Summer Complexion

If you’ve been on Instagram lately, the oh so photogenic palette below may look familiar… This is because Hourglass recently released a limited edition palette called the Ambient Lighting Edit – Surreal Light. Complete with a powder, bronzer, blushes and highlighter – what’s not to love about this gorgeous palette?! 🙂

Pampering Session

Treat yourself this Summer season with some coffee goodies from Frank Body. I recently discovered the label and am keen to try out their products! Their Original Coffee Scrub and moisturising lip-balm are at the top of my beauty wishlist…

I absolutely love this beauty spread by flatlay queen Design by Aikonik! For more gorgeous flatlays and inspiration, I recommend checking out her Instagram account @designbyaikonik.

Pretty in Pink

Can I just say, pink is having a moment this year and this Spring & Summer are no exception! MAC have released a huge range of covetable colours in recent weeks and I’m keen to pop in store and test some of these beauties out! For now, I’ll just admire from afar from the comfort of my couch… The joys of online shopping! 🙂

Shine Bright Like a Diamond

I’m a sucker when it comes to glitter so the trend of sparkles in beauty has me smiling! I’ve experimented with some more subtle and finer sparkles (is that even a thing?) of late, however am keen to try out the statement glitter eyeshadow trend!

What are your thoughts on this beauty trend?

Liquid Lipstick

Liquid lipstick is having a moment and from the amount of brands releasing new liquid lipstick collections of late, shows no sign of disappearing anytime soon. I recently watched a beauty review by one of my favourite British vlogger, I Covet Thee. She shared her favourite liquid lipsticks of the season and recommended the new Chanel Rouge Allure Inks for their long lasting colour and quality…

Click Refresh

For the ultimate pick-me-up, Mario Badescu Skincare has you covered… Their facial spray with aloe, herbs and rosewater is a refreshing and hydrating mist ideal for after a swim or day at the beach.

Stop and Smell The Daisies

I may be a little biased as the perfume is called Daisy and my blog’s called Daisy Chain Daydreams, however Marc Jacobs fresh and feminine Daisy scent is a Spring/Summer beauty must have. Infused with the freshness of wild strawberries, vintage violet petals and a luminous blend of gardenia and jasmine, it’s perfect for a relaxed picnic or sophisticated date in town.
