When it comes to summer makeup, I prefer to use cream products instead of powders, mainly because I don’t want a really heavy look but also because creams create a natural radiance which feels weightless on the skin.
The Chantecaille Radiance Gel Bronzer is my summer must-have as it blends so seamlessly with a brush or fingers and provides a long-lasting beach glow like no other; I’ve used it every day for the past few weeks and I adore it. This gel bronzer is ultra-moisturising and adds a natural luminosity to the complexion, ideal for those beachy days.
Initially, I combine a small amount of the gel with my primer to create a sheer tanned base then after applying my foundation, I blend it across my cheeks and over the highpoints of the face to create a sun-kissed glow. It’s such a lightweight product that surpasses any of my other cream bronzers; since the gel consistency is like an additional layer of skincare, it gives you that no-makeup makeup look we all love.
These innovative lip sticks are so hydrating it almost feels like I’m wearing lip balm. Each have a bright and beautiful shiny finish which I love, especially for summer! The Lip Sleeks are so comfortable to wear and provide such a fun and flirty luminosity, I’ve found myself reaching for one every day! Plus, because they’re so lightweight you don’t even need a mirror to reapply them throughout the day.
I have 3 shades, the first being Flamingo – the perfect shade of baby pink. The second is Orchid – a bright fuchsia which complements all skin tones and lastly, my personal favourite Grenadine – a balmy raspberry red.
Teamed together, these Summer essentials ensure I look radiant, luminous and beach ready!
