With what seems like summer finally arriving I thought I would do a post on my top five summer essentials. When the heat comes I tend to tone down my make up, switch my perfume and make sure sunscreen is included every day.
Altruist Dermatologist Sunscreen SPF 30 – £4.00
I have been trying this out over the last week or so and I am really liking it. It is completely fragrance free and melts into the skin really easily.
You should be applying your sunscreen at least every two hours and using the equivalent to a shot glass worth of cream for your entire body. When it comes to the face use around a teaspoon worth of cream and make sure it is applied everywhere – even to your ears. Make sure when you’re using sunscreen you apply at least 20 minutes before going out in the sun to help keep you protected.
Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh – £29.50
Daisy Eau So Fresh has been one of my all time favourite perfumes since I first tried it. When the summer comes it is my daily perfume as I just absolutely love the smell, it’s light yet floral and makes you feel like summer is upon you.
I mainly buy my perfume from The Perfume Shop as I always find they have the best prices on the larger bottles, plus you can always find a good discount online for them like these new Groupon discounts.
L’Oreal Glam Nude BB Cream – £10.99
I love getting rid of my heavy foundations in the summer months and barely wear anything else other than a BB Cream during the day. The best one I have found is the L’Oreal Glam Nude BB Cream, it melts into the skin getting rid of any perfections giving you a your skin but better look.
I’m normally a full coverage kind of girl and I have to say that this leaves me feeling so confident that I don’t feel like I need the heavy foundations I wear during the winter.
Nivea Fruity Shine Cherry Lip Balm – £2.15
Nivea are a brand that I absolutely adore, I use them for everything from deodorant to skincare. Their lip balms are definitely the best and I absolutely love the cherry flavour it leaves on your lips. Not only is this lip balm really fruity but it adds a real nice touch of colour and shine to your lips.
Benefit Roller Lash Mascara (mini) – £10.50
The Benefit Roller Lash Mascara is one of my all time favourite mascaras for daytime. It gives you the perfect amount of flutter while making sure all your lashes are completely separated, it’s a really nice mascara to wear in the summer too as I find it doesn’t smudge when my eyes get watery with hay fever and it also lasts all day.
Do you change up your make up and perfume in the warmer months?
