Summer Loving

It seems that the heat has finally hit Australia (yay!) and we get to unpack (or buy..) some more summery products. 

With no further ado here are some of my current favourites:

First of all sunscreen is a must to keep that lovely skin of yours looking young and fresh (and of course to protect yourself from nasty illnesses)

I have dry to normal skin so the Neutrogena Hydrating Daily Face sunscreen lotion is a perfect mixture of sun protection and moisturiser. 
I love the texture and feel of this product – it’s not greasy and it absorbs straight away. I use this on my hands as well..


Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Daily Face Sunscreen Lotion – Hydrating


The Laura Mercier Illuminating Moisturiser gives an amazing glow and has surprisingly full coverage and long wear for a tinted moisturiser.

I find this product particularly nice when your skin looks a bit dull and/or pale. Or when you just can’t be bothered working your full on foundation routine and just want to slap on some instant beauty (and who wouldn’t want to do that?) 

Set it with powder or wear it on its own.

Laura Mercier – Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer



Nothing beats some rosy glowy cheeks to enhance your natural beauty 🙂 My latest obsession is the Smashbox Blush Rush in the colour Flush. 

I find this works exeptionally well in combination with the Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer or even just on its own over some sun screen when you are on the way to the beach 

This is also very suitable for pale skin tones – I am about NW20 right now.

Talking about glow…
Something would be up if I had no MAC product in my current favourites. MAC Soft And Gentle is a lovely peachy/bronze highlighter with golden undertones. I love wearing this on my cheekbones and in the inner corner of my eyes.
