Summer Beauty Essentials

Summer is here (I think, here in the UK it will probably be winter tomorrow, so I better not get my hope up) and I have a few beauty products which I will be using a lot of this summer. So here they are, with a little review for each one.

Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation in I'm Pure for Sure
This product is one I have been raving about for quite a while as I have used almost all of it up throughout winter and spring. I think this will be perfect for summer (once I order another) as it's a light foundation. Summer is a time for light make-up, lets not get too cakey. This foundation is also a little buildable, so if you're not too keen on light make-up (as I feel quite a lot of the time) then you can build up the coverage with this one. Yes, the product is great but can we just appreciate the packaging for a minute, how cute is it?!

Rimmel Stay Matte in Transparent 001
Lets face it, summer means sweat, and when my face gets a little shiny this is a must have. I think its one of the cheapest powders in the drugstore and I can't find anything that beats it. Just chuck it into your bag (but be careful, the packaging isn't best) and bring it around with you this summer for whenever you need a little matte-ifying.

Sleek Bronze Block in Light
I may of bought this in a moment when I could pull off a bit of a bronze on my ghostly white face but it has turned out to be rather amazing. Its just a block of three different matte shades of bronze and a shimmery blush. Whenever I feel like adding a little bit of colour to my face, this comes out of my make-up bag. I kind of think of it as a beginners bronzer. This is perfect for summer, as if you suffer from the same as me, you don't tan, only grow freckles (its a pain, and it also means there's no end to my pale little potato face). This little bronze block can make people think you're capable of tanning. And yet again, I am a big fan of its packaging. Sometimes I just use it as a portable mirror as its small and the product hardly makes the mirror dirty, unlike my eyeshadow palettes.

Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in 05
I remember raving about this in the early days of my blog and I recently retrieved it and I'veremembered how much I've missed it. It's a sort of my lips but better shade. The colour reminds me of summer flowers so it's a perfect pick for me when it comes to summer. Also, it's really affordable too which is always a plus.

I really hope you lot enjoyed this post. I actually went outside (shocker) to take the pictures, do you think it's an improvement? I also added my shades for whoever is interested. Remember to not hesitate to comment or get in contact with me, I love speaking to you guys.



  1. I would love to try the Benefit Hello Flawless foundation and the Sleek bronzing/blush block, they look really good in terms of quality. Just a bit of advice is maybe to make your writing a bit bigger because it was quite hard to read but other than that amazing post -as usual-
