What... 'Nudies Bloom' three-in-one dew sticks from Nudestix.

Why... Subtly coloured, that fresh-faced no makeup-makeup look is all but a sweep away.

In 30+ degree heat, us Londoners don't have the luxury of opting out of a dewy look by default – sweaty top lips and melting makeup mishaps are all but a tube ride away. However, there is a way to do dewy with intention; a kind of subtle 'dewy' that lends itself to a look more fresh-faced than flustered.

It arrives as the latest launch from barely-there makeup brand, NUDESTIX...

A quartet of multi-tasking balms, dubbed 'Nudies Bloom' – in subtle Sweet Peach Peony, blushed pink Cherry Blossom Babe, warm Tiger Lily Queen and deep red Poppy Girl (created by make up artist, Mary Phillips) – they're designed to help you on your way to that #IWokeUpLikeThis au naturel look. 

Designed to work just as hard on the cheeks as they do the eyes and lips, these multi-hyphenate (natch, it's 2019) balms imbue sheer buildable colour to bring a bright glow to all skin tones; to blend, the stick comes complete with a handy duel-ended brush. Opt for Sweet Peach Peony on no foundation days to bring a tint to the cheeks and Poppy Girl to bring a rich hue to the lips after hours.

Mix, match and build on the colour for a glow with intention:
