How to Create the Perfect Summer Makeup

Summer months call for a lighter, brighter makeup routine and a glowing complexion. I want to show you how to achieve a soft, sun-kissed look with lots of added dimension and colour to bring the face to life. 

Here's my step-by-step tutorial on how to create the perfect summer makeup look...

Step 1

> Apply a pea-sized amount of our Smooth Like Silk Face Prime to the back of your hand using the pump.

> Starting with your cheeks, gently smooth the product over your whole face using your fingertips and allow to settle into skin

Step 2

> The next step is to apply your foundation.

> First, buff it onto the face with the warmth of your fingertips, and then blend it out using our Round Foundation Brush or Foundation Brush 3

Step 3

> Take our Perfect Finish Translucent Powder and swirl a large kabuki brush in it

> In light circular motions sweep the powder over the entire face. This sets any liquid face products and keeps them from moving around

Step 4

> Add some interest to your cheek and brow bones with a liquid highlighter

> Apply our highlighter directly from the integrated blush wherever the light naturally hits your face, like cheek and brow bones. Pat in with fingers

Step 5

> Next, go in with some dimensional Real Radiance Blush. It's a cream-to-powder formula, so I use my fingers to pat the blush into the apples of my cheeks, building up to my desired colour intensity.

> Then I use our Blusher Brush 2 to blend it out in swirling motions.

Step 6

> Dab a large kabuki brush lightly into our Enduring Summer Bronze and then tap the brush on the side of the palette to remove any excess

> Lightly apply the bronzer to the very top of your forehead, below your cheekbones and under your chin in a '3' formation 

Step 7

> Finally, bring the look together with a lipstick

> Opt for bright colours like our Lustrous Colour Lipstick in shades like Fuchsia or Poppy

> Use a lip brush to precisely line the lips first, and then blend the product into the middle.

> Purse your lips twice to blot, and then add a second coat

"This is the one!"


"As the name implies, this IS a fabulous bronzer! I am 68, and like many of you, I had a drawer full of products. Not anymore. This bronzer is very actually have to apply twice in some areas. I found so many too dark, but this is just right. Great as a contour color, too. I just threw out all the others I had. This is the one!"

"Lovely effect"


"I’m new to the products in this range and I can honestly say I love the Fabulous Light highlighter! It really is quite subtle, whilst at the same time it leaves the skin looking dewy and youthful without looking obvious as many other brands do!"

"My favourite LFF product"


"This is the creamiest most natural looking blush I have ever found. I absolutely love the look and feel of it. I have it in both Peach Cream and Coral Pop. Both are such a perfect match for my warm toned skin. Sometimes I will even mix them together. You hit the jackpot on this one, LFF!"
