Ever noticed how it looks out of place to have a full face of heavy makeup while having a picnic or chilling at a braai? Here’s what to do instead.

  1. Swop your regular foundation for something semi-sheer like Esteé Lauder Double Wear Light, R480 (Esteé Lauder counters andonline). It stays in place all day but it doesn’t look heavy – in fact, it’s near invisible when applied correctly.
  2. On your cheeks, aim for a wash of glowing colour rather than a pronounced blush. One of my recent favourites has been Physicians Formula Nude Wear Touch Of Glow, R230 (Dis-Chem) for a radiant, glowing complexion.
  3. Do wear a bright lipstick in a shade that flatters you. Since you won’t have that much colour on the rest of your face, it will look striking and elegant.
