Our Summer Essentials

August 9th, 2017

We’ve picked out our favourite beauty products that are essential for your travel bag this summer! If you’re heading on a last minute getaway, these buys are all you need that won’t break your bank…

 

Starting with your skincare routine our Holy Grail product this summer is the Vitage® Illuminating Tanning Drops. Following your usual skin care, just add 1 or 2 drops to your moisturiser and/or body lotion for a gradual tan. Let’s face it, if even the Love Island girls had to top up their tans during their stay in Spain, how can the rest of us not?! Whether you want a natural base tan before you set off in the sun, or want to maintain your healthy bronze glow once you’re home, these tanning drops are all we’re talking about in creating and preserving a flawless, natural-looking tan.

Another handy travel bag goodie is the Susan Posnick Brush on Block Touch of Tan SPF 30, the new convenient way to shield against the sun that also provides full-coverage. Who needs extra oily looking skin from heaps of sun cream anymore? This natural mineral sun protection means no mess or greasy lotion whilst enhancing your tan at the same time, the perfect, effortless on-the-go protection for your holidays.

If you’re looking for an affordable, easy matt bronzer then look no further, our favourite for the summer is Essence Luminous Matt Bronzing Powder; coming in two shades both with a faultless balance between matt and its silky-shimmering core leaving a subtle, sun-kissed look. It’s easy to blend and contains light-reflecting pigments making a natural tan no stress at all. At only £3 it’s an absolute bargain for your travel beauty bag!

After bronzer, highlighter takes a close second as one of the most important additions to your suitcase in keeping your skin glowing. Our pick of essential highlighters to take with you this summer is the Beauty Bakerie Illuminator with the easy to travel with packaging and their shimmering iridescent glows perfect for a radiant shine, plus they’re cruelty free! Our favourite shade So Icy Frozen (below) is a warm bronze perfect for dusting over your bronzer to add a shimmer, or the So Icy Iced to dust along your cheek and brow bones.

With three shades of Pink, Gold and Peach that adapt to every complexion this is an essential palette to have for a show-stopping shine this summer!

Since sparkle is taking a leading role this summer one of our favourite eyeshadows that is essential for keeping your eyes glittered and shining is the Sugarpill Loose Eyeshadow in the shade Charmy. This ultra-fine powder combines a babydoll pinky peach with iridescent fuchsia reflects making the sweetest long-lasting eyeshadow shade.

Lips are all about sealing the deal of the perfect looks this summer and we have a selection of our favourite lip products.

Lime Crime Velvetines in Blondie is the ultimate bold, metallic lip we’re all after. This opaque pink/rose gold is perfectly shaded to match any look whilst adding that extra edge, essential for festivals but flawless for any summer style too.

If you’re not one for metallic then these Beauty Bakerie Lip Whips are all you need and more! The Lip Whips are liquid matt lipsticks that are completely smudge-free and waterproof so you won’t have to worry about topping your lippy up throughout the day wherever you are, perfect for the summer! Our favourite summer shades are Watermelon Slushie a bright perfect pink (on the right) and Hibiscus Mango Tea a bold coral red (on the left). We love these shades for brightening up any makeup look and adding that bold, striking attention to the lips.

Finally, if you aren’t after a bold lip the Essence Glossy Kiss Lip balm in Raspberry Kiss is perfect for giving a subtle shine to your lips with a hint of pink whilst being a soothing lip balm, essential after excess sun-exposure.
