My Fave Summer Glow Makeup Products

 

It’s now September, but I’m still keeping that summer glow alive with the help of these fave ‘enhancers’ and when combined with a bit of bronzer, the result is just fab. No need for self-tanner either (although that’s also a really great option) and the best part? It’s super easy and can be customized for every skin tone and using products you may already have.

My 5 Fave CHANEL Palettes

 

 

By popular request, I’ve rounded up my top 5 CHANEL eyeshadow palettes. These are the ones I reach for the most and apart from them all being shades I gravitate to, they also happen to never let me down quality-wise. Neutral-leaning but with an edge (hello, red hue), all five palettes are super wearable, flattering, and have definitely proved their worth.

LORAC · Mega Beam Highlighters & Holy Mascara

 

 

I first heard of LORAC about 25 years ago and while I was on a weekend trip to NYC, I purchased a couple of products  … which then almost landed me in major trouble at customs upon my return home. The short version is that the customs agent was a real a$$ and wanted to nail me on the 2 items claiming they were “super expensive” (they weren’t), but the hassle was so, so real. That said, at least I got a good story out of it! So when this totally unexpected package came in the other day, it brought all those memories back — but with a stress-free ending this time around.

Givenchy · Le Rouge Sheer Velvet & L’Interdit EDP Rouge

 

Givenchy has just launched two new products for 2021, Le Rouge Sheer Velvet lipsticks and L’Interdit Eau de Parfum Rouge, the newest addition to the growing L’Interdit fragrance family. The brand was kind enough to send both along for me to try, and I won’t get into detail here, but I’ll leave it at … wow.

CHANEL Fall-Winter 2021 · Tone On Tone Collection

 

I know it’s still summer, but beauty marches to its own calendar … case in point: today’s post on CHANEL’s Fall-Winter 2021 Tone On Tone Collection. With a focused colour palette, this collection is about a hushed kind of harmony, and while winter might be in its name, to me this grouping seems like it’s encapsulating fall’s full splendour — which is what I’ll be going with, as I’m nowhere near ready to even think of cold weather.
