Ever wondered how to look utterly fresh and natural when the summer months kick in and we begin to battle heat and humidity in our daily makeup regime? A glowing summer look is easily attainable if you follow a few simple makeup steps which Lisa always advises her clients to follow.

First up start with a good base. Lisa's go-to product for providing the perfect base is her own award winning Pro effect Luminescent Base. It masterfully blends makeup and skincare to become your best beauty secret. It's the perfect combination of makeup primer and anti ageing serum in one. It brightens, smooths and reduces redness whilst protecting your skin from environmental damage. Use it underneath your foundation (if using) or simply on its own for a more natural look.

When it comes to foundation, Lisa loves Time Frame Future Resist Foundation due to its beautiful formulation. Not only is it free from Parabens and harsh chemicals, but it's also dermatologically tested and contains Vitamin E. It's a lovely fluid foundation that blends perfectly with the skin, leaving an effortlessly flawless finish. In makeup speak - the light buildable coverage has a subtle luminosity and a velvety texture. The combination of this Vitamin rich product and the Pro Effect Luminescent Base will give you the best of both worlds. It will nourish your skin and leave a flawless complexion while protecting and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles... a perfect summer combo!

To finish off the look try Delilah’s Colour Gloss Ultimate Shine Lipgloss. It is a moisturising lip gloss that gives you that ultimate shine and stays on the whole day with out feeling sticky. It's enriched with vitamin E and emollient oils to nourish and protect and also contains a botanical cellular activator derived from olive and jojoba, offering a youthful and regenerative function. Apply it with the brush to get that ultimate shine or press on with your finger for a subtle sheen. To enhance the colour use together with Colour Intense Cream Lipstick

So that's it - all our favourite products for the perfect summer glow. If you'd like to stalk our Pinterest boards, you can see where we are dreaming of flying off to this summer too!

To minimise further imperfections, Lisa uses Delilah Fade Away Future Resist Concealer. It has an intelligent formula including rose root and sugar beet to reduce puffiness and darkness which is genius. It also contains a natural powder which means that there is no need for a heavy setting powder that could block the skin and take away the skins natural radiance.  

To get that perfect summer look, you could also try Sunset Matte bronzer. It has a silky texture that blends over the skin while soft focus pigments help to reduce any imperfections leaving you with beautiful skin with a sun kissed look. It has a luxurious formula free from Parabens and contains Vitamin E to help protect the skin as well as Jojoba oil for natural hydration. Mix with Pure Light Illuminating Powder if you would like to add an extra glow. 

Also worth a look is Colour Intense Colour Blush for a natural flush on the skin. This lightweight, silky powder blends beautifully over the skin while the micronized formulation helps to blur imperfections. At the moment our favourite shade is Dusk to complement a bronzed summer look.
