With the new season, not only is my wardrobe changing, but also my make-up products and perfumes. In this post, I would like to share my “summer essentials” with you; more specifically the products that I use and wear during the summer months.
From the moment that I get a hint of tan, I stop using foundation and switch to using moisturizer that intensely hydrates my skin for 24 hours, while also providing SPF protection. At this moment, I use Hydra Zen from Lancôme, and I am very satisfied with it. In addition to hydration and SPF protection, this moisturizer also neutralizes the emotional and environmental stress on the skin. Also, after a night of little sleep, I still feel like my skin is very fresh and hydrated during the day.
In the place of foundation, I use face powder that gives me a natural, light coverage. I purchased MAC Give Me Sun Mineralize Skinfinish face powder for the first time, and I am very impressed. This luxurious mineral face powder gives a natural matte finish, and can be used for touch-ups throughout the day. It is very easy to apply thanks to the compact mirror. In addition to this, I also use MAC Soft & Gentle Mineralize Skinfinish highlighter. My skin glows the whole day! Since I have been so satisfied with these products, I was tempted to also buy the Amber Times Nine eye shadow. It is a beautiful eye shadow palette with shades that complement each other perfectly. It includes a range of textures, from matte to satin, and frost shades, so you can create your own unique eye look, both for daytime and evening. I definitely recommend it! As a final touch, I have been using the Lancôme Hypnôse Volume-À-Porter mascara. It makes your eyelashes an intense shade of black, but they still look nice and natural.
Besides my make-up, I also like to change my perfumes to lighter, floral, and fresh scents for the summer. At this moment, I am wearing Ô de L’orangerie by Lancôme during the day, or the tempting My Name by Trussardi. For the evening, I prefer to wear the more classic Chanel Coco Mademoiselle in the form of a silky body lotion with a fresh and creamy texture that is immediately absorbed by the skin and makes it soft and smooth. If I don’t wear this one in the evening, I choose for the feminine Manifesto by Yves Saint Laurent.
Those were my summer essentials! I am very curious which make-up products and perfumes you all use during the summer! You can let me know the comments. I wish you all a lovely day!
