A beauty editor's summer must-haves


The warmer months are upon us and of course that means a complete change in beauty, fashion and lifestyle favourites.

Summer calls for no-fuss beauty products and pops of colour. The Anastasia Brow Wiz (1) is a life changer for beauty lovers as the tiny nib of the crayon allows you to draw in fine lines, mimicking eyebrow hairs. Brush through your brows with the spooly end for flawless arches. For a creamy yet opaque lip colour we love the Chanel Rouge Coco Hydrating lipstick (2). The creamy formula can easily be applied without a mirror and leaves your lips feeling plump.

To rock that summer glow without the effort of fake tan, the St. Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower (3) is a summer essential! The tanning lotion is used in the shower with a wait time of only three minutes and provides a beautiful bronzed glow.

This season we are seeing a lot of blue and aqua tones. The Clinique Eyeshadow Quad in Galaxy (4) has a combination of matte and shimmery shades with which you can create a variety of eye makeup looks. Adding a bright pop of colour to your makeup is a great way to take your look from office to drinks.

The accessory of the season has got to be a bold pair of sunglasses! These Karen Walker sunnies (5) are equal part chic, fun and on-trend. They are sure to make a statement.

A great fashion read is a must to accompany lazy summer days. Love x Style x Life by Garance Doré (6) is a must-read read for any aspiring fashionista. Love x Style x Life is part-style guide, visual diary and a peak into the world of one of fashion's most powerful influencers.

Let us know, what are your favourites this summer season? {jcomments on}
