Tips from Dior.. Secrets for a Summer Glow

With the sun playing peek-a-boo constantly this week, Dior’s International Beauty Expert Shane Paish shares his top tips on how to get glowing skin this summer..

1) Preparation is everything.
“Start with a hot shower, exfoliate and then moisturise the whole body – the steam really allows the moisturiser to penetrate the skin.”

2) Perfect the canvas before you start painting.
“Getting the perfect base for your foundation means using a combination moisturisation and coverage. Massage a luminous moisturiser into the skin for a dewy, reflective glow”. Try Capture Totale Multi-Perfection Brightness Enhancer, £106.50

3)Warm up your foundation.
“Go one shade warmer with a sheer foundation over the summer – try Diorskin Nude Glow Healthy Glow Summer Fluid in 002 Honey Nude, £28.50. Always use a sponge and blend to create a barely-there effect.”

4) Dark circles – the secret
“It’s the colour that knocks out the grey, not the thickness. A yellow-toned concealer brings tired eyes back to life. Try Dior Skinflash Radiance Booster Pen, £24.00 – it highlights and conceals at the same time.”

5) Metallics – a summer must
“Use shadows with a metallic-based hue to keep them from looking flat and two-dimensional. Warm-toned metallic eyeshadows will sink into the skin’s oils and blend beautifully.” Try Dior 5 Couleur Iridescent in Earth Reflection, £38.00.
