Summer Favourites!!

Hello my dear readers....!!
How have you all been?? I am hoping that your September is turning out better than mine and that you are enjoying yourselves. Autumn is my favourite time of the year to be honest...it can be depressing but I kind of love it!! :) And since autumn IS here...I thought that I would do a summer round-up favourites featuring some of my favourite and/or most used products this summer.
Let's get started then...
I broke this post down to two simple categories....MAKE-UP and SKINCARE!


Nails: I really loved pastels and fluorescent colours.I mean, I know it sounds somewhat funny but ok...! 
Here I featured Essie's "A crewed interest",  China Glaze's "Flip Flop Fantasy" and Models Own "Lemon Meringue".
Cheeks: Peach is my all-time favourite cheek colour so it was natural for me to use it this season as well. But I love the natural/sand/golden colours as well. The blushes in the photo are Nars' "Madly" and MAC's "Fresh Honey".
Lips: This summer I stuck with corals and orange colours for lips. I also used a bronze gloss that my friend Lydia got me from Oriflame. It is the one at the bottom of the photo and it is called "Bronze Shore" aaaand it smells and tastes coconutty...!!
Now, the metallic blue lipstick bullet is a product I have raved and raved about and it is 17's Mirror Shine Lipstick in "Peace" and it is the 3rd summer that I have loved this product. Last but not least the orange pot at the top is the AMAZING tendertone by MAC in the colour "Purring".
Eyes: I have been keeping the eyes simple and sometimes shimmery(for special occasions).I have also been loving "nude" eyes with a thick, brown, smudged eyeliner line.
The eye-products that stood out to me the most this summer were: MAC's "Tempting" e/s, NARS' "Pro-prime Smudge proof e/s base" (dare I say it is better than the UDPP??), L'oreal Colour Infallible e/s in "Goldmine" YSL Faux Cils Mascara(some things never change), MUFE Aqua Eyes Pencil in 23L(a lovely champagne coloured pencil) and last but not least NO7's Amazing Eyes Pencil in 10 Brown.

You might have noticed that there is no base in that photo or on the list. The truth is that I didn't use a base. I did use concealer(collection 2000 Stay Perfect concealer) and I , occasionally, reached for my Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation(which I still love btw). 

Now my skincare regime has recently changed but before it did this is what I used(almost used-up actually) this summer...

Clarins Eye Gel
Avene sunscreen Factor 50+ (yep I burn like a freaking vampire...)
Sant'Angelika Idroadapt Silk moisturiser
Caudalie Beauty Elixir(I am addicted to this stuff)
Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream
Bioten Skin Moisture Cleansing wipes

I'd love to know what you used this summer!!!!!!!
Hope you like this post...!
My next post will either be a look or an "empties" post. What do you think??


p.s. : In the interest of disclosure I would like to say that the Bioten wipes were sent to me by the company but I hope you guys know that that doesn't mean anything whatsoever and I wouldn't feature them unless I didn't actually like them...just saying!! :)
