Seeing as I've missed a couple of monthly favourite videos, I thought I would give you a quick run-down of my recent favourite beauty products. A lot of these favourites are products that I've had for a while but have fallen back in love with over Summer, but some are new to my collection...

Base Faves:
Chanel Healthy Glow Foundation:
I've done a full review on this foundation before so go and check out that post if you want more detail. But I've fallen back in love with this foundation recently as I think it's perfect for Summer. It's medium coverage which means that it's quite light on the skin and it doesn't look cakey, but it evens out the skin tone and gives a natural flawless look. It also doesn't make me extra oily throughout the day which I love during Summer seeing as my skin type is naturally quite oily anyway.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette:
I've talked about this a thousand times before but for a natural Summer makeup look, this is a staple. The bronzer shade (Dim Light) has a gorgeous shimmer running through it which gives a gorgeous warm glow to the skin even though it's a powder formula. I've also been using the shade Incandescent Light as a daytime highlight on the tops of my cheekbones as it's a beautiful, subtle shimmer and catches the light really naturally.

Eye Faves:
Bodyshop Honey Bronzer:
I know this product is a bronzer but during the Summer months I love to apply bronzer as an eyeshadow. It gives a lovely warmth to the eyes and this is perfect as a crease shade too because it's matte. Using this one product really makes a difference to the eyes and it's so quick and simple for a natural look. I mostly like doing this on holiday when I've got a bit more of a tan and it also makes it easier for travelling because you don't have to worry about taking eyeshadow palettes!

Lip Faves:

Mac 'Honey Love':
 the newest nude to my collection. It's a matte formula but very comfortable on the lips, not drying at all. It's also great to layer over darker nudes in the centre of the lips to create an ombre effect!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams; Cannes and Milan:
Cannes is a lovely brown toned nude and Milan is a bright pink which is gorgeous for Summer! They're very creamy to apply, dry to a matte finish quickly and feel very comfortable to wear on the lips. However, they do need re-applying during the day as they tend to fade slightly, but I don't mind that!

Body Faves:
Bondi Sands Liquid Gold:
I'm not usually one for fake tan if I'm honest. But as I've got older I'm much more aware of sun damage and so I'd prefer to get a natural looking tan without damaging my skin by sunbathing! So I was recommended this tanning oil as it's meant to be the best....and it is! It's a dry oil which means it instantly soaks into the skin when it's applied and doesn't leave the skin feeling greasy. You don't have to wash it off which means is a great last minute tan if you're in a rush, and you can notice the different within an hour of applying! I just use a cheap tanning mitt and apply a thin layer all over my body in circular motions and it leaves no streaks and the best looking, even, natural tan! Winning.
