Ready, Set....SUN

It feels like forever since I last sat down and typed away on my little blog, but I'm now back and ready to type till my hearts content. I thought I'd share with you a few products that I'm using this very gorgeous July and give you some summer vibes. One thing that I love about summer is that I can switch up my routine and explore the beauty department even more than I already do. So here are a few products that are getting me through this summer.

Kiehl's have just launched one of my favourite moisturiser the ultra facial cream with SPF 30, and boy I've never been SO happy to slap on a moisturiser in all my life. I'm lazy when it comes to applying SPF so this has saved me a job, it's slightly thicker than the original moisturiser & smells different. My makeup sits on top of this cream like a dream & I'm so glad Kiehl's have finally made this moisturiser with SPF. Summer wise this is fabulous and really hydrates your skin but also protects it at the same time, I would highly recommend this one especially for this summer.

You can't start summer without gorgeously dreamy & glowing skin & Charlotte Tilbury's Wonder Glow Primer does just that. It's a stunning Light Reflecting Primer that I simply love, it instantly hydrates my skin and gives it this lit within luminosity & really awakens my casper skin. It's just an instant hydrate, wake & plump skin dream in a bottle, it makes my skin look & feel SO healthy, I honestly would recommend this product to anyone it's just beautiful and well worth the hype & money.

I'm very much about dewy glowing skin this summer and two products that I'd recommend are the Hourglass Lighting Powder in Luminous Light & of course MACs Mineralise Skin Finish In Soft & Gentle. Hourglass products are beautiful, very creamy, easy to blend and give the most beautiful glow & lift to your skin, the lighting powder in luminous light is my favourite one, my skin looks so healthy and I've noticed a huge different in how my makeup looks in photos when I use this, a lot of people who I know keep saying my skin looks really healthy & flawless, I honestly feel like it's down to this product alone. It just gives you a soft focus candlelit glow & adds a bit more dimension to my face. I'm just obsessed with it, very finely milled and my makeup looks nicer & lasts longer when I use this.

MAC Minrelized Skin Finish (MSF) in Soft & Gentle, everyone & their mum owns this it's SOOOO pretty, this stunning bronzed highlight is something that I've used religiously & always pull it out of my makeup draw this time of the year. At the moment it's just a permanent staple in my makeup bag that I won't be parting with anytime soon. 

When it comes to styling my hair in the summer it's either a messy bun, down and wavy or in a pony tail however on the days where I want squeaky clean beach wavy hair I love nothing more than using my Lush No Drought Dry Shampoo along with my Toni & Guy Sea Salt Spray. Lush's dry shampoo is one of the best on the highstreet my hair can't get enough of this stuff it's citrus scented & really absorbs the oilyness on 3rd day hair. Toni & Guy Sea Salt Spray is something I've talked about on my blog multiple times it's my favourite hair product ever, instant beachy waves for them summer days, be sure to carry your hair brush with you though sea salt means knotty hair.
