Set your base

While we may feel the need to use more of a matte foundation during the summer months for fear of it slipping, Ginelle recommends still using a beautiful luminous foundation but setting it with a translucent powder. The Nude By Nature Mineral Finishing Veil from Big W has great staying power! Her top tip? Focus predominantly on the t-zone, but oily skin types may also like to set their cheeks, too.

Bronzer, blush and blend!

For a (safe) sun-kissed look, bronzer and cream blush are a must! Starting with your bronzer (take note of Ginelle’s tips in the video tutorial above), then lightly pressing the cream blush into the apples of your cheeks rather than using a brush. The Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blushfrom Big W will be your go-to for pigment and blendability.

Illuminate your features

When it comes to highlighter, we need think about where the sun would naturally hit the face. Think bridge of the nose, cupids bow, and cheekbones. A light sweep of highlighter carefully placed in the right spot is sure to illuminate your features and take your look to the next level.

Smooth it out

If you’re wanting sleek, frizz-free summer hair, apply a smoothing balm to the mid-lengths and ends before blow-drying. We love the Olaplex No. 6 Bond Smoother from Hairhouse Warehouse 

Spring summer fashion with a twist

Midi dresses and floral prints are a staple of the season. Edge up this look with some high-top sneakers or chunky trainers. The Superga Womens 2750 Organic Cotton Sneakers from Platypus Shoes are on-trend for summer – not to mention super comfy! Complement your cool-girl look with a bucket bag and shades and you’ll be set for summer.
