Six of this season’s hottest make-up trends

A summer without the prospect of holiday needn’t mean a summer without that post-vacation glow – the beauty pros at French make-up house By Terry have it covered

The dewy highlight

By Terry’s best-selling Brightening CC Serum will fast-track you to sun-kissed radiance with minimal effort. The sheer texture of this glowing base adds a dewy dimension to any make-up look, so use it as a primer, wear it on its own or simply beneath your foundation. You can use it for a low-key sheen or bold highlight, depending on your mood – whichever you choose, the serum will give you a boost of hydration, radiance and that all-important colour correction. 


The matte-moisturise finish

It’s a dream when skincare meets make-up. Hyaluronic Hydra-Foundation (SPF 30) is a flawless foundation that pampers your skin, too. Turbo-charged with hyaluronic acid, it locks in moisture while the complexion wizardry gets to work to give you flawless coverage. Plus, the handy droplet applicator means you can get just the right amount every single time. Heaven in a bottle.

The wet-look lip

While we slather on lip balm in the winter, our summer pouts are often neglected. Your trusty sidekick for super-soft lips is the Baume de Rose Lip Balm, now available in a sensational summer edition. An arsenal of moisture-boosting ingredients, including rose blossom essential wax, shea butter and vitamin E, is packed inside the pot to take lips from cracked to kissable.

The non-cakey cover

This game-changer is sure to convert you to loose powders again. Forget the fear of cracked, caked-on layers and invest in the reality of a lightweight, veil-like finish that keeps your T-zone in check by controlling rather than covering shine, all the while maintaining an optimum moisture level. A quick swipe of Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder or Hyaluronic Tinted Hydra-Powder and you’re good to go.

The subtle blush

Balmy days may have you reaching for the bronzer, but this summer’s look is all about a pop of pink blush. Brightening CC Blush’s hybrid formula gives the trusty rouge of a blush and the glossy illumination of a highlighter. A few drops are all you need to glow-up, so it’s a beauty investment that will grace your make-up stash for a while.
