“Sun is shining. Weather is sweet. Makes you wanna move your dancing feet”. But summer also means a lot of hardships for both your skin and hair. We’ve selected our favourite products in order to help you maintain a stunning and healthy body, despite the heat.
Our new make up crushes
1. Lancôme, Monsieur Big Waterproof
Finding the right mascara is always a difficult task, especially around summer. Lancôme’s new mascara guarantees a long-lasting intense look (up to 24h) while being waterproof. You can enjoy all those splashes from now on! It also provides you with all the volume you could ever wish for: eyelashes are naturally separated by the brush’s smooth fibres.
2. Dior Backstage Eye Palette
Dior has recently created a new product range inspired by its backstage make up artists for fashion shows, using their experience and hacks to instantly highlight beauty. This eye palette was specifically conceived to be worn for a long period of time, is rich in pigment and is adapted to every type of complexion.
3. Marc Jacobs Beauty, Enamored Hydrating Lip Gloss Stick
Marc Jacob’s latest innovation: a hybrid gloss in a stick format. It reunites both the bright shine of a gloss and the intense hydration of a balm. It’s as much about the refreshing and pouty effect it provides as the subtle mentholated and kahai oil infusion touch. Enamored lip-gloss exists in eight colours.
