We’ve almost stepped into those hopefully glorious summer months! But with warm weather comes the potential sweat, spots and sun damaged skin. This summer we want our skin to breathe and look gorgeously glowy! With that in mind, we present to you our favourite summer products which will help you achieve a sun-kissed dewy look which we all want and need.
Cream or liquid blush is great to opt for in the summer over the classic powder blush. Cream blush is easier to blend to create a more natural flush to the cheeks. We love low maintenance make up so anything we can easily do with our hands or cosmetic sponge is always a win. Our current favourite is the Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm (£21.00). Mistake proof, perfect to create a natural healthy glow this summer and small enough to pop into our hand bag for touch ups!
Wearing heavy foundation during the hot summer months isn’t always the best idea. The built up of dirt and sweat can cause mature breakouts and enlarged pores. Also, we need to protect our skin from the sun! Therefore a lightweight, tinted moisturiser with SPF is the best option for us. Our current favourite is the Bareminerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturiser SPF30 (£24.00). This tinted moisturiser provides us a sheer coverage with a gorgeous luminous finish. We love the lightweight feeling and how the tinted moisturiser gives our skin both hydration and protection.
Bronzer can help make your face glow with warm radiance. However, if you apply bronzer incorrectly it can look muddy. That’s why we suggest the Hoola Matte Bronzer Powder by Benefit (£27.50). Hoola Bronzer is one of the top selling bronzers in the UK and known for how easy it is to apply. Available in four different shades, the Hoola bronzer is perfect to add some warm radiance. The compact even comes with a small mirror and brush, perfect for on the go!
Even if we have absolutely no plans to take a dip in a pool or ocean this summer, waterproof mascara is still on the cards. The last thing you want is to be out in the sun and have mascara dripping down your face! But with waterproof mascara there’s no need to worry about smudges, you can swim and sweat all day long! Our current favourite waterproof mascara is the Lash Sensational Sky High Waterproof Mascara from Maybelline (£9.99). Lightweight, suitable for sensitive eyes and gives you gorgeously long lashes – what’s not to love?
We hope we’ve inspired you to update your make up collection for the summer and achieve that gorgeously radiant look that you deserve! Stay fabulous!
