More Summery Picks

Nuxe oil review
After the intense heatwave and Summer Solstice this week, there's no doubt that Summer has arrived here in the UK. Only now is the weather (finally!) ebbing away to slightly cooler days as British Summertime settles in.
As such, I've replaced my everyday products with fresh, summery picks - peach-pink blushers, long lasting lip creams and skin nourishing, pampering oils and lotions. Here's a few more summery picks that I've pulled out for the warmer days!

The first product is one that I've added to my daily routine. The Nuxe Sun Delicious Cream SPF30* has been an essential for me in this hot weather! Not only does this smell beautiful - so lovely, but a little goes a long way, just a few dots covers my whole face and neck. It also doesn't feel sticky on the skin, or break me out, it leaves my skin soft, smooth and protected! 
I've also been applying the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse* to my hair, my legs - all over really! It smells gorgeous and with Argan oil, Tsubaki oil and vitamin e, it's a divine, luxurious mix for silky soft skin and hair. 

For a dewy glow I've been reaching for the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blusher in Diffused Heat. This blends flawlessly and imparts a soft radiance from the swirls of ambient lighting powder and pink-peach pigments combined. I've been alternating this with the Nars Dual-Intensity Blush In Adoration*, a gorgeous cheek duo with a frosted, sparkling pale pink and a perky warm satin pink.

On my lips, I've been in love with the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Antwerp. A budge-proof, pigmented peach-pink hue, it's so flattering on. The lasting power of the soft matte lip creams never fails to surprise me - they're just what I need in this heat - especially when I'm drinking more water! As long as I pop on a lip balm underneath they don't dry my lips, are a dream to apply and comfortable to wear!

For eyes, I've been wearing a wash of golden champagne shimmer, starting with the Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerise in Jean as a base. You only need the smallest amount of this vitamin e enriched, creamy eyeshadow, It blends effortlessly, like a dream and brightens up the eyes with it's light reflecting pigments. On top, I've been adding Honeylust by MAC, a gorgeous peachy bronze hue with a hint of sparkle! 
Or for a quick, no fuss wash of colour, the Nars Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Goddess is dreamy, a subtle shimmering peach pink with light gold champagne - it's such a pretty pick.

I adore Essie's Summer collection, a sweet mix of shades inspired by Parisian pastries they're ideal for summertime! A stand-out fave is Sil Vous Play*, a divine lavender foil, it's a beautiful, unique pick. 

Lastly, after rejoicing at Lush Sleepy becoming part of the permanent range, I've been slathering on this dreamy pick before bed - the soothing Lavender infusion really helps me though the hot summer nights. With oats, coco butter, jojoba and almond oils, it's a heavenly, nourishing treat for the skin.

What are your summer beauty picks?
