 JULY TOP FIVE      
This month I've been loving.. a new bronzer, Benefit's most iconic product, two stick eyeshadows, a Kim Kardashian's obsession and the perfect summer body oil!

DOVE DERMA SPA GOODNESS BODY OIL | link | 
This oil feels so luxurious and velvety on the skin. The product itself is a golden colour but disappears when the body oil is rubbed into the skin. It gives such a lovely luminous glow. It smells divine, leaves skin silky smooth and lasts for ages. It makes your skin very soft and has a subtle sheen to it. It's great for dry skin! It's a lovely product, the only downside is that the oil stays on the surface for some time and doesn't absorb quickly, leaves my skin feeling a bit greasy after applying.

CHANEL ROUGE COCO SHINE 'BOY' LIPSTICK link  | 
I've been using this a lot this month. Chanel Rouge Coco Shine ‘Boy’ is pretty much the lipstick everyone should own. It's a sheer pinky nude colour with some flecks of golden micro-glitter. It’s flattering on everyone, it's easy to wear, and it goes with any makeup look. Plus the formula is so moisturising, it feels hydrating and amazing on the lips.

KIKO PURE CLEAN SCRUB & PEEL WIPES | link | 
These are 2 in 1 wipes, the textured side exfoliates the skin and the other provides comfort and freshness. The exfoliate part is really scrubby, it gives a proper scrub (be careful if you have sensitive skin) and the other side gives a lovely fresh sensation and leaves the skin glowing and soft. The skin literally glows in an instant. They do a really good job exfoliating, it slightly removes dead skin, the skin feels soft and smooth afterwards. Kim K's favourite face wipes are good and cheap and you need to pick up asap!

BENEFIT HOOLA BRONZER  |  link  | 
I can see why this is Benefit's most iconic product. I always wanted to try this so I was so excited when Benefit released the mini travel size. It's a good all-rounder and the perfect balance of bronze, not too orange or too muddy. It's matte but gives a natural sun kissed look and it works well on all skin types.
The little box is so cute, perfect for traveling or just to have in your handbag.

NARS 'GODDESS' VELVET SHADOW STICK  |  link  | 
BY TERRY 'FROZEN QUARTZ'OMBRE BLACKSTAR    |  link  | 
I pretty much only used these two this month. I love how quick and easy are to apply. I
t takes about 10 seconds to do my eyeshadow with these stick eyeshadows. Goddess is a pinky-peach champagne colour and Frozen Quartz is an incredibly beautiful pearly pink almost like a rose gold colour, it's quite shimmery but doesn't have any large glittery particles. The sticks are exactly the kind of colours I love wearing on a day to day basis. They are so creamy, pigmented and stay in place all day.  If you like pink eyeshadows you'll love these!

Glowing Sun-Kissed Skin | Summer Bronzers

favorite summer bronzers, fair skin bronzers

FAVOURITE BRONZERS  

In the Summer I find myself using bronzer more than ever. Summer skin is all about that sun-kissed glow, bronzed look that we all love. For a beautifully natural, sun-kissed radiance, these are my current three faves.



favorite summer bronzers, fair skin bronzers1 | GIVENCHY HEALTHY GLOW POWDER | link
This bronzing powder is just beautiful and such a joy to use. I love it for summer because it looks natural, it gives a lovely warmth and glow to the skin without looking too glittery. The formula is creamy and the colour is a sheer and buildable. I've got the shade number three and is still light on my skin so it's great for fair complexion. I sweep it all over the face with a big fluffy brush for that sun kissed effect.
2 | YSL HEALTHY GLOW BALM-POWDER BRONZER link
This luxurious bronzer has a balm-powder texture and is the most natural bronzer I have ever tried. It blends beautifully and seamlessly then dries to a natural matte finish but still gives a subtle radiant glow to the face. I've got the shade #3 Epice which is the most neutral colour of the range and the safest choice,  all the colours seemed to be very warm with orange-reddy undertones.
| BENEFIT HOOLA BRONZER |  link  
This is quite new to my collection but I really like it. It's a good all-rounder and the perfect balance of bronze, not too orange or too muddy. Perfect for contouring and define your bone structure, sculpt your features and give warmth to your face. It's matte but gives a natural sun kissed look and it works well on all skin types. The little box is so cute, perfect for traveling or just to have in your handbag.  I can see now why this is Benefit's most iconic product.

Are you going away this summer?
When it comes to beauty packing, less is more for me. I always try to simplify. But without leaving any essentials behind. This is what I'm taking with me.
One Base Product 
travel makeup essentials, beauty packing
Most of the time I like to carry a natural, lightweight base like a BB/CC Cream with SPF in it. This time I'm bringing the Chanel CC Cream.
Compact powder
My trusty Chanel Les Beiges that goes always with me.
One Eyebrow product
I like to carry the Anastasia Brow Wiz. It's precise and works perfectly.
Two concealers
One for the under-eye area, Urban Decay Naked, and one for blemishes, Kiko Full Coverage concealer.
Two Eyeshadows
Nars 'Goddess' Velvet Shadow StickIt's a pinky-peach champagne colour. It's quick and easy to apply and stays in place all day.
Urban Decay 'Riff' single eyeshadow. 
One eye pencil
MAC 'Teddy' Eye Khol my go-to eyeliner, a lovely bronzy brown with a subtle metallic sheen.
One Bronzer
Givenchy Healthy Glow Powder. I love it because it looks natural, it gives a lovely warmth and glow to the skin without looking too glittery.
One Highlighter
I'm obsessed with Nars 'Orgasm' Illuminator. The perfect summer highlighter! It's a gorgeous shimmery peachy-pink highlighter, it's not too shimmery and it gives a perfect dewy, natural healthy glow. I'll be using it as a blush as well! 
One Mascara
I chose one of my favourite mascaras of all time, Benefit They're Real
One Lip product
Chanel 'Boy' lipstick is everything I need! It's easy to wear, it goes with any makeup look and is so moisturising. It's a lovely pinky nude colour with some flecks of golden micro-glitter.
