Basically, I will be covering some of the most predominant beauty staples that I’ve been indulging lately. Besides, British summer is a mix of wet and dry weather conditions and so, one needs to get well prepared for both seasonal situations. So, with so much anticipation building on, let’s head onto the actual contents right away and hence, stay tuned to see the best hits.

Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion:

If one particular skincare regime that I can’t skip is a quintessential moisturiser and Clinique does its best in this category and I’m currently using this dramatically different moisturizing lotion non-stop from which I could able to understand why it is been rated as one of their best selling products. Moreover, this lotion gives me the perfect all day hydration that I always wished for and at the same time, it gives me the healthy glow skin which is the most popular trending situation lately.

Estee Lauder Pure Color High Gloss Ultra Brilliance:

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy High Gloss Ultra Brilliance

So, what is the foremost lip product that has been used during this time of the year? Of course, it is a lip gloss and this gorgeous Estee Lauder Pure Color High Gloss Ultra Brilliance is the best lip gloss that I’ve ever worn as it not only comes along with an outstanding formula but also, it is totally non-sticky as well and in further, it also gives a mirror like sheer finish that is ideal to wear just on its own on a low-key makeup scenario or it could be used as a topping agent over the lipstick for a glossy finished look. Well, more than that these pink, berry and champagne lip glosses leaves an aromatic sweet candy smell that lingers around your lips all day long and anyways, what else could you ask for, isn’t it?

As we all know that mascara is one beauty staple that we can’t live without it and me not in exception either and this marvellous Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara is my current BFF mascara that I could completely trust on blind folded for a super dense and multiplied volume lash look. And the other most important features includes smudge free, clump free and flake free lash look. Plus, below are the two eye makeup looks (Smokey Eye and Summer Day Time Eye Look) that I have used this mascara as one among the 3 beauty products.

Estee Lauder Ingenious Palette:

I was over the moon when I received this stunning Estee Lauder Ingenious Palette as my birthday gift earlier this month and ever since, my hands were reaching out for this palette non-stop. All-in-all, I’m super happy with this palette as it has a great quality that comes along with an incredible pigmentation.

Collective Beauty Haul.

Boots Extracts, body scrub, body spray, coconut body butter, sleek matte me lipstick, accessorize prime time

This time, I’ve stepped onto 3 stores namely, Boots, Superdrug and Accessorize to make a collective beauty haul and I’ve restricted myself to try some from the high street brands alone as I’m prevailing from low-buy accountability and at the same time, I went on a shopping spree just like a little child in the candy store. Besides, being June as my birthday month, I’ve already got some special gifts from my loved ones and one such particular is Estee Lauder Ingenious Color Palette which I have already shared along with you and that’s why, this time, I made this purchase sensibly good. So, stay tuned to see more from it.

Sleek Makeup Matte Me Lip Cream:

The first shop I entered was Superdrug and I grabbed this gorgeous ultra smooth matte lip cream from Sleek Makeup which everyone is raving about and their detailed review and swatches are coming pretty soon. So, keep your eyes wide awake!

Basically, it gives a matte finish that dries off quickly and the hue looks much darker in shade after application. For a fuller looking lips, you could always go for a similar lip liner before heading on to this lip cream and in this way, it lasts long too and the intensity of pigmentation looks multi fold better as well. Lastly, with a little price of just less than £5, I think one can’t go wrong with it.

Accessorize London Prime Time:

The next shop I headed onto was Accessorize and to be honest, I’m a great fan of their amazing jewellery line and apart from that, I really love their beauty range too and this is the second product that I’m trying out from their beauty range and the one that I’ve tried before was Accessorize London Pocket Set Eye Shadow Palette and most recently, I’ve done a smokey  eye look by using just 3 products and this palette is one among them.

Back to this primer, the formula is light weight and so, it is as gentle as a second skin and also, it has an illuminating factor which gives you a soft, smooth and glowy finish to your skin and lastly, it has a nourishing content of Vitamin E which tends to give tender loving care while it stays on all day long on your skin. Moreover, having a huge sale going on at the moment in Accessorize, I took this as an opportunity to yield a ginormous bargain of 50% which made me to spend just £4.50 to have this beauty steal and how good is that?

Boots Extracts Fruity Strawberry Body Scrub:

Well, you might have heard of exfoliation, isn’t it? Yes, I do. And, this body scrub acts as a great exfoliating agent to remove away all the dead skins on your body and leaving your skin feeling soft and supple and at the same time, enlightens your skin to feel invigorated.

Plus, with an amazing content of shea butter and organic strawberry extract, I think it is a great winner as the former helps to nourish your skin whereas the latter, gives your skin the minerals and vitamins that it really needs.

The other high end gentle exfoliator that I’m loving at the moment is clarifying lotion from Clinique 3 Step Skincare.

Boots Extracts Satsuma Body Spray:

Want a zingy aromatherapy in your life? Then, this is the one for you as it gives a burst of mild citrus fragrance that makes your body to feel instantly revitalised.

This body spray has an amazing content of citrus reticulata extract that could be sprayed on your body whenever it is needed.

The other fragranced body mist that I’m religiously using at the moment is Victoria Secret’s Coconut Passion.

Boots Extracts Coconut Body Butter:

This luxurious body butter brings back those tropical getaway memories and this mild scented body butter that is nourished with coconut oil is a quintessential way to welcome this warm summer.

The other incredible body butter that I always worship on is Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter.

So, have you ever tried any of these beauties before? If so, share your thoughts and as always, I would love to read them.

Top 5 Summer Must-Have essentials.

 

Amie, No.7, Ted Baker London, Richard Ward, River Island

In my last post, I’ve shown you a tutorial about how to master a smokey eye look with just 3 products? And, if you have missed it, then ensure yourself not to miss that great post as it explains everything that you need to know about smokey eye. We all know that tomorrow is the officially opening of the grand seasonal summer and a thing to remember always is to get into some beauty basics and with that as an inspiration, herewith, I’ve picked up my top 5 summer must have essentials that includes from skincare to makeup and from haircare to perfume that are all a mixed combo of high end and drugstore products and so, stay tuned to know more about it.

Amie Naturally Kind Morning Clear Purifying Facial Wash:

Amie Naturally Kind Morning Clear Purifying Facial Wash

For skincare regime, I always stick onto natural products as much as possible as they get  into our skin deeply twice daily and so, skin appropriate products are a must-have essentials for this season and one similar find recently is Amie naturally kind morning clear facial wash and the effective formula of this facial wash works so gentle on my skin as it is loaded up with high quality, naturally derived plant extracts which brings in a perfect harmony by leaving my skin clear, soft and radiant. Some of the great factors includes paraben free, sulphate free and mineral oil free. Lastly, it clears, purifies and moisturises skin all under one versatile finish and anyways, how great is that?

Richard Ward – The Chelsea Collection – Age Proofing Hydrating Treatment:

There is no substitute for beautiful hair – Richard, Award-winning celebrity hairdresser

From skincare, let’s move onto haircare product. As Richard says, of course, there is no other better way to start this summer with a healthy looking shiny hair which is always a plus when it comes to the beauty community and me not in exception either and this baby pink, luxury salon formula that is filled with gorgeous aroma is the one that is quintessential to pamper yourself before heading onto any oncoming summer parties. Besides, you could use this product in two ways: one is for conditioning where you allow it to stand on your hair for 15 minutes and followed with a rinse and the other one is for intense treatment where it is applied onto your hair for 30 minutes and later with a rinse. Most predominantly, by holding an amazing content of the current trending Argan oil, I certainly believe that one can’t go wrong with it.

No.7 Creme Touch Face Powder:

Now, it’s time for makeup and with sultry sunny days to come up pretty soon, a compact pressed face powder is a great versatile staple and this coppery packaged compact powder acts as an ideal base to your face where it protects your foundation to say in place and also, sets the whole makeup perfectly without feeling cakey at all. Besides, this time, I’ve picked the shade fair bloom.

Next Paradise Island Eau De Parfum:

River Island Eau De Parfum

Rather than heavier perfumes, nowadays, I’m sticking onto lighter perfumes and fragrance mists and one such particular is the amazing Next paradise island eau de parfum where its aromatic scent drives you straight away to the tropical islands and the stunning packaging answers everything that I’m talking about.

Ted Baker London Body Lotion:

Are you looking for a luxury moisturising body lotion? Then, here it is as the moisturising content of the formula is sweetened with cherry picked florals of violet, vanilla, patchouli and amber. Well, what else could you ask for, isn’t it? Moreover, the diamond studded bottle with duck blue coloured casing that is perfectly finished with a coppery top pump explains all the tiny details of luxe at its elegance. Score!

So, what are your favourite summer essentials that you are up to? And, you could always share the same with me and as always, I would love to read them along.

Have a great start of the week. Happy Monday!

  1. Create a base: Since there is no visibility of eye shadow primer here, I’m just sticking on to the lighter shade of grey as an eye shadow base because it will give some depth to the whole makeup look. And, using my finger, I’ve applied the light grey shade (top middle of the palette) onto the eyelids and crease area.
  2. Crease area: Using the blending brush, I’ve applied the dark grey shade (bottom middle of the palette) along the crease area and I did blend and buff movement to create a perfect blend to the crease area.
  3. Depth to lower crease area: Using the blending brush, I’ve applied the shimmery dark blue (top right of the palette) onto the lower crease area to give some intense depth and shimmer and yet again, I did the same blend and buff movement to make the shade to cover up evenly.
  4. Eyelids: Using  the eye shadow brush, I’ve dabbed the shimmery grey shade (bottom left of the palette) all along the eyelids.
  5. Outer corner of the eye: Using the blending brush, I’ve applied a dab of black shade (bottom right of the palette) onto the outer corner of the eye and I’ve blended it so well to give a defined sharp look.
  6. Inner corner of the eye: Using a small brush, I’ve applied a bit of sparkly silver shade (top left of the palette) onto the inner corner of the eye.
  7. Lower lash line: Using a small brush, I’ve applied a hint of grey shade below the lower lash line area.
  8. Eyeliner: I’ve applied a quintessential winged eyeliner using the above eyeliner selection.
  9. Mascara: First of all, using eye lash curler, I’ve curled my lashes really well before heading onto the next step. Using the above mascara, I’ve applied plenty of coats of mascara onto the upper and lower lashes vigourously.
  10. Final touch: Using a cotton bud, I’ve tidied up all the bits and bobs in and around the eye. Now, the completed smokey eye makeup look is ready to show off.
