Summer daze: beauty’s sensual new mood

BREEZE THROUGH SUMMER WITH GLOWING SKIN, CAREFREE COLOUR AND SPF-FUELLED PROTECTION. ARE YOU TO READY TO EMBRACE BEAUTY AND THE BEACH?

Long, sizzling days have us in a summer daze, and when it comes to beauty the forecast calls for a similarly effortless mood. Glowing skin is the season’s best accessory, with illuminating primers lighting up your complexion from within. Gleaming highlighters sparkle in the sun and shimmering body oils glisten over exposed shoulders, collarbones and bare legs.

By the light of day, SPF is, of course, a non-negotiable, and not just for beach forays and sunny getaways but every day. Mecca Cosmetica’s makeup-friendly, skin-loving sunscreens make it easy to slip sun care into your everyday routine, so save your excuses for when an afternoon snooze delays your arrival for sunset drinks.

Makeup-wise, we’re opting for lightweight, barely-there coverage that perfects your complexion while imparting a luminous glow—like the kind you can only get from four weeks annual leave. Mecca Cosmetica’s Face Tint does all that and has SPF 30 protection for when the mercury rises.

As the sun goes down, swipe on glimmering eyeshadows that sparkle like the reflection of the ocean and don a pair of golden earrings to match. Add a kiss of colour to the lips with Lip De Luscious Glide—in a shade that closely resembles the popsicle you toted poolside and you’re ready to heat up the dancefloor. We’re in a summer state of mind and we’re not sorry one bit. Press play!
