WHAT I’VE BEEN WEARING FOR SUMMER
I took the opportunity whilst the sun was out last week to take my photographs outside, using my grandparents marble table. Even though summer is drawing to an end I wanted to share with you everything that i’ve been loving over the summer from fragrance, to palettes to long lasting liquid lipsticks.
I picked this up whilst I was in the states at the start of summer and haven’t stopped using it since. It’s full coverage, glow-giving and easy to use. I have been mixing this with a liquid foundation for days where I need my makeup to last but for everyday summer musings this is my go-to base.
I’ve gone through about 3 of these in the past, I love it, especially during the summer. On hot summer days I reach for this because it’s lightweight and conceals my dark under eye circles.
Nars Laguna bronzer is a cult classic, Nars came out with a limited edition Tiara collection. Their original laguna bronzer has been spun with fine golden shimmer. This has been my go-to bronzer for the warmer months, it gives a gorgeous sun-kissed warmth to the skin and I’m obsessed with the tiny Ita contouring brush, how cute?
I’ve gone through many bottles of this stuff and have a few backups for when I run out. This facial spray is perfect for the summer because it pro-longs the wear of makeup, even on those hot sweaty days.
This summer i’ve been embracing glitter quite a lot. I love the Urban Decay Heavy Metal glitter liners and the shade Distortion looks gorgeous in the inner corners to highlight.
Warm toned shadows are my go-to, even during the summer. I’ve been wearing this palette constantly on my eyes, as smokey eyes and as summer appropriate glitter looks. The mix of warm and blush tones are ideal for the summer months and into the autumn.
I have loved Blackberry and Bay by Jo Malone for sometime now, it’s a really warming summer scent. I’ve been getting a lot of compliments whilst wearing it.
Not a summer essential but an everyday necessity. These rose gold lash curlers are everything i’ve ever dreamed of. You need them in your life.
Jimmy Choo Sunglasses:
This summer I decided to treat myself to a pair of designer sunglasses and it was love at first sight with these pink iridescent Jimmy Choo sunnies.
Metallic lips have been a huge trend this summer and i’ve tried a few from many different brands, my favourite go-to metallic lip has been one from Kylie Cosmetics, in King K. Its a a gorgeous bronze nude shade with gold shimmer. It’s beautiful for summer.
Another fave liquid lipstick comes from Anastasia Beverly Hills and it’s another nude shade. This summer i’ve been on the hunt for my perfect nude shade and ABH may have just the shade, Naked. It’s the perfect mixture of pink and brown tones and I adore it.
What have been your favourite summer beauty products? Have you tried any of my faves?
