SUMMER EDIT | MAKEUP ESSENTIALS







(L-R The Balm Mary Lou-manizer, Nars Copacabana illuminator, Clarins bronzer, Clarins ombre iridescente in aquatic rose and aquatic grey, guerlain lipgloss, rimmel apocalips in stellar)
 
 
 
Summer is my favourite season and I love mixing up the amount of makeup I wear. For the base I think its important to use a lightweight and illuminating base, I love the Max Factor Skin Luminizer foundation and the Clarins illuminating base in apricot. If you want to know more about this foundation you can check out my review here and the clarins product here. Concealer wise I try to keep it quite light and I like to use the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. To make my complexion look warmer I love to use the Clarins Aquatic Treasures bronzer, if you wish to read more about this bronzer, you can do so here. To add a glowy, dewy finish to the skin I love the Nars Copacabana illuminator as a base which is a pearly pink shade and then I apply The Balm's MaryLoumanizer highlighter on top. I then use my ABH dip brow pomade. I don't tend to wear too much eyeshadow when I am on holiday, but if I do I like to use the Clarin's eyeshadow pots. These little pots are very light and convenient for holidays and they are great for a wash of colour all over the lids. I then like to use a coat of mascara, my current favourite has been the Barry M showgirl mascara. I am normally more of a lipstick kind of gal, but in summer I love to wear lipgloss. I love this Guerlain lipgloss and the Rimmel Apocalips in stellar for the summer months.
 
I also think it is important to keep your body hydrated in summer, whenever I am on holiday I love to drink coconut water because it really helps to naturally hydrate and fuel my body for the day. Vita Coco were kind enough to send me a big box of all their new coconut waters.
 
I am so sorry for the lack of posting, I am slowly started to prepare for going on holiday next week - eeek.
