If you are a bit of a fan of make-up then summertime is the perfect time to try out some new looks that will have you glowing without weighing your skin down. The key to summer make-up looks is to keep it light and make sure that your skin looks glowing yet natural. During the darker months of winter it is easier to get away with those heavy contouring trends since there is lack of natural light, but harsh sunlight is not the place for thick foundation.
Just like as with your clothes, your make-up bag needs to take into account the changing seasons, so it’s time to embrace some fun and summery beauty products and update your look a bit. We are bargain hunters though, so we’ve tried to find some of the best but most economical products to help give you some inspiration today!
Putting too many products on your skin can really lead to outbreaks since we sweat more leading the pores to get blocked and then those dreaded pimples appearing. The easiest way to avoid this is to of course not wear too many facial products. Aside from a sunscreen, a dusting of some shimmering powder can be sometimes all you need to make you look absolutely like a goddess. The Make Up Academy (MUA) have been making waves for the last couple of years thanks to their innovative beauty products that have rave reviews but that also have minimal price tags too. This highlighting powder is appropriately called Undress Your Skin and is available in various shades, although our favourite has to be this Peach Diamond. Dust it lightly along your nose, chin, brow bone and cheekbones for a shimmering and delicate look that will have you looking great. You can always test out the other shades in the range too since they cost just £3 each.
Avon is one of those beauty brands that simply never let you down, so it’s no surprise that we turn to them for some of our summer beauty inspiration. This summer as part of their affordable and fun make-up range Color Trend, they boast some great products including their eye shadow stix which are a quick and easy way to add a pop of colour to your make-up whether it is during the day or evening. The creamy colour is so simply to apply and even in a rush you can polish your look. The stix are available in 4 different shades; mint temptation, blackberry soda, vanilla whirl and creamy coffee and at just £4 each, you can try them all!
For some seriously lovely summer nails we recommend this lovely line from Barry M. Their coconut infusion range of nail polishes feature gorgeous summer shades from pretty pastels to flirty pinks and bold oranges and even better, they cost just £4.99 each! Good for your nails and providing a glossy gel finish, we particularly love the shades of Surfboard and Laguna! So look after your nails and look good too with these Barry M coconut infusions.
