What are your summer beauty essentials? My summer beauty essentials are quite different to those that I use in the winter. It’s a good excuse to have even more makeup and products isn’t it? In the summer my skin is tanned and isn’t as dry so I can get away with wearing less make up. It’s often quite a relief to not have to put foundation on every morning when I always seem to be in a rush or have a toddler hanging off my leg. I am however quite aware that I’m developing some fine lines. To combat that I’m trying to take better care of my skin including wearing a factor 30 SPF daily. My hair is also not in the best condition after years and years of dyeing it, so I am using products to help with those annoying crispy, frazzled ends.
Come and have a peek at my summer beauty essentials.
Laura Mercier – Foundation Primer Radience I don’t tend to wear foundation in the summer unless I’m going out, out which is rare. I do however wear this primer as it gives a lovely glow. I will sometimes wear it on it’s own or under bronzing powder.
Rimmel Kate sculpting face kit- coral – This is a fab budget friendly bronzing powder that creates a similar shade to my favourite Dallas by Benefit. It’s handy having the highlighter and blusher together and definitely saves time in the morning rush.
Alpha H Liquid Gold I’m using this to help with the patches of melasma and I think I am noticing a little difference. My skin is also feeling smoother.
NYX sculpt and highlight brow contour pencil I have been growing my eyebrows for years now but they still need a helping hand and this one has some staying power. If I go to bed with it on, it’s still there in the morning. The highlighter is a bonus.
ARROW waterproof eyeliner- Bright now This is a new discovery from my Birchbox. It’s all natural so it gets a big thumbs up but it’s also a good nights sleep in a pencil. I love it.
L’Oreal Paris – Miss Baby Roll Mascara – Black Waterproof I forgot to add this to my picture but I needed to mention it. It’s the best waterproof mascara I think I have ever used. I usually find them clumpy and not actually very waterproof. This one however stayed on with jumping in and out of the pool. It also looks so good I still sometimes use it now we are back.
And that makes up my summer beauty essentials. Well that and a tonne of moisturising lotion but I will save my favourite moisturising lotions for another post.
