Top Ten Summer Beauty Favourites

Top Ten Summer Beauty Favourites

Seeing as the Autumn weather has now approached and summer is leaving us behind i thought I'd share with my top ten favourite beauty products that I've loved using throughout the summer. I was originally just going to do a general summer favourites but i choose that many products that you would sat for hours reading it so I've narrowed it down to just ten, it wasn't easy but these have been my stand out products to use.



Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation in Ivory*
I'm sure this is no surprise, I've used it in every single face of the day post I've done these past few months and its been my choice of foundation pretty much everyday since i got it, i just adore this foundation. It has a light coverage which is enough for me, but it is buildable, it feels really light on the skin and it really does give a really nice natural finish to the skin. The only negative thing about this foundation is that it doesn't have pump but other than that i could rave about this all day.

Collection Fix Me Up Setting Spray
I don't really like to use a setting spray but when we had the warmer weather and i was in work, i needed something that would keep my make up in place and this genuinely does work. I didn't think it would but on the days i used it, i noticed that my make up did not budge, even after 8 hour shifts. I don't enjoy the scent of this but it doesn't linger after you've sprayed so i can live with that.

Bourjois Colourburst Lip Crayon in Orange Punch
Orange is a shade that i normally steer clear of and i took a risk with this product but it definitely paid off. This was a great way to add a pop of colour to a make up look and it was so moisturising on the lips and the lasting power was really good too. This is quite a bold lip colour buts its not insanely bright, its very wearable. I really like these lip crayon and i am definitely going to invest in the other shades as i think they are brilliant.

Benefit Hello Flawless Custom Cover Up Powder in Gee, I'm Swell Ivory*
This is a great powder to set foundation with as its not to heavy or cakey but it gets rid of any shine that you may have. I also really like using this on really good skin days when i don't wear foundation (kinda rare lately) but it gives a little coverage so i felt on some days i could get away with wearing this.

Physicians Formula Happy Booster in Natural
Unfortunately this isn't available in the UK - usually when i post about it, i always get left comments off people asking where they can buy it - i don't know, i received it in a beauty swap i didn't with a blogger from the US. This was one of the only product i asked for and I'm so glad i did i love it, its a blush and bronzer combined - the bronzer adds warmth to the face whilst the blush enhances a radiant glow - This gives my skin such a gorgeous natural glow and it was just the perfect product for summer. The blush claims to make you happy, its infused with some natural ingredients that mimic the effect of endorphins that makes you happy - i don't know if this is true but the way it looks on my skin makes me happy!

Revlon Colour Burst Lip Butter in Candy Apple
I mention this so many times on my blog you must be bored of hearing about it, this is one of those products that i wear all year round. It's a gorgeous sheer red shade and because it's a lip butter and its a sheer application it makes it such a wearable red. It's an easier shade to wear daily because although its still a red lip its not as bold as a typical red lipstick. The lip butters have a really nice formula so their pleasant to wear and really moisturising on the lips too!

Mac Paint Pot in Painterly
I love to use this as an eyeshadow base as it works just like a primer, prolonging my eyeshadows and also making them a lot more vibrant but throughout the summer when i didn't fancy wearing any eyeshadow I'd sweep this all over the lid and wear it alone with liquid liner. It doesn't really add any colour to the lids but it evens out the skintone. Its really easy to blend and it stays in place too, i really like these Mac paint pots and i really want to try out more shades as I'm super impressed by this one.

Bourjois Delice De Poudre Bronzing Powder
This bronzer just makes me so happy. I love the idea of contouring my face and although i always give it a try I've never reached the results I've been happy with until i tried this. This is so natural on the skin, it doesn't look muddy or really obvious but i can still visibly see were I've contoured. I can understand why this bronzer is well loved amongst bloggers and vloggers as it is now a staple item in my collection. I love the smell of it too, i wouldn't say its chocolate it smells more like holiday/coconut kind of smell and its lovely.

Shaka Lipgloss in Angel Rose
Lipgloss isn't an item i reach for often as I'm quite fussy with lipgloss but this one just ticks all the right boxes  - it's creamy, its not sticky, its comfortable to wear on the lips and its a gorgeous colour too. This colour in particular is a gorgeous pink shade and it was a lovely shade to wear in the summer because its not too in your face but adds a nice hint of colour to the lips.

Essie Nail Polish in Bikini So Teeny
My favourite couldn't be complete without adding a nail polish into the mix; this one completely surprised me because the first Essie nail polish i used i really disliked the formulation, it was streaky and i just wasn't impressed but this was completely different. Its a pale blue shade that leans into the lavendar style, blue is normally a shade i steer clear off on my nails because i feel it looks kind of alien on me but this one doesn't and I've really enjoying wearing it over the summer. You know its a good un' because its one that i returned to multiple times in a short period of time and usually that doesn't happen, this becomes opaque after two coats and it does last for a few days before chipping, more depending on your choice of top coat.

What products did you reach for the most this summer?
