How have we coped up until now in the heat?
Happy Hour, self-tan and…your eye make-up. These are just a few things that sadly don’t last as long as we’d like in summer. Factor in humidity and the struggle gets real as your eyeliner transfers to your eyelids and eyeshadow balls up in the crease. One old-school solution was to start with a slick of primer – something that is brilliant for mattifying and holding make-up in place elsewhere on your face but a dollop too far makes hard work of blending an eyeshadow over the top.
Enter a new kind of eye colour that’s not just long lasting and humidity-proof but makes paring down your make-up regime look REALLY good. One stroke of BareMinerals 5-in-1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow, £19, has, you guessed it, five pretty genius benefits: it lays down just the right amount of primer to put the brakes on smudging and creasing; light reflective pigments add a luminous sheen and brighten discoloured lids; nourishing skincare ingredients including mango seed butter smooth delicate eyelid skin while softening the look of fine lines; a mineral SPF15 protects against UVA and UVB rays and, perhaps most importantly, its eye-popping pigments stay faithfully yours for a whopping 12-hours.
As if that wasn’t enough, the four new shades mean the world’s your oyster for how you want to pull off the BareMinerals 5-in-1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow.

Wear Luminous Pearl alone for a brightening, barely there look.
Exotic Lilac looks pretty as a subtle wash.
Meanwhile, a bold choice would be to layer Smoky Expresso and Rich Camel underneath a similar shade of bareMinerals Eyecolour for a va-va-voom smoky. What’s not to love?
