5 items you might want to add to your beauty collection this summer

Going on a summer holiday? Or even if not we’re still said to have a good few hot days in England (for once) thought I’d show you a few items you might want to purchase this season

1. Nars the multiple shimmer stick

They don’t call it the multiple for no reason, depending on which shade you choose, you can bronze, blush, highlight and shade with this shimmer stick, you can use it on eyes, lips and cheeks, it’s velvety texture gives you that lit from within glow, copacabana and south beach would make lovely shades for highlighters, the multiple is also available in a matte version if you want to contour or just want a nice matte lip shade

2. It cosmetics your skin but better CC cream

This is a must for your holiday make up bag, you don’t want to be wearing foundation when it’s hot right? This cc cream provides great coverage and importantly protects against sun damage with an SPF of 50+

3. Aveda sun care protective hair veil

This water resistant UV defence mist forms an invisible screen to protect hair from sun exposure for up to 16 hours, it minimises colour fading, dryness and damage so pack this in your suitcase too

4. Mac fix +

This hydrating water mist contains vitamins and minerals and has a blend of green tea, chamomile and cucumber to gently soothe and refresh the skin, not only will it keep your skin hydrated and cool you down on humid summer days, it will help your make up to appear more natural, while lots of people mistake this product for a setting spray, it’s actually a finishing spray, fix + is also now available in lavender, coconut and rose scents and more recently gold and pink shimmer versions

5. Kiko power pro nail lacquers

Summer means brightly coloured nails and kiko offer a wide choice of shades in their power pro nail lacquer collection, not only do they go on smoothly and dry fast, they last a good few days without chipping (unless you’re gardening or something), acquamarine (pictured), peach and iris are a few good choices for summer shades
