I would like to say that Summer is my most loved season of all, but to be honest I love winter more. One of the main reasons for me not to like Summer is because it is just so sweaty and it makes me want to shower every other hour during the day. And because of the sweaty feeling I really kept everything so simple during this year's Summer.

For Base, I reached out for my most trusted Garnier BB Cream. It is just the best one I have come across. It does not give you a full coverage but honestly I prefer natural looking and dewy skin over matte and cakey makeup any day. So this gives me the perfect combination of looking fresh and dewy all through the day. Although I only started using this one again since last month, I had to include it because I have been using it regularly every since. I am talking about Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder. This product will always be one of my most loved beauty products only because it works so well on my skin and helps to keep the make up stay put all day.

For Blushes, this summer I went mostly for pink ones. I absolutely love the Bourjois baked blush in 34 Rose d'Or Golden Rose. It not only gives a subtle pink colour to my cheeks but it also highlights my cheekbones and who doesn't love a product that multitasks.. Secondly, I was also loving Flushed Rougissant 200 by Revlon from it's photoready range. It is a cream blush and it looks very bright in the packaging but when you use it on your cheeks, it gives you the look of naturally flushed pink cheeks which I love.

For Eyes, I have been using my only eyeshadow palette Bronzes by Chi Chi cosmetics which is an Australian brand. But for some reason I have been obsessed with palettes recently. As soon as I see a picture on Instagram with a Palette in it, the picture has to be screenshotted. I really like this palette, the shadows don't smudge and they are really neutral so you can also wear it as a single colour which is what I do mostly. Eye liner wise, I have been loving the fairly recently launched Maybelline Colossal Liner. It is perfect to achieve the perfect cat eye look because it makes it so easy.

For Lips, there are so many lipsticks that I have used this summer and most of them are either coral or orange. The ones that I used generally are Oh! Orange! from the Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Pop collection. This balm is so moisturizing and I love the fact that it leaves a shiny subtle coral-y tinge on my lips. The next ones are also from Maybelline, 910 Shocking Coral and 914 Vibrant Mandarin. They both are really pigmented and so I love to apply a bit first and then smudge it over with my ring finger to give it a more natural look. The last one that I have used is 204 Tangerine Sonate by L'oreal Paris which is one of those lipstick cum lip gloss type of product. Again, I don't like to layer it up but apply little at a time.

For Fragrance, I have been head over heels of Moschino's Pink Bouquet and Victoria's Secret Simply Breathless. I would like to include that both the scents for me are completely opposite. Pink Bouquet has a very floral smell to it while I feel like Simple Breathless is a more earthy scent.

Until next time,
