How to get perfect summer make-up

How to get perfect summer make-up

Nothing says summer like gorgeously glowing make-up. From sheeny lids, shimmery skin, to a plumped-up pout, here’s how to get your glow on in four easy steps.

The beauty team at InStyle is so in love with Clinique's new Vitamin C Lip Smoothie Antioxidant Lip Colours, they've created a whole summer make-up look around these gorgeous new lippies. Read on to find out how to get the look at home in four easy steps.

1. Go for a glow-giving base

Fake the best night's sleep with glowy skin. For an all over gleam (with a little extra coverage thrown in) smooth on an illuminating foundation to make your skin ping.

2. Highlight your best bits

To make your features pop, dot highlighter high on your cheekbones, under your brow arches and a little down your nose. Remember to be light-fingered or you'll risk looking greasy.

3. Give lids a sheeny make-over

Eye gloss looks great on the runway, but can be high maintenance as it creases and slides. A great alternative is to use a fine-shimmered shadow, which will look super-glossy when the light catches your eyes. The best bit? It doesn't need to be perfect, so use your fingers to dab it onto lids.

4. Plump for a glossy, healthy pout

Glossy lips win in the plumping stakes every time and we're loving the new Vitamin C Lip Smoothie Antioxidant Lip Colour, £13.50, Clinique (0870 034 2566). Not only does it contain a powerhouse of anti-aging ingredients (think vitamin C and anti-oxidant-crammed acai berry) to send fine lines packing, it's loaded with moisturising butters for a healthy gleam which fights off flakes. Genius!
