When it comes to summer makeup, nothing can be more fitting than juicy colours and luscious scents. With that in mind, here are some of my favourite beauty products with a fruity twist, to make sure you get your five a day.
Everyone loves a smokey eye, but instead of the classic grey, mix it up using a soft peach base. This smokey eye was created using all NYX eyeshadows from my NYX palette, in which you can hand-pick colours for real uniqueness! All their eyeshadows are intensely pigmented, letting you easily blend and build up colour as much as you want. The main colour used here was Prismatic eye shadow in Golden Peach. Depth and definition was then achieved using warm browns and golds.
For the lips, I absolutely love NYX liquid suede cream lipstick in Orange County. This tangerine dream in a tube packs a punch, but if you are brave enough to wear it you certainly won’t regret it. The liquid consistency allows it glide on effortlessly, then sets for longer staying power. For truly tropical beauty, finish with Barry M Gelly High Shine nail paint in Guava. This colour goes particularly well with orange as it is on the opposite side of the colour wheel.
If you fancy something more subtle, then the new lip craze from Lancome is a must. The love child of the classic 90s juicy tubes and a cocktail shaker, the Lancome Juicy Shaker combines colour and fun all in one neat little package. My favourite is Great-fruit, but it comes in 13 different shades all of which I desperately covet. Once shaken, the nourishing oils and pigment can be applied with the cushion soft applicator for a non-sticky, natural glossy lip. Team this with sugar plum nail polish by ciate, to achieve a delicate pastel look.
Top it all off with a spritz of Jo Malone’s signature perfume Lime, Basil and Mandarin. This scent is the epitome of summer with a fresh juicy scent of limes. This classic scent was one of the first Jo Malone fragrances in my collection. It is perfect for any age and any occasion, whether it be a summer tea party or a music festival. Whilst so many perfumes can smell overly sweet, Lime, Basil and Mandarin is crisp and refreshing, and whatever the event it is sure to last longer than you do!
The combination of these delights results in a fantastically fruity style that brightens any summer day come rain or shine!
