgeous new Clarins Colours of Brazil summer make-up collection is simply sizzling. Follow these helpful hints and advice on how to get this summer-worthy look.
The key to a fresh-faced look is starting off with great skincare, so be sure to apply a moisturiser suited to your skin type to a freshly cleansed face. If your skin is dry, you can also use a hydrating serum before your day cream. Then it’s time to prime skin with an illuminating or colour-correcting base and conceal any under-eye shadows. Whatever your foundation choice, make sure it provides the coverage you’re looking for without masking natural radiance.

If you’re not afraid to incorporate colour into your make-up look, you’ll adore the items in this summer-inspired collection. Go bold by applying cobalt liner around your eyes for a stand-out look, topped off with two coats of blue mascara. Prefer something a little more traditional? Blend complementary hues of copper, bronze and brown to create a soft, smokey eye and add touches of bronze underneath your cheekbones and on your chin and forehead. Finish with classic black waterproof mascara to really open up the eyes.

Summer days can be long and busy ones so it’s important to keep the essentials close by for those last minute touch-ups. Carry a small purse with things like hairpins, concealer, foundation powder and your lipstick. If you’re really after a golden glow, add a few drops of shimmer oil to bare areas of your body such as shoulders, the tops of your arms and collarbones.
