July Favourites


As the weather has been warming up, I've been favouring a lighter base and aiming for that healthy Summer glow best achieved by spending two weeks in Ibiza. In the absence of a holiday abroad this year (saving for a wedding is no fun), I've been going down the concealer-and-fake-tan route rather a lot, and my concealer of choice has been NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. It's coverage and finish is just so perfect, and it gives such a natural look without any caking. I use the shade Ginger, and it's a perfect match. If my tan needs a top up, I've been obsessed with my Guerlain Terracotta Terra Nerolia, a January sales buy that has finally come good. I talked about it here, and here if you want more details. 

For lips, I've been all about the brights. Thanks to Jade at Skinsweet, Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon in Peach on the Beach has been a new love in my life, and it's the perfect coral-y pink shade to offset a tan. Orange lips have been huge this Summer, and the perfect shade that should be in every girl's stash is MAC Morange. The pigmentation of this is incredible, and the creamy finish so comfortable to wear. Just go carefully if you tuck in to an ice cream - learn from my mistakes, girls. 

Nails have been bright and beautiful too, and once again I am in love with a coral shade thanks to Jade. From the Maybelline Colorshow Bleached Neons collection, Coral Heat has a glossy finish and is just the right mixture between pastel and neon to really make a tan pop. 

Have you been obsessed with brights this month too? Let me know what you've been loving!
