makeup packing

Summer is around the corner, whatever your plans are holidays, festivals or a quiet summer at home we got you covered! We have put a list of the best beauty products of 2019 (we have tried them all) to make you look healthy and stunning as always. The best thing is... after reading this blog you will definitely have spare space in your suitcase for shopping abroad! 😎


This is your BFF - It’s so important to protect your face and body from the sun, it protects you from getting wrinkles and even skin cancer. Apply sunscreen 30mins before stepping out, if you are wearing make-up, make sure you give a bit of extra time to penetrate and settle into your skin.

@keiladoyle recommends: La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Ultra Light Fluid SPF 50 - Provides very high face sun protection for normal to combination skin. The non-greasy fluid is suitable for use on fair and sensitive skin.

"I've been using this sunscreen for ages as I have very sensitive skin, I never get sunburns with it and I love that it's non-greasy. Always re-apply if you go to the ocean a lot."

@andreromanm recommends: Ambre Solaire SPF 30 Protection Lotion - 24hr protection, non-greasy and absorbs quickly.



If you’re not wearing make-up this summer, we would recommend you to wear primer. This will protect your skin from pollution and also, it will find in your pores making you look like you have a flawless and smooth face.

@andreromanm recommends: Too Faced Hangover Primer - It hydrates, smooths and brightens skin for a dewy, healthy looking finish.

"I personally like it because it smells like coconut and gives my skin a fresh revival"

@keiladoyle recommends E.l.f. Mineral Infused Face Primer - Creates a smooth skin,fills in fine lines and refines your complexion. The weightless silky formula has a natural matte finish and is great for all skin types. Great price too!


Body Shimmer Oil

Shimmer body oil is a must this summer! It will not only hydrate your skin but also make you glow! There’s is so many products in the market, but we have tried them all and chose our favourites ones.

Anastasia Beverly hills Body Oil - lightweight body oil that gives skin a sun-kissed glow and also hydrates your skin.

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse – Hydrating formula that nourishes the face, body and hair and leaves skin shimmering with mineral particles. This is perfect for the beach as it has a non sticky formula and smells like the beach.

Lip Balm

There’s nothing worse than heading out and forgetting a lip balm, your lips will drive you crazy the whole day (well it happens to us haha). Too much heat and too much sun exposure can cause irritation to your lips, making them painful, chapped and dry.

@keiladoyle @andrearomanm recommend - NARS Cosmetics Afterglow Lip Balm a clear balm formula that delivers hydrating benefits to leave lips feeling smooth and supple.

Carmex Lip Balm - Nothing beats tradition. This lip balm soothes, moisturises, and relieves, resulting in soft, healthy looking lips.


Facial Wipes

It's very handy to have wipes in your bag this summer. They come with a cleansing product already on them so if you’re feeling hot and sweaty, you can use them to feel refreshed. There are so many choices of wipes depending on your skin type. @keiladoyle recommends: Korres Natural Cleaning wipes


Summer is the perfect time to show off that Jlo bronze look. Even if you don’t have time to be in the sun, a bronzer will give you that look!

Fenty SUN STALK - A longwear, transfer-resistant bronzing powder giving you an instant sun-soaked glow

Rimmel Natural Bronzer Waterproof Bronzing Powder - Waterproof bronzing powder with a velvet soft texture that leaves you with a matte, natural and bronzed look.

Waterproof Mascara

If you don’t like wearing make up in the summer, we would recommend you wear at least mascara! It will make such a big difference and will you an effortless look. Waterproof mascaras are perfect for summer, no one wants to deal with runny, smudgy, or flaky mascara while they're getting that tan on.

Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara - Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara now comes in a waterproof version which means you can use it all year round including during your summer holiday.

Maybelline Colossal Waterproof Mascara - It's curved brush shape brings instant height to your lashes.

Whether you are heading on a summer or tanning in the garden, there is no excuse to not feel glam and good about yourself. We hope you enjoyed our list and please let us know where you are heading to this summer season!
