Beat the Heat Make-up Tips

Always cleanse, tone and moisturise before applying makeup. You may wish to use a matte moisturiser such as Rose Day Cream Light or if you have a combination oily T-zone skin then use Melissa Day Cream. If you have a dry/dehydrated skin that needs a moisturiser that’s activating yet very light in texture for summer time, then use Revitalising Day Cream. Leave your moisturiser to absorb fully prior to make-up application.

For a long-lasting make-up in hot weather our International Make-up Artist, Karim Sattar, recommends this technique…

1) Apply Colour Correcting Powder, Loose Powder or Compact Powder first.

Our Powders and Foundation blend together beautifully. Dr. Hauschka 100% natural make-up is free from silicones, so you won’t get a patchy look.

2) You now have a matte base to apply your Foundation.

3) Apply Colour Correcting Powder, Loose Powder or Compact Powder again to set make-up.

4) Apply Blush and/or Bronzer.

5) Mist your make-up with Toner.


Multi-tasking product TIP
At the moment I’m loving Blush Duo 03 sun-kissed nectarine for both cheeks and eyes.


HOT TIPS for a long-lasting eye liner and brows

1) Moisten an angled brush with Toner.

2) Pick up colour with your brush from just the one corner of the darkest shade of your Eyeshadow Palette or Trio.

3) With your brush apply a line to the lower lash line from outer to inner, starting a little further out than the outer edge of your eye.

4) You’ll need to pick up more colour with your brush, then apply to the upper lash line from the outer to the inner and beginning from the extended colour from your lower lash line so the two meet.

5) Define your brows with the residual colour left on the brush and set with Brow & Lash Gel.

If you prefer a more defined upper lash line that will also stay the distance.


Apply Eyeshadow for a matte start, then Eye Definer Pencil and set with Eyeshadow over the top. Alternatively use Liquid Eyeliner.

Long-lasting lipstick

1) Apply Blush to your lips first, which provides a matte base.

2) Use Lip Liner over the entire lip area rather than an outline.

3) Apply your favourite Lipstick, ‘kiss’ a tissue to remove excess, and re-apply.
