Summer Beauty Essentials


Summer_Beauty_Essentials

Summer is my favourite time of year - long sunny days, tweeting birds, ice lollies, barbecues and weekends spent outside, reading.

 I also love how summer means a change of makeup products and new launches. So I thought today I would share with you my summer essentials that I've been loving over the past few months.

Calypso Dry Oil SPF 30 
£4.94 - Amazon here or select Bodycare/Matalan stores
Sunscreen is such an essential for me on a hot days as I have fair skin so I've tried them all pretty much! I hate traditional thick suncreams that leave a sticky film behind so after lots of trial and error with aerosol spray sunscreens and oils I finally found the one with Calypso Dry Oil. I re-purchase this each year and it lasts me all summer (aerosol cans run out so fast). It's hands down the easiest thing to apply as it's a pretty thin oil that requires minimal rubbing in. Also as it's a dry oil it doesn't leave the skin feeling at all greasy which is why I even use it on my face. I highly recommend this to anyone that is after a good easy to apply sunscreen!

Benefit They're Real Push-Up Liner
£18.50 - Feel Unique here
  A fairly recent addition to my makeup bag in the last 3 weeks but one that has amazed me. I love winged out eyeliner but come summer all my favourite eyeliners seem to crease or melt away at the outer corners of my eyes due to either the heat or my eyes watering. No eyeliner has been so waterproof that it doesn't budge, that's until I tried the new Benefit Push-Up Liner. This literally doesn't move all day... like at all?! Also the flexi-tip nib is pretty ingenious as it just hugs the lash line as you apply it making application so easy and flawless. Yes, it does have a high-end price tag but if you want your eyeliner to look just as perfect at 8pm at night as it did at 8am then this will be sooooo worth it! Very, very impressed.

Kiko Essential Bronzer in Warm Melange 200
£16.90 - Kiko here 
Come summer I love a large pan bronzer that I can swirl a large brush into and apply to my face, chest and shoulders. Last year it was a bronzer by NYC (a good budget option) but this year I have discovered the most pretty and wonderful bronzer from Kiko. This is a great non-shimmer bronzer ideal for pale skin tones that just want to add a bit of colour. Also this is so finely milled and the marbling in the pan is very pretty indeed!

Ciate Mosaic Madness Nail Polish
£9.00 - Look Fantastic here
Ciate have gone and done it again and brought out an amazing new range of mosiac nail polishes. There are 4 polishes that make up the collection but Mosaic Madness is my favourite mix of shades - love the mix of matte and silver pieces. So far I've only been apply two coats of it over pastel and nude shades but it can actually be built up to give a true mosaic effect as well. Unique and perfect for summer! I've also been loving so many summer shades from Models Own at the moment.

Vera Wang Princess EDT 100ml
£24.99 - Amazon here
Lastly I had to include perfume as a summer essential as I become obsessed with sweet and floral scents come warmer weather. This summer I've purchased so many new scents but my favourite has to be Vera Wang Princess. I know this is a favourite of many as it's sweet but not sickly sweet and just perfectly floral, a great fragrance for summer. Also for a huge 100ml bottle it's very affordable!

What are your favourite beauty products this summer? 

Other more random summer essentials will be up tomorrow!
