Exams are all finally coming to a close, and summer is getting closer by the minute! So today I am sharing with you guys, some of my summer essentials!
So obviously for summer, you need to be more concious about what your makeup is doing for your skin. I use a moisturiser with an SPF of 15, and if you wear foundation, I’d recommend one like Rimmel’s Wake Me Up, which also has an SPF of 15.
The next essential is obviously deodorant! I opt for a 48 hour one, because during the summer you don’t want to have to constantly apply it, but you also don’t want to go without it, so I would recommend keeping an eye out for specifically 24-48 hour ones especially if you’ll be camping, and going to festivals.
Another essential that is geared toward low-maintenance and festival go-ers is John Freida’s Frizz-Ease 3 day straight. Just spray this onto damp hair, before you dry and straighten it, and your hair will remain frizz-free and straight for up to 3 days!
Sunglasses are an obvious must-have for summer time, without a question. You can even choose some reflective ones that not only shelter your eyes, but look awesome in pictures!
My next essential is a travel-friendly bottle. You’ve got to keep hydrated if you’re sitting out in the sun, or just generally travelling around, so I purchased a Sistema bottle that you can completely close, so you’re not at risk of any leaks in your bag.
And a cute little backpack, so you can have everything with you on the go! Finally, for me, nothing is easier and more suited fashion-wise, for summer, than a playsuit or a dress!
Also, some not-quite-essentials, but I think summer is the perfect time for light and bright colours on your nails, so I’m loving Maybelline’s Colour Show 60 second nail varnish in absolute white. This brand dries so quickly, they’re perfect for summer when you don’t want to spend ages on your nails but still want them to look cute, just paint and go! And also a cute headband, it’s perfect for if you don’t want to do any intricate styles with your hair, so if you’re a festival go-er nothing is better than headbands, dry shampoo and braids!
Those are my summer essentials, I hoped you guys enjoyed! Let me know in the comments below what your summer essentials are.
