If there's a beauty look that you have to try before the summer ends, it's the easy-to-do sun-kissed makeup. And you definitely don't have to damage your skin by lounging under the sun to achieve it. Even those with minimal makeup skills can easily replicate the ethereal, beach babe look. All you need are some essentials, and you're set. Keep reading to know these beauty products that will make you look like you've been to the beach when really you just had a nice staycation at home.
A lightweight sunscreen
SK-II Atmosphere Airy Light UV Cream SPF50+, SGD115/~USD85.76
After prepping your skin with toner and a moisturiser, slather some sunscreen to protect your skin. Make sure that you choose a product with lightweight formulation so that it will settle in nicely and won't mess up your makeup. We recommend the SK-II Atmosphere Airy Light UV Cream SPF50+, which has an airy light texture due to the combination of oil-based and water-based UV filters and is formulated with smoothing powder, giving the skin a silky finish.
A cushion foundation
Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion EX, SGD80/~USD59.66
During the summer days, it's best to opt for a breathable, hydrating foundation, instead of a full coverage one. Doing so will minimise the possibility of having breakouts due to clogged pores. Try Sulwhasoo's Perfecting Cushion EX; it uses a unique formula that disperses pigments in water rather than oil, so as to allow the foundation to glide on skin without clumping.
