My Summer Beauty Essentials

I thought it would be fun to share with you the beauty products I especially enjoy in Summer. These products really perk me up and help me get the most out of Summer.



Fragrance


Zoella Blissful Mistful Fragrance Body Mist
Superdrug

I love this body mist. To me, it's a drugstore dupe for Marc Jacobs Daisy Perfume. It has the exact scent, to me. It's so floral and warm but not fake, or cheap smelling. It's such a summer scent and lasts a long time on the skin/clothing. Gorgeous for anyone.

Skincare


Caudalie Beauty Elixir 
Space NK

This face spritz is the perfect handbag skincare essential for Summer. It is so refreshing and hydrating. I wouldn't spritz over makeup personally, but maybe on you it might not affect your makeup. It has a beautiful minty, grape, fresh scent that is so uplifting and refreshing. 




The Body Shop Vitamin C Energising Face Spritz
The Body Shop

This an another beautiful face spritz that wakes up dull, dehydrated skin. It has a orange-citrus scent that is so invigorating. Again, I personally wouldn't spray over makeup. 


 


Super Facialist Salicylic Acid Pore Purifying Clay Mask
Boots

Clay masks are great a deep clean a few times a week. This one is my favourite. It dries very tight almost instantly and you can feel it working. Once you remove it, the skin is soft, clear and brighter. Great for those with acne, or a few breakouts to help treat and calm them.


 


The Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser
The Body Shop

I've shown this quite a few times on the blog so I won't drag on. This is the perfect moisturiser for Summer. It's a light gel-cream texture that absorbs quickly. It hydrates,brightens and adds radiance to the skin instantly. Great for all skin types


Makeup




Illamasqua Hydra Veil Primer
Selfridges

This primer is amazing. It hydrates and preps the skin ready for foundation. My base always looks flawless after applying this primer. This is great for normal/dry skins that want more moisture in their base. It's a soft gel texture that absorbs quickly and leaves the skin feeling soft. It's great for Summer because it's nice and light. 




Sleek Makeup Blush By 3 - Californ.i.a
Superdrug

This is possibly my all time favourite drugstore blush. That's a big statement! This palette contains three cream blushers that are so creamy, pigmented and flattering on the skin. They can be applied sheer. If you don't like creamy blushes you probably won't like this. I personally love cream cheek products. I like to apply the shade on the right to my cheeks, then apply the middle shade over top, because it adds a glowy sheen to the cheeks. Not in a glittery obvious way though. 




Lush Feeling Younger Skin Tint
Lush Cosmetics

I love this product! It is a light reflecting cream that adds glow and brings light to wherever you place it. I apply it under foundation to my cheek bones, cupids bow, chin and tip of the nose. If you don't like powder highlighters this is a more subtle way to add a glow. It's a white cream with pink iridescence.  



Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation -3
Selfridges

This is my all time favourite foundation. For me, it's perfect all year round, but I love it especially in the Summer. It has a natural to dewy finish, depending on what's applied under and over it. It helps gives luminosity to the face in a subtle way. There's no shimmer or glitter. There's a reason a lot of people love it! It is expensive, but i saved up to buy it and it's worth it. A little goes a long way as well, so you don't feel caked in foundation but you get good coverage. 




Revlon Colourburst Lacquer Balm - Demure
Boots/ Superdrug

This is one of my go to lip products in Summer. It's a light wash of colour on the lips with a little bit of shimmer. Your hair won't get stuck in it and it has a beautiful finish. 

Thank you for reading!
