I hope you are all having a lovely SUNDAY! Many of you are probably celebrating today with your families and your dad’s. I know I am, we are soon going to have a good home cooked lunch.
Yesterday I uploaded a new video on my Summer Essentials. This was a collaboration with Ashley Stoyko, make sure you can visit her channel. And we decided of putting together our Summer Essentials. We decided on choosing 5 but we couldn’t stick with that and we chose more. I based my Essentials around 7 different items.
#1 – BB Creams
I love applying BB Creams in Summer. I can also create a makeup look with only my BB Cream and ignoring the foundation step. In summer putting on foundation during the day is a little bit stressful especially on our Maltese Islands unless you set it will and have a good setting spray (which I will mention in my next essential).
My favourite BB Cream is the Rimmel 9 in 1 BB Cream. I have a review all about this you can visit it right here.
#2 – Makeup Setting Sprays
We all need this in our collection especially during summer. In winter I tend to forget setting my makeup with one of these but in Summer if I forget it, I regret it!
My favourite setting sprays are – the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray, the Avon Mark Setting Spray and the Gerard Cosmetics Slay All Day Setting Spray in the Peach scent.
#3 – Crop Tops
I live in crop tops during the summer. I mostly buy them from H&M and they just make a summer outfit pop! I love wearing them with high waister shorts and sandals.
#4 – Hats
The two hats I own are from H&M and Primark. I love running around with them, doing my daily errands. A hat is your best friend in summer .. that and sunglasses and sunscreen – we cannot forget those!
#5 – Bikinis
I don’t go swimming much and I prefer going to a pool rather than the sea. The irony is Malta is known for its sunny beaches .. so yeah. But of course I still go, sometimes but I go. And I bought these 2 bikinis I showed on my video last summer from ebay and those are the ones I am using this year!
#6 – Lip Stains
I love matte lips but in Summer I prefer lip stains. They are so lightweight on the lips and leave your lips moisturised. They last all day and there’s no way you will need to reapply these. I love using the MUA Inked Lip Stain – I love their formula and they are so soft on the lips.
#7 – Summer reads
I love lounging on the beach or the pool with a book. I think I prefer reading a book rather than going for a swim and getting my hair all tangled up either with sea salt water or chlorine!
I have plenty other summer essentials but I would say that these are my basics!
What are your summer essentials?
I hope you enjoyed reading my blog post, thank you so much for doing so!
