♡ Summer beauty essentials ♡

July 09, 2017

 Over the hit and miss weather of the uk, we've finally hit summer. It might not be like LA or Spain's summer but we occasionally get nice weather, some sun and no wind! It's really not much but we do appreciate what we get. I may not be a summer fan myself but I do like to change up my makeup routine to match the season and make my skin look better! 

I do the little things that just really make a difference in making me look summer ready. Changing your makeup routine to rotate around the seasons is so important as I don't want the full matte look during summer I want more sheer, bronze and glowy look and that's exactly what I try achieve. 

Before any makeup, you need a primer. Primer is such an important step to makeup because it can make or break your look. That's why I'm obsessed with the becca backlight priming filter. This gives your foundation such a glowy and flawless look to it. I just always choose this and it's soon became one of my holy grail, it's incredible. 

Next into my favourite part of makeup; highlighters! I love glowing it the gods and what better time to do it than summer when the suns out & hits the glow perfectly. I have to say I am in love with my Dior nude air luminizer. I'm not going to rave on how much I love this as I've posted a review so you should defiantly check that out!

In summer, I love adding a little bit of colour to my cheeks & the best way to do it is my trusty sleek rose gold blush. It's such a beautiful colour with the gold reflex in it, I'm just so in love with this product I live by it in the summer. 

Browsing is such a key step in the summer I think everyone knows that. I've recently got my makeup revolution contour kit but my holy grail bronzer has to be the too faced chocolate soleill bronzer. It's a perfect shade for my pale skin, complimenting my cheeks with a sun kissed look, I'm just in love! 

For mascara, going heavy isn't a good idea during heat, my eyes can't take it! I always go back to my benefit they're real tinted primer! I got this along time ago in an elle magazine & it's amazing, it's a brown tint that Lengths the lashes without making them a jet black or heavy & clumpy, just making them natural! Almost a your lashes but better if that's a thing. 

Last but not least I cannot forget Lips. Choosing a lip product was vitually impossible because I wear the same selection of nudes every season but one nude I love wearing when I'm looking more glowy and bronzed is either my Dior lip maximiser for the most perfect glossy, pouty lips or a nyx soft matte lip cream in either 'cairo' a beautiful soft light nude or 'london' a brown toned soft nude as they're both amazing and some of my go to products. 

I hope you all enjoyed me sharing my summer essentials, and if you haven't tried any of these products I 100% recommend them as they're all so amazing, I love them with all of my heart and hope you all do.

  2. I've been wanting to get my hands on a good blush set, I never use blushes, I just contour. I use the Sleek contour kit and it is beautiful and so pigmented. The highlight is amazing. I may have to try out their blush.
