Top 5 Summer Beauty Bag Essentials



Summer beauty is the tropical tanned dewy vacation glow with subtle pops of shimmer hues, a nice cat eye and a pink nude lip. Each of us have just the perfect idea of what summer looks like, smells like and even feels like. It’s a true time to enjoy  basking in the sun rays to create a natural tanned look. Now, for enhancing that summer tan, I am confident I have the perfect selections for you to build an effortless bronzed make up look. I curated my absolute essentials to get through the Summer beauty trends, I’m certain of what works and have tested the quality for myself. This is where your money is best spent.

In the summer time I will always opt for a lightweight, luminous base that gives the skin a gentle fresh shimmer and sheer dewy finish without being too heavy on. I am not one to set out of my comfort zone and try elaborate make up looks but I am inspired to creating a timeless natural flawless aesthetic that wont go out of trend.

                                                             BRIGHTENING BASE                                                              

What struck me as a perfect option for every skin tone, and is really one of those universal shades that compliment all skin types. To add that element of sun-kissed skin, I work a few pumps of the Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base in Color Golden Radiance No. 02. This glides across the skin on my face, neck, and décolleté, hydrating for and immediate way to a radiant healthy even-looking complexion. This is ideal for those days when you want a minimal approach to sun kissed dewy skin or even complimented with a medium to light coverage foundation.

Burberry has added wild rose extract to their formula which acts as an anti-inflammatory, soothing irritated skin. This is also a rich source of antioxidants, which can help strengthen skin cells and regenerate skin tissue to keep the skin hydrated and protected while providing that beautiful glow.  I know I can count on this to revive my skin while providing me with immediately and long lasting hydration and moisture!

                                                           FLAWLESS FOUNDATION                                                      

One makeup product I can’t live without all year round is the Christian Dior – Diorskin Forever Perfect Foundation . If you were wondering,  I wear shade Almond Beige No. 034, and for those who have tried this formula, you know exactly what I am talking about. This is such a beautiful application, I noticed my complexion appeared flawless and I knew this is why it had “Perfect” in it’s name. It truly is just that.

                                                         HIGHLIGHTING POWDER                                                        

Burberry Fresh Glow Highlighter is always a stunning pick, the rose gold finish over my luminous skin, this finish really sets the tone for effortless and radiant highlight.  Since I started sweeping the pearly rose gold translucent powder onto my skin I have, in short, never stopped. I opt for shade Rose Gold to brighten my complexion. This is perfect if you want a lightweight and buildable look that reflects a radiant complexion.

                                                           HIGHLIGHTING PEN                                                                

I love how easily this glides across the skin, the Burberry Fresh Glow Highlighting Luminous Pen with it’s uniquely dome shape precision makes it effortless in adding extra highlight to those hard to reach areas. I apply mine to the inner corner of the eyes, to brighten and open up my eyes. I will swipe along the bridge and tip of my nose, and on my cupid bow to add that extra highlight. I even will  apply around the top of my eye brow bone, as this creamy application blends so beautifully for a natural subtle highlight.

                                                                SUMMER SCENT                                                                   

The ways I interpret  this scent can be charming, elegant, fresh, and even unforgettable. I find myself going back to my 2010 Burberry Summer fragrance each year, with its feminine and mainly flowery – consists of lily, freesia, white rose and Lonicera extracts. I really find this to be a prefect reflection of what I love during summer time. The  heart of the smell of flowers and the sweet smell of fresh fruit. The top notes have peach, black currant, mandarin orange, pomegranate so you can see why I love this scent so much.  The base consist of musk, cedar and sandal wood and when it is dry and sealed, its a very subtle and light scent. Like every aspect of my life, I have a style as for my adornment for luxurious scents they are anything but ordinary.

 I  would like to personal thank Burberry Beauty, Sephora and Influenster for this wonderful opportunity to try these free full size samples of the Burberry product (scent & Dior Foundation I purchased on my own). All experiences and opinions are also my own. I enjoyed trying these and found myself going back to them day after day I could not wait to share with everyone.  Photo Credit: Orelbe Rodriguez-Pena (My Fiancé)
