Summer Beauty Essentials

Summer beauty essentials

This little heatwave we've been having has meant its been far too hot for much makeup, or really any makeup actually. So I've pared things right back and have switched up my makeup in favour of a few summer beauty essentials.

Charlotte Tilbury Overnight Bronze & Glow Mask | When it's super hot I can't handle foundation but I still want to hide a few imperfections. This is a gradual tan mask which does it exactly that. It's best used overnight as the name suggests, and for a max of three nights to get your skin glowing. It gives my skin the most perfect healthy glow and it's very natural looking too.

By Terry Cellularose Brightening CC Lumi-Serum - Apricot Glow | This skincare / makeup hydrid is my favourite beauty discovery so far this year, so its no surprise it's one of my summer beauty essentials. Although it has no coverage, when used on its own this serum primer somehow hides imperfections and makes the complexion glow from within. I absolutely adore it.

L'oreal Glam Bronze Cushion De Soleil | Bronzer is something I usually steer well clear of but as my skin is a little more tanned thanks to the Charlotte Tilbury mask, a little amount of this cushion bronzer stippled around the contours of my face and cheekbones helps define my features while keeping things quite low key on the makeup front. The tiniest amount is all you need, and the cushion packaging means there's no spilling or accidentally overdoing it.

Tan-Luxe The Gradual Tan Lotion | If you read my recent Space NK haul you'll know I picked up the Tan-Luxe The Water. Being a complete self-tan novice - or actually a total beginner, I really struggled with applying it evenly. As it's a water and therefore invisible there's clearly a certain knack or degree of experience required which I don't possess! I instead resorted to the gradual tan, and as well as being very moisturising it gives a lovely healthy glow to the skin. You still need to exfoliate and take care when applying, but its a great self-tan product to start off with.

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Tell Laura | Red lipstick looks amazing on sun kissed skin and this orange based red from Charlotte Tilbury is no exception. It's also got my name on it so I had to have it! To keep this low fuss in the summer heat I tend to dab the lipstick over the lips from the bullet to create a more subtle stain and then smudge and blend it slightly around the edges with a cotton bud. That way it's not as polished looking and it won't smear anywhere thanks to the matte formula which is very comfortable to wear.
