I like to mix things up with my skin care, hair care and makeup depending on the season. There are a few reasons for this. Firstly, the weather can affect all of these things so it is important to take this into consideration and adapt. Secondly, I tend to like different shades and tones depending on the season. For example, in Autumn and Winter I like red, gold and burgundy shades whereas in Spring and Summer I prefer pink and peach.
Below I share what products i’m lusting after in my current Spring and Summer beauty wish list.
I’ve totally given into the hype on this one after reading lots of reviews and watching endless You Tube videos. This palette looks gorgeous and perfect for Spring and Summer, particularly because I have blue eyes and these peach shades will really make them ‘pop’.
I’m also a big fan of Too Faced products anyway, their Better Than Sex mascara is a favourite of mine and I also have a couple of their other eyeshadow palettes, sadly not the chocolate palette yet but that is also one I would love to add to my collection.
Keep your fingers crossed this comes back into stock soon because I’m itching to try it!
Another Too Faced product that I’ve been wanting to try for a while now are the Melted Metal Lipsticks. I love the range of colours that are available, especially Macaron and love all the cute names they give their products. Surprisingly, I haven’t ever tried any lip products by this brand before so i’m interested to see what they are like… they look very pigmented and glossy!
It’s getting to that time of year where the weather is improving and I’m in need of a little help to get that perfect golden glow so a self tan is definitely a must for my wish list. In the past I have used a lot of products by St Tropez but I fancy trying something a little different and Fake Bake is brand I’ve tried in salons for spray tans but never used at home before.
I’m looking for a product which gives a natural tan, provides easy application, is quick drying and streak free. From reading reviews online it looks like Fake Bake would be perfect so I definitely want to give it a try!
Every time I go into Superdrug I spot these bath and shower gels and am amazed by how unique and delicious the fragrances sound. Again, this isn’t a brand I have tried before but I definitely plan to as they sound wonderful. The packaging is cute and the colours of these products really jump out at you.
I’ve tried a few different primers over the years but i’m yet to find one I like as much as Benefit Porefessional which I turn to over and over again. I’m really keen to find an alternative and I’ve found a lot of people have been positive about the Laura Mercier Primer so I would love to try it. I’m a big fan of their skin care products but I’ve never actually tried any of their makeup before so this will be a first for me.
I love using different blushes in my makeup routine and a favourite brand of mine is Bourjois. They have a really lovely range of colours, the formula’s apply beautifully to the skin and they are a must have for any makeup bag.
Recently I’ve been wearing a lot of coral inspired makeup so I’d love to try this particular shade. I think it will add a lovely pop of colour to the cheeks for a simple, fresh look during Spring and Summer.
