Summer Beauty Makeup Products Estee Lauder, Bobbi Brown, Nudestix, Essie, By Terry


It is finally June! This means summer is just around the corner. And for me, not only my wardrobe changes during that time but also my go-to beauty products do. So today I am sharing with you my current fave products, all about makeup, perfume and nails.

The Makeup 

I really take a step back when it comes to wearing a lot of products in the summertime. Most of the time I do not reach for foundation at all. However, a good glowy base product is still a must for me. The By Terry Cellularose CC Serum is my holy grail. I wear it every single day. It gives my skin a healthy and fresh look while also evening out any minor imperfections. I adore it! For bronzer, I still stick to my trusted Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Bronzer. A classic. My highlighter of choice has not changed since the beginning of the year and is still the Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder in Afternoon Glow. But there is something new in my makeup bag: the Nudestix Nudies Bloom Blush in shade Cherry Blossom Babe. Honestly, their formula is to die for! I also love their shade range. I think I have to get Tiger Lily Queen next. A cream blush is just a must in the summer. 

The Perfume 

What is a summer without Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Perfume? A classic for a reason. This scent always takes me back to beach holidays, long nights and simply the best times. I am honestly the worst at describing scents but you should really give it a try in your local shop. To me, it smells like pure summer. 

The Nails

I love a good nude nail polish, but in the summertime, I like to go for a pinkier nude. There is just something about a fresh pink manicure that I associate with summer. My current fave is Essie Nails in "Sugar Daddy". Essie always has the most beautiful shade range and lasts the longest on me. 

What are your current summertime beauty must-haves?

My Everyday Bag | Saint Laurent Collège Medium.




As much as I love browsing the shops for beautiful bags, I always tend to be drawn to the same style and size of bags. 

Over the years I learned that I adore a top-handle bag, which can also be worn cross-body. It has to be able to hold my phone, cardholder, keys and a few more bits but cannot be too large. And of course, I love black bags with gold hardware. But the gold cannot be too shiny or yellow, a brassy or aged-looking gold is just the right shade for me. Well, that sounds like I am quite picky when it comes to bags, right? 

Well, I might be. But then again, if you think about spending that amount of money on a bag, you better love every single aspect. I recently sold my Gucci Dionysus Mini (which I still adore!) and thought it was time for a new everyday bag that suits my needs a bit better. 

After a lot of research, I realized that the Saint Laurent Collège Medium is just the right bag for me. A classic that will surely stand the test of time. Not only is it a cross-body / top-handle hybrid, but it also has a beautiful and comfortable chain strap that has a small leather part on the top which makes it so easy to wear. The leather I chose already has an aged or creased look to it. I always try to stay away from bags that are extremely smooth, as I know that I will end up scratching them. This will not only bother me, but also reduce the re-sell value... something I always have in mind when making my purchases.

My Current Haircare Routine.

Bumble & Bumble Haircare Products Routine - Product Flatlay

As much as I have been investing a lot of time (and money) into my skincare routine recently, I really have neglected my haircare. So I thought it is time to try some new products and tackle some of my problems. 

Before I get started to talk about the products I have been using, just a bit about my hair structure: I have quite long but thin hair which, if I don't style it at all, will simply look flat and straight. As this is not the look I want to go for, I always like to blowdry and style it at the same time. However, I do try to not use any other heated styling tools after. 

One of the haircare brands I wanted to try for ages is Bumble & Bumble. Especially their Sunday Shampoo has been on my wishlist for months. So what are the products I incorporated into my routine and how do I get on with them? 


Bumble & Bumble Haircare Products Routine - Product Flatlay


The Sunday Shampoo

The Bumble & Bumble Sunday Shampoo is a detox shampoo that deeply cleanses your hair and scalp from product build-up. I like to use this one once a week, typically on a Sunday and follow it with a good conditioner and/or hair mask. In order for your hair to grow as healthily as possible, it is important to remove all the product buildup from time to time. But bear in mind that this shampoo will also strip your hair of all the oils and natural hydration, so this really is not a daily shampoo and you should make sure to moisturize your hair after. 

The Thickening Shampoo & Conditioner 

I always need all of the volume I can get, so I opted for the Bumble & Bumble Thickening Shampoo & Conditioner. I really adore this range. It gives my hair more body than it normally has while also hydrating my hair. This is something I have not seen in any other "volume" shampoos yet. I love it. 

The Thickening Spray 

The Bumble & Bumble Thickening Spray is used on damp hair just before blow-drying it. I personally have never used any kind of styling product pre-drying. I have to say that it really does what it says. It gives my hair more volume. However, bear in mind that this is not really a hair care product, more of a styling product. So I try to not focus it too much on my ends as they can get quite dry. I use it more on my roots and use oil at the ends of my hair. 

The Thickening Dryspun Texture Spray 

The Bumble & Bumble Thickening Dryspun Texture Spray is a finishing spray I LOVE to use in the morning to give my hair some more volume which it loses in the night while I sleep on it. It is lightweight, does not feel sticky and has a nice subtle smell to it. I adore this so much and cannot imagine this leaving my routine any time soon. 


Have you tried any Bumble & Bumble products yet? If so, what are your faves?
