After a couple of weekends spent al fresco dining with an Aperol Spritz in hand, we’re starting to feel extra optimistic about a summer spent by the beach. And to make holiday beauty shopping feel a little more exciting (as if it wasn’t enough already), we thought we’d round up some of our favourite warm-weather products, based on your favourite cocktail.
So, whether you’re always searching the menu for a Passion Fruit Martini or you’re the Pina Colada all-year-round type – we think you’re going to like this one.
Pina Colada – Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer
If a Pina Colada is your thing, that pretty much guarantees that you’re into coconut. The Marc Jacobs Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer is a dream. The creamy lightweight texture gives skin the healthiest radiance. It’s infused with a range of coconutty ingredients such as coconut milk to prime and smooth, coconut water to hydrate and coconut extract to transport you to the beaches of the Caribbean.
Sex on the Beach – Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye Palette
A classic first girls’ holiday cocktail that will forever hold a place in many of our hearts is of course, a Sex on the Beach - steering us towards another oldie but goldie, the Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Palette. It holds plenty of peach shades which are much easier to wear than you might think, but there are also plenty of neutrals to ease yourself in with. And the peach scent is definitely nicer than Schnapps.
Espresso Martini – Frank Lip Scrub
Summertime is the perfect opportunity to make sure you’re exfoliated and hydrated all over - including your lips. So, while we’re sure you’re excited to get your hands on some new fun lip products, a tried and tested scrub is probably a better place to start. And if you like Espresso Martinis, you’re in luck. Frank Body’s Lip Scrub is particularly great because not only is it a pro at removing any dryness, it contains actual coffee seed grinds and raw sugar so it tastes pretty good too.
Mojito – Mint Melt Cooling Face Primer
As temperatures rise it’s important you’ve got some products you can count on to ensure your makeup stays in place and if it has cooling effects then it’s a win win. Cue E.l.f’s Mint Melt Cooling Face Primer, which if you like Mojitos, is the product for you. This multitasking primer comes in a gel texture with hyaluronic acid, to keep you feeling hydrated. And we love the added mint scent too.
Passion Fruit Martini – Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lustre In Ibiza Nights
A Passion Fruit Martini always has us hankering after evenings on holiday, so what better product to feature than Charlotte Tilbury’s Lip Lustre In Ibiza Nights. It’s pretty sheer, so will pair well with a variety of different lip shades and despite being non-stick is actually quite long-lasting.
