Summer must-haves♡

Seeing as it's summer, and I am feeling extra summery due to the warm weather that we in Scotland never get, I thought I'd do a post on my essential products that I am loving for summer. 

The first product that I am loving is my Naturally Radiant 2-in-1 Moisturiser and serum, which claims to have kiwi and mulberry extracts in it to even out skin tone and revive radiance. I mix this with my Soltan face suncream (which I never took a picture of as it was in my bag.) I love this moisturiser and serum combo! It really makes a difference on my skin, and is so moisturising!

I don't wear as much makeup in the sun, as my skin is usually clearer around this time of year. I prime my face with any primer I can find, and then apply either one of two highlighters - High Beam by Benefit or my MUA Undress Your Skin highlighter in "Iridescent Gold". These highlighters are perfect for pale skinned girls as both of these highlights has a pinky undertone to it. 

I decided to include the Eyelure lashes that I am loving right now - these are the Texture eyelashes in no. 137. I don't wear eyelashes everyday, but when I do I love a pair of textured lashes as these kind look most natural. 

I have been using the Collection Glam Crystals eyeliners a lot - I have the silver and the purple liners and I think they are so summery!

The sunglasses in the middle are a pair of cat eye sunglasses I got from Primark for £3! They are so unlike any sunglasses I have ever seen before and it was love at first sight. 

I have been a big user of the Bumble & Bumble Don't Blow it (H)air Dryer as I try not to use a lot of heat on my hair and this cream has been a godsend to me! Since my hair is now ombre, it looks nicer (in my opinion) when it's wavy, and my hair is naturally wavy so I've cut down on heat A LOT. I use this all over my towel dried hair, and then I apply a cherry-sized amount of my Lee Stafford creme-lite for curly hair, and scrunch my hair. I then let it air dry for a while, then I put it into a loose pleat. Of course, there are some times I curl/straighten my hair in the mornings!

I use my Sexy Mother Pucker lipgloss in the shade Rose and Shine a lot more in the summer as I love the look of sunkissed skin, wavy hair and lipgloss! Also on lips, I recently picked up the Sleek Metallic Matte Me in the shade "Rusted Red". I will be doing a full review of this soon. 

For mascara, I use my L'Oreal Paris X-Fibre False Lash Superstar mascara which I included in my April favourites post, which you can read here. I love this mascara, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good lengthening mascara. 

A product that I love to use especially when it is warm is my Bobbi Brown bronzer. I picked this up in Paris last year, I use it everyday and I've not yet hit pan on it! This product is perfect, and doesn't look too orange on me!! Win win!

My final favourite product of summer is a choker. I picked this one up in Primark for £1.50 (such a bargain). My favourites are birthstone chokers (my birthstone is a ruby and I think it's so pretty!!). 

That's the products which are my must-haves for summer, leave me a comment down below and tell me what your summer must haves are!!
