The beauty world is an ever changing minefield, wonderful … but still a complete overpowering explosion of confusion for the average Joe (or Jane).

Each season brings an influx of new ‘must have’ products, celeb styles and catwalk trends. Here are just a few simple suggestions to ensure your face is summer ready.

It’s all about the dew

Put down the double wear foundation and industrial concealer, summer has officially landed and it’s time to embrace the tint! Let your face breath and embrace the dew, skip the heavy coverage in favour of these rocks mag hair and beauty july 2017lightweight tinted moisturisers, for every skin type. Here are my top three faves.

Glossier
Super lightweight and allows your freckles to shine through.

If you are prone to the odd inconvenient break, try their oil-free version instead.

Cream me all over

So now you have achieved the glowy lightweight base, what’s next? In the Summer months I never leave the house without a cream blush. For the ultimate luminous effect, tag-team your blush with a tinted moisturiser or BB cream. Not only will it add a healthy pop of colour to your apples, it also conveniently doubles up as lip and eye tint. 3 products in 1 – you can thank me later. Take a glance at my top three choices…

Whether you’re attending a teary summer wedding or accidentally have one too many mojitos and end up face down in a hot tub, your mascara needs to have your back… try out these belters.

Get The Look

Recently I had the pleasure of getting my hands on the gorgeous international presenter and DJ Ashley James. Her face is literally carved by the Angel Gabriel himself and her heavenly body is famous around the world for ‘none retouched’ selfies and unphotoshopped blog pics. She is the epitome of Girl Power and just happens to look fabulous whilst doing it. Her soul shines as bright as her beautiful blue eyes. Basically she is a goddess, inside and out and may just be my new woman crush.
Trust me girls, she is worth a follow. Check her out: www.ashleylouisejames.com


 

This season metallic has made a massive comeback, so stock up on shimmer and join the bold shadow bandwagon. Check out this metallic cranberry look which is super easy to recreate.
