Summer beauty is all about effortless and fresh easy looks. For me summer skin is all about being healthy and glowing, and these are some of the products I use to help my skin get as close to this as possible. Each one of the products below are definitely great for achieving that healthy summer glow look that last all day.
Here are my top 7 favourite summer picks:
1 | Avene Eau Thermale
This is a multitasking water perfect for keeping up in your bag and freshen up during the day. It will help you to beat the summer heat. A quick spray of this mist gives my skin a boots of radiance and makes it feel fresh and nourished. Just spritz it all over your face and you’re done! I cannot live without it during summer!
2 | Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse OR
Another holiday must have. It’s a summer classic but this multi-purpose oil is so great. It’s very lightweight and non-greasy for an oil, which makes it great for using during summer. It moisturises very well and gives a subtle but gorgeous glow to the skin. Juts rub it into the arms and legs to get that summer glow. Plus the scent is divine! It can be also used on hair and face. Try to add a few drops to moisturiser when not wearing foundation, it will give you a lovely glow to the skin.
3 | Lancome Juicy Shaker
I can’t get enough of this. This lip oil is such a joy to use. The packaging is so cute and is lovely to keep in your handbag and reapply it throughout the day. The applicator is so spongy and it feels different to any product I’ve tried. It goes like a dream, smells amazing and gives a lovely shine to the lips and also making them feel hydrated and with no stickiness at all.
This shade, Freedom of peach, gives a beautiful subtle peachy-pink colour and smells like peaches!
4 | Givenchy Healthy Glow Powder
I love this bronzer because it looks natural, gives a lovely warmth and glow to the skin without looking too much or glittery. The formula is creamy and the colour is a sheer and buildable. I sweep it all over the face with a big fluffy brush for a sun kissed effect.
5 | La Roche Posay Anthelios Dry Touch SPF50
We know the importance of making sure our skin is well protected. Our favourite summer activities include pretty much anything involving having fun in the sun and this is by far the most comfortable high protection cream I have ever tried. It’s not sticky or greasy like other sun creams and is great for wearing under makeup. It makes a great primer for foundation. It leaves the skin shine free and without white marks.
6 | Clinique CC Cream
I like to use BB/CC creams rather than foundation because they’re less heavy on the skin and more comfortable to wear on hot summer days. Plus they always contain a high SPF which is so important. I own several BB/CC bases but right now my favourite is the Clinique CC Cream. It has pretty good coverage for a CC Cream it’s moisturising and gives you a healthy glowy finish. It does not feel heavy on the skin and it last pretty well on the skin although if you have very oily skin this may not work for you as it can get too oily a couple of hours after applying.
7 | Essie Fiji Nail polish
White-based nail colours look gorgeous with a bit of a tan. Fiji by Essie is a creamy pale pink with white undertones. The colour is gorgeous on nails and toes although It needs three coats to be opaque and the consistency isn’t the best compared to other Essie shades.
