Discover makeup tips for hot days

Hot summer days require a special approach to makeup. From waterproof mascara to lip balms with SPF, our Skins Experts have gathered all the tips and tricks to ensure your makeup is heat-resistant and keeps you looking radiant all day.

The ultimate base — including SPF

A good base is essential for makeup in hot weather. The right products will keep your makeup looking perfect for longer. Start with the SuperNatural Radiance Tinted Serum Light Aura from RMS, a lightweight serum that evens out the complexion and provides SPF 30 protection. Follow up with Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer Oil Free, which prevents shine thanks to its oil-free formula. To conceal imperfections, use Laura Mercier’s Real Flawless Concealer, which not only covers the under-eye area but also other zones on your face. Its waterproof formula prevents it from settling into fine lines and keeps your makeup feeling fresh and hydrated all day.

Bronze goddess

Achieve the ultimate sun-kissed effect with RMS’s ReDimension Hydra Bronzer. This long-lasting bronzer combines the texture of a gel with the finish of a powder, in a refillable design. Enriched with ingredients like wild buriti oil and organic jojoba oil, this bronzer nourishes and softens your skin while revealing a natural glow.

Skins Expert tip: use a brush to apply the powder on areas where the sun naturally hits, or on zones that need more colour.

Pop of colour

Create a healthy flush on your cheeks in no time with NARS Afterglow Liquid Blush. This blush blends effortlessly and is easy to build, perfect for touching up your makeup on a hot day. It also hydrates for up to eight hours and provides a long-lasting, radiant glow.

Finishing touch

Rae Morris’s Invisible Mattifier is your ‘blotting paper’ throughout the day. This makeup product gives a matte and natural look by evening out and mattifying shiny areas with a velvety finish.

Waterproof eyes

Want an eye look that lasts all day? Laura Mercier’s Caviar Stick and Byredo’s mascara are the perfect combination for a long-lasting eye look. The Caviar Sticks contain hydrating ingredients, ensuring comfortable wear without settling into lines or fading. Plus, the waterproof formula is ideal for hot days. Byredo’s waterproof mascara is easy to build, allowing you to touch up your look effortlessly throughout the day.

Lush lips

A lip pencil adds definition and prevents other lip products from feathering. Pair a lip liner with Ultra Violette's Sheen Screen Hydrating Lip Balm SPF50, a hydrating lip balm enriched with SPF50 and a subtle shine. The gentle formula protects the delicate skin of the lips from harmful sun rays, while a blend of lanolin, shea butter, and cocoa butter provides ultimate care for your lips.


Laura Mercier’s Smooth Finish Foundation Powder is perfect for a quick touch-up. This lightweight powder foundation feels like a second skin and provides a natural-looking, long-lasting makeup look. Enriched with SPF 20, this foundation not only offers protection but also a silky-smooth finish.

Hydration and protection

Need a hydrating moment during hot days? Coola Face Mist offers refreshing sun protection in a light mist, enriched with SPF 50 for optimal protection. Perfect for a quick refresher that not only protects your skin but also provides a cooling sensation.
