As we slowly swing out of lockdown just in time for summer, we prepare for pubs and restaurants to re-open, to see our friends and family and to have more social contact. This means we finally have an excuse to purchase some brand new beauty products!
Time to glow up!
Some of us have been giving our skin and hair a breather in the last few months due to working from home and not being able to socialise in settings other than our gardens – but we think it’s time to whip out the mascara and lipstick!
Make up must haves
We have rounded up a few of our make up must haves to purchase just in time for your next social gathering. Go on, you deserve it!
1They’re Real – Benefit Cosmetics
This mascara has the WOW factor. It gives a false lash effect whilst remaining light and natural all at the same time. Mascara is one make up item that can really change your whole face, even without any other item of make up.
2Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream SPF 30
SPF is so important, especially as we enter the prime summer months in the UK. You should wear SPF as often as possible when exposed to the sun and even when it’s cloudy! We love Kiehl’s 24 hour moisturiser which hydrates and protects! Wear under foundation or as a primer.
3Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Duo Stick – Mert & Marcus Collection
Prime and highlight your face anytime and anywhere. What we love about this product is not only is it high quality, it fits in your purse and is so easy to use! Use the blur side as a primer and the other side to highlight. It’s limited edition so you best be quick!
4Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl – Gilded Honey
What does every girl need? AN EPIC HIGHLIGHTER! That’s exactly what Laura Geller provides. Add a glow to your cheek bones day or night, you won’t be able to live without this product once you have tried it, trust us!
5Stila Little White Lies Liquid Eye Shadow – Yellow Tales
Just the right amount of shimmer that naturally glides along the eyelids when applying. Summer is all about the glow and we love Stila’s liquid eyeshadows that come in a range of shades…add a little mascara and then you are ready to go!
6Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation SPF 1O
Estee Lauder is well known for its flawless foundation – it’s natural, is extremely light and has a matte finish. Your skin looks covered and balanced but not caked.
Hide those bags and dark circles with a beautiful creamy concealer by Nars. Your ultimate best friend in the morning and an amazing primer for eyeshadow too!
8Hoola Matte Bronzer Benefit Cosmetics
Lastly, everyone needs a reliable bronzer to add a little bit of sun to their skin! Hoola is an all time favourite coming in four beautiful shades and in a pretty little box!
