Beauty Must Haves This Summer!

With Summer approaching, and warmer weather hopefully on its way, its hard not to feel happier. Warm balmy nights, beach days and summer fruits are just some of the reasons that I prefer Summer over Winter. As a general rule, my beauty routine is much more streamlined and simple when the warmer weather hits; I want to be outside having fun! However, there are a few beauty staples I reach for each summer (besides sunscreen and a hat!) that I would like to share with you so that you too can be ready for the heat!

To get my legs ready for wearing shorts (and bikinis!) again, I like to use a good body scrub to remove all the dead skin and make my skin look smooth and fresh, and ready to be on display! I adore Natura Siberica's 10 Icy Berries Body Scrub because it is super nourishing and hydrating, smells like delicious berries, and does such a good job at exfoliating! Get 50% off this scrub (and any Natura Siberica product in the next three days with the code WELLNESSBYKELS! (affiliate code)

Forgo the sun damage and get your colour this summer with a bronzer! I love a bronzer for adding a touch of colour to my skin and giving me a bronzed, sun kissed look. I use it on my face anywhere the sun would naturally hit it, down my neck, and even on my body to add a hint of colour. For pale skin tones like mine, I recommend getting a more neutral/light shade as it will look much more natural on your skin than an orange based bronzer which will quickly have you looking more oompa loompa than goddess! I love PUR's Glow Together Jumbo Bronzer, as well as Physician's Formula Butter Bronzer!

As I am often swimming, or reapplying sunscreen a lot, applying foundation is a bit pointless and high maintenance some summery days. Instead, I just use a concealer to cover acne and minor dark circles. I love Maybelline's Fit Me concealer as it is super easy to swipe on the area and blend with your fingertips when you are in a rush!

I love highlighter any time of the year, and I take the opportunity to get some use out of some of my darker highlighters as my skin tone is generally a shade or two darker in summer. I also love to pop a darker highlighter on my collarbones, down my chest (and generally everywhere!) as it adds  a gorgeous bronzed glow effect to my skin. I love Anastasia Beverly Hills Sun Dipped Glow Kit as it contains 4 summery metallic highlighters to mix and match on any skin tone!

After a long day at the beach, my skin is generally quite dry. After I shower, I like to slather myself in a hydrating body moisturiser. At the moment I am loving Essano's Rosehip Repairing Body Lotion, which has a glorious light Jasmine and Fig scent, and is perfect for warm weather!

One of the sexiest makeup looks in my opinion is a bare, dewy, sun kissed face, with a wine/plum lip. Super sexy for dinner dates; a dark lip is perfect on skin tones and one of my fave makeup looks for summer. I love Shanghai Suzy's Miss Kitty Black Plum lipstick, but any wine/plum lippy will do the job!


I hope you found these tips helpful! Let me know if you try any of these out!
