As we roll into summer, we’re all looking for makeup and skincare that feels light and doesn’t overcomplicate things but still gets the job done. Products that can melt in your skin and can mix with any natural oils and or sweat from the day but still look fabulous. It can be challenging to find the formulas that mix well together to create the perfect glowing no-makeup makeup look but don’t fret.
Vapour’s got it covered. Start with freshly washed skin and a thin layer of your favorite SPF-infused moisturizer followed by Vapour’s Gentle Illuminating Primer, part of the GLOWLIGHT Set. ($69.) This hyperclean formula starts out with organic camellia and sunflower seed oils with the rest of the ingredient list also being organic, plant-derived or mineral-derived. Its velvety texture feels nourishing yet light on your skin making it the perfect base layer for foundation or just simple concealer if you’re like me.
While the Gentle Illuminating primer has a luxurious feel, it isn’t as illuminating as some other similar products in its class. The product mattifies the skin, so it’s not a blinding glow but creates a natural, even complexion.
And did someone say glow? Once you’re ready to put the finishing touch on your summer look before you head out the door, crack open Vapour’s Highlight Stick. This highlighter is just the thing to add that extra something special to the high points of your face. Its formula also starts with organic sunflower and castor seed oils. Warm up the stick of the back of your hand and you’re ready to apply. A swipe on each cheekbone and a dab on the tip of the nose and cupid’s bow and you’re off to seaside drinks with friends, a romantic rooftop date night or even just to sit at home in the air conditioning with a glass of chilled rose.
