Summer Beauty Essentials

March 27, 2015

After a very very long Winter, Summer is finally starting to show its face. How heavenly does that feel! Now we can look forward to more bright colors and less navy blues and burgundies, refreshing fragrances than rich body butters and dewy tinted moisturisers than face oils.

Coming your way today is my list on Summer Beauty Essentials that will have you all set for this sunny season.

Sunscreen is definitely on the top of this list. Although, sunscreen should be an essential all year round, but in summers you are at a greater risk to get sun burns. Look for a sunscreen aimed for your skin type. If you are oily, find an oil-free option. If you have dry skin, buy something more rich. You can also get a moisturiser or foundation with an spf. That will save your time in the morning! La Roche Posay is one brand that makes amazing sunscreen for all skin types. They do not feel heavy on the face as well.

With all the heat and sweat, a foundation should be avoided on day to day basis. Instead, opt for a lightweight BB cream or tinted moisturiser, which have a dewy finish. It will give your face a natural coverage, minimising your imperfections yet keep your skin breathing.

With Summer, unfortunately comes frizzy hair, everyone’s nightmare. To keep hair tamed, luscious and glossy is what we all want. Pure argan oil keeps all that hair unruliness in control while making everything more manageable. Make sure you include it in your haircare routine this season!

Who does not want a sunkissed glow? Bronzers! We all need it in Summer. Benefit Hoola or Too Faced Soleil Matte Bronzer are both fabulous options. Sweep either one of it on your cheeks, forehead and chin to give yourself a natural tanned, healthy look.

Spring 2015 is all about feathered electric lips. Get yourself a couple of bright coloured lipsticks in coral, pink, red, orange and after application soften the edges for that feathered lips trend. Make heads turn with this irresistible look! Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids are an amazing range of affordable bright shades. It is time to rock that pout!

And while we are talking about those out-there lipsticks, how can we forget coloured eyeliners. Make your eyes pop with shades of teal, cobalt blue or lilac. Line your eyes with them, put them in the inner corner or add it to your waterline. Coloured eyeliners look trendy every way.

After enhancing all our beauty, we have to smell nice too. Right? Keep fresh and blooming by spraying yourself with your favourite Summer scents. Both Bath & Body Works and Victoria Secret have an incredible range of dreamy fragrances.

Now get shopping people! Summer is here.
