Bulletproof Nude

Fight the heat!

Summer’s (finally!) here and it’s one of the few times where we don’t feel guilty for starting and ending our beauty routine with sunscreen.

But, for those inevitable days when you need to have your face on, here are 7 essentials for a timeless summer nude look that’s sweat and transfer-proof!


Our bulletproof nude essentials.


La Roche Posay Fluide Extreme – This lightweight ‘liquid’ sunscreen has the consistency of water and contains silicone and alcohol to keep sweat and oil at bay.

RMK Liquid Foundation – Designed by famed makeup artist Rumiko, the RMK Liquid Foundation provides smooth, creamy and luminous medium coverage. Best bit? The foundation ‘sets’ a few seconds after application so there’s no need for powder unless you have very oily skin.

Make Up For Ever HD Powder – Dust this pore-blurring powder onto any oily areas to set your makeup in place. The finely milled silica doesn’t look cakey or powdery, no matter how much you apply.

Makeup Tip!

Apply a very light layer of HD powder before your liquid foundation to keep even the oiliest skin matte all day.

RMK Ingenious Jelly Cheeks – Jelly Cheeks have a spongey texture which add luminosity and dimension to the cheeks, leaving them looking dewy but with a colour that lasts all day. We love the peach shade.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Shadow Creme – Try this cream shadow in Antique Gold all over the lid for an easy, sultry eye with minimal effort. Simply buff this cream onto your lids with a fluffy brush and finish with waterproof mascara. At night, buff in a bit more of the cream above the crease of your eye, apply a tiny bit to your lower lash with an angled brush and finish with lashings of kohl and mascara.

Lanolips (Rose) – Lanolips keeps your lips hydrated all day in the baking sun, the tinted colours have surprising staying power and pigmentation.

Urban Decay All Nighter Spray – Finally, if you need your face to stay in place from 8am til wine-o-clock, simply mist your face with the Urban Decay All Nighter Spray after applying your makeup in the morning. It really does lock everything down until you scrub it off!
