Today i’m really feeling them summer vibes. Yes i know it isn’t summer yet but hey, a girl can dream can’t she? I cannot wait for the sunshine, beach trips and adventures. In fact that is my motivation lately. I am really missing embracing the warm sunlight on my cheeks and feeling like life just couldn’t get any better.
My favourite memory of summer last year was driving to the beach through the country roads, sun shining, music playing, window open making wave motions with my hand letting the wind breeze through my fingers. Feeling like life couldn’t get any better than this. Perfect. But I can’t be the only one who loves this, right?!
(Maybe i should be a writer, this descriptive stuff is kinda fun!)
So anyway, whilst dreaming of summer i thought a perfect post would be makeup that is just wonderful for the summer.
Something that screams bronzed babe, what product fits this description best?
The Too Faced Soul Mates blush/bronzer duo? Yesss that’s the one! Although i will admit that i only bought this just after christmas so i haven’t used in the summer but i think it would be absolutely amazing and fits my description perfectly.
I especially love bronzer in the summer, it gives a sun kissed look and is really gorgeous on anyone. I sometimes don’t even wear foundation because it’s hot and it gets sticky and melts. But i do use bronzer alone to look bronzed and natural, releasing that inner beach babe. My mum taught me that trick, it’s what she used to do.
This bronzer is a nice dark shade, as is the blusher which is kind of a coral colour. It has some shimmer to it but nothing too jazzy. Haha that sounds great! It leaves your cheeks looking nice and sun kissed. It’s a warm shade rather than a cooler toned colour. Something i usually don’t go for, but it is nice for bronzing just not so much contouring for me personally, yes there is a difference, crazy! The blusher compliments it just perfectly, i guess that’s why they’re soul mates heh??
This retails at around £26 which is quite pricey. I can’t comment because i got mine for £3.00 at a tkmaxx sale because it had no packaging. The best sale item, EVER!
Bronzer and Blush: the power couple of beauty. A duo made in makeup heaven to add warmth, contour and a pop of color for the radiant look of true love. Soul Mates Blushing Bronzer combines a shimmering, sun-kissed bronze and a brightening pop of blush that can be used separately or blended together for a healthy, beautiful glow. -Too Faced
And thats it, my very random post on a summer appropriate bronzer. Hope you enjoyed. Tell me your summer faves, i’d love to know and stock up!
