Hello beauty lovers!
So summer is FINALLY here, and much like winter, it requires a tonne of unique beauty tricks! After all, it is in summer that we are faced with the intense struggle of our hair falling flat or frizzing up a storm for the curly haired babes. Then we have the battle of making sure our beautifully bronzed eyeshadow does not become a greasy pool in our eyelid creases – the list could go on and on. But have no fear ladies! There are loop holes to beat these summer beauty woes, so if that sparks an interest (which I have no doubt it does), then read on….
First of all, Hi, Hello! Liliana Ritchie is the name, and beauty and fashion is my game! Born and raised on the Gold Coast, Queensland, summer time has always been my favourite season. A little bit about me – I am a 19 year old Actress, Model, Singer and all round creative. I have been since a very young age! Beauty, fashion and photography has always been a big passion of mine, so being able to use Instagram (@lili.ritchie) and social media as a platform really allowed my career to take off in the modelling and influencing world in 2018 which has been absolutely amazing! But enough about that, let’s talk beauty shall we;
MY GO TO SUMMER MAKEUP ROUTINE?
For me personally, I obsess over a super glammed up face, however, in summer, my go to makeup look is usually along the lines of a more ‘subtle glam’ with a bit of bronzed kind of look. I always make sure my face is clean before applying any makeup, and then I start with a moisturiser and primer because as we all know ladies (not to prime is a crime). Depending on where I am heading that day I’ll decide whether I want to wear foundation or not. Usually if it’s just a normal day, I’ll use a little concealer, matte powder, bronzer and highlight. I will fill my brows in with a bit of brow powder or pomade, and use the bronzer I used on my face also on my eyelids to compliment the warm colour tones. Lastly, I’ll apply a light bit of mascara and lip gloss and I’m out the door!
SOME TIPS TO MAKE YOUR MAKEUP STAY IN SUMMER
So I know you’re thinking it already… Lili, how can I make sure my makeup stays fresh and perfect in summer? (Okay maybe you weren’t thinking that exactly, but now you are, right!?) Well here it is, my top 5 tips-
HOW TO KEEP YOUR SKIN HYDRATED
Did you know that the skin is the largest organ in the body? Well now you do! Skin dehydration has such a high tendency to occur, especially during summer! It makes ur skin vulnerable to sun allergies, ageing, dry and tight skin, and uneven patches. So to beat this, here are a few tips –
HOW TO PROTECT YOUR SKIN FROM THE SUN
As annoying as sunscreen can be, yes the sticky and gross feeling we all get, it is a definite must to Slip Slop Slap this Summer! Make sure to use sunscreen every day before leaving the house, in particular a sweat-proof sunscreen lotion with moisturiser (SPF) of 15 or higher! For my fair skin ladies definitely invest in a sun block that is slightly stronger (SPF) 30 or higher.
MY ESSENTIAL SUMMER PRODUCTS
For me, my holy grail essential products that are in my purse right now are my moisturiser, concealer, powder, and last but not least my paw paw balm!
Now that you’ve made it this far, you are totally ready to take on the summer gal! You can now say hello to the warm weather, sunshine and long days at the beach whilst still looking like you walked out of a vogue magazine shoot!
