Its time to wave goodbye to Spring and welcome Summer with open arms. So its out with the thick knitwear and coats and in with the light summery florals, ready for the sun! (which you don't get much of when living in the UK). As well as making changes to our wardrobe styles, we also like to change up our makeup, so we picked out 4 beauty products from our stash which we feel will get you summer ready and help you achieve a bronzed and glowy look...
Starting off with base, the Charlotte Tilbury Light wonder foundation...well the name pretty much says it all. This super light formula, blends into the skin seamlessly, without the trouble of looking cakey or dry. It hydrates the skin at the same time, so you don't have to worry about slathering on a heavy weight moisturiser underneath to keep the dry patches away. What I love about it most is the natural glow it gives to the skin, it doesn't leave you with a greasy/glittery residue on the face, but more of a glow from within. Definitely my favourite foundation at the moment.
When it comes to bronzer, we can be quite picky I have to admit as you have to get the shade right for your skin tone. Not too orange toned and not too cool toned but somewhere in between. The Sephora sun disk bronzer not only looks beautiful but the shades are perfect to create that natural bronze, without looking too obvious on the skin. It has a perfect blend of a warm and cool toned brown, with some pink and a slight shimmer running through it. This is one of those all-in-one products, that you can apply on-the-go. Unfortunately this was a limited edition bronzer but there is a similar one here.
The Sephora kiss me balms are the perfect lip products to carry around in your handbag. Not only did the extremely cute packaging draw us into purchasing this product but also the insane colour pay off- for a lip balm they are one of the best I have come across. The shade 06, which is a berry shade, is definitely my favourite, as it instantly adds a pop of colour to the lips without drying out the lips. These are perfect for the summer, when you don't want to go all out with the heavy lip products. We've mentioned a full review here.
Last but not least, I've saved the best till last, the Sleek contour kit (in light). We had this for quite a while but never got around to using it, until recently and we have fallen in love with it ever since! It comes with a contour shade which is the perfect cool toned brown to achieve those chiseled cheek bones. Also a beautiful, a rosy pink blush shade with a gold shimmer running through it, which just screams summer and finally a highlighter which is the star of this palette for me. This champagne highlighter has some seriously good pigmentation. It leaves a beautiful sheen to the skin and looks stunning when it catches the light - one of my favourite highlighters at the moment!
