Spring-summer favourites in beauty.

For the times, when temperature goes up, it’s important to have beauty products, which go with it. My make-up goes down to minimum, but I start to experiment with colours. Here are some accidental buys (retail therapy 🙂 ), which turned into summer staples.

Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Pink Raindrops – found it, when browsing TKMaxx and decided to give it a go, love the colour, but to have really nice effect on nails, you will need a good top coat. On its own, it will chip after one day of normal activities (if like me you wash your hands about 3 billion times a day because you cook and do normal life stuff. If all you do is to look nice, you might get away  without top coat :D).


Bellapierre lipstick in VaVaVoom – just the shade I wanted, lovely, cool pinkish red. Can’t wear it enough! Makes lips look juicy and doesn’t dry them, I often have problems with lipsticks – irritate the sensitive skin and make it dry – which just doesn’t look good. This one ticks all the boxes for a good one, even the smell is gorgeous.


Collection makeup primer  Primed and Ready in Cool Rose gives you an instant glow, has a slight pink tinge which makes wonder to your complexion after too many sleepless nights! (binge watching a new series), can be worn under the foundation or like in my case a CC cream (CC is always for summer); or just on it’s own to give you a nice glow. It has a lovely texture and smell, you only need very little to cover all face and it’s dead cheap. All in all a winner.


Makeup Revolution Highlighter in Pink Lights- just does as it says- easily achieved strobing effect, giving a lift to your face. Used in combination with bronzer, can do all contouring you need. 16_06_07_mrsHphoto_2198

As for bronzer I use Rimmel matte version. It’s easy to apply and gives natural look.


And what are yours summer beauty staples?
