Spring-summer favourites in beauty.

Spring-summer favourites in beauty.

For the times, when temperature goes up, it’s important to have beauty products, which go with it. My make-up goes down to minimum, but I start to experiment with colours. Here are some accidental buys (retail therapy ūüôā ), which turned into summer staples.

Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Pink Raindrops Рfound it, when browsing TKMaxx and decided to give it a go, love the colour, but to have really nice effect on nails, you will need a good top coat. On its own, it will chip after one day of normal activities (if like me you wash your hands about 3 billion times a day because you cook and do normal life stuff. If all you do is to look nice, you might get away  without top coat :D).


Bellapierre lipstick in VaVaVoom – just the shade I wanted, lovely, cool pinkish red. Can’t wear it enough! Makes lips look juicy and doesn’t dry them, I often have problems with lipsticks – irritate the sensitive skin and make it dry – which just doesn’t look good. This one ticks all the boxes for a good one, even the smell is gorgeous.


Collection makeup primer ¬†Primed and Ready in Cool Rose gives you an instant glow, has a slight pink tinge which makes wonder to your complexion after too many sleepless nights! (binge watching a new series), can be worn under the foundation or like in my case a CC cream (CC is always for summer); or just on it’s own to give you a nice glow. It has a lovely texture and smell, you only need very little to cover all face and it’s dead cheap. All in all a winner.


Makeup Revolution Highlighter in Pink Lights- just does as it says- easily achieved strobing effect, giving a lift to your face. Used in combination with bronzer, can do all contouring you need. 16_06_07_mrsHphoto_2198

As for bronzer I use Rimmel matte version. It’s easy to apply and gives natural look.


And what are yours summer beauty staples?
