Get your summer glow

Wednesday, 2nd May, 2018 4:37pm

Summer has officially begun so it's time to adapt our makeup to the climate.

Brand new to the market is the Madison City Glam Palette (€19.95) which combines six universally flattering highlighters that have both metallic and duo chrome finishes. They are named after some of the most iconic cities in the world, along with one bronzer and one blusher.

Professional makeup artists will tell you that the most difficult look to create is one that appears to be natural but with the San Tropez highlight and the City Glam Blusher, you can create a subtle sun kissed glow. Add dimension and enhance facial features with a pop of champagne in a single sweep of the shade ‘Cannes'.

It is the face pallete of the summer because it can be used on the face and body to help collar bones pop.

It comes with a handy mirror and is flat to fit in your handbag.

Free from parabens and harsh chemicals, Conscience Clear Tan (€25) is enriched with certified organic ingredients sourced from the Swiss Alps, which nourish the skin and help give you a guaranteed clean, flawless tan. CCT liquid tan allows you to build a clean, healthy tan that fades perfectly.

It is suitable for all skin types and available in three shades, light, medium and dark and it's vegan and won’t irritate sensitive skin types.

Nothing says summer like glossy lips and Urban Decay has you covered. Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss (€21) is ultra-shiny, glides on cushiony-soft and provides long-lasting wear that’s comfortable, not tacky.

Laced with vitamin E and peppermint oil, the hydrating formula leaves lips feeling nourished, has an immediate plumping effect and comes in a yummy vanilla-mint flavour.

The shade range is stacked with sheer, sparkly and pigment-rich options to ramp up your look.

I love the colour Backtalk which is a sexy nude that is glossy and glam.

Urban Decay's Naked Skin One and Done Blur on the Run (€29.50) instantly mattifies and makes flaws seem to disappear.

This ultra-lightweight touch-up and finishing balm is water-resistant and instantly blurs imperfections, absorbs shine, and leaves skin looking radiant. Versatile enough for any skin type, this formula is like an all-in-one wonder balm.

For the best bronzing brush on the market, look to Makeup Forever and its Kabuki Bronzer brush (€31.50).

Its specific shape, extra dense with a flat tip, ensures the optimal product pick up for an extremely natural tan without a trace of powder.

Using by small circular motion, it allows you to obtain a perfect blending without leaving streaks. Its short, slender handle is designed for better control.

No trace, no powdery finish, only mistake proof colour.

My summer scent is Elie Sabb In White (€58 for 30ml) The top note reveals mandarin and a fruity bourgeon de cassis.

The heart is floral with a soft and feminine bouquet of sambac jasmin and orange blossom.

At the bottom, a veil of white musk and patchouli provides a deliciously addictive trail.

It is both feminine and sexy. A beautiful bridal scent, it would suit all ages.
