So seen as though it's supposed to be the middle of summer right now (however English weather clearly says different) I thought I would do a post on the summer makeup products that I am really loving right now.
Some of these products are quite new to me and some are oldies that I've rediscovered but who cares about that here is some of my summer makeup essentials!

I've recently came back from Portugal which has been the perfect time to find some of my summer essentials and give them a good trial run! So of course on my travels I stopped off in the duty free in Newcastle Airport for a good mooch and found this old fav!

Chanel Tan De Soleil
This product usually retails for around £36.00 and I picked this little gem up in duty free for £28.00 which was a great little buy for me and I used this religiously whilst I was in Portugal as it gives you that perfect subtle bronzed look.
It is technically listed as a bronzing base so you can add product on top of it if you wish but I like to just stick to this product on its own as it is just the right amount and colour for me.
It's a cream bronzer so I find it very easy to apply either with a brush or a beauty blender and find it just as easy to blend which is why it makes it such a great subtle bronzer.

The Body Shop Honey Bronze Dry Body Oil

This was definitely a winner product for me whilst being away on holiday and is also my go to product when I wear an outfit that has my shoulders or decolletage on show. It gives a perfect shimmer on the skin with a subtle highlight. I was using this product on my shoulders on top of MAC's Goldlite Strobe Cream and it was just perfect!
I love The Body Shop and have always loved using their products and can't wait to try some more of their new things that they have brought out.

Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation

This little guy, I also picked him up in duty free and got a pretty good deal as I got an extra 20% off on top of the cheaper duty free price. I have been dying to try this foundation for so long and it has definitely met up to my expectations.
So here is everything you need to know about this 'No Foundation Foundation'

  • It helps to restore skins natural radiance and colour of youth
  • Helps to minimise wrinkles and pores
  • Helps to correct undertones 
  • It contains a mineral based SPF 30πŸ‘
  • Finish: Dewy & Glowing 

I definitely have changed my style of makeup and I am going for more of a natural look which is why I wanted to try this product and I loved using it on holiday and am still using it back home!

Anastasia Beverley Hills Brow Wiz & Liquid Lipstick

I love this brand and love trying out their products and have definitely found some winners within there huge makeup range!
First up my all time brow fav is Brow Wiz, I pick up the shade Dark Brown as my hair is very dark however anything darker it's a little too dark for me as I like a softer brow on myself.
This product is very easy to use and feel like I have no hassle when it comes to filling in my brows and love that it has a small spooly on the other end of the product which is definitely an added bonus!

My second love of theirs is the Liquid Lipsticks whilst I only own a few of these as they are quite hard to get hold of in the UK, I love this shade Crush! Its so beautiful and just enough colour in it and I find it not too pink (if that makes any sense) basically it is the perfect shade of pink!
The formula is also great and not too drying which is a huge hate of mine and find it uncomfortable if I wear a drying matte lipstick. I love this product too with a gloss on top depending on what type of look I am going for.

I hope you enjoyed reading about some of my summer essentials and hopefully you might want to go and try some of these products out now. If you do or if you already have tried these products out leave a comment and let me know what you think and let me know what some of your summer essentials are!πŸ’“
