So i thought today i would show you guys some of my saving graces this summer so far. I don't know about you but in summer i hate to wear my full face of make up because its too hot for one, and well, all my good work seems to run off my face within about 10 minutes of applying. So with that in mind i have mastered a few lighter options that i am truly loving.
Bodyshop Coconut Bodymist
Johnsons Face Wipes
Ambre Solaire False Tan spray
Coconut Body Butter
Johnsons wipes are a life saver to me, any beauty blogger will probably be cursing me here as i hear wipes are apparently terrible for you, but these ones? I love, they smell great, do not bring me out in spots like some others do and they are great for getting every last bit of make up off at the end of a long hot day.
And the Ambre solaire false spray tan is the best i have tried. Very little (or no) streaking, dries fast and comes as a really natural colour rather than a bright-you've been-tangoed orange.
For the Face: Make up
L'Oreal Nude Magique BB Cream
L'Oreal Million Lashes
Bourjois Touch Illuminance
Coral & Teal Nail polish
Max Factor Touch Up
Rimmel Eyebrow pencil
Collection 2000 Fix Me Up
Then of course a bit of Max factor Master Touch concealer as these bags don't cover themselves. I definetly need help in the ark bags department. This one i have used and re bought multiple times. Tis good and value for money
Now, Benefit Hoola has been with me for years and yet i have never bothered with it much, until now. This is so great for giving you that tanned look and is now constatly adorning my face to make me look like i've just spent the weekend in a beautiful Tropical location. I then like to top it off with a bit of Bourjouis Touch illuminance to give a little sparkle as Hoola is quite a matt colour and this is great for a little light catching.
And Lastly in the facial department, this little bottle of Fix Me Up by Collection 2000.
You spray a few squirts over your made up face and it works like a hairspray for the face. It actually works, i was shocked and impressed. Seeing as i have to draw my eyebrows on every day (Rimmel eyebrow pencil above) (i'm severly eyebrow challenged having overplucked as a teenager and they never grew back!!) this stuff makes sure they don't slide down my face in a puddle of sweat. Perfect for the summer!
Any good mascara is a must for me, this one i got on sale and i don't love if im honest, it has microfibres which are supposed to build you eyelashes up, but these microfibers are terrible if you have contacts in or suffer from hayfever as i fins they make my eyes extra irritable.
And then some teal or coral nail polish... my favourites! Definitely my summer colours!!
Alberto Balsam Coconut shampoo and Conditioner
Schwarzkopf Beach Matt
Obviously when i saw coconut shampoo i had to try it and even though it may not be the totally best shampoo i've ever used (its literally £1!!) its cheap and smells super cheerful and feels cleansing and gets all product build up out so it works for me.
The last product i've discovered this years is this:
So there we have it, my summer essentials!
