My Summer Beauty Picks

I'm not going to lie, the contents of my makeup bag pretty much stays the same all year round apart from a few bits here and there. I'm just not adventurous with my makeup, I know what suits me and what I feel comfortable with so I don't tend to really experiment with it too much. That being said I do love treating myself to a few new beauty bits every so often, who doesn't? Recently I've replaced a few of my trusty products and switched in some new brands to change things up a little for Summer so I thought I'd share my current picks for my makeup bag.
Summer Beauty Picks including Rimmel, Maybelline and Benefit
The first thing I wanted to mention is my foundation as I recently changed from my favourite Rimmel Lasting Finish to the L'oreal Paris True Match. I've done a full post on this so I won't go on too much but I've been so impressed and I just wish I'd made the change sooner! I'm sure I'll go back to the Rimmel foundation at some point as it works so well with my skin but the True Match has been far better than I expected. It's definitely different as it's much more lightweight and buildable but overall it gives a nice finish. I'm currently still using my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. I just haven't found anything better than this and I can't see myself buying any different any time soon. It's so affordable and is fab at covering up any breakouts. The final few products I've been using are the Seventeen Define and Conquer Contour Kit, Rimmel Lasting Finish Blush in the shade Pink Rose and my usual Maybelline Matte Maker Powder. I'm still so sad Seventeen have been discontinued, this contour palette is brilliant and I really don't want to have to try and find another. The blush has been a go to of mine for a few years now and for £3.99 you just can't go wrong! The same goes for the powder, I don't see the point in spending loads on a product like that. I don't always use highlighter but if so I tend to reach for my Manna Kadar 3-in-1 which gives such a lovely glow. I've had this Benefit Roller Lash Mascara for a while but I recently picked up the Maybelline Lash Sensational to replace it so I can't wait to see if it's as good as everyone says. Finally I have my Max Factor lipstick in the shade Burnt Caramel. I've lost count of the amount of times I've mentioned this on my blog, it's just the perfect shade for me and I don't often use anything else.

One beauty product I am always buying more of is nail polish and in Summer especially I just can't help myself. I am all about the pretty pastels and I'm currently obsessed with the CND Vinylux polishes so I know these are going to be a go to of mine during the next few months. The pastel yellow colour is beautiful and just perfect if you're going on holiday. I never used to like having yellow nail polish on but there's just something about this that looks gorgeous. I'm also really enjoying the shade Dragon Fruit by Barry M at the moment too which is a beautiful light pink, again great with a tan!
Next Just Pink Perfume, The Body Shop Peach Body Mist, CND Nail Polishes
The final few things I'm using a lot at the moment are my Just Pink Perfume and my Peach Body Mist from The Body Shop. I picked up Just Pink from Next last year for about £12 and as it's such a big bottle, I'm still yet to get through it! I tend to reach for this a lot in Summer as it's so sweet, and I'm pretty sure it's one I'll always repurchase. You can't beat The Body Shop for the best smelling scents. The peach range is so up my street and I still can't get over how nice this body mist is. Again it's another perfect one for Summer, it just makes me think of being on holiday every time I use it. It's so fresh and sweet and it really lingers which I love.

So that's some of my summer beauty picks! When I find something I love I tend to stick with it and it takes a lot for me to try a different brand, so these really are trusty favourites of mine. I'd love to know if you're a fan of any of these products too?
