What is your current favourite skincare product?

I love the Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel as its non-oily design makes it perfect for summer.

What is your current favourite make-up product?

The Chubby Foundation Stick is a great alternative to classic foundation and it’s so easy to use. I use a single layer for a fresh look but double up if I’m looking for a little more coverage. One of the ingredients is coconut, so it has a creamy base and blends really easily.

What beauty look are you most excited about this season?

I love the barely-there natural look. It’s simple to achieve and doesn’t take long, plus it’s a beauty trend that we have seen emerging this season so it ticks all the boxes.

Who should we be following on instagram for the most inspirational beauty content?

I love Florrie White’s account as she posts such a range of content on a daily basis, from celebrity red carpet looks to her own beauty bag.

BEACH READY

If you’re destined for the beach and can’t quite brave heading out without make-up, it’s a natural, barely-there beauty look that you should aim to achieve. As with all the looks in our summer dresses feature, there’s an art to mastering it:

- Blend Chubby in the Nude Foundation™ Stick where coverage is needed using the Foundation Buff Brush.

- Apply Vanilla Pop Lid Pop over the entire eyelid and slightly above the crease of the eye.

- Apply Nude Rose All About Shadow Eye Shadow Single into the crease of the eyelid and underneath the lower lash line for more depth.

- Complete the eye with High Impact Mascara.

- Softly define brows with Just Browsing Styling Mousse.

- Apply Cheek Pop Ginger Pop Blush subtly to the apples of the cheek for a sun-kissed effect.

- Cover the whole lip with Quickliner for Lips Intense Blush.

- Layer Pop Lacquer Lip Colour + Primer in Wink Pop over the top to give a soft sheen and enliven the appearance of the lip.

DAYTIME CHIC

Once you’ve mastered wearable, everyday make-up, summer beauty will become a breeze. Clinique’s daytime beauty look works both during the week and for something a little more special at the weekend.

- Blend Chubby in the Nude Foundation™ Stick where needed using the Foundation Buff Brush.

- Apply Cream Pop Lid Pop over the entire eyelid. Blend a slightly darker colour in the crease and underneath the lower lash line for added definition.

- Complete the eye with High Impact Mascara.

- Softly define the brows with Just Browsing Styling Mousse.

- Apply Cheek Pop Plum Pop Blush to the apples of the cheeks and Sunkissed True Bronze Pressed Powder Bronzer to create summer warmth.

- Cover the entire lip with Quickliner for Lips Intense Hibiscus and layer with Bubblegum Pop Glaze Sheer Lip Colour + Primer, for a sweet, candy-pink hue.

OCCASIONWEAR ELEGANCE

There’s still space for a dramatic make-up look in summer months, but save it for occasion dressing to transform your go-to daytime look and really make an impact.

- Apply Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer for a flawless complexion.

- Apply Cocoa Pop Lid Pop over the entire eyelid and add Cream Pop Lid Pop for a brighter inner eye.

- Shade the crease of the eye with Nude Rose All About Shadow Eye Shadow Single and intensify the look with French Roast All About Shadow Eye Shadow Single.

- Smudge Ebony Quickliner for Eyes Intense into the lash line and layer Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara for bold lashes.

- Create a dramatic brow with Superfine Liner for Brows, slightly straightening the brow shape.

- Contour the face with a darker face powder or foundation.

- Apply Pop Lip Colour + Primer in Berry and top with Peace Pop Lacquer Lip Colour + Primer for added drama.
