Summer Glowy Make-up looks are obsessing me at the moment. Right now, it’s the perfect time for catching a stunning tan and creating a glowy make-up look to complement it. If you’re hitting that sun bed in your backyard or escaping for a weekend at the beach, you will want to look the part. Have a look at how I created this look while also protecting my skin from UV rays.

Perfect your make-up base

After you moisturise and hydrate your face, you shall gently apply foundation with a beauty blender. I find it very important to perfect my make-up base by also applying a translucent powder in the T-zone after putting foundation on. To get the perfect summer glowy make-up look I’ve used this powder by NYX and it’s one of their best sellers. High Definition Finishing Powder in 01 is truly one of the products that I highly recommend. It has done major effects on setting my make-up from the first time I’ve used it.

Creating copper eyes & a nude lip

In order to create copper eyes I am using a NYX pencil. I will apply it directly to my eyelid with gentle touch. However, it’s important to use a subtle technique in order to avoid harsh lines. As a final step I always apply 2 coats of mascara, creating a gorgeous effect of glamurous but still natural eyelashes.

Moving on to the lips section, I have applied the stunning Soft Matte Lip Cream in ‘London’ by NYX. Its touch has the perfect glowy summer make-up look effect, making your lips fuller and also natural.

Remember to wear UV protection

The final touch in reaching the perfect glowy summer make-up look is to always remember to add UV protection. Protecting your skin from UV and pollution usually one of the Avène Skin Care products shall be the best to use. For this look I’ve used the Avène Sun Sensitive Spray SPF 30. Its rich and velvety texture shall smoothen, enlighten your skin and also help in protecting you from UV skin damages.

Moreover, whilst you sun bathe, always remember to hydrate your skin with thermal water. You can also use the Avène Eau Thermale and enjoy good hydration on your skin.

While summer is waving goodbye to us, the strong sun is still out there. I haven’t been completely aware of how damaging sun rays can be for both my skin and hair, until the beginning of the season, when I started reading even more about the subject. While protecting my skin from the bad guy literally means using an SPF moisturiser every morning, when it comes to my hair, I discovered this routine that leaves my hair super smooth and protected. In today’s post, I’m showing you exactly how I keep my hair shiny & smooth at the end of summer when my hair needs it the most.

Which products should you use?

One of the best things you can do for your hair is to use professional salon products. Sometimes, these can be a little bit more expensive than the average drugstore, but in the long run your hair will definitely look and feel healthier. Have you ever heard of the professional brand ‘milkshake’? Besides their incredible scent (I want a scented candle please), the products leave your hair softer than ever.

I’ve been using the Milk Shake Sun & More range since summer started and when I first washed my hair with the Milk Shake All Over Shampoo, I felt it to become incredibly smooth. I remember feeling quite intrigued, asking myself ‘Why haven’t I used this before?!’.

How to engage in a healthy hair routine

Well, I’m washing my hair and conditioning with the Milk Shake Sun & More Beauty Mask, twice a week. The mask is nourishing and leaves my hair super smooth. I don’t believe in the idea of not using a hair mask often. I believe that the more you nourish your hair, the healthier it would be. It’s like watering a plant or eating your greens, right? This specific one has organic muru muru and no parabens. No wonder my hair is as healthy as it ever been. Try it for yourself and you won’t believe the changes. The mask is only £8.79 on Notino while the shampoo is £8.69. So, next time you’re running out of shampoo & conditioner, avoid your drugstore and go online. I was pleasantly surprised to see that Notino stocks my favourite hair brand at such an amazing price – way cheaper than what I used to spend on it buying from the beauty salon.

Keeping your moisture locked in the ends of your hair

Even though my hair is moisturised after washing, it’s quite normal for it to lose some of it after a couple of days. Why? Simply because the sun or atmosphere dries it out. I have such a great policy on keeping my hair moisturised. I apply the Milk Shake Sun& More twice a day regularly, before bed and every morning. At night, I keep my hair in a low ponytail or plat to prevent it from breaking. My next step would be buying silk bedsheets as it will help my hair not break during the night.

You should definitely try to switch to the Milk Shake range as it will definitely improve how your hair will look and feel. I’m really happy with the range and would never go back to drugstore, just for the benefits I’ve seen in my hair’s appearance.
