1. Favourite summer... lip product.
Stila Silk Shimmer Gloss in Kitten. Gorgeous shimmery shade that is so perfect for summer. The bronze-y pink colour looks great with a tan and I love the lightweight feel to it.
2. Favourite summer ... blush.
NARS Torrid. It's a lovely coral shade with a slight shimmer. This really brightens up your look and
looks lovely with the season's on-trend coral lips.
3. Favourite summer ... nail polish.
Essie Lapis of Luxury. This is a medium dusty blue creme polish. The finish is slightly jelly-like and very shiny. I usually wear about 2-3 coats with this one. The colour reminds me of Waikiki Beach in Hawaii and looks great as a pedicure.
4. Favourite summer ... liquid face product.
Maybelline Fit Me! Foundation in 120. The formula of this foundation is perfect for summer. It is sheer enough to be comfortable in 30 degrees Celsius +, but has decent coverage. This looks good without being set with powder for a dewy finish similar to NARS Sheer Glow.
5. Favourite summer ... powder face product.
NARS Bronzing Powder in Laguna. For me, summer is not complete without a tan. I love the healthy glow bronzer leaves. This one in particular is a gorgeous medium brown shade with a slight golden shimmer that accentuates skin nicely. I love the classic NARS packaging.
6. Favourite summer ... hair product.
Nexxus Pro Mend Leave-In Treatment Creme. First split end treatment that actually works for me. This product isn't particularly 'summer-y', but having nice hair is a year-round trend. This has a really nice scent, but be mindful if you don't like it. The scent lingers for hours.
7. Favourite summer ... eye product.
Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Eyeshadow in Malted. This is a perfect neutral shade for the 'barely there' look. I love wearing this with bold eyeliner to really make the liner stand out. As with most creme shadows, the application is beautiful but doesn't last as long as powder.
8. Favourite summer ... self-tanner.
Jergen's Natural Glow. Best I have ever tried. It leaves a very natural looking tanned glow to the skin. However, definitely rub it in well to avoid streaks immediately as it stains skin easily.
9. Favourite summer ... fashion accessory.
Kate Spade sunglasses. Sunglasses are cute and practical and add a summery touch to any outfit. And they are practical of course.
10. Favourite summer ... clothing piece.
Flip flops! So convenient and great for showing off a cute pedicure!
