Summer is all about easy, natural, glowing and effortless looks. These are my favourite products for Summer and the looks to go with it!
1 NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator
This liquid illuminator will give you the ultimate glow, you can use it to highlight your brow and cheek bone by placing it over your foundation or mix it with your foundation for an all over dewy glow. At only £7 it’s a total bargain and the little tube lasts longer than you would think. My favourite colour is Pure Gold.
2 Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick
Summer is all about effortlessness and ABH Liquid Lippy’s give amazing colour and one application lasts all day. My favourite summer colour is Dolce, a nudey peach, perfect for every summer occasion. If you really want your colour to last and don’t want to fall victim to the dreaded crumbly croissant mouth make sure you exfoliate your lips before applying! This can be done with a unused soft bristled mascara brush and Vaseline or a simple sugar scrub. You can make one by mixing the following ingredients:
-A tablespoon of brown sugar or white sugar
-A dash of honey (just enough to make the sugar really stick together) OR a bit of olive oil/coconut oil
-A teeny tiny little drop of vanilla (it makes it smell yummy, but isn’t necessary.)
ABH is priced at $20 which is around £15, these Lipsticks are so popular they sell our fast it took me three attempts to get Dolce!
3 Clarins Multi Active Day – Lotion
Although I love a bargain its sometimes worth it to pay that little bit extra when it comes to your skin. Clarins Multi Active Day Lotion is light and easy to apply leaving you moisturised, protected to SPF 15 but not feeling sticky or weighed down. This is priced at £42 but if you shop at Boots they always have great offers and bonus’s on making the value for money great!
4 Brown Mascara
Sometimes black mascara can be a little heavy and summer is all about the “no make up” look. If you are looking for a relaxed summer day time look or want a look that will look great on those light summer nights I would recommend using brown mascara on your lower lashes. It really opens up your eyes while keeping a natural look. Everyone has their favourite mascara wands but I would recommend Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Mascara, the soft brush hits every lash with out creating too much separation. Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Mascara is available at most super markets and high street pharmacy’s for £7.99.
5 Clarins Multi Blush
If you want a light dewy look cream blusher is a must, Clarins Multi Blush is applied as a cream but transforms into a light powder upon application. It is easy to use and the cute compact is perfect to slip into your bag on those long summer days out. It lasts really well in the heat and is something I pack for every holiday when I want to feel glam around the pool or at a party. My favourite shade is 05 Rose and this amazing blush is priced at £18.50 but will last you all summer long.
