The Elate Edit
Whether the official start of your Summer means your first beach day, your first weekend getaway, or your first backyard vegan BBQ of the season –Summer tends to be a time of ease and simplicity, especially when it comes to your beauty rituals.
Here are the top 5 capsule beauty essentials for your most sustainable Summer yet...
1. Makeup Primer
Applying a makeup primer after your SPF, and before your sheer foundation creates a confident start to your sustainable Summer beauty rituals. Knowing that your foundation will stay put because of the primer best suited for your skin type allows you to go throughout your day without needing to refresh your complexion–with the exception of reapplying sunscreen.
Refine Mattifying Primer helps absorb excess oil for those with an oily skin type. This sustainably packaged makeup primer leaves your skin matte but doesn’t dry it out, because in order to have healthy, well-balanced skin you still want to maintain some natural oil. Enjoy this mattifying primer under any of Elate’s foundations for a smooth matte finish this Summer.
Prep Primer soothes and hydrates all skin types as it helps keep your fresh-tint foundation lasting all day. Vegan hyaluronic acid assists in retaining water for extra hydration and aloe calms your skin-especially in the hot sunny days. Prep Primer also supports the skin when used at night for those very same reasons! We love it for an after-sun care product!
2. Lightweight, Sheer Foundation
Allow your skin to show off and breathe this Summer by using a lightweight foundation with skin-loving ingredients. Apply a sheer foundation like Refresh Foundation, with vegan hyaluronic acid to keep your skin feeling hydrated while titanium dioxide and zinc oxide give your skin extra protection. Our abundantly-loved Refresh Foundation blends out into an even skin tone without weighing the skin down or covering up the unique features that make you, YOU.
3. Brow Balm
A hint of colour can make all the difference when it comes to your brows. To frame the eyes and balance out your face in a nice, natural way use a shade of Brow Balm that is close to the colour of your natural eyebrows. Using Brow Balm, as opposed to a brow pencil, gives a soft and subtle look as it fills in the colour and blends smoothly into the skin. It’s so easy to use!
Brow Balm is a multi-tasking product that adds a natural colour to your brows, while keeping them nicely in place throughout the day.
4. Water-Resistant Mascara
A gentle, water resistant mascara is essential for any Summer Capsule Beauty ritual. Mascara instantly opens up the eyes and creates a fresh, well-balanced look with just one swipe along the lashes. For a Summer style that is more bold, apply a few extra clump-free coats. Essential Mascara comes in a versatile black or warm brown for the most natural looking lashes this Summer.
5. Multi-Use and Refillable Creme Blush
The philosophy of Capsule Beauty, especially during the Summer months, is to use what you already have in multiple ways to reduce excess waste and make things more simple. A refillable creme blush is the ultimate multi use beauty essential. Creme blush can be used as a moisturizing cheek colour, creme eyeshadow, or even a lip colour –which is a must-have travel essential in our books!
When it comes to creating your Summer Capsule Beauty the most important things to remember are to keep it simple, use what you have, and have fun!
