I am not a big fan of all those “get in shape in 10 days” and “bikini ready in a week” features which are all over the Internet and in press every summer. But there are ways to make your skin look “summer ready”, as cliche as it sounds. And, since it is a beauty website, here is a step by step guide on what products and procedures I swear by.
I am a big fan of dry skin brushing, and I know that a lot of models swear by it, too. My personal favourite is definitely Elemis Skin Brush. It is not the cheapest option but really worth the money, in my opinion. I actually have two.
Coffee scrubs will also help in terms of making your skin softer and smoother. They should also help in reducing cellulite, at least I read such feedback from people who have been using them long enough.

It is June on the calendar! Can you actually believe it? I thought is would be a good idea to look back, and see what posts were the most popular in the Spring months.

I was browsing Makeup4all the other day, and stumbled across this post from 2010. The point was to choose only three products I could use for my makeup. I was actually surprised by my choices, so thought I would do the same thing six years later.
So here is what I would go for and why:
I just have to have some kind of definition for my eyes, black liquid eye liner or a brown eye pencil, or even some eye shadows. But if I could use only one product- that would be this. These days I am loving ArtDeco, but there are lots of other nice ones I like.

Regular readers know that I am a big fan of Daniel Sandler blushers, they are so unique with that one-of-a-kind liquid formula. I have written so many times about them, and here is a link to a very detailed review with the tips from Daniel himself. I also wrote about the cream formula, too.
I like that Daniel doesn’t bring out tonnes of products but when he does – they are awesome. This month he added two new shades of the liquid Watercolours and one cream version to his line, and they all are dreamy.
You can choose from Rose Glow ( a pastel pink-peach shimmer) and Golden Glow (warm bronze shimmer); the cream shade is Soft Bronze (a delicate pink-peach hybrid with a twist of a bronze). And they are honestly my favourite shades from Daniel so far, and I have quite a collection at this point.

I rarely post beauty empties, as I don’t like gathering empty bottles and I do finish a lot of them, but it is different with makeup, I barely ever finish anything, so having three empties is a big deal. Plus I really love all of them, so it was worth mentioning…
Daniel Sandler Invisible Radiance Foundation and Concealer (review)
This is the second foundation I have ever finished in my life. The first one was Max Factor’s Second Skin which was the best affordable foundation on the market, in my opinion (it is sadly discontinued). Invisible Radiance Foundation and Concealer is a great choice if you want a medium, natural looking coverage and a beautiful glowing finish.
