atelier cologne lancome bronze and glow

Writing this note from the sunny Greek Island of Corfu! Before the honeymoon feeling goes away and whilst I have enough time in the day…just wanted to share a few products that came with me on holiday and made a world of difference to my beauty routine.

When treating yourself to sun, sea and sand a luxurious hotel, there’s nothing quite like the feeling of having indulgent beauty products to compliment the luscious summer nights.

Nuxe – Huile De Prodigieuse

I can now absolutely see what all the fuss is about with this cult product. Bursting with Vitamin E this nourishing and hydrating multi-purpose oil is the perfect summer holiday moisturiser. Not only is it great for glowing skin, it works so well as a hair serum too! I’ve been drenching my hair in the stuff. THE SCENT is absolutely delicious, featuring notes of sweet almond and hazelnut. You could double this up as a massage oil 😉

NuxeReve De Miel lip balm

Forever a firm favourite. Loaded with shea butter and honey it’s nourishing and smells good enough to eat . The best thing about this lip balm is that the hydration lasts for hours unlike most of my balms…

You can pick up both the oil and the lip balm for £35 instead of £42 if you grab it here.

Nuxe – Tanning Oil SPF 30

Smells exactly like summer holiday in bottle. Think Tropical fruits and vanilla. You will get a gorgeous glow with this oil but BE WARNED, you’ll need to apply generously and regularly if in direct and strong sun. I burnt my belly!

Lancome – Bronze and Glow Palette

Look no further for a deep, rich bronze. With my tan I’ve felt my Hoola bronzer was a little flat but this genourous palette offers a warm glow and the highlight is out of this world. Think natural, subtle but ‘lit-from-within’ light on your cheeks.

Charlotte Tilbury – Star Gold Shadow

I’m so lazy with eye make up so this all-over shadow is easy to blend with your finger and still has a professional looking finish. Go for this shade or the rose gold if you have fair skin.

Vichy – Ideal Body Extraordinary Shimmer Oil

I started layering this on my skin on holiday but now can’t help but add a few drops to my moisturiser during the day. Offering a shimmer and sheen to the skin that’s subtle but catches the light perfectly. Bronzed goddess must-have.

Atelier Cologne – Mimosa Indigo

With notes of white leather and you guessed it, mimosa, this perfume as fast become my summer favourite. It pains me a little to use it as I only have a 30ml and I want to make this baby last the season. I’ve had SO many compliments wearing it with comments like ‘you smell like sun lotion’ I love it. Despite there not being this note in the fragrance, you really can smell the coconut!

Hey YA’LL (that phrase is on the mind – currently sat in Paris with a few Texans). I’ve been meaning to put up this post for a while simply because I found a groove in my daily make up bag that works so well – thought I’d share in case you love it too. Nothing super fancy or creative just my standard I’m-in-a-rush-to-work type thing that’s either a nude lip look or red lip look.

HIT IT!

dior mirage essie urban jungle summer nail art

indian nail art finished look

{Indian summer inspiration}

I never pegged myself a nail artist and in all honesty up until last year I could barely paint my nails. “Be patient and start with the hand you find hardest to paint,” Leeanne of Tips Nail Bar told me. Well her genius advice worked and now I’m finding myself doing a lot more than just two coats. If I can do it so can you!

This look was inspired by the textures and colours of an Indian sari and my eyes wearing orange nail polish is the kick off to summer beauty. I wanted to keep it a little on trend by including a new nude (Dior’s Yacht) as the base.

{Minimal but bright}

Oh the colour of the year! Dior nailed it with Mirage. Complemented wonderfully with Essie’s Urban Jungle. My favourite nude of the year so far. This look is so easy to do with Sephora’s Complete Art At Your Fingertips Nail Kit.

{Naughty Nautical}

This is easily the hottest nail polish to be swooned over in the blogosphere. Cobalt blue is all the rage in the luxe summer collections and Lancome’s Nuit D’Azur for their Summer 2014 collection.
