Nothing feels more refreshing this season than embracing our skin in its most natural state. But sometimes, we're in the mood for a just a subtle enhancement—be it a touch more coverage, a hint of radiance, a pop of colour, whatever boosts our happiness level.
So with natural Summer Skin in mind, we edited the summer-perfect products which help us put our best face forward all season long yet allow individual traits like freckles to shine through as nature intended them to.
1 ALWAYS A MIST
"Going completely without makeup I rarely do but if so, I like to keep my face looking dewy and glowing throughout the day with half-hourly spritzes of face mist," says Sable Beauty co-founder Yassira Zaandam.
She's a fan of Monastery Made Hydra Hydrosol brightening, Mist (£33) as well as Hannes Dóttir's Mineral Rich Mineral Mist (£37).
2. GROOMED BROWS MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE
'No matter how little I have on my face my brows are always on top form" continues Yassira, "I just feel more confident when my brows are groomed," even if my dark circles are on full show, I like to brush and slightly fill in my brows with the Kevyn Aucoin Precision Brow In Brunette £21 to guarantee a natural looking lift and finish."
3. A 'USE EVERYWHERE" QUALITY BALM CAN BE A LIFESAVER
If you want to go completely makeup-free, do like many a makeup artist and apply a couple quick dabs of a quality balm £38 to your Cupid's bow, and cheekbones. The result is a glossy, your-skin-but-better finish.
For a pop of colour and sun protection, we like this cheeky dual-action number from COOLA. It just gives that perfect bronzy look on the lips and the organic formula means we always swipe it on the cheeks as well.
In the mood for some luminosity? Wen can't stop applying this sable beauty team-loved highlighter on the cheekbones this season.
This luminizer in Radiance just looks so cool on deep skin tones and fairer complexions alike. Pat it on right before foundation. It gives the high points of the face such a light-catching glow.
6. A SHEER, NATURAL BUILDABLE FOUNDATION
We left our desire for harsh, full coverage in the noughties. These days it is more about a sheer and dab where needed approach when it comes to foundation. Finding natural formula that is as good as skincare and covers the whole spectrum of skintones is tricky but we got your back
