It’s getting sunnier these days so it’s time to switch up your makeup and skincare routines! If you are looking for some new products to try, take a look at my summer beauty essentials for inspiration for your next shop! Let’s get started!
My favourite foundation atm is the Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra! It’s so lightweight, looks amazing on and has medium coverage! The Body Shop Fresh Nude Foundation is lightweight too and dries to a semi matte finish. I would probably use the BodyShop for everyday/casual looks and the Lancôme for special occasions.
I swear by these two primers! My pores become enlarged in the summer and these two work together to help minimise the appearance and control oil! BodyShop InstaBlur is GREAT for reducing pores and helping makeup stay longer and the MUFE Step 1 Mattifying Primer is great for leaving a matte finish!
For my summer highlighters it has to be Benefit Sunbeam and the Highlighting Dome from the BodyShop!
I also like this Coral Blush from Bagsy Beauty
Summer ready perfume! These slightly smell the same but they are sooo good yo! lol
My skin care routine is very simple and stays the same pretty much all year round. The only new thing I will be doing is using a different moisturiser which will be the Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser. I will also be alternating between my Vitamin C Face Spritz, which leaves a dewy finish and the Avon Makeup Setting Spray, which dries to a natural matte finish.
In the summer, I like to mix up my lip colours and finishes. I especially like to use sheer lip balms that have a hint of colour like these ones from Bare Minerals. They are sheer but leave your lips soft and moisturised, perfect for no makeup looks.
I LOVE Sleek lipsticks! Really affordable and very pigmented and lots of shades for everyone! Mystic looks amazing in the summer on WOC and Rioja Red is a great alternative to Mac’s Ruby Woo.
MAC Lipsticks are the very first high end makeup products I bought and still love! Every year it’s my tradition to get a new one for my birthday! (haven’t decided on which this year), these are a few of my fav colours for the summer!
I hope you guys found some new products you like or discovered we share some fav products! One thing I forgot to add is my face soap which is be none other than my African black soap straight from Ghana!
