Summer is officially here! The sunshine is blazing hot and I'm ready to switch up my beauty for this season. I've been dabbling in cream formulas, glowy makeup and a fresh spritz of floral perfume for a while now, but today I wanted to share with you my favourite new-in Summer beauty picks.
If there's one scent that reminds me of sunny days and beaches, it's the highly coveted Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess which gets released every Summer. This delicious fragrance with notes of coconut milk, vanilla and mandarin lingers on the skin for hours whilst not being too overpowering, but scenting the body just the right amount. I can't believe I've never owned this perfume before, so I'm very glad I spotted it on Fragrance Direct's new in page.
As someone who has dehydrated skin, I suffer with dry patches and an irritated complexion all year around, so I rely on lots of lotions and potions to keep my skin feeling softer and looking smoother. I'm excited to give the bareMinerals Prime Time Original Foundation Primer a go because I've heard lots of good things about it over the years. From the first few uses it gives off a silky finish without feeling drying or pilling on the skin, instead it's lightweight, minimises texture by being slightly hydrating and also makes my foundation go on super smooth.
Another repurchase of mine is the Sleek Rose Gold Blusher which was a cult high street classic many years ago, but is one that has been said to be a dupe for Nars Orgasm. It's got a neutral pink hue with gold flecks running through it that compliments my complexion during the Summertime as well as acting as a slight highlighter if I don't want to go full on with my makeup.
To round off my everyday Summer makeup, I like to opt for a nude or pink lip as I find this can be reapplied easily and go from day to night too. The Nars Pigalle Lipstick is absolutely gorgeous and if you're an Autumn baby at heart like myself, then I think you'll love this even more as it has slight brown undertones to it that can easily be transitioned from this season to the next.
