I didn’t really have many new favourites at the end of July so rather than do a monthly favourites I thought I would share with you some of my favourite products and accessories for summer!
There are two bases that I have loved this summer, the first being the Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream. I have been using this nearly everyday as it is much lighter than a foundation. When I have wanted to wear a foundation I have been using the Rimmel Wake Me Up. I didn’t like this when I first tried it because I wasn’t sure about the subtle shimmer it has through it, but for the summer this is great! It gives the perfect amount of goddess glow.
For blushers, these will come as no surprise as they are my favourites every year. They are the Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso and Benefit’s Dandelion. I love these two! Dandelion is a very beautiful pastel pink with a very subtle shimmer and Luminoso is a more peachy blush packed full of shimmer!
On hotter days I like to go for something lighter on my lips. I recently picked up the Tanya Burr lipgloss in the shade I found Nemo and I love it. Its a gorgeous bright coral shade. My second summer lip pick is the Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch. Baby Lips are tinted lip balms so are extremely hydrating whilst giving quite a bit of colour. This shade is a bright barbie pink, it’s quite bold but I like how it looks with my blue eyes.
My favourite nail polishes recently have been two from Tanya Burr cosmetics, the first being Pink ‘n’ Mix, a beautiful pink shade and Fairy Godmother a lovely lilac. I really like the formula of these, very creamy and two coats is enough to make these opaque.
I have also been wearing two shades from the Rimmel London Rita Ora collection a lot lately. Breakfast in Bed which is a pastel green/blue and Lose Your Lingerie which is a pinky nude. These do take a few more layers to build them up but if you have a quick dry top coat they are fine.
My favourite summer time accessories are my hat and sunglasses, both of which I bought cheap from the gift shop on Herm Island. I love this style of hat in the summer to give me some sun protection and also protect my hair. These suit me a lot more than a standard baseball cap. I can’t believe how much I have fallen in love with these sunglasses. I always struggle to find ones that suit my face but these are the perfect size and shape for me.
