Your summer beauty routine in seven gorgeous products

Summer beauty can be a tricky business. Sweat, sunburn and flaky patches can leave our complexions looking dull and tired, and, being Irish, our beauty products are mostly dedicated to cooler weather options. Everyone talks about a summer wardrobe – but what about a summer makeup bag?

Well, look no further IMAGE readers. These seven saviour products will compliment your summer skin and have you looking like it’s golden hour all day long.

Eve Lom Cleanser, €68 from Eve Lom

eve-lom-cleanser

This cult classic (now over 20 years old) has spawned many copies, but few are as powerful as the original. Full of soothing chamomile and moisturising cocoa butter, it removes dirt and cleanses without stripping the skin. Pricey but worth it.

 

Vichy Ideal Body 3 Gold Oil, €25 from Meagher’s Pharmacy

Just the right amount of shimmer, and fab softening ingredients to get skin glowing. It also smells gorgeous and is flattering on even the palest Celtic skin tones.

 

Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick, €38 from Brown Thomas

s1587435-main-zoom

This is lightweight, non-greasy and seamlessly covers any spot or imperfection without looking heavy. As a plus, it’s also full of all sorts of good stuff for the skin – such as olive extracts and shea butter – which helps moisturise, but not with a greasy residue. The tube format means you can swipe this on the areas you need and blend in no time at all.

The Balm Nude Beach Eyeshadow Palette, now €32.40 from Debenhams

The perfect summer holiday palette – twelve eye-popping and velvety shades of coppers, bronzes, nudes, peaches and burgundies. With the dreamiest of neutrals and intense shades, you can create an infinite amount of looks to go from the beach to the bar. It’s a super affordable holiday treat to yourself to too, as it’s currently on sale at Debenhams.

 

NARS Multiple in Orgasm, €41 from Brown Thomas

NARS’ now-cult classic Orgasm blush is a favourite for a reason: it literally suits every skin tone but particularly shines on paler hues. Their gorgeous Orgasm multiple is joy in a tube; it sets on skin seamlessly, giving an instant, naturally flushed glow and is the best blusher I’ve used in months.

 

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Gold Deposit, €31.50 from Arnotts

blank

MAC’S Mineralize Skinfinish in Gold Deposit is a reflective copper bronze that when stroked on the apples of your cheeks, the tip of your nose, across your forehead and on your collarbones, will really let you cheat a summer glow (or enhance the one you already have).

MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour in Fashion Legacy, €22 from Arnotts

77x1832xmy3n01large

 

MAC’s Retro Matte colour range is bold, bright and beautiful and lips stay saturated throughout the day. This tube’s bright orange undertones make it the perfect summer evening red.
