The past few days we’ve been blessed with some great weather, something I’ve been looking forward every year. I’m not the kind of person that likes tropical heat, but I’m certainly not made for the freezing cold either. This weather is perfect to me, it’s not too hot, but it’s not too cold either. I can wear some summery clothes, eat ice cream and be outside the whole time! Today I’m showing you some of my favourite products that I like to use with great weather like these days!
First of all it’s very important to protect your skin. There’s nothing more annoying than getting a sunburn and it helps to prevent your skin from ageing as well. Two products that I love to use are the Corine de Farme Dry Oil with SPF30 and the Shiseido Extra Smooth Protection cream with SPF30. I love the dry oil because it’s very easy to use. You just spray it on and massage it in your skin. It helps with moisturising the skin and giving it a pretty glow as well. This is a chemical sunscreen and the scent smells like going on holiday. For my face I use the Shiseido cream, this is a physical sunscreen. I personally prefer using physical sunscreens on my face because it tends to react on chemical sunscreens in an irritating way. It does have a bit of the white cast thing going on, but I don’t mind it to be honest. Just make sure to protect your skin with this weather!
After a whole day being in the sun or doing stuff with warm weather I like to use something lightweight in the evening. The Caudalie SOS Quenching Serum is perfect for the job! It’s super lightweight, it moisturises the skin and it sinks right in. I like my skincare light and sober when it’s hot and when it comes to wearing make-up I definitely don’t feel like wearing foundation. Tinted moisturisers are my best friend, they give me a bit of coverage, they moisturise my skin and I don’t feel it on my face. The Paula’s Choice Barely There Sheer Matte Tint is my absolute favourite of all! It’s not shiny, it stays on whole day, it contains SPF20 and I just don’t feel it on my skin.
As for make-up, I tend to use more bright shades, especially orange and turquoise. The Essie Orange, It’s Obvious is one of my favourite nail polishes at the moment, it stays on for days and I love how bright it is! As for lips I tend to use more lip gloss instead of lipsticks. I love the Bourjois 3D Effect (here in Corail Idyllic) for this because they are moisturising, they come in fun shades and they are so easy! On my eyes I love some pop of colour and the Catrice eyeshadow mono in Vanessa’s Paradise is just perfect. It has a good pigmentation going on, and I have a thing for turquoise at the moment.
So add some colour on your face, put on something fun and bright and enjoy the weather!
