August Favorites - Lazy Summer Beauty

I don't know about you, but I get awfully lazy when it comes to beauty in the summer. A hint of sun on the skin and some healthy outdoor living, and I can just about forgo all the fuss so required in greyer months. Hair is left easy and undone - a spritzing of Surf Spray through damp locks leaves my straight, fine locks wavy and tousled with minimum effort. NARS brilliant new tinted moisturizer somehow covers imperfections thoroughly while leaving skin sheer and glowy - with a good helping of SPF included. A slick of juicy, pink Beach Tint dabbed on cheek bones leaves a healthy looking flush, and several lashings of Dr Hauschka's soft and simple mascara is the perfect natural-looking definition for my sensitive eyes. I love the deep shine and Aegean teal hue of Butter London's Slapper on toes - and accept that the name is alarmingly fitting, though somewhat accusatory. Shins and shoulders on show get a golden sheen from a few drops of Huile Prodigieuse, and a dab of Philosykos solid perfume on wrists and neck leave a light, fresh cloud of tart, green fig in your wake.

  1. I love make up in summer because it looks so much better and natural! I actually used to have that Becca Beach Tint and i remember loving it.

    Right now, i am using the Tarte Smooth Operator Tinted Moisturizer and i love it... it doesn't give you a real coverage but it looks as if you had baby skin or some kind of youthful sparkling party going on your face. Though Nars Tinted Moisturizer looks very interesting too! I also love the Benefit Hoola Bronzer all year around to contour and warm up my face.

    Great make up tips! I sure will have to try the Bumble and Bumble Spray :D

    1. I'll have to try the Tarte one - sounds fantastic! I don't want much coverage, just a little extra glow:)

  2. For the summer time I use a lot of sun protecting product, the sun here is a killer.
    That nail polish is amazing.

  3. I cannot live without my mineral makeup in the summer! It is free of mica and bismuth so no itchy face... I also love that surf spray!

    1. I always try to make cheap homemade versions of the spray, but nothing works as well as the Bumble and Bumble one....
