Summer is the time to put your best face forward. Sunkissed, fresh skin is our favourite look for warmer weather, and we’ve tried some of the newest beauty products that can help you achieve this. These are our current favourite products for the month of July.
NYX Epic Wear Liner Sticks
On your wedding day and on hot summer days, you’ll want to wear an eyeliner that’s waterproof, doesn’t smudge, fade, and stays pigmented all day long. NYX’s new Epic Wear Liner Sticks promise to last 36 hours and come in 24 shades, both matte and metallic. These liner sticks are super versatile and are meant to be used on more than just the eyes—perfect for exploring new looks long after your wedding day.
Laneige Cream Skin Collection
Laneige has added two additional products to its Cream Skin collection, which features its special ingredient—White Leaf Tea Water, a key component in the collection’s innovative 2-in-1 hybrid toner and moisturizer formula. The collection’s two new products are the Cream Skin Mist, pictured above, a hydrating spray that can be used to refresh skin on the go (perfect for including in your wedding day beauty kit), and the Cream Skin Milk Oil Cleanser, which is great for removing your makeup at the end of the day.
JB Skin Guru Le Masque
If you’ve been spending some time out on your deck or a patio, you might want to take some extra measures to nourish your skin—especially if you’ve been out in the summer sun. Our current favourite sheet mask is JB Skin Guru’s Le Masque, a biocellulose mask which is drenched in a dreamy milky serum formulated with Vitamin E, which provides hydration and improves the skin’s texture, soothing any redness or irritation.
Caudalie Soleil des Vignes Fragrance
Even though it might be difficult to go on a summer vacay at this time, there’s no reason why you can’t wear a scent that will forever remind you of balmy days under the sun. Our current fave warm-weather fragrance is Caudalie’s newest scent: Soleil des Vignes. With notes of orange blossom, coconut, jasmine and vanilla, this fragrance is beautifully sweet, fresh, delicate and perfect for your wedding day.
Garnier SkinActive Water Rose Micellar Cleansing Water
If you’re looking for a micellar cleansing water that removes makeup and hydrates your skin, look no further than Garnier’s SkinActive Water Rose Micellar Cleansing Water. The key to this micellar water is the addition of rose water, which is known for its anti-inflammatory properties.
Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip & Cheek Glow
Multitasking products are some of our favourite types of products—and it’s especially important for them to work well. For a glowy lip and cheek, we currently love Charlotte Tilbury’s limited edition Pillow Talk Lip & Cheek Glow, which is easy to blend and contains nourishing ingredients such as raspberry leaf stem cell extract and vitamin E. Your beauty look will look especially fresh and fab with this addition to your kit.
Murad Clarifying Oil-Free Cleansing Gel
During the summer, you most likely opt for products that feel lighter on the skin. Murad’s new Clarifying Oil-Free Cleansing Gel is the perfect moisturizer for days when you need something more lightweight. The oil-free formula includes hyaluronic acid for hydration, ginger root extract to soothe and salicylic acid to exfoliate and smooth the skin. The gel consistency feels like a dream on the skin and allows it to absorb effortlessly.
Dermalogica Clear Start Flashfoliant
For brides who are prone to breakouts, a chemical exfoliant can help clear these up tremendously. Dermalogica’s Clear Start line was made specifically for breakout-prone skin, and their new Flashfoliant contains powerful ingredients that leave skin brighter and clearer and prevent future breakouts.
