Guest Post: My Go-To Summer Beauty Products

Hello lovelies and welcome to another Guest Post, today we have Becca from with us today sharing her go to summer beauty products! I, for one am excited for this one. So sit back, grab a pen and paper and be prepared to get some new product inspiration. 

Before we get onto the beauty products I think it's only right we take a minute to address the absolute dream that is the current heatwave in the UK. I certainly can't recall a summer that has been as nice as this one, ever, and I am absolutely living for it. Summer clothes are my favourite - is there an easier outfit than a summer dress and sandals? I think not. When it comes to beauty, however, it's fair to say this sun has made me want to do anything but pick up a bottle of foundation and layer up makeup on my skin for an hour. So, in this post I thought I'd compile a list of all my go-to summer beauty products.

Now, as aforementioned, foundation is something that is going nowhere near my face in these summer months. Slapping on a full coverage foundation to sit and sweat in the sun is definitely not on my to-do list. Concealer, however, is my saving grace. I've been using the Collection Lasting Perfection one for years now and I still love it. It's affordable and super high coverage - what more could you want? I use this to conceal any imperfections and set it with a translucent powder, and that's about it for my base. Simple as that.

Another product I've been using for a very long time (as you can see by the state of the pan) is NYC's Sunny Bronzer. It's a really nice shade and gives a very naturally sunkissed look to the skin. I apply this to the top of my forehead and underneath my cheekbones with a big fluffy brush and just blend it out.

If summer isn't the season for going ham with the highlight then when is? I've just started using the Makeup Revolution Liquid Highlighter in Champagne and I'd definitely recommend it. I always set this with a powder highlight - the one I'm using at the moment is an Elf one in Moonlight Pearls and I can't even describe how pretty the combination of the two is. If you're looking for a new highlighter duo - check these two out, they create a gorgeous gold colour.

Eye makeup is another thing that sorta goes out of the window in this weather. The hayfever is hitting me pretty hard this year so smoky eyes and winged liner are a definite no from me. I have however been using the NYX Eyeshadow in Frisky when I want a little somethin' somethin' on the eyes. It's a gorgeous matte orange and I like to blend this all over the lid with lashings of mascara. My current go-to is a Marc Jacobs mascara and it's by far the best I've ever used and worth every penny. (It's the Velvet Noir Major Volume one for reference!)

I don't tend to wear any lip products in the summer on the daily either, other than a coat of lip balm or two. So yeah, three cheers for a makeup routine that's doable in less than 5 minutes. Hello more time to enjoy the weather.

And there we have it, my current go-to summer products. I'd love to hear what your makeup routine consists of in the summer, so do let me know in the comments!
