MY GLOWY SPRING/SUMMER GO TO'S
The Low Down on my Summer Looks
Now that the sun is starting to show its face around here I find myself reaching for my lighter, more glowy products. My warm weather products vary a lot from my winter products when it comes to coverage and tones.
I reach for my bronzier, lighter and more glowy looks whereas the darker looks are reserved for winter. Eyeshadow disappears during the day and is usually replaced by bronzer at night.
In terms of skincare I switch it up quite a lot. During the Winter my skin is fairly sensitive and I reach for more nourishing, gentle skincare such as Shea butter and argan oil. During the warmer months I look for lighter, oily, liquid based products to keep my skin glowing and enriched.
I have a few staple products that stay in my daily routine and others I am excited to try out new. I thought I would introduce you to my most loved so far for this season.
CLARINS INSTANT LIGHT BRUSH ON PERFECTOR
I love to use this to highlight. I use this on my cheekbones, cupids bow, under my eyes and anywhere else I feel necessary. This is a lovely lightweight product which doesn’t cake my face at all.
ESTEE LAUDER PERFECTIONIST YOUTH INFUSING MAKE-UP
I fell in love with this foundation. It is lightweight, medium coverage and has the most beautiful finish. I haven’t reached for another foundation since I got it.
It does take a little powder to set, however, I expected as much from a glowy, lightweight foundation.
ESTEE LAUDER BRONZE GODDESS BRONZING POWDER.
It is safe to say that this is my one and only. I haven’t used a bronzer in years, all thanks to this product. It gives me a beautiful sun-kissed glow and is definitely multi-purpose
ESTEE LAUDER PURE COLOR ENVY SCULPTING LIPSTICK IN ENVY
Finally I have found the missing shade in my lipstick collection. A deep, beautiful, burnt orange colour. The perfect addition too a glowy spring summer look.
CLARINS PEACH ONE STEP WATER CLEANSER
This cleanser has been one of my favourites for the longest time. I find this to be the best of the water products I have used, it removes all my makeup ready for the rest of my skincare routine.
I will use this in the morning if I am travelling, or at night as a quick last minute removal of makeup after a long night out. I prefer to double cleanse most days. The One Step Water Cleanser is my first choice, before my normal Lancome cream cleanser, I then continue with my daily routine.
CLARINS TONIC BODY TREATMENT OIL
This is actually the tester size of this oil and so far I am really loving it! It is supposed to firm, tighten and improve elasticity- which so far it does pretty well. I love this because my skin just drinks it up, it doesn’t irritate and it also smells like a spa. I use this immediately after my shower.
