Summer Beauty Tips

Yes that's a net bag you spot in this photograph and yes I caved and bought one after seeing that every blogger had one, but it makes for a very snazzy blog prop and it inspired today's blog post too. I wanted to share some of my top Summer tips when it comes to keeping your makeup sweat proof and looking refreshed. 

Putting your face mists in the fridge is a serious game changer as they are refreshing, can keep your skin looking glowy and cools you down too. The Caudalie Beauty Elixir* is my favourite as I like using it before my makeup to diminish the appearance of my pores and wake me up in the morning too. 

When using makeup in this heat I always wear a makeup setting spray both underneath and spritzed over my base too as it really hair it in. The Urban Decay All Nighter* is my current favourite and has been for many years now. For extra longevity when it comes to makeup, I like to make sure I set any cream products like blusher with a translucent powder after application. I don't want to dull the colour down nor make it look too matte, but a light dusting after you've finished all your makeup helps to keep everything in place. 

I've switched from a body lotion to a body oil recently as I find them easier to sink in and make my limbs look the way I want them to in the hot weather. Spray on oils like the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse* are perfect as they're so easy to use and the shimmer version is great for a night out. 

I actually saw this tip on Twitter a few months back and again recently too and it stuck with me. When wanting to get the most of your dry shampoo, apply it the night before as it's more effective at banishing oiliness. My favourite has to be the IGK Jet Lag Spray as it's super strong and packs a punch. 

Talking of hair I always feel like my hair is the last thing I give extra TLC to and I've been trying hard to keep up with hair masks and SPF's as your hair can get dry and damaged in the hot, humid weather too.
