I’ve been testing so many new products recently for the summer season that I have totally kickstarted a new found love for beauty. I’ve been doing anything to achieve healthy dewy skin and golden eyes! I wanted to round up all of my current summer beauty favourites to share with you ready for the next heatwave.
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation – I have gone back to using my trusty sheer glow foundation and I am in love all over again! This is easily one of my all time favourite bases. The formula is so perfect for summer, it’s lightweight yet with high coverage and adds a beautiful dewy glow to the skin. The finish is so seamless I don’t know why I ever stopped using it.
Lancome Matte Shaker in Pink Power* – After being a huge fan of the cult Juicy Shakers I am super excited about the matte collection. The colours are all quite bold and perfect for summer looks. I love wearing these with neutral, bronzed makeup and then adding a pop of colour to my lips. The formula applies quite glossy but soon dries down to a matte yet they feel barely there on the lips. Of course they smell (and taste) totally delicious too!
The Balm Mary Lou Manizer – No summer makeup bag is complete without an appearance from this gorgeous champagne highlighter. The glow is so intense that you only need a light hand to apply it to the cheeks, collar bones and down the nose. I recommend this to everyone!
Lancome Pro Hydra Glow Primer* – This year I have been obsessed with the Hydra Glow primer from Lancome. It’s super hydrating underneath makeup and adds a beautiful glow to my skin. I love the pearlescent formula for brightening up my complexion for the summer. I rarely go a day without applying it!
Lush Lip Tint in Sunkissed – When it comes to summer ready lips this beautiful tint is packed full of exotic ingredients. The colour has a rose golden shimmer to it which isn’t something I wouldn’t usually go for but it’s great for mixing up my everyday makeup! I love how nourishing, yet unique this balm is.
NUXE Multi-Purpose Dry Oil – One product I swear by in the summer is a multi-purpose oil. This NUXE offering instantly nourishes the skin and hair. I apply a little bit of this all over before heading out to enhance a sun kissed healthy glow and on to the ends of my hair for a softer, super healthy finish. It’s so glossy without being sticky at all.
Jo Malone Blackberry and Bay Perfume – Although this is actually a autumnal scent I absolutely love this for the summer months! I have the matching moisturiser too and together they smell so refreshing. This perfume is so light and pretty I can’t imagine a summer without it.
Nars Isolde Eyeshadow Duo – This one is definitely a nostalgic beauty product for me! I love this golden duo all year around but you can definitely use it to it’s strengths in the summer to enhance a golden glow. The shades look beautiful together or worn solo for a shimmery, bronzed lid.
