Time to get summer ready

Now that salons have been reopened and we are back to our desks, there is a feeling of bronze in the air.

Many brands are releasing their summer collections, some of which are limited editions. The summer collections are usually glowy, bronzy and glossy and this year is no exception. I will be sharing the latest in summer collections and skincare to help your emergence into the world as the butterfly from your lockdown cocoon.

Lip Oil Shimmers bring your lips to life. Without compromising on lip care benefits, Lip Comfort Oil Shimmer for €21 is surprising nourishing and protecting lips while enhancing them with a pretty shimmer finish, it’s perfect over lipstick or alone.

There is a glass-like pigment that isn’t gloopy and so you can wear it all day for lush juicy lips.

I felt that they helped with the overall condition of my lips too.

Once this long-lasting and waterproof 48h Power Stay Brow Gel is applied, it keeps the brows in perfect shape without compromise and creates absolute dream brows.

The special applicator makes it easy to apply and distribute the product on the eyebrows. Pro tip: For a beautiful, fanned out look, comb through the brows with a small brush immediately after applying one of the three available shades.

Such a hand bag hero for day or evening, for €5.50.

Kash Beauty Sculpt Collection is here to achieve your glow featuring an array of buttery cream sculpting sticks, for €18.95, that impart a natural, glowing sheen onto the skin. Worn by themselves for a fresh finish, or over foundation for a stronger, more sculpted result, there are a myriad of ways to embrace these new beauty staples.

The Sculpt Collection is also suitable to use all over the body, imparting a sun-kissed, peachy hue or iridescent glow to the face, décolletage, arms and even legs with an array of shades available that are suitable on all skin tones. They are quite foolproof to apply and blend.

Apply the highlighting and blush product to the parts of the face and body that naturally attract the light and bronze the skin in the areas that you want to carve a deeper depth. The softest hint of illumination from the new Kash Beauty Sculpt Collection will leave you looking like you were simply blessed with enviable lit from within skin.

Boost your luminosity and achieve an effortless, radiant complexion with Huda Beauty’s trio of pocket-size face palettes, mini versions of the brand’s original highlighter palettes but with a glitzy modern twist. Each palette features four flattering shades where you can blush, lowlight and highlight your way to a natural, golden hour glow.

Effortlessly easy to use, the creamy yet lightweight texture blends out seamlessly upon application to create a subtle sheen or a defining dewy shimmer that will accentuate your key features. Each shade boasts 40-50 per cent ultra-fine pearls for a silky finish and maximum reflection, not to mention they’re infused with vitamin E that’s packed with antioxidant properties.

The formula effortlessly blends upon application in all the right places and can be worn literally everywhere, including your face, lips and lids. Ultra-wearable and buildable, your skin will look like you’ve come back from a summer getaway as the finish looks totally natural and authentic.
