Achieving the appearance of wearing ‘no make-up’ with make-up is one of this summer’s biggest trends. Since lockdown meant less social events and more loungewear, wearing a full face of make-up became, well, utterly pointless really. Which is actually great for your skin! The focus has shifted to taking care of your skin; to achieve an even, bright and youthful complexion with minimal make-up: skinimalism. But where do you start? Here’s a few tips, tricks and treatments for less make-up and more time for you.

But first, skincare

It all starts here. A healthy skincare routine, designed around your skin type, is the best way to rebalance and replenish your skin. Cleanse, exfoliate, tone, moisturise and of course not forgetting our friend – good old SPF. Incorporating serums, masks and a night regime can also be a big benefit but speak to a skin specialist first to determine which products are right for you.

Think facial

Your daily skincare routine can be complemented by a monthly facial. With professional products and a skin programme specifically designed around you, it’ll boost your complexion by increasing cell renewal and blood circulation as well as promote relaxation (and we all know what stress does to your skin).

The magic of make-up

Sometimes you don’t need a lot. A good tinted moisturiser with added SPF can go a long way, especially alongside a bit of liquid highlighter and some lip balm. Invest in a decent primer too for an even skin tone. Add a bit of blusher for some rosy-cheek action and you can be good to go!

Brushed up brows

Another summer trend: the brushed-up brow look. Focusing on enhancing your natural hairs, this look creates a bit of drama and a natural fluffed up fullness to your brows. How to achieve this you ask? HD Brows latest treatment: BrowSculpt. Brow lamination creates fuller looking brows with uniform precision only using your existing hair. No needles, just a 60-minute treatment that lasts up to six weeks.

Of course, the HD Brows experience provides tinting, shaping and make-up application* suited to your face shape, style and skin tone – so you have two options to choose from. If you prefer a bit of brow pencil or powder, your therapist can show you the right product and correct application to achieve that natural look.

*Make-up application not included in BrowSculpt treatment.

Let’s lift those lashes

Who wants to wear mascara anymore anyway? It flakes, it smudges, it leaves a line under your eye without you realising… not to mention the weird goop build up in the corner of your eyes! Say goodbye to it all with the LVL lash lift. Your lashes are straightened at the root, then lifted and tinted, creating the appearance of thicker, longer looking lashes. Who needs eye make-up when you have these game-changing sister companies providing treatments like LVL and HD Brows? Your lashes will look lifted for 6 – 8 weeks, plus you get an hour of shut-eye whilst you’re having them done too: win-win!

Fancy something a little extra?

The beauty industry has a plethora of treatments that create glowing, youthful complexions. CACI non-surgical facial toning being one of them. However, if you’re more concerned with having an even skin tone and texture, there are multiple options available:

  • Microdermabrasion – a deep cleanse and exfoliation combined with LED light therapy for tissue repair and healing
  • Ultrasonic peeling – a deeper exfoliation and cleanse that revitalises dull complexions
  • Hydratone face mask – a nourishing hydration and toning, working with microcurrent LED technology to restore muscle tone and firmness
  • Lip booster – for plump, full lips without invasive injections; a unique wrinkle comb targets fine lines and wrinkles too
