Let’s Talk Blog Challenge: Summer Essentials

ltbc-thWelcome to week 2 of the Let’s Talk Blog Challenge, which is arranged and orchestrated by the wonderful Sarah from At The Beauty Desk. Last week as an introduction to the challenge we saw what a day in my life was (and got numerous adoption requests for Rascal and Patch), while this week we are talking about Summer Essentials.

Let’s be honest. We love summer, whatever little we get of it in this country. That means we need to make he most of it. These bits are my suggestions for to get prepared for summer.

Tan:

Everyone looks good with a tan. That sunkissed glow just seems  to make people happy. Yet we need to be careful, as we all know what the sun does to our great Irish skin. I recently got sunburn on my arms, in not very warm conditions in mid April. It’s not pleasant. So why not give yourself the perfect tan with something like Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan’s new dark shade. It gives you a gorgeous tan without risking sunburn. Without having to worry about the tan, you can then choose something with a higher SPF, like this Sun Care Oil Spray from Clarins, which has SPF30 and is water ans sweat resistant. It can also be used on hair, and leaves the skin looking radiant and smooth.

Hydrate:

Obviously water can not be under sold in summer, but I’m also going to recommend something like this facial rehydrating mist from the Benefit B-Right range. Super light and usable over makeup, it also has a delicate fragrance, and I find my skin drinks it up!

Dress:

Light, floaty dresses are lovely in summer, as heavy clothes will just lead to sweating and sticking to you. Everyone should have a couple of maxi dresses available in their wardrobe. I’m currently loving this one from Moi & Toi on Talbot St in Dublin.

Makeup:

In summer I don’t like wearing much makeup during the daytime. I want something light on my face and bright on my lips. I think I’ll be making good use of this combination of MeMeMe Flawless Tinted Moisturiser and Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipstick in Olé Flamingo.

These are what will get me through summer. What are your summer essentials. Please do let me know below!
