Summer Beauty Trends 2017

*Collaborative post

Are you summer holiday fed up? Or are you still enjoying it now we are a couple of weeks in? And are you actually managing to find any time for yourself? I know I’m struggling, thanks to the rain! Although I did manage a gym trip today. Exercising at the moment is a sure fire way of making myself feel a little better and less stressed when the kids get a bit too much. I’m also trying to find a little time to do some things I enjoy. Like planning holidays, reading a magazine and pinning. Oh how that little app sucks me in. I’ve been pinning lots of summer outfits and summer beauty trends. I know the recent weather thinks summer is over but I’m not ready yet.

Dewy skin 

I keep trying and failing at this look as my skin seems to have decided to be a teenager again, minus the smooth wrinkle free forehead. I do have an amazing Mac cream blusher but I think I need a new foundation with a satin finish and to use more highlighter. 

Bright eyes and smudged eyeliner

I usually play it safe with my eye makeup and love a good black liquid liner for a flick. However after seeing all the pictures of bright eye shadows and eye liners it’s a look I’m going to try and re create. I’m loving all the blues and pinks.

Glossy lips

I’ve always been more of a fan of glossy lips than matt. Maybe not quite as glossy as the juicy tubes I used to buy and always get my hair stuck in, anyone else? Bold, glossy lips are all the rage and will continue into the winter. 

Fake tan

Safer than a real tan I tend to use a gradual tanner but have recently bought skinny tan to try. I have had a few fake tan disasters over the years, think blotchy patches and orange palms. So I now always exfoliate first and use a mitt. 

Nails

Colourful nails always help to make me feel more polished (haha) when the rest of me feels scruffy. I’ve been getting gel nails done and am loving the trend of a different hue for each nail.
