So here in England, we’ve actually got a bit of warm weather! I’m not a fan of hot weather but after it being chilly (apparently it’s been colder than Christmas for us lot!) for so long I’m actually enjoying a day or so of it! Knowing England though we’ll be back to normal after a few days. Anyway, most of you lovely lot have probably been soaking up the sunshine for quite some time so I wanted to do a Summer Favourites, products I think will be perfect for a day in the sunshine!
Starting off is a bit of skincare. This is the Garnier Dark Spot Corrector. This is really a moisturiser that helps give your skin a little luminosity whilst also making your skin look better. I purchased this for just £1 and I need a new one soon. It’s only a light moisturiser so it’s perfect for the warmer weather and gives you healthy looking skin. An absolute must for me, I’ve been using this for a year or 2.
I bet you’re all fed up of seeing this product aren’t you?! The BarryM Strobe Cream in Iced Bronze. I know I’ve mentioned this a lot since I got it so I won’t ramble but this is just the most beautiful highlight. It gives such a natural glow to the face (I personally think summer is definitely the wrong time to over do highlight), without you looking sweaty or shiny. I also prefer bronze toned highlights in the summer to give off the tanned/bronzed look.
This featured in my April Favourites and I’m still so in love with it. This is the Body Fantasies Pink Grapefruit Fantasy and it smell incredible! I recently won a giveaway of theirs so now own all their scents (if anyone would like a post, let me know) but this one is the best suited for summer. It’s so fresh, light and very long lasting. To buy these are around £4 which is an absolute bargain. This is my go to at the minute.
Cream eyeshadows are a must for me in summer. I know everyone thinks Maybelline Color Tattoo’s are amazing (and I of course agree) but I wanted to give people different options with their cream shadows. I’ve stuck to pencil/tube cream shadows are I personally think they’re quicker to work with. So anyway the ones I’ve chosen are the Nars Cream Shadow Duo in Camargue, a gorgeous green/gold and matte brown. One the more affordable side, w7 Pearl Eyes in Easy does it, Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow stick in Bluffing (which was in my May Favourites, It’s amazing), Rimmel Scandaleyes EyeShadow Paint in Golden Bronze (such a stunning unique shade) and finally Kiko Double Dare Eyeshadow & Eyeliner stick in 05. These are all perfect for summer, last well and don’t break the bank.
Next up seems to be a bloggers staple. The Bourjois Bronzing Powder in the shade 51 (I think). I personally don’t use this for contour and I always end up digging it out for summer. This is the perfect shade for a natural bronze glow. It’s not overly pigmented, which I personally prefer as it makes it so much easier to build it up but blends amazingly and smells of chocolate. Highly recommend this.
The last on the list is another BarryM product, their Nail Paint in Golden Sands. This is an absolute stunner of a shade! A light nude with golden fleks in, it screams summer to me. This would look incredible on any skin tone and only needs 2 coats. Stunning!
Thanks so much for reading! I want to do a Lip Favourites for Summer, would you guys want to see?
