With the arrival of summer, I like to shake up my everyday makeup routine to incorporate summer shades such as bold pinks, zesty oranges and gorgeous golden hues. Similarly, my skin care routine changes from the moisture-rich winter months to lighter, less rich products. With an abundance of new beauty launches from dreamy palettes to gorgeous lipglosses, I thought I would pick out my favourites to showcase.
As apart of the stunning new collection, these beautiful le vernis longware nail colours (available in three shades) embraces shadow and light from Lucia Pica’s (Chanel’s creative makeup and colour designer) travels. The pastel colours will look wonderful for the summer! I particular love these shades at they remind me of a golden sandy beach and the clear blue ocean waves gently kissing the shore.
Celebrating their 20th anniversary of their Orgasm Collection, NARS has released this dreamy palette which consists of six lightweight, blendable satin-cream finish shades that can be used on the eyes, cheeks and lips. This makes the palette a perfect all-rounder for the summer!
This stunning palette houses six shimmering shades to use on your eyes, cheeks and lips. You can add a subtle wash to the cheeks, eyelids and Cupid’s bow for a glowy look or perhaps go dramatic and use all shades to create a dazzling look. The palette contains four eyeshadows and two lip and cheek shades. Plus, the packaging is so dreamy!
Elemis have released this beautiful hydrating serum-in-mist which hydrates, smooths and rejuvenates the skin. It also helps refresh makeup on the go which will be perfect during the summer. I think this will be super handy to keep in your handbag to use when you are out and about. Lastly, with all Elemis products, you can guarantee this will smell divine.
Disney lovers will love this new collection from MAC. The Aladdin collection includes a range of lipsticks, lip glasses, pigments and a eyeshadow palette housing nine shades. The packaging is especially pretty which features a purple pattern on a golden background. This limited edition collection combines Disney’s Aladdin with hot summer hues – perfect for the summer and Disney fans alike!
It’s no secret that I love Elemis skin care. I’ve used their original cleaning calm which is incredible! So you can imagine my delight when I spotted the cleansing balm has had an update with one of my favourite scents: rose. Perfect for sweeping away makeup and toxins, this will be an ideal addition to your skincare routine during the summer months.
When I first spotted this on Charlotte Tilbury’s Instagram, I instantly fell in love. From the gorgeous colours to the dreamy packaging, Charlotte Tilbury really knows how to makeup! The face and eye palette houses a bronzer, blusher and highlighter with the “Glowgasm” and Charlotte’s logo embossed into the powders. I think this would make the perfect palette as it has everything you need for a summer glow!
