♥ My Summer Essentials (Beauty, Makeup, Accessories) ♥


To me, summer is a time for bright colours, flowers and fresh scents. There's nothing nicer than enhancing a tan with pinks and corals (but be careful, we should all use suncreams no matter what because we don't want to treat our skin badly!), and it's always pleasant to use accessories to give more personality our plain vest-and-shorts outfits that we usually wear on holiday. 
I've selected a few beauty, makeup and accessories essentials that will follow me throughout the whole summer. Let's start!


~ Huile Prodigieuse Or, Nuxe: this golden version of the Prodigious Oil is my favourite body oil for summer. The shimmer it gives to the skin is wonderful, and on a tan the effect is amazing. Just like the regular Prodigious Oil, the product is not greasy at all and sinks into the skin very quickly. If you don't want to spend so much on an oil, you can find similar ones in Sephora, The Body Shop, and probably in Boots for UK readers.
~ Invigorating Fragrance, Clarins: this is another body product, a fresh scented water that I apply after having a shower on super hot days. When it's too hot, I can't put body creams on because I'd instantly feel sticky. This body water is very refreshing, smells great and will make you feel fresh and clean during hot summer days!
~ Born in Paradise, Escada: this perfume is the best perfume ever for summer. It smells quite sweet, with vanilla and coconut. I feel that it smells like holidays, beach and sun. You should really go and smell it, I'm sure most people would love it!
~ Coins necklace, H&M: I love everything that looks antique or ancient, so of course I love this style of jewellery. I bought this necklace last year, but I'm sure you can still find similar ones these days. Because it has this Roman inspiration, I feel like wearing it mostly in the summer - it reminds me of Pompeii and sunny Italy ♥.


~ Flower crowns, New Look: I love putting flowers in my hair, either on crowns or small individual pins. I wear them mostly in the spring and summer, so I've selected my two New Look flower crowns to show you. They are the same, only the colour changes. You can find flower crowns everywhere at the moment, since it is a highly fashionable accessory - Primark, Claire's, Asos, H&M, etc.
~ Nail polishes, n°385 (the blue one) and n°506 (the pink one), Kiko: I love wearing bright shades on my nails during the summer, so I've picked these two from Kiko. By the way, I didn't match them with my flower crowns on purpose! :p Kiko nail polishes are great value for money, if you have never tried them I'd recommend you to do so!


~ La Poudre Croco, Agnes B.: I don't think you'll be able to get this product (no matter where you live, I don't think it is sold at all anymore), but I show it to you more as a type of product than as a product in itself. It is a coral-gold blusher that I only wear in the summer. It gives a nice shimmer to the skin, and looks really good with a tan. I'd suggest you to try any coral or peach blusher in the summer, it makes the skin look rather healthy!
~ Baby Lips lipbalm in 'Cherry Me', Maybelline: The Baby Lips are quite famous now, because everybody talked about them when they first came out. In the summer, you might want to wear light makeup products, and tinted lipbalms are great because they can be applied easily, they are moisturising, and they give a hint of colour to your lips. 
~ Rouge Caresse in 'Dating Coral', L'Oréal: this lipstick, even though you can't really tell from the picture, is a coral colour just like the blusher. It is quite sheer and glossy, I like this finish for summer makeup looks. You could also go for matte coral shades, but I really like the look of this lipstick for a light summer makeup!
