Summer Favourites

Hi, my beauties hope all is well? Since I’ve been MIA recently and not been uploading my monthly favourites I’d thought I’d share with you today the things I loved and used this summer.

Makeup

Summer Faves - Makeup

Clinique High Impact Mini Mascara

This mascara has been my go mascara this summer, it instantly lifts lashes and adds volume and thickness. It doesn’t clump and lasts all day.

Nivea Tinted Moisturiser -Natural

One of my all-time favourite beauty products, its perfect for summer as it’s a lightweight formula that contains an SPF. It provides skin with a light coverage that looks like your skin but only more radiant.

L’Oréal infallible Sticks in 501 -Oh My Jewels & 210 Cappuccino.

I use these beauty sticks on a daily basis I use the 501 oh my jewels shade as a highlighter as it provides skin with a subtle highlighter that gives you a dewy look. I use the shade 210 cappuccino as a contour shade. It’s rather warm toned so only a little bit is needed as if not it can make you look orange. It definitely adds warmth and definition to my face.

Sleek Makeup Face Form – Medium

This Palette is my go-to face and eye Palette containing a contour shade that is a perfect colour as it’s an ashy colour, it also contains a bronzer and a highlighter. I’ve also been using it as an eyeshadow palette this summer by wearing the bronzer shade in the crease of my eye and the highlighter shade on my lid. I love a multitasking palette saving time, money and room in my makeup bag what more could you ask for.

Sleek blush by 3 – Lace

This blush palette is perfect for summer as it contains two coral colours and a pink which look great when paired with a tan. This palette contains two matte and one shimmer highly pigmented blushes.

Summer Favourites - Concealer

Along Came Betty All Concealed Concealer Kit.

When clearing out my makeup I came across this forgotten treasure. It contains two concealers (a cream one & a solid one) and a brightening under eye setting powder. The cream concealer is perfect for concealing under eyes and even minimises the look of my eye bags. Which is something I definitely need because sleep is something of a luxury these days? The solid concealer is perfect at concealing imperfections such as spots and cuts. I love this concealer kit and will probably cry when it’s gone as it’s been discontinued.

Summer Favourites - Bronzer

St Moritz Bronzing Powder Light

Another product that I found while clearing out. Don’t you just love a good old clear out especially when you find so many forgotten treasures? This bronzer is one of my favourites at providing a sun-kissed glow as its quite shimmery you only need a little bit and you look glowing as well as sun-kissed.

Skincare

Summer Faves - Skincare

Vita Coco Coconut Oil

My holy grail beauty product as I not only use it as a moisturiser I use it as a hair mask. When used as a Moisturiser it leaves skin soft and reduces the appearance of stretch marks.

Jack Wills English Velvet Body Lotion

This body lotion leaves my skin so soft and keeps skin moisturised for roughly 24 hours. It has a rich texture more like a body butter. It absorbs easily into the skin and has a pleasant fragrance to it that smells like roses. (Floral scents aren’t really my thing).

Summer Favourites - Mud Mask

N-Spa Skin Glow Mud Mask

I love this mask and try to use once on a weekly basis. With kaolin Clay and charcoal as it’s main ingredients, this mud masks helps draw out impurities, unblocking pores, and reducing the appearance of them to leave skin looking more radiant and clear. After using this mask my skin looks more radiant and the appearance of my pores less noticeable. It leaves my skin feeling smooth.

Fake Tan

Garnier Summer Body Gradual Tan Moisturiser – Light

We’ve been quite lucky this year and had lots of sunshine. So fake tan wasn’t needed as much as normal. I used this tan on my legs so it matched the rest of my body. It has a nice apricot smell and leaves your skin feeling moisturised.

Bondi Sands Self Tanning Foam in Dark

I love this self-tanning foam as it has a gorgeous coconut smell that just reminds you of a holiday. It leaves a natural looking tan and fades gradually.

Thanks for Reading
