I realised i hadn't done a favorites post in a while my last one was way back in May and as you can imagine their has been a fair few new products i've been loving since then. 
As the post is covering the last few months of favorites and they all have a Summery theme i've called the post My Summer Beauty Favorites i thought it would be good way to share with you all of my Summer essentials for nails, hair and skin. 

Vaseline Spray&Go Body Moisturiser Aloe Vera-
I reviewed the Coco Butter one of the Vaseline Spray&Go moisturisers a while back, if you read it you would no how much i loved it. I took it away on holiday with me however when i came back with my sore and peeling skin i decided to go and pick up the Aloe Vera version. I love the Aloe Vera one just as much, its just as good as the cocoa Butter one and i also love the smell its so fresh and it really did help to sooth my poor skin. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a easy to use Summer Moisteriser to sooth their skin. 

Aussie Beach Mate Shampoo and Beach Mate 3 Minute Miracle Deep Treatment-
I am a big fan of the Aussie haircare range they always leave my hair feeling and looking great. I picked up the the Beach Mate version of the Miracle Moist shampoo and deep conditioner to take away on holiday with me to help deal with the effects of sun, sea and chlorine on my hair. Even though i also really like the normal conditioner from the range, when i go on holiday i like to take the Deep Conditioner with me and use it every time i wash my hair to keep it soft and well conditioned. 

L'oreal Sublime Bronze Self Tanning Elixir- 
Now this is a fairly new favorite i've only been using it for a few weeks now but I'm really enjoying it and I'm pretty impressed with both the colour and the finish, I'm not going tot say too much more about it as i will do a full review with pictures soon for anybody interested.

Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream-
I no this little beauty has had a few mentions on the blog now, but no Summer favorites would be complete with out it! Since first trying it this has now become my everyday base, i love the colour its perfect for me and it just brightens the skin so well its got great coverage for a CC cream whilst still being light enough for the Summer. 

Benefit Watts Up Highlighter-
This is my favorite new highlighter its a great one for Summer as its a cream highlighter stick in a gorgeous champagne colour that goes so well with tanned skin. It looks amazing when it catches the light just the most beautiful soft illuminated finish. 

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation-
I've had this foundation a few months now and it has quickly become my favorite, whereas i wear the Boujois CC Cream on a day to day basis at work etc when i've been going out and wearing foundation this is the one i've been reaching for. The light and dewy finish make this a great Summer foundation. 

L'oreal L'Exraordinaire Liquid lipsticks-
Summer lips for me are all about bright pops of colour and glossy finishes, and the L'oreal Liquid Lipsticks have both of them covered. There is a great selection of bold Summer colours in the collection and also a few pretty nudes if bright lips aren't your thing. They are super moisteriseing on the lips and give a brilliant glossy finish, I would recommend my two favorites Tangerine Sonate and Fuscia Drama.

Nars Laguna Bronzer- 
No Summer favorites would be complete without a bronzer and my bronzer of choice this Summer has been Nars Laguna. I've never found a more natural colored bronzer, its not orange in the slightest it just gives you a natural tanned colour to the skin. I've been using it all over the face and also for contouring and it works brilliantly for both, I'm also impressed with how well this seems to be lasting i use it everyday and it looks barely touched! 

Gosh Forever Eye Shadow Stick and Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadows-
For me Summer eyes are all about the cream products, there quick and simple to use and look so good with that fresh dewy Summer makeup. Of course in the heat you don't want creams that will crease, two of my favorite cream products that don't crease are the Gosh Shadow Sticks and the Benefit cream Shadows both have a great selection of colours and last really well on the eyes. 

BarryM Pastel Nail Paints-
I cant remember the last time i used a dark colour on my nails, for me Summer is all about the pastels! Some of my favorite pastel polishes and the ones i've been loving are the BarryM ones both the original Nail paints and the Jelly polishes have great colours and are such good quality for the price definite winner for Summer nails. 

What are your Summer beauty favorites?
