Hi everyone! Today I thought I'd write about my current summer beauty favourites, the products that I'm reaching for a lot at the moment and what I'm raving about.

Firstly, the Tangle Teezer and the L'oreal Fibrology shampoo are literally making my hair grow and look nice at the same time which in my opinion is a miracle. The hairbrush itself is just amazing as it doesn't pull on your hair at all which minimises hair fall-out and I actually lost this the other week when I moved back from University to home and I had to use a regular hairbrush and that's when I really noticed the difference- I will never go back! Also, I wrote a post on hair growth recently, but the Fibrology thickening shampoo makes my hair look bouncy and thicker without any need for me to blow-dry or style it using heat, meaning my hair is growing longer much quicker. 

Secondly, fake tan is an important product for me and as the skirts and shorts come out in the summer, I'm grabbing the bottle more and more. However, I do really want to build up a natural tan if I can, so whilst I am obsessed with Fake Bake's Flawless Tan (which comes with the most amazing mitt and applies like a dream) the Dove Gradual Tan keeps my skin moisturised and I think doesn't interfere too much with getting a natural tan so I'll be using this more before I go on holiday. Fake Bake or Xen Tan are the fake tans I grab the most when I want to look super bronzed before a night out (I'll be doing a full post on comparisons and reviews of different fake-tans soon). 

A lot of people have been complimenting me on my eyebrows recently, and I'm putting that down to my new faaaave eyebrow product by Benefit- Brow zings. I know it's been around for ages but I don't know what I was doing without it quite frankly because it's so easy to use. The product itself has the wax which you apply first with the little slanted brush followed by the powder and it also comes with a mini pair of tweezers. It's made my eyebrows look defined as well as natural- I aim for Kylie Jenner eyebrows! It's available in 3 shades and as a brunette I use the shade Medium. 

Furthermore on Benefit Make-Up, I'm loving 'They're Real' mascara (enough said about that one?) it's the number 1 selling mascara in the world for a reason and while I don't think it lasts a great amount of time before drying it makes my eyelashes longer than any other mascara potentially bar Lancome Hypnose Star, and it's pretty resistant. The Hoola bronzer I will never get bored of as it is a matte olive-brown colour and a fave when I want to contour. I pair it with the Watts-Up gold highlighter on my cheek bones and I have such a nice glowy bronzed summertime look. 

Lastly, as a lighter foundation this summer I am mainly using standard Garnier BB cream or tinted moisturiser, but when I want a bit more coverage I love the Bourjois CC cream. Whilst this product hasn't got a wide range of shades, it's dewy and light finish makes my skin look fresh and doesn't dry it out. To complete the look I am OBSESSED with the Kardashians lip set (surprise surprise), as those ladies all have amazing lips and lip make-up is said to be what has transformed Kylie Jenner these days. I love the lip-stick in 'Natural'- it comes with a double ended product, one end is a lipliner and the other is a lipstick and then you apply the famous 'honey stick' on top. I'm going to do a full review or make-up tutorial on the Kardashians look soon where I'll cover this in more detail but I think one of the only places you can grab this is feelunique.com and I really recommend it.
Just showing off now, but it's definitely top-down weather!
Thanks for reading and I hope you're enjoying your summer!
Lots of love x
