In my opinion, you don’t need a lot of beauty products throughout the summer, all you do need is the right ones that work really, really well. I’ve rounded up my list of 10 beauty summer favourites that will make your skin look fresh, bright and add a little glam at the same time.
TOM FORD – SOLEIL BLANC SHIMMER BODY OIL: Short summer dresses means there is a lot of focus on your legs which means you should probably jazz them up a little bit. I love rubbing this Tom Ford shimmer oil all over my legs to add a beautiful glow. Tip: works great for photoshoots!
TOM FORD – SOLEIL BLANC EAU DE PARFUME: For some reasons during the summer months, I don’t like wearing my usual go-to scent. I like something a bit lighter and fresh which is the epitome of this This Tom Ford perfume, it embodies those long summer days at the beach and has warm notes of floral amber.
PHILOSOPHY MICRO-DELIVERY DETOXIFYING OXYGEN PEEL: This skincare set combines two products in one, to deliver the purifying benefits of a detoxifying mask plus the brightening benefits of an oxygen facial. My skin is left radiant and revitalized, while pores appear smaller and less-noticeable. The charcoal draws out dirt and impurities, as barley leaf extract delivers the first burst of oxygen to the skin. Step II completes the detox, with a second boost of re-energizing oxygen in a light and airy foam that activates on contact. I’ve been using this a lot after a stressful week or a weekend in the sun!
BAREMINERALS RESTORATIVE RICH CREAM: You all know my love for bareMinerals skincare line by now, but I just want to reiterate that this is one of my favourite day-time face creams. I would only recommend this for a dry skin type since it is a bit heavier of a cream or if you’ve been out in the sun for a while.
MAYBELLINE MASTER STROBING STICK HIGHLIGHTER: I love a good highlighter and this one from Maybelline strobing stick is the perfect addition to my cheek bones right now. It’s easy to apply and blends really nicely with your fingers.
TWEEZERMAN PRO CURL EYELASH CURLER: I’ve been on the search for a good eyelash curler for quite some time and after purchasing this guy, the search was over. Provides a nice full curl and hello – it’s rose gold!
SMASHBOX PHOTO FINISH LASH PRIMER: I find mascara primer makes a huge difference in amping up my lashes. I’ve tried a few that have worked but tend to leave my lashes clumpy, however, this one from Smash Box does not! It’s not only works it has a really nice brush to allow lashes to separate and not clump together.
MAC SIN LIPSTICK: Nothing better than a bold lip to match those lashes in the summer. I’m currently loving this dark purple-red from MAC.
MAC PREP + PRIME FIX SPRAY: A lightweight water mist that gently soothes and refreshes skin and finishes makeup. No need to sweat that gorgeous makeup off during sweltering hot days, finish your face off with my favourite set spray for long lasting wear.
