Summer Beauty Essentials

So my last summer fashion essentials post seemed to go down pretty well so here’s the second part, all the beauty bits and bobs! It’s so important in summer to maintain your skin regime, especially for me as I normally have to deal with dreaded sunburn. Ergh, nightmare.

1. Moisturizer

I don’t really know what it is about summer, maybe the sun.. but I moisturize very carefully in summer. I don’t wanna end up looking sweaty and oily but I still think it’s important.

2. Bright Lips

Personally, I’m not always a big colour wearer, so it’s nice in summer to dress your outfit up with your makeup and the best way to do this is lips. Corals, reds, pinks, anything bright.

3. After Sun

If you tan and don’t burn then you can quit reading this and skip to no.4 but unfortunately I burn, and when I burn, I really burn so aftersun tends to be my best friend throughout summertime. And it’s a nice moisturizer anyways!

4. Waterproof Mascara

Panda eyes has never been a good look and I doubt it ever will be, let’s all prevent this with some initiative. 

5. Salt Spray

Summer hair is all about texture and salt sprays always do the job for the beachy wavy look we all want. You can get them so cheaply as well, this Toni & Guy one is like £7? Bargain.

6. Bright Nail Varnish

I’m a sucker for a bright coloured nail and Models Own do me proud everytime. I’m wearing ‘Toxic Apple’ which is the green one above, non-stop at the moment.
