Mastering the art of summer makeup is no easy feat – not only do you have the heat and humidity to contend with, but there’s also figuring out which products won’t melt off and which will provide just the right amount of coverage to prevent you looking like a cakey mess. So who better to ask for her summer makeup tips than Huda Kattan? A Dubai dweller who knows just what it takes to always look flawless and fabulous – no matter how high the mercury rises – she also happens to be the creator of some of the most long-lasting, sweat-proof formulas on the market.
“I’m all or nothing! It’s either no makeup or full glam. And when I go full glam, it needs to last me throughout the day,” Kattan tells us. “This summer-proof look is actually my everyday look because, being from Dubai, everything has to be able to beat the heat!” Here, she exclusively reveals to Savoir Flair how to get the look in eight simple steps. Bronzers at the ready.

Apply a lighter shade of ‘The Overachiever Concealer’ under your eyes and on your chin, nose, and forehead to brighten your features. Blend it out using a dampened ‘The Basic B Blending Sponge’.
Use the sculpt end of our ‘Sculpt & Shape Brush’ to apply the ‘Tantour’ contour and bronzer cream under the cheekbones and around the chin and forehead. Use the shape end of the brush to blend it out until the desired bronzed effect is achieved.
Apply a thick layer of the ‘Easy Bake' powder under the eye using the bake end of our ‘Bake & Blend Brush’. Leave it to set for three minutes, then use the blend end of the brush to dust off any excess powder.
