This post is a bit of a random one. I won't show you a certain look or will talk about a certain product. I just thought I will show you which products I reach for in the summer months. You can also read about my Summer Lipsticks Edit (here) or my Summer Skincare Edit (here).  I don't change my makeup too much throughout the seasons, but there are certain products which I use way more in different seasons. So let's get started with my little rundown of my summer beauty must-haves.


Let's start with a bit of an odd product. When we think about summer we don't necessarily think about heavy foundations, at least I don't. That's why I normally won't reach for foundations at all. I just love using a really good concealer instead. My concealer I love throughout the whole year is the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-place concealer. Such a fab product, very light, very natural but enough coverage. If my skin is acting or I need to look a bit more flawless I use the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation. I know, normally not what you would expect to be a good summer foundation. But as I said, I only use it when I really need to. This foundation is heavy, but it lasts so long which I need on those hot summer days.


Another product which I can't live without is waterproof mascara. I change mine up all the time, but the one I am using and loving at the moment is the Max Factor False Lash Effect Waterproof. But I always think that mascara is such a personal thing, a lot of mascaras people love don't work for me at all. So just try it out for yourself.


My skin tends to get quite oily in the heat, so I like to use a good setting powder around my T-Zone. Here I choose the Vichy Dermablend powder. It is transparent without giving you that weird white powdery look. But I have to say that I only use a little bit. I think that is key to using powders in the summer without looking cakey.



Bronzer is something I also use all year around, but I definitely use it the most in the summer. I am quite pale and my skin doesn't want to tan easily. Also, I try not to be in the sun too much to keep my skin protected. But I still like that summer glow. For that, I love my trusty old Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Bronzer. If you ask me, it's the best investment you can make. It blends perfectly, it comes in a variety of shades and lasts ages. The dream!


When it comes to lipsticks there is not a certain one I use every year. But my nude lipsticks tend to be a bit more on the pinky side when it gets warmer. Two of my current faves are the Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy in the shade "Desirable" and on the matte side of things the Armani Rouge D'Armani in 103 Nuda. 


Last but not least my current favourite perfume is Chloe Love. Such a gorgeous powdery scent. Definitely, give it a try if you get the chance!
