Summer Glow


As I write this, I have Will Smith’s classic ‘Summertime’ song in my head…summah, summah, summah-time! It just makes you giddy thinking of it, doesn’t it? If that’s the case, may I recommend freshening up your beauty routine with a few summer-friendly picks? Typically speaking summer makeup requires a little bit of rethinking – whether it’s going for a darker foundation or powder to match your sun-bronzed skin, switching up your signature scent to something lighter, or picking waterproof products that’ll keep you looking gorgeous even under the sweltering sun.

Victoria's Secret Dream Angels Perfumes

Dream Angels Collection – $24+ @ Victoria’s Secret
I’m all for switching up your fragrances when the summertime hits. Those heady florals are best suited for spring, and spicy oriental scents tend to pair best when the weather is a little more chilled. In the summer, you want something light and bright. Victoria’s Secret has just relaunched their Dream Angels fragrance line with new packaging and two new scents. Dream Angels Kiss channels a refreshing Mojito or Julep with its notes of crisp mint leaf and fluttery pink petals. Meanwhile Dream Angels Blush will remind you of a weekend at the lake with tones of juicy quince, white water lotus, and drenched driftwood. Looking for something a little warmer to spritz on rainy days? The Dream Angels Heavenly perfume has classic notes of musk, sandalwood, vanilla, and white peony. All of the fragrances are available in several sizes of Eau De Parfum, along with various other lotions and mists. An ace choice for a bridesmaid or birthday package.

MUFE Aqua Rouge Lips
MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Rouge – $29 @ Sephora

If you’re hooking up with a new summer fling or simply wanting to look polished and pretty at one of those summer weddings, a long-lasting lip product is absolutely essential. MAKE UP FOR EVER has launched five fresh new shades of their amazing Aqua Rouge liquid lip colours, from juicy Pomegranate Pink to exotic Bright Coral. Keep your pout looking delectable all day long with a single swipe – Aqua Rouge promises to stay on whether you’re locking lips or enjoying a sip of a champagne. Ramp up the shine factor with a layer of clear gloss for all those photo opps!

Victoria's Secret Beach Sexy Collection
Beach Sexy Collection – $12+ @ Victoria’s Secret

If you aren’t so fortunate to live in a sunny climate or if you’re trapped behind a desk for eight hours a day, sometimes you gotta fake that summery glow. This year Victoria’s Secret has launched a whole slew of products to give you that beachy feel from head to toe, starting with a Beach Wave Hair Spray that gives you a tousled texture while actually nourishing your hair from sun damage. Moving on down, perfect your ideal summer skin tone with one of the brand’s many sunless tanner products – from oils and sprays to powders and lotions, you’ll get a shimmery, sexy, even glow in no time. And hey, if you’re proud to be pail, their Broad Spectrum SPF 24 Body Lotion will nourish your skin while blocking the rays.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Cream 2013
MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Cream – $28 @ Sephora

I love the modern look of cream eyeshadows – it gives you a fresh, dewy glow that you simply can’t get from (sometimes) chalky powders. However, I don’t love the creases and slightly melty fabrications of most brands, particularly when I’m spending a day in the sunshine. Luckily MAKE UP FOR EVER has heard my pleas (or something) because their Aqua Cream shadows are insanely durable and even waterproof. This year they’ve rolled out three new pearly shades that work equally well for daytime or evening – Pearly Green Lagoon, Pearly Pastel Green, and Pearly Mauve – and all of your favourite summer looks. A swell choice for birthday girls celebrating in sweltering weather!
