Along with summer follows numerous events such as BBQ’s, Weddings, Festivals and Beach trips which can make you want to ditch your usual make-up routine and try out something new. We’ve compiled 5 simple yet stunning beauty looks to get you covered for all your exciting summer plans!
The Golden Goddess
As everyone seems to have gone “highlighter mad” this year, there is no better time to perfect your shine than this summer. Why not add a gentle dusting of Charlotte Tilbury’s Bar of Gold highlighter to the top of your cheek bones, tip of your nose and cupids brow for that gentle summery sheen! Secondly YSL Gloss Volupte in Gold is an ideal lip gloss to swipe over your nude lip.
The “I’m wearing no makeup” Makeup
The “au naturel” look is definitely a growing trend this summer yet no-one actually wants to brave the bare face. Instead we suggest going for a natural lip and lengthening mascara. Our favourite neutral lipstick has to be ‘Bitch Perfect’ by Charlotte Tilbury and why not try Clinique’s ‘Naturally Glossy’ mascara to subtly lengthen those lashes.
The Red Lip
Nothing shouts glamour more than a red lip. Even if you’ve spent a rushed 30 minutes getting ready, add a red lip and no-one will ever know! We suggest NARS Semi-matte lipstick in Jungle Red, perfect for those special summer occasions.
The Brown Smoky-Eye
Ditch the black smoky-eye this summer and opt for brown hues instead. It’s completely up to you how fierce you want your eye-makeup to look, but we absolutely love this soft and blended brown smoky-eye. If you’re after something similar we suggest Stila’s Soul Eyeshadow palette which includes a gorgeous range of colors to work with!

Bright and bold makeup has definitely made a statement on the catwalks this summer so there is no better time to add a pop of blue, pink or orange to your make-up. We love Urban Decay’s ELECTRIC eye shadow palette; it allows you to be as colorful as your heart desires!

I spend most of my time browsing online shopping websites or over-indulging in high-calorie foods (and guilty of instagramming pics of them afterwards). I also have a serious obsession with searching for the dreamy holiday destinations (Manchester really isn’t that sunny) and I aspire to go travelling.
