Makeup Products That You Need For Summer: Reviews and Swatches

Hi girls!

Summer is here and I hope those of you who love summer enjoy it. I am not really a fan of summer because most of all I hate the heat!

Here are some products* that I’ve tried and that I think work great for summer.

Be sure that your makeup is waterproof so you don’t end up looking like this 😉

Add a sun-kissed glow to your face with Too Faced bronzers.

My favourite cream blush, true coral shade by Illamasqua, works perfect in summer heat.

Pantone Colour of 2018: Ultraviolet

When you have been around for a while (it will be 9 years next month), you can remember posting about the Pantone Colour of the Year a few times: Greenery, Marsala, Radiant Orchid, Emerald and Tangerine Tango.

Here is how it is officially described: “a dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future“.

And, as usual, butter LONDON did a great job capturing the colour in form of makeup, so if you want to introduce it to your [beauty] routine, check out the brand on Amazonand Amazon UK.

Dark Lips. Get The Look: Chanel Autumn 2020 and Alternative Products

Long time readers will know that I am a huge fan of a dark lip, so I am obviously loving the beauty look from the latest Chanel show. Lucia Pica kept the face and eye makeup minimal to make it look fresh and modern.

On the lips she used the new products which will be a part of the Autumn collection (out in July), and, no doubt, will be a big hit: ROUGE ALLURE VELVET EXTRÊME in N°130 Rouge Obscur  and ROUGE COCO GLOSS in N°816 Laque Noire.

Other products used for the look were:
