I can handle warm days but July has been one hell of a hot month. As soon as I wrote the title I had that Nelly song stuck in my head, at least it’s apt. It also makes me feel super old when I realised (checked Wikipedia) that it was 12 years ago!
Rarely do I show anything beyond beauty bits in my favourites but I had to share this one..
These are my new Vans Sunglasses and the were picked up a fortnight ago on what was the wettest weekend of the entire month. However when the sun did shine it was a great relief to have these at hand. At just £7 in the sales it was a bargain that I’ve made use of multiple times. July was hot but this quirky & rather vibrant for me sunnies saved the day.
July Beauty Faves
Loreal True Match Foundation 30 ml £9.99
I had a rocky start with this one and it was pushed aside until I found a perfect pairing (here) that made application and final appearance the perfect pale summer base. It’s a light to medium coverage but I like that it allows your skin to breathe & sweat. This sounds wrong but this means that with blotting paper I can remove the glisten from my face without taking away the foundation as well.
Mac Studio Fix Plus Foundation 15g £21.50
Yes a second foundation in my favourites and we all here less is more for summer makeup but this works. I can use it as a touch up for the above mentioned or on super lazy days all over. It doesn’t get cakey but hold the coverage rather well.
Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray 30 ml £9
I long loved setting spray that has lasted me a really long time to say it’s only the travel size. I use this every time I do my makeup as it adds a little extra wear time but also softens out any powder products. It’s almost like a soft focus for your face when you use it onto of makeup. I always apply this by spraying it into a brush and applying in a patting motion.
Clinique All About Lips 12 ml £19
A recent within the last month purchase that has just boosted my love for wearing lipstick. I always try to prep my lips before lipstick but if I forget this means no one else has to know. It is a cream you put on your lips and around your lips and it just smooths the skin out. It’s not cheap but it’s a must have.
Garnier Ultimate Blends Conditioner 400 ml £3.89
As always conditioner is bought on a whim for me as and when needed. This one smells really gorgeous so I went with it and I’m glad I did. I only apply this to the length of my hair as it’s a rich conditioner. You don’t even have to leave it on long I can feel my hairs softer even as I wash it off. It might not be a forever thing but that’s the second bottle I’ve bought which is a good sign.
P.s All links are to where I’ve bought them from unless a link isn’t available.
