Top 5 Beauty Essentials For Summer:

Hey everyone, 
June is finally here and with all the lucky people going on their holidays I thought I'd do another top five post, this time it's my Summer Beauty Essentials:
1. Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan by Marissa Carter:
Tanning in the summer can help to make your skin tone appear more even, which can help with your confidence when getting into that bikini on a sunny holiday. Whether your like me and you love to embrace your pale but would like an extra glow for summer, or you’re a tanaholic who likes a deeper colour this is the perfect tan for you! 
Wash off after an hour for the perfect summer glow, or leave on for up to 3 for those of you that like your tan. This tan is amazing and natural looking whatever colour your looking for, I did a full review with pictures of this tan HERE!
         
2. Sunscreen-La Roche-Posay Extreme Face Fluid SPF50:
If there's one beauty product you use this summer make it a sunscreen. Sunscreen is so important and using it on your face will help to protect you against sun damage and keep you looking younger for longer. For those of you looking for a sunscreen for your face this is perfect. Its Fragrance-free, paraben-free, non-comedogenic and water resistant so perfect for when your hanging out around the pool! 

 3. Aloe Vera Gel:
Great for use as after-sun or on the face to reduce redness and the appearance of acne scarring! Tip: If you put it in the fridge its extra soothing on sunburn. 
I did a post on the uses of Aloe Vera Gel for acne scarring and redness HERE!

 4. Benefit Highbeam:
This is the perfect highlighter for summer, I love it as it gives a pink dewy glowing effect. After a day beside the pool nothing is prettier than subtle but healthy looking makeup for the evening ahead. I like to use this on my brow and cheek bones as well as a small amount on my cupids bow. Tip: A little bit of shimmer/highlight down the center of your leg can make them appear longer and slimmer.

5. L'Oreal Glam Bronze Mineral Pearls
This is my go to bronzer for summer unlike my favourite matte's for contouring this has a bit of shimmer to really give you that sun kissed look. In the summer months especially on holiday I tend not to contour and instead use a bronzer with some shimmer, I like to apply it wherever the sun hits to give me a glow... cheeks, a small amount down the center of my nose and the side of my forehead as well as along my collar bone.

What would be your top 5 beauty picks for the summer?
