I have been busy enjoying the glorious summer so I thought I’d give you a brief round up of my 2019 summer favourite products.
First let’s start with skin. I am a firm believer in that the best preventative measure for skin ageing is sun care. I use factor 50 protection 365 days a year and right now I am absolutely adoring Natura Bisse Diamond White Oil Free Brilliant Sun Protection SPF 50. PA+++ rated protection from the sun (the highest degree of protection from the sun’s rays that are recognised by the Japan Cosmetic Industry Association which means that it is meant to protect all day without the need of retouching), it does not feel heavy or greasy on the skin, gives skin a natural glow and has a tinted pigmentation works on all skin tones. I use it as my daily moisturiser. It is quite pricey at a whopping £92 for 30ml but a little goes a long way and it lasts me around 6 months.
Vita Liberata Body Blur Instant HD Skin Finish Latte is one of my next go to products. This instant body makeup gives skin a flawless finish and reduces the appearance of imperfections like cellulite and spider veins. Available in 4 different shades, it dries quickly and at £29.95 for 100ml it’s worth the money as a little product goes a long way.
Illamasqua Beyond powder in Epic. This baked highlighting powder adds a subtle warm hue to my complexion giving me a super natural and radiant glow. It provides long lasting finish. At £34 for 7g it you get a lot of product.
SportFX Sport Stamina Mascara has blown me away. It has 24 hour stay power, is smudge proof and waterproof. 2 coats gives my lashes a false effect that I have not been able to achieve so quickly and easily in a while. At £7.99 it tends to last me around a month and is often on offer at Sports Direct.
Tom Ford Soleil Contour Compact is a bronze, blush and highlight palette. I do fan girl the brands summer releases and despite the £80 price tag I love love love. The palette provides a subtle finish which enhances tanned skin beautifully. The powder is buttery soft, applies well and gives skin a beautiful radiance,
