Perfumes For Spring/Summer

L’Eau De Rose

The L’eau de rose perfume by Jeanne Arthes is definitely a new favourite of mine, I received it in my February glossybox and have been loving it since. It’s so light and girly and perfect for everyday wear.

‘Representing simple elegance, L’Eau de Rose reflects the sensual and modern woman. A refreshing and sophisticated composition for a classy and stimulating fragrance. A perfume which represents the delicate and seductive woman perfectly – a homage to romance and femininity.’

 RRP: £20.30 for 30ml

Lovestruck

I’d never used a Vera Wang perfume before I received this one for my birthday in February but I’m loving it! It’s the perfect scent for summer evenings as it is quite deep and musky without being too heavy.

‘There’s an instant attraction to the mouth-watering pink guava and mandarin which is followed by a delicate mix of tuberose and lotus blossom.Behind it all, precious woods and sheer musk combine to create a passionate elegance. Vera Wang Lovestruck represents an irresistible romance and captures the feeling of a woman who is struck by love and captivated by passion.’

These are the perfect masks to buy for a little pick me up as they only cost £1 and there are a variety of different types so there’s guaranteed to be one you’ll love! My personal favourite is the dead sea mud pack as I have oily, spot prone skin.

This mask is amazing for oily/combination skin types as it leaves the skin feeling refreshed and deeply cleansed. The tube costs around £10.50 however if that’s a little too expensive you can get a sachet which will last for two goes for £2.99.

Top 3 Lipsticks For Winter

I absolutely love experimenting with different lipsticks, especially in the winter months. Bold lips are also a great way to dress up your look without having to put any extra effort in, perfect for lazy girls!  I’m going to share with you my top three favourites for pale skin.

#1 Topshop ‘Inhibition’

This lipstick is a gorgeous dark berry colour which is perfect for Christmas parties! It goes on smoothly and leaves an incredibly pigmented matte finish which lasts for hours – even after eating! I can’t wait to try more from Topshop’s makeup line in the future.

#3 Rimmels ‘Diva Red’

This is the most moisturising of the three, I have really chapped lips at the moment but this just glides over my lips and doesn’t sink into any dry patches. I love the colour too, its the only red shade i’ve found that compliments my ghostly white skin.

Top 3 Fake Tans

I’ve been experimenting a lot over the past few months with different fake tans, some of which left me looking streaky and awful and a select few leaving me with a gorgeous natural looking glow. Today i’m going to share with you my top three tanners this summer!

I absolutely love this tanner! Read what I think about it here.

#2 Dove Summer Glow

This gradual tanner gives my skin a natural, glowing tan without the awful smell. It also goes on smoothly, does not go streaky and can be applied just like a normal moisturizer with your hands (as long as you give them a wash afterwards!)

I find that the shade ‘light to medium’ works best on my skin tone.

#3 Garnier Summer Body

This is an amazing product! It leaves my skin feeling extremely soft for days and gives a gorgeous, natural looking colour which fades evenly. It also sinks in instantly meaning you can get dressed straight after application without that horrible sticky feeling. I usually apply it around 2-3 times a week to keep it topped up and glowing!

Have you tried any of these self tanners?
